Next Mechanical Breakdown Guest mix is from  L.A.-BASED DJ, STACY CHRISTINE!


Stacy Christine's foray into DJing took place under the wing of Joshua James of Music For Dancers (MFD) in 2012. Selecting records and cohosting several parties, it was at MFD that she made a fateful friendship with Chris Bowen of Bears in Space, LA. After the unfortunate closure of MFD, Chris Bowen took Stacy Christine on as a protégé, offering her her first DJ gig in 2015 at Bowen and Victor Rodriguez's monthly Friday night party, Cub Scout, a wilderness-themed party at Silver Lake's gay institution, Eagle LA.
From there, one could say her career jumpstarted to life. She garnered her first monthly residency at Pitch Black City in DTLA with Chris Bowen and Victor Rodriguez, becoming an official member of their DJ collective, Critter Control that same year. In 2016 she joined Bowen and Rodriguez as a resident of the beloved underground party, Shits and Giggles and began opening for their seasonal LA party, Bears in Space.
In the spring of 2018, she formed No Nonsense LA with DJ Sindri and Mike ETC. Miss Mgt., a techno-themed partnership with Bowen, that same summer.
You can catch Stacy Christine DJing anywhere from warehouse parties to Hollywood Forever Cemetery. She's opened for the likes of DJ Harvey, Heidi Lawden, Lovefingers, Discodromo, Jackmaster and Honey Soundsystem and Mark Farina. She's been billed at Sunset Campout, A Club Called Rhonda, Lights Down Low, Ostbahnhof, Summertramp, Tendencies, and Midnight Lovers.
Her style can be playful to deep and dark, depending on the crowd and her mood.
