Special performance by Just Blaze capped off the night at Toronto's Sound Academy

TORONTO, Nov. 13, 2011 /CNW/ - The stage was set for 11 of Canada's top DJ at Sound Academy as they battled it out for a chance become the nation's top DJ as well as to represent Canada in the Red Bull Thre3style in Vancouver this December.   It was hands up and head bops for nearly 1,000 partygoers who packed the dance floor and cheered on their favourites.   But in the end, Vancouver's own Hedspin killed it on the decks and impressed the esteemed panel of judges consisting of Grahmzilla, Jonathon Ramos, Grand Theft, DJ Dopey and Jesse Walton earning his spot in the World Finals. "Tonight was crazy!  Canada has some sick DJs." expressed award winning DJ Dopey.  After Hedspin was presented the ultimate title, Just Blaze took centre stage capping off the night.

Known for its eclectic music scene and the country's top party destinations, Toronto was the perfect setting to host the Red Bull Thre3style National Finals. The 11 DJs, consisted of Creeasian (Edmonton), Hedspin (Vancouver), Hipnotic (Winnipeg), Mensa (Toronto), Kid Mk (London), Kid SL (Ottawa), Plaeboi (Halifax), Hatchmatik (Montreal), Adam Doubleyou (Quebec City), and defending 2010 Champion Drastik (Ottawa).   They were tasked with performing a 15-minute set that included at least three different musical genres. The judges had the difficult job of selecting the winner based on track selection, creativity, mixing skills, and stage presence and crowd reaction.  "I'm in shock."  Said Hedspin.  "There were so many great DJs tonight from all over the country that repped hard.  I'm very thankful that I won."

Hedspin ignited the dance floor with his bounce music, which brought the house down and wowed the judges.  Drastik, 2010 National Champion was beat out by Hedspin and came in second place while Toronto's own Mensa earned third position.  Hosted by Curtis Santiago, Hedspin will compete in his home turf as the World Finals take place in Vancouver, BC this December where he will meet 18 of the world's best party rocker DJs.
