Big Once (Red Bull Thre3style US Champion)
Disc Jockey, remix expert, and 2011 Red Bull Thre3style U.S. Champion, Big Once has been mixing and cutting wax for over thirteen years. He got his start as a teenager; spinning house parties, putting out mixtapes, and working with several local bands and emcees. Big Once broke into the Chicago hip-hop scene while still in college and since he has steadily been building his rep as one of the most well-respected and in-demand DJs in Chicago and across the country.

While most of his peers have spent years perfecting their look and brand, Big Once has spent that time in the lab. With a studio full of records and massive digital library, Big Once’s fast-paced, dynamic sets touch on every genre imaginable; all mixed with the precision, dexterity, and programming of a U.S. Champion. In a scene where anyone with a laptop and some software can claim to be a DJ, it is Once’s world-beating turntablist skills, unique live remixes, and energetic stage show that set him apart from others. These qualities have afforded Once to perform alongside everyone from the Z-Trip to Roy Ayers, headline clubs from Chicago to Los Angeles, direct the Vocalo 89.5 FM DJ collective, record with legends like Pete Rock, and teach at the University of Chicago.

Etching out the blueprint for the future of emceeing, ADaD is the next breakout artist to enter into the rap game. Championed by the likes of Exile and Madlib, he is the nexus between hip-hop’s Golden Era and the new movements derived from today’s hip-hop.

Defying lyrical gravity, beats serve as ADaD’s playground, rocking verses with a distinct musical prowess that has got the music industry on lock. Transforming his flow into his own instrument, the rising artist’s acumen behind the mic resonates an on-time swagger and compelling rhyme schemes that take unexpected direction–proving ADaD’s inexplicable gift and raw talent.

Repping Chicago’s south side, ADaD is also member of Eurolythimics, but is quickly changing the game as a solo artist coming into his own. Dubbed the next hip-hop hopeful, he thematically brings fans back to self by preaching an acceptance of who you are. Executing wordplay that mainstream hip-hop compensates for overproduction and posturing, ADaD shares stages with some of the largest names in hip-hop with party-style performances never having to compromise his art or message.
