Red Bull THRE3STYLE – Een DJ battle als geen ander

Vijftien minuten, twee decks, minimaal drie genres en slechts één kans om het publiek te imponeren. Dat is Red Bull THRE3STYLE. Op vrijdag 10 augustus 2012 vindt deze dj-battle plaats in de Amsterdamse Melkweg. Zes bekende Nederlandse dj’s strijden dan om een plek in de grote finale van Red Bull THRE3STYLE in Chicago.

Momenteel vindt de battle in achttien landen wereldwijd plaats. Vanuit elk land reist iland,n september uiteindelijk één afgevaardigde af naar Chicago. Hier wordt op internationaal niveau gestreden om de felbegeerde titel van ‘Red Bull THRE3STYLE Champion’.

De zes geselecteerde dj’s die Nederland vertegenwoordigen zijn Gomes, Brutuzz, DNS, Goodgrip, Fullscale en Cream. Host van de avond is MC Fit. Een vakjury, bestaande uit Lange Frans, MC Pryme (Armand Corneille) en The Flexican, bepaalt samen met het publiek wie van deze zes talenten het opneemt tegen de internationale top in Chicago. Uniek aan THRE3STYLE is dat de dj’s minimaal drie genres gebruiken in hun mix van vijftien minuten. Daarnaast zijn niet alleen technische skills van belang, maar moet de uiteindelijke winnaar ook in staat zijn om de menigte uit zijn dak te laten gaan.

Laat je verrassen door THRE3STYLE – een battle vol energie waar geen vijf minuten dezelfde zijn.

Cream Ibiza Above & Beyond

World clubbing super-brand Cream kicks off the summer season with a double CD and digital release, Cream Ibiza mixed by award-winning trio Above & Beyond.

As the longest running UK club night on the island, taking over Thursday nights, Cream Ibiza brings together the world’s top DJs and thousands of clubbers to the award winning ‘World’s Best Club’ Amnesia. With mammoth weekly parties that will see Above & Beyond joined by the likes of Paul van Dyk, Eddie Halliwell, Calvin Harris, Sander van Doorn, Laidback Luke, and Example at the club this summer.

Described by DJ Mag as “the biggest electronic DJing and production collective the UK has ever produced,” Jono Grant, Tony McGuinness and Paavo Siljamaki AKA Above & Beyond made an obvious choice for this year’s installment of the Cream compilation series.

Producers, songwriters, DJ’s and owners of the renowned Anjunabeats label, Above & Beyond have remained down-to-earth and as determined as ever despite the numerous accolades, remixing greats like Madonna and Radiohead and selling out shows from Bombay to Brixton Academy. 2011 saw the release of their second studio album Group Therapy. Described by Mixmag as “the artist album of the year”, it topped the dance charts in both the UK and USA.

Now they are set to perform at Cream Ibiza this summer, headlining six dates through June to September. Whether you’re heading over to the White Isle or not, Above & Beyond’s Cream Ibiza mix is essential listening for the summer.

This year’s Cream Ibiza tracklist perfectly reflects the ethos of Above & Beyond, taking in their biggest tried and tested tunes, fan favourites and exclusive new tracks – all guaranteed main room Ibiza material. Alongside hot tracks from the likes of Cosmic Gate, Dirty South, Kyau & Albert and Depeche Mode (Eric Prydz Remix) Cream Ibiza also features exclusive new mixes of Above & Beyond’s Stealing Time (from the critically acclaimed debut album Tri-State) and On My Way To Heaven, plus brand new remixes of Tranquillity Base (aka Above & Beyond)  Razorfish by Jerome Isma-Ae and of the Above & Beyond and Andy Moor classic “Air For Life” by Norin & Rad.

Introducing: DJ Ben Santiago

Ben Santiago is one of the White Isle’s most prolific DJs. Since moving to Ibiza seven years ago he has held a number of enviable residencies and played for the biggest brands in the industry, including; Café del Mar, Cream, Pacha, Base Bar, El Divino, Ibiza Rocks, Cocoon, Amnesia, Es Vive, Manumission, and Hed Kandi – who  have appointed him Ibiza resident for the third year running at their parties at Es Paradis in 2012. He is also an official A&R scout for Hed Kandi / Ministry of Sound, helping compile the music for their world famous compilations.

Internationally, Ben is musical director for Berlin Fashion Week and spins at fashion shows and private soirées for Dolce & Gabbana throughout Europe and Asia alongside saxophonist (and fiancée) Lovely Laura. The pair are also signed to Storm models and perform all over the world at exclusive events for A-list clients such as supermodel Eva Herzigova and Pink Floyd.

Appreciated for his truly Balearic approach (as showcased on his weekly Ministry Of Sound radio show and guest mix on Hed Kandi’s Beach House 2011), Ben is just as passionate spinning eclectic sets at villa and beach parties or on catwalks and yachts as he is delivering straight up house tunes in a club. His success is based on a simple premise: “Whatever the genre, if a track is going to connect with the audience then I’ll play it…”.
