DJ Hottpants
aka Daniel Blair
 
Born and bred in Miami, DJ Hottpants has brought guilty pleasure pop to his hometown since 2003. Spinning the best and worst of Indie Rock, R&B, Pop, Hip-Hop, Booty, Freestyle and Electro, DJ Hottpants does it all while dancing about in short shorts and legwarmers. DJ Hottpants has been a resident DJ at GET SOME!, ROLL OUT and The Standard, and has spun at various art openings, private parties and special events along the East Coast.

In July 2004, DJ Hottpants was named one of Miami's "30 Under 30" by Street Magazine (Tom Austin). DJ Hottpants was also profiled in the Bedroom Rockers: Where DJs Call Home softcover coffee-table book published in December 2004 by Adidas and XLR8R Magazine, and reprinted in hardcover in July 2005. Also in 2005, DJ Hottpants was photographed for the cover of Miami New Times and Miami SunPost, and was named one of BiZBashFla's "20 Under 40" (Vanessa Goyanes). In August 2006, he appeared as a featured dancer in a commercial for the MTV Latin America program: Flamantes. DJ Hottpants received a shout-out in People Magazine in April 2011 and in the June 2011 issue of 944 Magazine.
