You Gots To Grill – Vol. 8
“To Pimp A Butterfly Shrimp”
No shows booked at the moment.
I’m heading back to see my Canadian peoples for a double dose and help promote Red Bull THRE3STYLE. If you’re in Montreal or Quebec City, you’ve got some major parties that you don’t want to miss.
Dagobert – Quebec City
To help promote their THRE3STYLE DJ battle, Red Bull booked me for gigs in Quebec City and Montreal last month. It was my first time in Quebec City and I got to play with the 2013 Canadian Thre3style champion Adam Doubleyou at Maurice Nightclub for their 20th anniversary party. Everyone in QC was lovely and the party was fantastic. I can’t wait to go back and explore more. QC has a very European feel (it’s 400 years old) and people have referred to it as “Practice France”.
Moomba in Montreal was crazy as usual (in case you couldn’t tell from the video). They book some of the biggest names in the biz and provide top-notch hospitality. I’ll be seeing both cities again sometime next year, keep an eye out. Click the photo below to check out the full gallery of all the photos.

A few years ago, Four Color Zack came out of nowhere and started making us all feel like we might wanna quit DJing. Before I could finish my coffee, he was the 2012 Red Bull Thre3style World Champion. The best part of this tale is, as you’ll learn from this interview, Zack is one of the nicest, most humble and hardest-working DJs in the game. If anyone should be the ambassador for DJing, this guy deserves that crown for sure. Zack recently chiseled some time out of his crazy schedule to sit down with me for a coffee and talk about becoming a DJ by way of a metal band, his love of social media and staying positive as a DJ.

Last month I got to compete for the 3rd time in Red Bull’s annual international DJ battle, THRE3STYLE. If you’re not familiar, it’s a battle where DJs perform a 15-minute set consisting of at least 3 genres of music. It’s a great concept and it really brings out some super creative talent from around the world. For more info check out the THRE3STYLE site or watch my video from 2011.
There was some serious competition this year and it was great to see sets from Portland’s best, most of which I haven’t had the chance to see live yet. In the end, I brought home the silver, but I had a great time doing it. Thanks to Red Bull for putting on a great event, everyone that competed, all the fans in attendance and Aaron Rogosin and Matthew Kort for the photos.
It’s that time again. Red Bull is holding the regional qualifiers for their annual THRE3STYLE international DJ battle. If you’re not familiar, it’s a battle where DJs perform a 15-minute set consisting of at least 3 genres of music. It’s a great concept and it really brings out some super creative talent from around the world. For more info check out the THRE3STYLE site or watch my video below from 2011. I’ll be battling against 7 of Portland’s top DJs to move on to the next round in San Francisco. If you’re in the area, I hope you’ll come support me and the event!

Red Bull THRE3STYLE this year was awesome. Love and thanks to everyone that came out and supported me as well as all the other DJs. There was some awesome competition but I took 2nd place. The cherry on top was an all-vinyl headlining performance by the legendary DJ P. It was mind blowing to watch him work. I had the homie Kris Mortensen shoot some video of the comp and chop up a recap. Check it below!
DJ Zimmie – 2011 Red Bull THRE3STYLE Video
I was honored last year to be selected as a competitor in Red Bull THRE3STYLE, a worldwide DJ battle showcasing some of the top talent around the globe. There are only 2 rules in THRE3STYLE; play at least 3 genres of music and ROCK THE CROWD! I took 3rd place in 2010 so I’ve been invited to compete again this year. Come out and support me as well as some other great DJs from Pittsburgh!
