Red Bull Thre3style - Van City Qualifier

What is Red Bull Thre3style you ask? Well I'll attempt to sum up Thre3style in my own words. It's basically an epic event where the best DJ's throughout the world compete locally, nationally and then eventually internationally in the global finals. During the competition each DJ must spin a 15 minute set incorporating at least 3 genres of music. What happens within those next 15 minutes is insane. 10, 50 maybe 100's of different songs being mixed together to create a one of a kind music never heard before. Creativity played out before your eyes and ears. Seriously talented DJ's with seriously impressive skills. I was lucky enough to be asked to shoot the event for Red Bull so I was privy to access all areas in order to make the following images.

Now the action

Big ups to DJ Hedspin pictured above who took out the Vancouver qualifiers and earned his place in the National Finals being held in Toronto.
