Best DJ's DJ - 2004
Besides the fact that he runs the nyhappenings music list, which makes him the most clued-in guy in town, DAN SELZER is the DJ music nerds who like early electronic, experimental, and post-punk want to hear when they leave the house. That's 'cause his record collection makes everyone green with envy, and also 'cause he knows how to string the music together just so. His label, Acute, is dedicated to putting out obscure no-wave artists like Theoretical Girls. And when he DJs, it's part entertainment, part educationjust as it should be.
