Last Wednesday, Nov. 7, Associated Student Productions hosted a DJ competition. All students were invited to showcase their skills or vote for their favorite DJ. Three students competed, and DJ C-LOS hosted the competition.

The event took place in Ballroom A, on the top floor of the Student Center. DJ C-LOS kicked off the evening at 7 p.m. as students entered the ballroom. Students were handed glow sticks and light-powered wands to dance along with the disco lights.

The first DJ to go on was Chance Lujan, a junior History major. Lujan goes by the stage name DJ RATCHETSATRNBOY. Lujan’s set was a mix of mostly R&Bn with a few classic hip-hop songs mixed into the set. Lujanhas been DJing for four months and was feeling excited to compete for the first time. Students surrounded the DJ booth and waved their wands as Lujan competed.

The next competitor was Noel Aleman, a senior Business Management major. Aleman has been DJing since the age of ten and goes by the stage name DJ D.T. Aleman started his set with the theme song of Squid Games, a Netflix series, which then dropped into Do It To It, a song by ACRAZE. Aleman had the crowd singing along throughout his set. “I love getting a good crowd reaction; it’s what keeps me going,” said Aleman.

The final competitor was Zoe Libby, a sophomore English major. Libby brought a wide variety of music, including 2000s hits, club hits and pop. Libby goes by the stage name DJ ZOZO On That Beat. Libby has been DJing since seventeen after attending DJ Camp. “I don’t really play live that often, so I wanted to get some experiences, plus I thought it would be fun to do,” said Libby.

After all three competitors had showcased their skills, Brittney Glor, a senior biochemistry major, counted the votes. Glor came up with the idea for a DJ competition and has worked towards putting on this event all semester.

With the help of members from the Student Center Operations and ASP, Glor’s idea came to fruition. While the crowd waited for the winner to be announced, DJ C-LOS kept the music going. DJ C-LOS has been DJing for SSU for a year and a half. He first got into DJing during quarantine and has not stopped since. “I liked seeing the other DJs; they were really good, and I enjoyed watching them DJ, especially since I enjoy spinning myself,” said DJ C-LOS.

At 9 p.m., it was announced that Aleman, DJ D.T., was the winner of the competition and won the opportunity to DJ for future ASP events.
