With the long 4th of July weekend coming up, the one thing that will get your barbecues and parties going strong is great music. Dropping a bland playlist will probably force friends to simply chuckle at your musical tastes. If you're in need for some guidance, we've teamed up with some DJs from the SKAM Artist roster to bring you an explosive playlist for Independence Day.
Hailing from Miami, DJ Irie has been gaining fame as the official DJ for the Miami Heat and his recurring appearances on Good Morning America. His selection of tunes for the party features some current bangers (Kendrick Lamar's "Humble", Luis Fonsi's "Despacito") and a couple of throwbacks (Queen's "Under Pressure", Bell Biv Devoe's "Poison"). After touring as a DJ with acts such as Jason Derulo and French Montana, Jae Murphy decided to break out as an artist with the hit song "You Playin' (This Could Be Us)." For his pick, the Los Angeles artist chose hits from DJ Khaled ("Wild Thoughts") and Drake ("Signs").
Also hailing from the City of Angels is Jamie Iovine, who has worked with the WWE and currently works for Meltdown Comics. The DJ decided to mix up the new school (Sean Paul & Migos' "Body") with the old school (Ice Cube's "Friday"). Since their inception back in 2009, LA Leakers have worked with acts such as Future, Kid Ink and Common. Their picks feature artists such as French Montana ("Unforgettable") and Playboy Carti ("Magnolia ").
Last but not least is Australian DJ Saint Clair, who has been working on some original material set to be unleashed upon clubs in the near future. Her choices include Yo Gotti ("Rake It Up") and Don Mclean ("American Pie").
