The Star (St. Lucia) - Life Begins 2 Nite - - CONTENTS - - Red Bull

DJ Puffy from Bar­ba­dos has been crowned the new Red Bull Thre3style World Cham­pion. Af­ter a week of qual­i­fiers, the Grand Fi­nal took place at the Vélo­dromo del Es­ta­dio Na­cional in San­ti­ago, Chile, a week ago. The sev­enth World Fi­nals saw a thou­sand-strong crowd gather to­gether un­der the blis­ter­ing-hot sun to wit­ness some of the best party-start­ing DJs on the planet vie for the pres­ti­gious ti­tle. Among those com­pet­ing were wild-card en­trant Trap­ment (re­plete with Justin Bieber T-shirt and bear­ing mu­si­cal gifts cov­er­ing ev­ery­thing from global bass vibes to chart pop), JFB from the UK, Aus­tralia's very own Beast Mode and You-Ki rep­re­sent­ing Ja­pan. How­ever, it was DJ Puffy who was judged to be the best at rock­ing the crowd with an eclec­tic choice of tunes and a com­pelling stage pres­ence. “I am an en­ergy fac­tory, I'm over­whelmed,” said the 25-year-old af­ter win­ning the ti­tle. “I will carry the torch the best I can as the best DJ in the world for the next year.” The com­pe­ti­tion also saw guest sets from the judg­ing panel; world-class masters Nu-Mark, Scratch Bastid, Craze, Z-Trip and DJ Jazzy Jeff.
