The DJ and cultural association RDYO DJs, formerly known as Radyoyo T3S Muzik & Media, was founded in 1996 with the principal aim of promoting and developing modern organic and electronic music forms. With no fewer than 12 active members (including DJs, eMCees, producers, musicians, promoters, managers, graphic and web designers), the association has hosted numerous club events, with guests hailing mainly from the USA and the UK (Guru of Gangstarr, Pharcyde, Breakbeat Era, EZ Rollers, Jeru The Damaja, Jazzanova, LTJ Bukem, Die&Dynamite, Afu-Ra & Perverted Monks, Smith&Mighty, DAs Efx, The Scratch Perverts, and many, many more).

The programme of RDYO DJs encompasses music production (the region's most established hip hop MCs Murat&Jose, breakbeat production team Kla-Sick, and other individual musicians), FM radio broadcasting (broadcasting four times a week, concentrating on reggae, drum and bass, hip hop, breakbeat & soul, and syndicating Ninja Tunes Solid STeel & Good Lookings Cosmic Show), web radio broadcasting (since September 2003), club promotion (independent club nights with resident DJs as well as guests from abroad), and festival promotion (Breakbeatnikk BB2K). In 2004 RDYO DJs launched their programme at Cvetličarna; today they perform at such venues as Klub K4, Gala hala, Brooklyn Hengarnica, and many others.

Breakbeatnikk BB2K, the first prestige whole-day music festival organised by the association in 1999, presented contemporary organic and electronic drum and bass and hip hop music to Ljubljana audiences. On the open-air stage of Križanke, guests from the UK and USA appeared alongside Slovene performers. Other elements of breakbeat culture were featured in this festival, including graffiti (an exhibition of graffiti artists from Slovenia and Croatia), break dancing, and DJ showcases.

RDYO DJs gave rise to the independent record label and production studio T3S MUZIK, whose first release – a CD by Murat&Jose – proved a huge success. The association also produces music for advertising campaigns and fashion shows.

Every year members of the RDYO DJs make a selection of 30 breaking drum and bass/jungle classics and publish them on their website, where visitors can vote for their favourites. The selected Top 10 winning tracks are presented live at one of the crew's DJ events.
