The DJ known as Trentino has been making noise all around the world in the year 2013. He is the reigning champ of the 2013 USA Red Bull Thre3style DJ competition, and he just released his winning set from the world preliminary round. Whether you are a DJ or not, it is nearly impossible to deny this dude's skills on the ones and twos. The standout part in his routine comes at 8:59 with some ridiculous finger drumming and live remixing, while keeping the poise of a champion DJ. It wouldn't be surprising if Trentino's name started popping up around the DMC competitions as well, so stay on the lookout for him in 2014
