Tonight (April 1st) is the Triple Threat Grand Finale at Mighty SF. Yes, people….it’s the last Triple Threat DJs’ Residency at Mighty San Francisco.The venue has taken new ownership and will be going through some changes. So to celebrate their 7 year residency, Dj Apollo, Vin-Roc, Shortkut, & Fran Boogie have decided to go out with a bang!! RSVP on eventbrite.com for NO COVER before 11pm and OPEN BAR from 9-10pm! You won’t wanna’ miss this! Shoutouts to Derek Hana & Carey Kopp for their time & service to the Bay Area Music Community!
After winning the San Francisco RedBull Thre3style Championship in 2014, the Triple Threat DJs (the legendary Dj Apollo, the talented Dj Vinroc, & our very own Shortkut) took a trip out to NY a few months back to visit Scratch Dj Academy in Manhattan.
“In addition to demonstrating their epic skills, the guys discussed how they got their start. These guys truly have done it all. From beginning with family weddings, birthday parties, and school dances to the epic presence they have today.”
Today, October 15th is the birthday of our fellow Beat Junkie brother, Jonathan Cruz….better known to the world as Dj Shortkut. Please wish him a Happy Birthday……
This past Wendesday, October 1st was the Redbull Music Academy Culture Clash San Francisco and it was epic! 4 Soundsystems: Dirty Bird, Dub Mission, Tormentia Tropica, & the homies, Triple Threat Djs competed for the coveted clash. Triple Threat consist of our very own Shortkut, the legendary Dj Apollo, the incredible Dj Vinroc, & their mic handler Fran Boogie.
Peep the details & the profiles of the crews here: http://www.magneticmag.com/2014/10/red-bull-music-academy-culture-clash-san-francisco-crews-highlights/
The odds were up against the Triple Threat Djs especially when Dirty Bird brought out the big guns with Dj Craze, Diplo & Major Lazer, Too Short, Pharoahe Monch, & get this…..Daft Punk. Triple Threat had a couple of other surprises of their own: Lyrics Born, Zumbi from Zion I, & Souls Of Mischief….but the real shocker of the night (at least to us) was bringing out the legendary Crystal Waters to perform “Gypsy Woman” live!
Congratulations to our family, the Triple Threat Djs for winning the Redbull Music Academy 2014 Culture Clash San Francisco with such honor…..much deserved!
Whats up folks…..
Thought I would start something in the same vein as our “Throwback Thursdays” Video Series….this time, it’s “Mixtape Mondays”. During these segments, I’m going to post up some of old & new mixes from the crew, as well as the homies, & other mixes that I think that they’re dope. If you’re at work or just cleaning the house, just press play & hopefully you like our latest blog series.
Our first mix is from Shortkut, in honor of him & the Triple Threat DJs competing in the Redbull Music Academy Culture Clash this Wednesday (Oct. 1st) at the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco. This recording is from his live set from The Boiler Room TV audio/visual show……Enjoy!
