DJ Ollie Des from SG
DJ Shiftee from USA NYC
DJ Craze from USA MIAMI
DJ J Espinosa from USA SF

ADM: What's your take on Turntablism in DJing today?
AV: It used to be a necessity for Hip Hop DJs back in the day. For a period, it lost relevance in the past decade. But now DJs from all walks of life and genres are using turntablism to musically enhance their sets which is dope.
ADM: What was your favourite Redbull 3Style Moment?
AV: Loved the stage in Taipei last year and the atmosphere. I love it when 3style DJs have a strong closing like J espinosa classic songs to all I do is win section, 4 colour zack’s USA section that got the crowd crazy, Shintaro’s Mario section, Eskei’s Do it Again dubplate.
ADM: What can we look forward to seeing on the 23rd?
AV: Something fresh and unique!
