The Plush One (Los Angeles)
In high school 95-99 I thought I was Radio Raheem. We didn't have a radio station or regular DJ at my school, so I walked around campus with my portable Aiwa cd/cassette player. I would ask my friends to bring their music and I would put them on to new jams. Some teachers hated me, some loved it, but all my peers really appreciated it. Also, my sophomore year I started digging for records and THAT'S WHEN I KNEW I WAS A DJ!!
THE PLUSH ONE is an open format strictly vinyl DJ for almost 20 years. She's known for her sexy smooth blends & telling love stories by structuring each mix as one song: with a verse, bridge, & chorus.
PLUSH has past residencies in Los Angeles at the Virgil, Crane's Hollywood Tavern, Karma Lounge, and the Grand Star Jazz Club. She's also rocked the decks at many L.A. events such as: 90.7 FM KPFK, Truthseeker's Radio, Escala Beats and Eats, Bodega, Standard Hollywood, Beat Swap Meet, Accelerated Radio L.A., Cuffin L.A., Wax Works, and Do-Over L.A. The last 5 years, Plush has been residing in Oakland, rockin spots such as SomarBar, The New Parish, AU Lounge, Pops Bar SF, and Lake Merritt. Her specialty is Mixing timeless classics + new gems. Plush has recently moved back to LOS ANGELES and she's ready to rock!!

DJ Michelle Q (Brooklyn)

I'm a dancer 1st, DJ 2nd, and lyricist 3rd. As a kid I grew up watching Solid Gold, and dreamed of dancing on Soul Train or In Living Color. I wanted to be a Fly-girl or Laker-girl, but instead was lucky to learn what it meant to become a B-girl. I made my first dance mixes on 2 tape-decks and started DJ'ing before Serato and MP3's. They were days of collecting records, carrying crates and turntables, asking friends where they got that remix, and playing what we found on a white label record. I search for music that’s soulful, funky, hype, hard-hitting, bass-driven, thought-provoking or melodic. The goal is to bridge people together, unite them thru music and words, and most of all inspire them to dance.
