I really like to hit ‘em hard,” says DJ Brett Bodley. “When I hit an exercise or boxing session, I go hard until it’s done. I do the same with DJing.”

A native of Boulder, Colorado, Bodley, 26, began spinning high-energy house beats four years ago at Stingaree, where he first paid his dues as a lighting and sound technician. These days, he spins at Fluxx, Sidebar, Andaz and 207 at Hard Rock Hotel San Diego, downtown; plus Thrusters Lounge in Pacific Beach.

“My whole sound is very up-tempo, high energy, in-your-face,” he says. “I feel that you always have to bring that energy, no matter what kind of mood you’re in. You always have to take the party to the next level.”
