Chang


"I am trying to make people more aware of the power of music, especially the kind that makes you move. Maybe some can take that experience on the dancefloor to see that we can work together as a race, if we just drop our differing ideas for a moment to see what is really there. Music is one of the best ways to do this to the human mind." ~ Selekta Chang

Selekta Chang’s roots lie in his Cuban family being exposed at an early age to his parents collection of disco, soul, rock, salsa, and funk records. His first musical instrument was the drums where he performed percussion in a symphonic classical band while in Jr. High. This eventually led to his interest in djing while one day watching “The Buffalo Gals” music video on MTV. It was the scratching sound he heard that lead to his curiosity on what it meant to mix records. Around that time in Miami his cousin was a disco dj, and it was his music that motivated Chang even more to pursue the art of the mixtape.

What Chang is best known for though is his residency at Simons! There he played with djs like Laurent Garnier, Felix Da Housecat, Deep Dish, Green Velvet, Richie Hawtin, John Aquaviva, Mark Farina, John Digweed, Danny Tenaglia, DJ Pierre, Dubtribe, Doc Martin..

Never constituting to one sound expect elements of disco, soul, afro-funk, electro, house, techno, hip hop, to indie rock in his sets. Expressing such diverse sounds that it excites & entices his fans with the unknown & unexpected.

His dj travels have surpassed the borders of the USA to Formula One in Bahrain, FM4 Radio in Vienna, Beach Party in Beirut, SQ Club & Piekarnia in Poland, Treasure Beach Jamaica, Download Festival in Slovakia, to the legendary Cocoon Club in Frankfurt, Germany.

Charity is where his heart is like his involvement with Project Ahimsa, a charity that spreads musical instruments to underprivileged youth around the globe. He was 2011-2012's Mr. X for The Red Bull Music Academy in West Florida, and a co-founder of the Street Music Workshop at The Moses House in Sulphur Springs, Fl.
