DJ Irie was named South Florida's #1 DJ by On the List's Micaela Hood, who chatted with the official Miami Heat DJ about nightlife and spinning.
Q: What are your favorite clubs?
A: There are so many great clubs to perform in Miami to just single out one.. just impossible. A few of my favorite are LIV, Mansion 360, Mynt Ultralounge, Space, Mokai, Wall, SET and Arkadia.
Q: What's the craziest thing that ever happen to you in a club?
A: A few years back.. at the height of Justin Timberlake’s “My Love” song popularity, I played it at Mansion nightclub on South Beach then ran to the middle of the stage to my awesome dance to it and whoops my pants slide right off my waist down to my ankles.. That was the last time I ever wear tighty whities again!
Q: Who is your celebrity crush? Did you ever meet her?
A: I have a few! Amber Heard, Stacey Dash, Charlize Theron and I had the biggest crush on Lark Vorhees & Tatiana Ali back in the day. Out of all of them, I’ve met Theron and Ali.
Q: Tell us something most people don't know about you.
A: I can't swim.
Q: What are the top three songs you're spinning right now?
A: In no particular order “Bands a Maker Her Dance Remix” by Juicy J feat. Lil’ Wayne & 2 Chainz, “Good Time” by Owl City feat. Carly Rae Jepsen, “Whistle” by Flo-Rida.
Q: Are you single now?
A: Yes! Single and ready to mingle.
Q: What's your fashion advice for people heading to the clubs?
A: Simple, wear comfortable shoes. Ladies: I know how important it is for you to go out making your fashion statement with your bazillion dollar shoes on but it totally defeats the purpose when you’re leaving the club at the end of the night barefoot and can barely walk.. That’s not sexy! There are shoes that look nice but are still comfy. Wear them.
