WORTH THE HYPE: Charlie Hedges
DJ Charlie Hedges’ star is on the rise – hells, Justin Timberlake’s a fan – but how does she do it? Look caught up with her to find out…
Hi Charlie! What are your tips for the perfect party playlist? Maybe start with tracks that are quite chilled. As people have a couple of lemonades they like to sing, so put in some familiar tracks. And the best song for the end of the night? Kaleidoscope – which is my brand new single! It’s quite vibey. What do you like to play most? My all-time favourite is Faithless – Insomnia. I played it at Eden, Ibiza the other night. It’s an old track but you can reinvent it. How do you look so good when you’re clearly sweating buckets? I carry wet wipes. When it’s hot, you’re going to look a little bit messy. But if you’re enjoying yourself, I think that everyone can be excused! What’s the weirdest moment you’ve had while you’ve been Djing? I was playing a festival a couple of years ago. The guy after me had his team come and set up, and they ejected mine! The music just cut out. Celebrity fans? Who are your favourites? We had Justin Timberlake in and he’s the nicest guy – so chilled. Who’s your dream person that you’d love to DJ with or teach to DJ? You know what, another girl! We need more girls. Let’s go for Rihanna. She’d be a sick DJ. I’ll teach her how!
