DJ Apparel: The Baseball Hat



So I watched the 24K Magic video the other day, and naturally thought about how popular that XXIV hat will get. And then it dawned on me - the baseball cap can be a key accessory for any dj. Why? Because it's like a window into your identity. Allow me to explain, and also highlight some interesting headwear you might like.

Simply put, a hat shows off your style and what you're into. When I was a dj, I almost always wore one. My favorite was a Timberland trucker model with an adjustable back:



Comfortable, breathable, and as you found out in my post about footwear, I wanted to show some brand allegiance by matching up with the waterproof boots. Also, no need to comb your hair before going out. Anyway, had to toss the hat when the brim got way too ripped up (after about 6-7 years), but it more than served its purpose.

Some other hats I'm feeling at the moment:




Can't go wrong with an original Adidas snapback. Iconic brand, and a safe choice that should fit right in wherever you spin or hang out.




Never heard of the Goorin Bros. brand before, but the Naughty Lamb is a simple design that tells people you're a little different. Plus, it makes me think of Black Sheep's The Choice Is Yours, which never fails to get my head nodding.

The Nike SB Performance Trucker Snapback looks like a light, breathable hybrid and has a deep, vibrant red that makes it stand out. I've never even touched a skateboard in my life, and I'd consider wearing this.


Finally, it's playoff season in baseball. If you spin at the local sports bar and the home team is in the mix, can't go wrong with a fitted that shows you're down with the cause. Call me old-fashioned, but I'd peel that sticker off before putting it on.

So that's all I've got for now. Will do some more window-shopping from time to time, and post up anything that catches my eye. In the meantime, take the poll below and let me know what you're feeling:

Lucky You - Eminem ft. Joyner Lucas

tempo: 76-77 bpm bpm range: 75 bpm  to  80 bpm the dj's take: I was wondering why the phrase 'Lucky You' sounded familiar... then remembered my Lucky Brand jeans say this behind the zipper: So let's say you're on a date. Things are going well, relations commence, and your companion sees that message. Cute? Or a mood killer? Either way, that's a lot of bravado to live up to. Brings to mind Brick Tamland in Anchorman: As for the track, try mixing with: Bam - Jay-Z ft. Damian Marley PIE - Future ft. Chris Brown Stitches - Shawn Mendes download or stream Lucky You: amazon itunes

ROCKSTAR - DaBaby ft. Roddy Ricch

tempo: 90 bpm The DJ's Take: Song #1 in our chapter 51 mix (made in Logic Pro X ): Big bass, so I had to be strategic about where to transition out and into Rihanna's Work . A little more of an in-depth look, plus some thoughts on its shelf life in a dj's rotation: Bottom line, when nightlife at college bars picks up again, this will likely be in heavy rotation.
