Connie Yin - NYC (featured 2-3pm Est)
Born and raised in Queens, New York City, Connie appeared in the electronic music scene six years ago and has become a familiar face in the NYC underground house/techno scenes. Connie has spun her eclectic mix of funky house, tech house, electro, acid, minimal and techno all over the world and alongside the most talented DJs/producers, like Magda, Trentemoller, James Holden, Italoboyz, Vincenzo, Michal Ho, Nico Purman, Guy Gerber, Davide Squillace, Alka_rex, Mark Henning, Sweet & Candy, Jeff Bennett, Konrad Black, Terry Mullan, Jesse Rose, Adultnapper, Nick Warren, Misstress Barbara, Patrick Chardronnet, Jay Tripwire, Jason Jinx, Chris Duckenfield (SWAG), Ladytron, Jimmy van M, Camea, and the Hacker. Connie spins regularly at NYC's top venues like Crobar, Pacha, Sullivan Room, Love & Cielo, but also DJs at more underground but high-profiled events and parties, eg. Minimoo, LESS @ Annex, and Resolute, for which she is a resident of.
Connie has also spun outside of NYC, in San Francisco, Miami, Puerto Rico, Costa Rica, Vancouver, Ibiza, Buenos Aires, Barcelona, Prague, Mexico, Rio de Janeiro, Athens, and most recently, BERLIN!!! In March 2006, Connie won the Village Voice DJ Spinoff Contest and spun at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami. In March 2007, Connie spun at the infamous Sunday School for Degenerates party at the Pawnshop in Miami, opening the terrace for an all-star line-up! In June 2008, Connie spun at Canada's top electronic dance party - Piknic Electronik, in Montreal! For all US bookings, except New York, please contact her booking agency, Volatl.
When she first became a part of New York's dance scene, Connie was shocked to see how few women were DJ-ing the many parties around town. Never one to settle, she has been teaching women to spin for over two years. To date, Connie has had 15 students. In addition, Connie is teaming up with Halcyon Record Store to foster and promote local female DJs via an event called "Ladies’ Night," which features a new female DJ spinning on-site every Thursday.
Connie is producing under the name "conSTAR" and her first release is out now on Airdrop Records!" (Love those guys!)
Audrey Napoleon - LA (featured 3-4pm Est)
Audrey Napoleon is a dynamic international DJ known for her passion, energy and style behind the decks. Spinning Minimal, Techno, House and Electro, Audrey captivates the heart of her crowd on a nightly basis.
Performing since age 6, to sing-alongs and putting on performances at local theaters and schools, her initial spark was evident. Late nights, sitting by the radio, anxiously awaiting to record the perfect songs to make mixes for her friends, it’s no wonder that this little girl developed into the multi-talented force she’s become today.
“I expect tremendous things from this lady!
No question… Audrey is a divergent performer and true artist.”
By 2005, Napoleon had relocated to Los Angeles; working closely with her mentor, she began her dj residency at Ashton Kutcher’s Hollywood hot spot, Geisha House. Audrey now holds a dj residency at the iconic club, Avalon Hollywood, and she continues to perform in countries around the world such as Italy, United Kingdom, France and the United States. Audrey has graced the stage with industry giants such as James Zabiela, Chris Liebing, Tiefschwarz, Tommie Sunshine and John Dahlback just to name a few. She has played the best clubs around the USA and internationally including Avalon, San Francisco’s Ruby Skye, Bolgia in Milan and Area51 in Manchester. In February, Audrey Napoleon performed at the opening gala for two of the 2010 Winter Olympics official parties at Circa and Richard Joseph in Vancouver.
In between producing her own tracks and remixing popular acts she such as Home Video’s single “Gas Tank”, which opened for justice on nye 2010 in New York City, she also lends her seductive vocals to the tracks of various New York and LA based producers.
Audrey is one of Shejay’s Top 100 Female DJs and has appeared in publications such as Remix Magazine, Los Angeles Times, Bust Magazine New York, Trigger Happy Magazine, and LA Weekly, along with numerous music blogs and online magazines.

“Who says one has to divide to conquer? The excitement and unity of the crowds are what allow me to do what I do”, says Audrey Napoleon for la weekly. “What I can give them is all the inspiration I need.”
