The first night of DJ du­elling be­gins at the Great Hall. In­ter­na­tional con­tenders square off; then Canada’s own Kid Koala (also of alt hiphop group Del­tron3030) takes over. Plus, Shortkut adds a video set and Toronto’s TurnStylez takes a spin.

In­ter­na­tional win­ners won’t be the only ones com­pet­ing on Thre3style’s sec­ond qual­i­fier night at the Vir­gin Mo­bile Mod Club. A slightly higher-pro­file battle will go down be­tween East Coast Canadian kid Skratch Bastid and Jazzy Jeff, the DJ who’s spent the most time get­ting thrown out of a Bev­erly Hills man­sion by Un­cle Phil.

The tour­na­ment con­tin­ues at the Hox­ton, with sets by lo­cals Torro Torro and Cal­gary’s Small­town DJs. The main at­trac­tion is Mon­treal’s A-Trak, who founded Fool’s Gold and has per­formed at the Gram­mys. Hey, if he’s good enough for Kanye….

The fi­nal qual­i­fier night goes down at the Dan­forth Mu­sic Hall with two hip-hop leg­ends in the house. In the early 90s, Ali Sha­heed Muham­mad of A Tribe Called Quest and Maseo of De La Soul ruled New York hip-hop with cre­ativ­ity, pos­i­tiv­ity and Afro­cen­tric­ity. Tonight, the Na­tive Tongues broth­ers de­ter­mine who’s tops at the turnta­bles.

It all comes down to this. Thre3style moves to Kool Haus to ac­com­mo­date larger crowds, and the fi­nal­ists will battle for the crown and in­ter­na­tional brag­ging rights. But it doesn’t end there. Ottawa pow­wow step­pers A Tribe Called Red and Toronto’s own remix masters Keys N’ Krates keep the party go­ing till late.
