Rotating Topic of the week: EDM Champion question for us

  • Question from Sammi on Instagram - What is the art of DJing? What makes a good DJ set and how do artist’s productions feed into that?

Note: The rotating topic segment is new to this season of the show! Every week there will be a different topic. Topics rotate between a history lesson, live event or culture stories, a blind question for Alec or Samir, or Anti-Plur.


Samir: Diskull // Soundcloud // Instagram // Twitter // Human feat. Echoes (Joel Cruz and Diskull remix) (track)

Alec: Azzecca // Soundcloud // Instagram // Twitter // I’ve Been Waiting
