Kibbitz Cover Girl: DJ Stacy Stylez

This is part of our Sep/Oct 2007 issue.

Stacy Spierer, aka DJ Stacy Stylez, did not make it big by carefully poking her big toe in the water.

She dove straight into the deep end. The Long Island native taught herself the basics of spinning (she would later have big-time producers mentor her) and convinced a club owner to give her a shot at the turntables. It turned out she was in the right place at the right time.

"I was literally thrown into deejaying," Stylez tells AJL. "The first time I ever DJ'd in my whole life, I was booked for David Letterman."

Stylez used her spot on Letterman to launch a career as one of the hottest DJ's in New York City. She can be found making bodies bounce at a different club just about every night in the city that never sleeps. It has gotten to the point where it's hard to find a hot spot she hasn't rocked anywhere in the country. Styelz has spun at private parties for the likes of Paris Hilton. She worked the 2007 NBA All-Star game in Las Vegas. And she has been a regular DJ at Saturday Night Live after-parties.

And through it all, Stylez has held on tightly to her faith. "I think every moment in my life, everything that I do in my life, is rooted in my Judaism," she says. "And I really mean that."

And how does her Judaism affect her when she's on the job? "Well," she quips, "obviously I just play Hava Nagila over and over."
