We caught up with 2013’s Red Bull Thre3Style Atlanta champion, DJ EU, to get a little insight on this year’s goals, what makes him stand out from the rest, and also a tiny look inside of some of the crazy things DJs do to get the crowd moving, check it out!
Q: Aside from winning, what was your favorite part from last year’s Thre3Style competition?
A: Meeting so many great DJs during and after the battle.
Q: Is there anything you plan on doing differently this year?
A: I plan on making it to the Finals.
Q: What advice would you give this year’s participating DJs?
A: Make sure your set reflects your style as a DJ & be unique.
Q: Do you have a favorite track that you like to keep in your back pocket to get the crowd going?
A: I have this routine that brings the latin element into my routine. Love doing it, it brings flavor into my set. Shhhh!
Q: Do you drink while you spin? If so, what is your beverage of choice?
A: I try not to drink while I’m DJ’ing, but if I do it’s usually Vodka RedBull or Beer. Also water, very important to hydrate.
Q: How do you feel about people in the DJ booth? Posse or no posse?
A: I don’t mind it as long as they don’t hit, spill, or push anything regarding the DJ’s set up or the light guy.
Q: What’s your craziest DJ booth story?
A: A girl bought a champagne bottle and sprayed it toward me. Got on the turntables and a little on my laptop. Music kept playing.
Q: What made you want to get back into the Red Bull 3Style?
A: I want to defend the title & also make it further into the competition this year. I also want to put Atlanta on the map. Not so much in the Hip-Hop aspect that it is already recognized for. I want to be that “Atlanta DJ” that has residencies in Vegas.
Q: Would you rather play YMCA or The Electric Slide? Your life depends on it, you have to choose.
A: YMCA but why not the Macarena?
Q: What is the most you’ve been paid to play a song? And do you remember what song it was?
A: Between $100 – $200. One was Justin Bieber’s – Baby & Nas – Hate Me Now.
