What do you do when you want to start making a playlist for your workouts? You consult someone who knows a thing or two about working out. Jeremy Casebeer, aka The Lorax, a young gun on the AVP Pro Beach Volleyball Tour, definitely works out. He has 36 abs and jumps out of the gymer, sand. Hed be the first to tell you that it’s not all about hitting the gymyouve got to eat right toobut no one makes a playlist for their eating routine.
We all have different musical motivations at the gym; some people like rap, some prefer hard rock, and others get down to classical music. In Jeremy’s case, he can be seen with his white ear buds, focusing before a match or at the gym, listening to Kendrick Lamar, Flume, Dada Life, and Disclosure, among others. Jeremy discovers new music by going to the popular page on Hype Machine (hypem.com) and browsing until he finds a song that moves him.

Here are some tracks and artists that you can find on Jeremy’s iPod.

Jeremy Roueche DJed his first eventan eighth grade danceshortly after graduating from high school. Years later, after deciding to become a DJ full time in 2002, he ran into a former coworker who mentioned that a friend needed a DJ for some volleyball thing. That volleyball thing turned out to be the AVP tour, for which Roueche has now been the official DJ for 11 years. He also DJs UCLA men’s basketball games, appears on the weekly volleyball podcast The Net Live, serves as musical director for the Los Angeles Clippers, and, most significantly, has been writing this music column for VBM for five years.

When not jetting around the country (and the world: Roueche has also DJed a few Volleyball Vacations trips in Turks and Caicos and the Arab Games in Qatar) entertaining volleyball players and fans, Roueche creates his own music with collaborator DaCapo as the DJ/producer duo known as The Suicide Doors.
