Taiwan’s next top DJ

What does it take to be the Red Bull Thre3style champion?

Zack agrees. “Telling the story between songs and genres can have as much impact as the technical flare,” he said.

THE FUTURE OF CROSS-GENRE DJING

Bastid, who was in Taiwan last year to showcase his own party-rocking abilities, thinks that the Thre3style battle is having a positive effect on the DJ industry.

“I think it’s making people, especially clubgoers who are younger or less aware of how much work goes into party-rock deejaying, pay more attention to what the DJs are doing in the booth,” Bastid said.

“With the 15-minute Thre3style set, they can have a point of reference for the creativity of what can be done by a DJ. Younger generations, who are growing up with music at their fingertips 24-7, understand that there is an art and value in rocking a party the right way,” he said.
