First up is DJ Mahagony, an old-school dance party DJ that used to frequent the hallowed grounds of 283. You can still catch him all around town spinning “some of the fun booty jams from the past (Shake Your Booty by KC & The Sunshine Band) to the fun booty jams of today (The Wobble by V.I.C.).”
Next Event: DJ Mahogany’s Thirtysomething Birthday Bash @ Little Kings!
Find out more about him on Facebook, and keep an eye out for his name in your favorite events section.
DJRX does amazing things that blur the lines of VJ and DJ. If you have never been to one of his shows, you’ve definitely been missing out. My only possible complaint might be that the video mixing is so good, it’s sometimes hard to choose between watching that magic on the screen and making the magic on the dance floor.
Immuzikation is a mash-up artist extraordinaire. Though, don’t let that reputation fool you—he’s one of the most fun DJs in town and can play a full set that will keeps you going all night long.
Trogdor is not easily classified because his influences are all over the place—in a good way. From melt-your-face dubstep to momentous DnB, he has you covered. As one of the people working hard to keep New Earth the great space it is, keep an eye out for “Trogdor” to appear on one of their posters for an EDM event. If you see that, it’s a can’t miss show.
1. Feral Youth
Let’s take a moment to appreciate how Feral Youth manages to take the temp of a room and hit all the right notes with the perfect blend of genres that keeps the party going well into the night. I’ve heard him play at events ranging from a small farewell-Athens house party to his frequent gig commanding the dance parties at Manor, and he always seems to make the right choices for the right people. In fact, the only problem is that Manor is mostly terrible and convincing people to go there for Feral Youth is difficult.
Honorable Mention: Hyperion
While she’s technically Atlanta-based, Hyperion is amazing and semi-frequently makes it out to Athens and prove to all of the Athenians why she is Atlanta’s Queen of DnB.
