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:

Links: Made with Logic Pro at 72 bpm Fun little instrumental blend of Bryson Tiller's Always Forever , which we used in mix 66 , and Mariah Carey's Do You Think of Me , which ended up on the cutting room floor.

4th of July (Fireworks) - Kelis

tempo: 124 bpm the DJ's take: In terms of energy and key/note progression, I feel like this one could go well with Ne-Yo's Let's Go , Bingo Players' Cry Just A Little , Flo Rida's I Cry , and maybe the Day N Nite - Crookers Remix . Fast and danceable, with a buzzy, hypnotic bass. Definitely worth a spin in a poolside dance mix. download or stream 4th of July (Fireworks): amazon dj cheat sheet playlist
