It has become generally acceptable to frequent a club or a bar for the chance to flirt with the hot bartender with the great smile, or the sexy server with the smoldering body. But what about the DJ’s? While normally relegated to an unseen elevated tier above the dance floor, here are some of the hotties who will be raising the roof–and the temperature, tomorrow night:
As one of the most interesting DJ’s to emerge in the scene in recent memory, this handsome sexpot orchestrates his Retromash symphony every Friday night at Wild Pug. Recently named one of the most eligible bachelors by Time Out, this Illinois native weaves his unique techno-robot-futuristic beat into some of everyone’s favorite tunes, from the 1960’s to present day.
If Dita von Teese had a younger, sassier sister, DJ Tevis Jory would be it. Tall, slender, and with the perfect mix of punk, spunk and style, this Wicker Park beauty takes command of the booth every Friday night at Northside. Spicing up the night with tunes that will have you dancing, singing and rocking it out, this girl is at least as entertaining as the music she so deftly mixes.
DJ Greg Haus
With his boyish good looks, a funky blond mop, and green eyes, this veteran DJ knows how to throw his crowd into ecstasy. Working his magic at Berlin every Friday night, Haus has been sending electric shockwaves through some of the most buzzed about parties in town, including the bluechip MCA’s debut for Wolfgang Tillmans. Don’t be surprised if you also happen to catch him at Neo, Hydrate, Smart Bar or the Funky Buddha Lounge–that’s what happens when you’re in demand.
DJ Shaka 23
The grand dame of electronic beats, this former New York City model has amassed one of the most impressive repertoires in town. Lavish New Year’s Eve parties at the Sofitel and W hotels? Been there. Collaborating with Boy George on Glamourama? Done that. This sought-after trendsetting femme fatale concocts what could only be described as musical cocktails: part disco, part electro, and a good squeeze of funk. Watch her serve it at the Victor Hotel.
DJ Ryan Paradise
Something about the combination of chiseled features, a smooth ‘tude and perfect mastery over just about any kind of music always gets us off our feet and up on the dance floor. Come watch this self-proclaimed “Graphic Mad Man” kick it off at the Wicker Park staple Debonaire tomorrow night.
One encounter with any of these sexy Chicagoans, and the conversation with the hot bartender and the smiley server will be limited to: “Hey, think you could introduce me to the DJ?”
