The much talked about Channel O Lockdown House Party delivered the trendiest virtual groove experience during the initial levels of the countrywide lockdown, and peeps can't stop talking about it! Having premiered on DStv channel 103 during the last weekend of April, the 6-hour, bi-weekly show assembled some of the country's hottest DJ's to showcase their refined technique while helping the masses turn their living rooms into mini dancefloors during the order to stay home.

The show, which aired on Fridays and Saturday between 18:00 and midnight on yours truly, dominated social media trends every weekend as acts from our line-up took turns in turning tables and dishing out hot mixes of the biggest dancefloor bangers and timeless throwback classics! Between the street anthems and the abstract, expensive sounds that viewers enjoyed as gears switched between deep house, electro, amapiano, R&B and Hip Hop, the live interaction on social media was also off the charts. 

Granted, due to the show's popularity, not everyone got to see their tweet rocking the strap during the show's broadcast, but that didn't stop the experience from being a banging session that was all about the people. 

And while the Lockdown House Party wrapped up a killer season on Saturday, our viewers will be delighted to learn that there's more entertainment and music in the pipeline. Starting this Friday, June 5th at 17:00, we are bringing you stripped-down live performances with a twist. When Remix.Studio, a brand new show, premieres on Channel O, vieweres will experience their faves immersing themselves in the lyrics of their songs.
