Trayze competes at the Red Bull Thre3style US Finals in Philadelphia on Aug. 11, 2016. (Tim Blackwell)
If you follow the Red Bull Thre3style DJ competition, you’ve most likely heard of Trayze. The Washington, D.C. native is this year’s US champ and was a wild card finalist in the 2014 world championship. He’s also an instructor at the Beat Refinery DJ and production school, which has partnered with DJcityTV for a series called Turntable Techniques. And when Trayze isn’t competing in battles or teaching folks how to use Ableton Live, he can be found rocking clubs around the US. Below are five must-have items that he always carries in his DJ bag.
“This may be my favorite piece of mobile studio gear. Paired with my Ultimate Ears UE-7 in-ear monitors, it’s the most incredible listening experience ever. It’s battery-powered and wireless with Bluetooth!”
“I carry small pieces of jade, turquoise, and moonstone. They’re gifts from my wife; you never know when you’ll need energy or extra good luck!”
“The E5770 provides LTE speed anywhere in the world. It works with all SIM card sizes, and I can charge my iPhone with it for like five times. It supports 10 devices at once!”
“I can’t tell you how many times I’ve brushed my teeth in the back of an Uber. Maybe my wife is trying to tell me something…”
“Since I travel with a pretty small laptop, it’s essential that I have more USB ports and other inputs and outputs, especially if I want to use HID mode with CDJs or use multiple MIDI controllers. It has video in/out and a sound card!”
