Best Club DJ Minneapolis 2014 - DJ Shannon Blowtorch
Shannon Blowtorch is a self-taught Minneapolis-based DJ who has risen through the ranks of the Twin Cities scene since her time dancing with All the Pretty Horses. Now she can control any room where she spins music to the point that it's downright impossible to hold the wall. Blowtorch is currently the DJ in the breakout hip-hop crew, GRRRL PRTY, pumping out the bangin' beats that make their modern sound so fresh and infectious. She regularly DJs for popular dance nights around the area like Bomp, Soul Friday, and Berlin, and is the co-creator of the progressive Grown & Sexy night that regularly fills First Avenue. She's also an accomplished sound engineer and a respected music promoter, and has toured internationally with high-profile acts including the Gossip, Peaches, and CSS. At this point, Blowtorch's high-energy mix is far bigger than just a Twin Cities treasure, but we're delighted to have her in our midst.
