FREEDOM FOR THE FUNK: Champion Sound Takeover: Lumin, 9pm

By Giovanna Stallings-Blanche posted Feb 08, 2011 at 05:08 PM

Week 3: Lumin (Champion Sound)

with Manuvers hosting and myself (Giovanna) on the board.


Miami New Times:

"Champion Sound was formed by DJs Sire Esq., Kems, and Lumin as a collective featuring a rotating cast of topnotch talent, one that owes as much to the beat on the street as it does to the mood of a bedroom. In other words, the Champion sound is both sinuous and sexy. And it makes for one mad night out on the town.

In fact, Lumin takes his name from the Latin word for light. This light has led Lumin's way since before he got out of his teens. The place was Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Lumin, an Army brat born in Newport News, Virginia, and raised all over the country, was asked to step in on the decks while a DJ pal of his took a break. Lumin didn't have his own records on hand; still, he was equipped with enough know-how and daring to pull it off. And once he saw how innately he moved the crowd, the spin was in him for good."
