Triple Threat DJs Biography

Before becoming a trio, the Triple Threat DJs, comprising of legendary DJs ShortkutApollo and Vinroc, all but conquered their genre. They were introduced to the art form as youngsters through mobile DJing and evolved into world-renowned turntablists. Triple Threat represents the future of turntablism, precisely because they've been so instrumental to its storied past. Though they have championship-level skills at scratching and beat-juggling they also know how to rock a party, produce music and create original compositions with two turntables. They are not just djs, turntablists, producers, musicians or club djs, they encompass all aspects. 


Triple Threat released their long awaited debut album "Many Styles" on March 3, 2003 (03/03/03) on Fat Beats Records, BMG. The LP features artists such as Zion I, Rob Swift, Roc Raida, Talib Kweli, Main Flow, Mystic, Goapele, Black Thought, Souls of Mischief, Roc Roo, Planet Asia and Ridgi Gong. "Many Styles" includes hip hop, dance hall, instrumental and turntablist tracks. All tracks on the album are produced by Triple Threat DJs Vinroc, Apollo and Shortkut.

"Many Styles" promises to be a new chapter for the hip hop DJ, the art form's foundation.  - Eric Arnold 

Triple Threat set off mini-earthquakes during every live show. These hip-hop artists drop vinyl on turntables and bulldoze existing songs into new sonic temples. Triple Threat members have elevated themselves to DJ royalty.  - Rob Runett, The Washington Times 

Triple Threat DJs Shortkut, Apollo, and Vinroc are among the most revered DJs in the world. With three world titles and over 45 years of live DJ experience between them, Triple Threat perpetrates an eclectic mix of genres with cutting edge turntable trickery, inciting instant dance floor madness.  - Ink 19 This album represents REAL hip-hop.Bahamadia, First Lady of Hip Hop 

This is a sick album ­ it has so many of the elements of hip hop, and some of the best artists, that keep me believing in the progression of hip hop music, sick beats and solid vocals.Alex Moulton, Eye Ball Media 

Triple Threat best symbolizes what Galactic has been about since its inception: using the soul vocabulary to explore new sounds and grooves, and making a non-stop party of it.Galactic 

Triple Threat has been an important influence on the DJ community. Their live show exposes the importance of all the aspects of DJing. While most "turntablist" soley focus on skill while there on stage, Triple Threat has brought the emphasis back to record selection and takes there audience through a musical journey that all fans of good music can appreciate. Triple Threat is the definition of a well rounded DJ collective.Rob Swift, X-ecutioners
