Andre “Puffy” Parris holds the coveted title of RedBull Thre3style World Champion 2016. From wild-card entrant to subsequently emerging as the most skillful DJ of his era, this gifted turntablist and trailblazer have excelled by creating a unique Caribbean-EDM sound that captivates his thousand-fold audiences.
Born on November 20, 1991, to a family of talented musicians, it was certainly inevitable that bars and beats would course through his veins. What began as a teenage obsession fueled by raw talent would quickly develop into a fruitful career and lasting passion following his early discovery by Dream Real Projects’ CEO and visionary, Matthew “Fewwture” Ashby in 2009.
His performances have also been received by an elite whos-who crowd which includes his compatriot Rihanna where he most recently performed for at the Fenty X Puma pop-up show in New York City and other prominent A-list celebrities such as Amber Rose, J.Cole, Jeremih and the cast of Oxygen’s Bad Girl’s Club. He has also opened for a select list of international performers, sharing the stage with Chase and Status, the UK music-producing duo; Omarion; Rick Ross and Hed Kandi deejays, Andi Norman and Krystalroxx.
However, his biggest spotlight moment on the stage was at the seventh world finals of the RedBull Three3style World Championship in Santiago, Chile on December 17, 2016, where his eclectic musical palette, impressive skills repertoire and compelling stage presence separated him from his competitors and earned the winning vote from world-class masters Nu-Mark, Scratch Bastid, Craze, Z-Trip and DJ Jazzy Jeff.
