On Wednesday, October 17th, the race to this year’s Red Bull 3Style World Championship continued in Philadelphia. Six amazingly talented DJs battled it out for the title of 2018 USA National Champ. Congratulations to the winner, SF Bay Area native, J. Espinosa!
Inside a packed 1000-person capacity nightclub, attendees watched as the USA finalists took the stage one by one for their 15-minute sets. Competitors included Javin, Chris Villa, IFTW, ADMC, Dynamix, and J. Espinosa.
All competitors proved worthy of the battle by demonstrating creative music selections, scratch tricks, and even a few disses. Judges for the evening included Four Color Zack (2012 World Champ), Byte (2015 World Champ), and Ease (2017 USA Champ). After a quick deliberation, the results came in placing Chris Villa in 3rd place, followed by Dynamix in 2nd, and Espinosa in 1st.
This win for Espinosa marks his second Red Bull 3Style title; he also won the USA National Champion title back in 2015. Since then, Espinosa has performed as the official DJ of the NFL’s Oakland Raiders, played in countless nightclubs around the world, and even rocked a set for the renowned online music show, Boiler Room.
Espinosa and finalists from all over the world will head to Taipei, Taiwan in January 2019 to compete for this year’s Red Bull 3Style World Champ title. Check out photos from the event below and stay tuned to our blog for more DJ competition updates.
