Hey Champ


Chicago Trio Hey Champ were recently invited to take part in remixing their friends Gemini Club's new single "Ghost" as part of the run up to that group's new album release. Hey Champ infused the single with their signature futuristic sound, taking a stellar original to a parallel dimension.

Gemini Club returned the favor with a frosty back room remix version of Hey Champs hit single "Cold Dust Girl", from their recently released debut album Star. The record has been praised by the likes of Venus, Time Out Chicago, Pop Matters, and the Wall Street Journal for their "infectious synth pop". They're currently on tour showcasing material from the album with energetic performances that had even the most bashful crowds moving. "They brought the house down," wrote the LA Weekly about a performance in Los Angeles last month. "Armed with only a synthesizer, drum kit, and guitar these guys have put together a debut album of well-crafted, '80s tinged dance pop."
