DJ, Music Selector, and Cultural Curator
DJ CHAVA is a Chicago raised and Los Angeles based DJ, music selector and cultural curator. Known for her high energy sets, vivacious personality and packed parties, an event headlined by Chava is sure to never have a dull moment. Chava — always proud to represent her Mexican-American heritage — is sought out for her global influenced, vibe enhancing sets where her carefully selected rotation of reggaeton, R&B, house and hip-hop radiate across the dance floor. Alongside her signature selection of high energy Latin tracks, Chava always aims to put her audiences onto newer, under the radar talent as well, and is constantly on the hunt for fresh artists to incorporate into her sets to keep dance floor attendees on their toes and dancing.
Chava’s Chicago roots combined with her Latinx upbringing have irrevocably shaped her musical influence and sound. Her musical taste is down to earth but always danceable with an overall global aesthetic — factors clearly evident in her rapid rise to notoriety as a sound selector. Within only a year, she went from purchasing her first controller to deejaying local house parties to becoming a top tier, notable act within the nightlife scene. Chava’s passion for spinning has granted her residencies in both Chicago and Los Angeles at nightlife mainstay spots such as the Mine Music Hall, Soho House, Avalon Hollywood and The Reserve. She’s also previously provided opening support for the likes of the legendary DJ Jazzy Jeff and Latin popstar Ozuna.
Alongside soundtracking the hottest parties all year round, Chava strives to continue to be an influential cultural force pushing forward the narrative for women and Latinx deejays worldwide that their potential as individuals is infinite.
