Before becoming a trio, the Triple Threat DJs, comprising of legendary DJs Shortkut, Apollo 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.
