Hailing from the humble Hibiscus Coast, Jodie Champion knows her way around a few things… Throwin’ out loose shakas, having her 14th birthday party at the infamous & now abandoned Waiwera hot pools and lastly, producing stomping house tracks!
‘Discotheque’ is singer/songwriter Jodie Champion’s debut single that is destined to be a house anthem of 2021, filled with funky synths and a euphoric hook that’s even sung by Jodie herself! ‘Discotheque’ is the party starter that’ll have everyone revved up and hissin’ at pre’s.
Jodie has been on a steady rise in the DJ scene over the last year, getting bookings all over Aotearoa, notably Rhythm & Vines 2020. Despite the pandemic holding back some of her 2020 gig plans, Jodie made the most of the time indoors and honed her focus in on recording her own music.

It was a case of turning things around to be positive and use the time to play guitar, create beats and write lyrics - channelling my energy into what I love to do. I’ve always wanted to mix my own tunes into my house sets and I’m grateful 2020 gave”
Safe to say, 2021 is looking like a dead set ripper of a year for the Hibiscus Coast House Hornet - Jodie Champion! Keep an eye out on line ups, gig posters and her instagram (Jodie Champion) to find out where to catch her playing live!
