Bottles and cans, just clap your hands! DJ Starfish and Little Beat were at it again with another dope episode of Starfish and Coffee​ on October 1, 2017!

Little Beat brought a crazy hard “What’s That Sound?” sound challenge, with two lollipops that were only different in colour. Spoiler alert – somehow DJ Starfish knows what purple sounds like. As for the music, well by now you know that you can’t go wrong when listening to Starfish and Coffee.

Oh, this week’s episode features a special treat for fans of The Simpsons. We played the song from the ‘Land of Chocolate’ scene.
