DJ Joune & The Beats Behind The Ballers

Recently, Billboard took a look inside the sounds behind the stars in the NBA, and uncovered the truth about what it means to be an NBA DJ, including the pressures and glories of making sure the energy is just right all game long.

What some may view as only background music, the reality is that the role of an NBA DJ is a sport all its own. With transitions requiring precise coordination and changes of the tide happening instantaneously, NBA DJs are pressured to select the right song at the right moment for the right length of time throughout the duration of the game, which can sometimes span over three hours. From joyful triumphant wins to consolation after a tough loss, the game-time DJ makes all the difference in impacting both the players and fans energy.

Each NBA team has their own house DJ, who curates the vibe throughout the stadium before, during, and after every home game. For the Utah Jazz, that person is DJ Joune. Tune in to what Billboard uncovered as his essential songs, peak moments and other winning memories from their work selecting the soundtracks for each season:

What’s your go-to song to pump up the crowd?

“Make My Day” by Coi Leray and David Guetta.

What’s the craziest game or play you’ve seen at work?

When the Jazz scored 145 points against the Raptors.

What’s the best part of your job?

Knowing that I am creating a unique and unforgettable experience of joy and memories for all the attendees.
