NYC’s Top DJs

By Jimmy Newsum

Euro DJs reign supreme but when clubsters want to get down to some American beats, its NYC spinners they turn to. We have long known the power New York City DJs yield in breaking and making a record.  From the days when Madonna stepped to the DJ booth at Danceteria to hand Jellybean Benitez her “Holiday” track to the nights Junior Vasquez spun Whitney’s “Step By Step” into an internationally beloved club anthem, NYC’s DJs have long shaped what the rest of the world grooves to.

A new pack of spinners have emerged as today’s leaders in NYC and like their predecessors, these DJs are tearing up floors and redefining the meaning of club music.
