Spinning for the Street Fighter World Championships

I’m thrilled to announce that I’ll be DJing at the Red Bull Kumite Street Fighter World Championships. This is an incredible live two-day event taking place on May 22nd and 23rd! It will be broadcast live worldwide from the Red Bull Gaming Sphere in Shoreditch, on Twitch and YouTube.

The anticipation is building as players from all around the globe have been flown in to compete for the prestigious trophy, in a gaming event akin to the Olympics. I can’t wait to bring my energy and music to this live event, as it’s been too long since we’ve all been able to enjoy that electric atmosphere.

The music

Preparing for this set as been quite something! As it is a live broadcast, I can not use any music that has been released. Even though they holds all the rights! That’s because youtube and twitch algorithms may shut it down to check the copyright and the risk is not worth it! That means every single track you hear will be completely fresh to your ears! It has been a huge undertaking, since I was given thousands of tracks with only a number for a name! I had to listen to each one and name, categories and learn it! Only by knowing your music, can you feel where to play it.

The event

Red Bull Kumite London will kick off with an exclusive showcase of the new fighting game Guilty Gear Strive, featuring competitions with pros, in-depth interviews with developer Arc System Works, and more. On Sunday, the Street Fighter V tournament will take place. It will involve 15 of the greatest players the game has to offer, plus one additional UK player who will earn their spot by winning the UK Last Chance Qualifier on 2nd May.

I’m honoured to be part of such a fantastic event, working alongside We Are Collider and dedicated team who’s committed to bringing the excitement and passion of the Fighting Game Community to life. I’ll be sharing behind-the-scenes moments, so be sure to stay tuned and follow my journey as we get closer to the event.

You won’t want to miss the Red Bull Kumite London event, so mark your calendars and join us live on the 22nd and 23rd of May at twitch.tv/redbull and youtube.com/redbullgaming. Let’s celebrate the world of competitive gaming together and cheer on these incredible players as they showcase their skills on the global stage. See you there!
