There are many perks involved with being a DJ: Complimentary booze, free schwag, the adoration of hundreds at gigs, and (depending on the particular selector or promoter) possibly a nice payday.
Then there are the more unusual bonuses, like the one that DJ Intel got the other night at The Monarch Theatre. The Chicago-based selector, who travels to Phoenix annually for the anniversary celebrations put on by the Valley's renowned hip-hop/b-boy collective Furious Styles Crew, was chillaxing backstage at the club with five ladies sporting bikinis.

He'd performed earlier for the kickoff night the FSC's six-day party and got to decorate each of the half-naked beauties with body paint along with Edson "House" Magana and other members of the crew.
Nice work if you can get it.
Intel, who's been coming to the Furious Styles shindigs for years, told us about how bikini babes aren't the only benefit of visiting Phoenix each year to help drive the FSC b-boys on the dance floor with hip-hop and house tracks. The 34-year-old also shared the experience of being one of the millions in Chicago who celebrated the re-election of the city's favorite son Barack Obama on Tuesday night and how he wished he could've been the official DJ for the POTUS.
