Best Club DJ - 2012
18andCounting hasn't stopped for so much as a breath for several years now. Better known to some as Stan Chisholm, he has added an Akai MPD and a MacBook to his live arsenal. Holding down a constant schedule around town, Chisholm faces the world head on. His collaborations with DJ Needles, Black Spade and numerous others solidify one truth: He is down for the beat. Not just because he wants to be but because he needs to be — because he breathes music and sweats art. He is a man whose zeal so effortlessly transcends his body and emanates through one of the various sound systems across the city. His sets are united by bass and baptized by searing synths — whether it's Azealia Banks, Lorn, SBTRKT or Ludacris, Chisholm's seamless mix is welcomed by both the heads and the mainstream. Requests aren't his bag, so sit back, relax and put on your seatbelt.
