I want to show some appreciation for my favorite DJs who live and play in Broward and West Palm Beach as one of the first installments of this new column. These are the people I go out of my way to hear live, trade music with, and listen to their mixes because I like being surprised by each of them (in a good way), and I respect all of their tastes.
One of the best things about being a DJ is hearing someone play a new track that you love, then doing some research and finding more gems from that artist or producer. Since there's so much great music being released all the time, listening to other DJs is the best way to stay on top of what's coming out. We are all pretty much stealing from one another all the time -- it's like an ongoing conversation.
The ten DJs who made this list each have a distinct style and have found their sonic niches. They are listed in no particular order, so read on and find out what makes each of them special.
