BestDJs_3 Rob Vaughan. photography by Billy Surface


FROM: This Army brat has lived in Georgia, Korea, Alabama, and Kansas. He graduated from TCU with a degree in journalism.

VITAL STATS: As a college freshman, Vaughan was exposed to the DJ scene in Fort Worth. He had a couple of regular gigs, one of which eventually led to a job at late-night hangout Aqualounge in Dallas, just as the rave scene was getting started. From there, he began DJing raves and playing at different clubs. His music is a “pretty accessible mix,” combined with underground stuff from Europe, mash-ups, and some hip-hop. By day he works at D.R. Horton Homebuilder’s title company.

WHERE TO HEAR HIM: Candleroom on the weekends.
