DJing has grown from being a skill simply based on entertaining people with recorded music, to become one the modern world's most popular and celebrated art-forms. DJs around the globe pursue their skills and techniques with obsessive vigor, sourcing never-heard-before works of musical genius, learning to beat-match so well that each tracks flows seamlessly into the next and pushing the art of turntablism or scratch-DJing to the point that they can literally re-invent a song on the spot. Yet so many spinners forget that the founding principle of DJing has never changed: DJs are there to entertain people with recorded music, in layman's terms, "Rock the party with records".

Red Bull Thre3Style is a DJ contest that celebrates innovation behind the decks.Each DJ has to play a selection of at least three genres or styles of music in 15 minutes. It doesn't matter what genres of music are chosen so long as they can be blended or sliced together in a way that makes the crowd erupt. Judged on their track-selection, technical skills, creativity and most importantly their ability to bring the house down, it doesn't matter if they know all the DJing tricks and techniques in the book. What does matter is how good they are at filling the dancefloor with people eager to hear what they're going to pull out of their record bacg next.

Almost a year ago I had the opportunity to spin for a tribute to Roy Ayers featuring Roy himself, Pete Rock, The Robert Glasper Experiment & Stefon Harris. The performance on stage and on the turntables was dedicated to the many interpretations of Roy's music.

One of the most legendary and most influential songs Roy Ayers ever made is "Everybody Loves The Sunshine." I put together a 15 minute mix complete with photos from the event featuring interpretations by 9th Wonder, D'Angelo, Dr. Dre, Erykah Badu and Mary J. Blige. Enjoy...
