“I am truly touched by the support extended by the bloggers and media that showed up at today’s event,” said Shah Munir. “This proves that the Pakistani media, be it digital or traditional, supports music and is willing to take extra steps to promote promising talent”.
Also present at the event was Bilal Khan from Moving Images (production house) who will be shooting a documentary capturing some key moments of Shah Munir’s journey at the world’s biggest DJ competition.
The Meet and Greet session began with an overview of the concept behind Red Bull Thre3style; its background, rules, expectations from the World Finals and Shah Munir’s presence at the said event. This was followed by Shah Munir’s entry that was greeted with loud cheers and applause. Shah gave a detailed account of his background in music; shed some light on his style of music and how he felt deeply honored to represent Pakistan at the global DJ competition. “I am truly honored, nothing beats or even comes closer to representing your country’ said Shah Munir. ‘I am excited as I am just a few days away from attending the event. I can’t wait to meet other DJs and talk about the DJ scene in Pakistan.”
Talking about who is his favorite in the DJ Battle and who might emerge victorious Shah Munir said that this is one of the hardest questions anyone could have asked him. He has been thinking about it but he can’t decide on one. Each DJ has his own style and he can’t decide who he would root for.
The Red Bull Thre3style World Finals this time takes place in the heart of Japan i.e. Tokyo. With only fifteen minutes to mix at least three genres of music and demonstrate the level of skill and expertise.
Along with the seventeen national champions, for the first time ever we have a DJ guest from Pakistan. In this unique opportunity Shah Munir will attend the Red Bull Thre3style World Finals in Tokyo not as a participant but will be there to observe and experience one of the biggest, most awaited DJ competitions in the world.
