Attik staffer named S.F.’s best DJ

TurntableIn staff member Amy Yvonne Yu, San Francisco ad agency Attik has more than just an art buyer and traffic coordinator: It also has the best DJ in San Francisco, so named by SF Weekly and East Bay Express, two alternative newsweeklies. After clarifying the efforts she makes to keep her musical pursuits from affecting her job—for example, not booking gigs on weekdays—Yu details some of the perks her side-interest brings to her day job at Attik. “Since I do get all the promos from all the independent electronica labels, I generally have unreleased tracks six months in advance, so I can share them with [group cd] Simon [Needham] and say, ‘Wouldn’t this be hot for [insert client here]?’” Yu will compete for a national title in the Ultra Music Festival in Miami on March 25.
