I’m a huge fan of Hey Champ, they may be my favorite music trio from Chicago. A couple weeks back, we introduced you to them with their best original material. Now here’s five of the best songs they are either featured in or they have remixed.

Let’s begin with their electro-pop remix to Mike Posner‘s “Cooler Than Me”. It’s got a pretty cool vibe, mostly enjoy this because I love the original so much. Although I prefer the original, this is a minimalistic remix that provides a change of pace than all the other versions of “Cooler Than Me”. DOWNLOAD

Next comes a song Hey Champ is featured in, “Getting You Off”, which is by 80kidz. Another pop song with smooth enjoyable instrumentals, almost reminds me of Empire Of The Sun but more relaxed vocals. Download

Next comes one of my favorite Passion Pit songs, “Little Secrets”, which Hey Champ remixed by changing the instrumentals to a downtempo vibe. If you like Passion Pit, you will really enjoy this! DOWNLOAD

Hidden Gem: Hey Champ *Electronic-pop variety

Shout out to Weapons of Audio for telling me about Hey Champ, a Chicago trio that has genre-blending sound with an electronic-base. Hey Champ actually has a connection to Lupe Fiasco and has gained praise from many other Chicago contemporary artists including The Cool Kids (featured below). However with the connections and work they have done with mainstream artists, their music hasn’t achieved the success they deserve.

Here’s a little bit about Hey Champ‘s sound which I got off their facebook:

The band incorporates influences from disco, house and indie rock, while combining the raw energy of Cheap Trick and the synth-heavy productions of Giorgio Moroder and Trevor Horn.

They do originals and remixes so for this post I will give you three favorites that are Hey Champ originals.
