Michelle Q (MICHELLECUE) on Twitter
Michelle Q is my partner in crime, she spins for the same reason I do- for the love of it. She spins anything from old skool to underground hip-hop to soul to funk to freestyle to breaks. She always supports art and music in her community- throwing events that blend both with dance for a great day/night out. If she's not DJing, she's dancing or rapping- definitely a force to reckon with and I'm lucky to call her a good friend. For show schedule and fliers, check out: http://www.myspace.com/photorock

Denny Kim (Denkym)
Denny Kim (Denkym) on Twitter
Denkym rocks, what can I say? He can scratch like a madman and make it look almost too easy. He has such an amazing style and spins everything, whatever takes away the stress and then, as soon as you're relaxed, he gets you up and grooving. He DJs for the love of it and teaches at Scratch DJ Academy, LA. I'm lucky to call him a friend and to have rocked parties with him. For a sample and more info: http://www.myspace.com/denkym

kristine (djpuffs) on Twitter
Puffs, the only female I've seen quick mix so fast that if you're following her on the decks, she can run through your whole hour set in minutes. The girl is DOPE and she loves her R&B and not afraid of the jiggy if it'll get people dancing. If you see her spin, you WILL be dancing whether you like it or not! Her current residency is The Brig in Venice Beach on Thursdays. She's all about sharing the love and helping to inspire future DJs at Scratch Academy LA. For more info, follow her and check out: http://www.myspace.com/puffsblendz

DJ Lady Sha (djladysha)
DJ Lady Sha (djladysha) on Twitter
I had first heard of Sha through Puffs and I remember when I first saw her, she was spinning Reggae/Ragga/Dancehall with such pure joy and passion. She's the first woman to win WMC Mix Battle in 2008. She does what every good DJ does, reads the crowd and gives them what they need. You'll never know what you'll get at a Sha gig but, you'll know that you'll have the time of your life. For more info, follow her and check out: http://www.myspace.com/djladysha

J-Heart...I heart J-Heart. She has SO much soul and rocks lovers rock, boom bap, bootie bangers and classic cuts plus, so much more.

Seano keeps it so real you'll question if he's messing with you or if one person could be so dope. My favorite thing about Seano's shows are that he plays whatever he feels, I've never seen him spin the same set twice...EVER and I've had the pleasure to play a residency, Footwork, with him.For more info on some fresh events and music: http://www.facebook.com/djseano?ref=ts

KSLY is the only DJ on here I haven't met but, love her style. She's a radio DJ, hosting shows on The Beat as well as with co-host Ludacris on Atlanta's Hot 107.9FM that spins some of the illest music I've heard. Her current residencies are: every Thursday night themed "SophistiFunk," at Gyenari Restaurant & Lounge where she plays Bossa, Funk, Vintage & Future Soul. Currently, she's heard live on Sprint Mobile Radio's "The Ten Spot." Check out her podcast at: http://djksly.podomatic.com/

Quickie Mart (djquickiemart)
Quickie Mart (djquickiemart) on Twitter
I have only met Quickie Mart randomly once through his gig at Air Conditioned in Venice a WHILE ago when I first noticed that he wasn't like every other club DJ in LA. From his opening set to his last song, I was grooving the entire time. My fiance who is shy about dancing but, shouldn't be, couldn't keep himself off the dancefloor. His residencies are Saturday nights at Air Conditioned and Mondays at The Mint but, for a complete show schedule and more, check out: http://www.myspace.com/quickiemart

DJ Shortee (DJShortee)
DJ Shortee (DJShortee) on Twitter
Shortee is the Queen of Scratch, when I was lucky enough to learn from her at Scratch LA, I'd get to REHAB early to spin and she'd be in a scratch sess with Denkym. Man, I LOVED watching those sessions. Whenever you see her spin, your body can't stop moving but, your eyes can't move away from her. She's just so incredible. Not only is she incredibly talented but, she's one of the nicest people you'll ever meet. Check out her site for more info: http://www.myspace.com/djshortee

Z-TRIP (ztrip)
Z-TRIP (ztrip) on Twitter
What can I say about the inventor of the Mash-Up? I first heard Z-Trip when I was living in Reno from a bgirl friend of mine who had gotten his War Mix, recorded live at the Little Temple, from an LA bboy she knew. She said, Evoke, you HAVE to hear this- it has our name written all over it. She was right- I'd never heard anyone spin ALL the genres I loved in such a creative way before and it had an anti-war message to boot. If you've never seen him live or heard a mix, you are missing out- trust me. Here's his site for shows and free downloads, follow him now and you'll thank me forever: www.djztrip.com
