Longtime friends of the Dorkaholics, Matthew Hoang and Michael Pham a.k.a. Bass E and DJ Apex now known jointly as Cheezin’ Treez have entered the Sundown DJ Mix Contest for the opportunity to perform at the Sundown Music Festival in Huntington Beach the weekend of September 17th and 18th. Hear the mix here:
The following is a personal message from Bass E:
There comes a point in life where you realize that the people around you might not understand what you truly dream for in life. It’s hard to stay dedicated when you’re grinding away in the shadows for something people might not understand.
6 Years ago, my good friend Michael Pham and I were barely getting the hang DJing. We would practice afterschool in order to make sure that our music and sound was something that we could confidently present to our peers for our very first high school dance. Ever since then, we fell in love with the craft, and have kept music a part of our lives, despite all the other things going on at the time. We sat in our rooms, dreaming of how we could make our sounds better, how to boost our MCing skills, and how to make our productions even more visually enticing.
The biggest dream of ours however, was being able to DJ for a music festival. Finally, we’ve got a sliver of a chance at that opportunity, and are asking our friends and family to help us get there. Please give our mix a listen, and some love. If you like it, click the little heart on the Soundcloud page and send us off towards our dreams!
Good luck to Cheesin’ Treez and hopefully we get to see them at the Sundown Music Festival after they win the Sundown DJ Mix Contest! So be sure to give their mix a listen, let them know how great it is, and give that like button on SoundCloud some love!
Names: Michael Pham & Matthew Hoang
