Best Club DJ

Rob Black

From Nirvana spiked with progressive trance to his dalliances with the theme from Knight Rider, Rob Black has made a name for himself among those who actually pay attention to what the DJ is playing. A resident at Wish and Metropolis (where he hosts the Church), Black also scores regular gigs for the city's best dance events. His uniqueness lies in his ability to appease both the regular clubgoers and the occasional drop-ins; he throws down recognizable tracks -- maybe the latest alternative or hip-hop -- and makes them excellent bedfellows with tribal, trance, or house sounds. For those just seeking a sweaty night out, he'll get your booty shaking. For those who want sets full of surprises, Black is where it's at.
