Orlando had the distinction of hosting the national finals of the Red Bull Thre3Style DJ competition with Orlando's own DJ Michael "M-Squared" McPherson as one of the judges.

I only managed to catch the opening night (June 21, the Social) of the three-night affair, but thankfully I was able to bear sweet witness to the white-hot set by Tampa turntablist DJ Ku, who completely owned his heat. In addition to technique, the express purpose of the battle was to gauge the contestants' ability to flat-out rock the party. And on both counts, he rocked the shit out of it. I'm talking the entire room and not just his mom (who, it must be noted, was standing right in front of me and also rocking her brains out). His hype, well-arranged set was stacked with tricks and tighter than a virgin nun. Although he was that night's top dog, Ku didn't end up taking the crown. But he repped the FLA real hard and earned a very respectable second place, so big ups to the kid. Seriously, look this cat up.
