Ontario-born Nelleke McCowan’s all-vinyl DJ sets have become legend around the city. She spins everywhere from Le Bain’s Club Yes to Union Pool’s back-room “World Famous” parties, and hosts a radio show on OHWOW gallery’s Know-Wave “pirate” radio station.  “I started off as a rock-n-roll DJ,” says Nelleke, “but people would always come up to me and ask if I threw dance parties too.” Sensing there was a demand for better dance parties around town, McCowan gave herself a refresher course in all things body-moving. McCownan says. She’s been keeping the party going ever since.
