Weekend Playlist: Hey Champ’s Music Roundup

Janice

Not to offend my DJ friends, but I don’t understand how DJing works per se. There are remixes, playlists, mix tapes, and mashups to be “spun” at gigs, parties, and sets. Actually, “spinning” doesn’t even make sense anymore considering most DJ sets are done on iTunes over vinyl. Personally, I set my iPod to shuffle with the criss-crossing arrows and call it a DJ set. Just like how the fax machine works, DJing is a mystery to me.

However, with all that said, it is a true find when you listen to genuine mashup DJ producing. Hey Champ provides one of those instances. Remixing the likes of Passion Pit, opening for Justice, and collaborating with The Cool Kids, Hey Champ has established themselves as brilliant tastemakers in the dance community. Check out their music playlist so you too can work your way towards becoming a DJing influencer!
