Making the Cutz


At the end of an intense Red Bull Thre3Style Competition at downtown’s Voyeur, the last DJ standing was Chris Cutz, who walked away with $5,000 and a chance to compete in the West Regional final in Seattle on February 25. Cutz got the nod from a judging panel that included DJs Jazzy Jeff, Z-Trip and A-Trak. The competition’s national finals are this spring in Los Angeles.

It was the first time Cutz, who’s been in San Diego since 1999, entered a competition. “I was a little nervous in the beginning,” he says. “I’m used to being in front of big crowds, but it’s different when you know people are analyzing you.”
