The disco lyric totally holds true: If not last night, specifically, at some point, a DJ has saved our lives on the dance floor
. In a city known for its super-vibrant electro scene, plethora of clubs, and nightlife that can go on for days, the skilled MIA DJ almost fills a holy role.
And while our neck of the woods has a constant influx of the biggest names behind the 1s and 2s, it's the local mix masters that really get our groove. We've picked our five favorite DJs in the 305 who've not only got the chops (think international gigs to local residencies at our favorite venues)—but also, truly unique and incredible style
. These disc jockeys share insider tips, hotspots, dressing secrets…and, of course, where you can hear them play. If this isn't the ultimate guide to getting down in Miami, we'll retire our dance card.
Click through to meet the five oh-so-stylish music maestros who keep the Magic City dance scene jumping.
