Step aside, amateurs. A queen fox has claimed her throne. Unfailingly stunning and stylish, DJ88 (a.k.a. Bree Cohen) could easily be mistaken for a trend-setting patron at the club and not its DJ, but believe us when we say she has chops. The list of dance floors that 88 has conducted includes events for Alexander McQueen, The New Yorker and Miami Fashion Week. The Los Angeles native is praised for her eclectic custom playlists (check them out on IAmDJ88.com) and has curated soundtracks for restaurants such as La Cave at the Wynn, N9NE Steakhouse and Nove Italiano in the Palms. The current resident at Hyde Bellagio (beginning New year’s Eve), Marquee, Insert Coin(s) and L.A.’s Bar Marmont has a heart as powerful as her soulful music collection. Over the years the petite pitbull enthusiast (she has three rescue pitbulls) has raised more than $40,000 for various animal-rescue groups. Style, innovation and lots of tender, lovin’ care—what more could we ask from Vegas’ best female DJ?
