DJ DZA


If DZA were spinning at the Super Bowl, it would quickly become the best and biggest arena-size house party ever to exist. His sets are just that fun. It’s tempting to label his style throwback—especially owing to the fact that he’ll pepper his mixes of hip-hop and house with ’80s R&B jams—but he’ll throw anything into the mix, regardless of when it was released.

“It’s what I like to do best,” says DZA, who was born in France but now calls Miami home. “I’m not scared to play Whitney Houston’s ‘I Wanna Dance with Somebody’ next to some hood record. It doesn’t bother me as long as it sounds right.”

His curatorial style is what has made Peachfuzz every Friday at The Garrett the most popular party in downtown Miami. He’s also behind DZA’s House, a monthly old-school house music party at Bardot. That said, the man is in demand, and can be caught spinning everywhere from South Beach to Hollywood.
