“DJ Dakota” (Stephany Dakota Lobban)
was born and raised in Coral Gables, Florida
to a long line of family musicians. She began
DJ-ing as a radio DJ for Florida International
University’s “WUFI Radio” and continued to dj
the university radio station circuit in Florida on Florida State
University’s “WVFS, The Voice of FSU” and Rollins College, “WPRK”.
After backpacking throughout Europe and the UK, this sealed Dakota's passion for the Electronic Dance Music scene and Dakota began her 12” vinyl collection with her Technic 1200’s. Her club appearances and weekly sets began in her hometown of Miami. She has also supported the Winter Music Conference and has DJed several years at the renown Ultra Music Festival, both held annually in downtown Miami.
Dakota has also been involved in the television industry, DJ-ing live on Telemundo’s “The Roof’s, ‘No Cover’”, with the likes of Paul Van Dyk and Tiesto. She was also in the hit TV series, “Single in The City-South Beach” on the WE network.
Her residencies have included “Satine Lounge” in The Westin Diplomat Resort in Hollywood, FL; before spinning in Las Vegas for “Nirvana”, at Green Valley Ranch; “Acid Jazz Night” at The Artisan Hotel, and other appearances at Club Ice for Godskitchen, “Late-Night” at Empire Ballroom for Vegas Alliance; “House of Style” at Tabu for Angel Management Group; “Risque” at Paris for Nightlife Guru, Foundation Room in Mandalay Bay, and various national and international appearances in San Diego, LA; San Francisco, CA; Atlantic City, NJ; San Luis Potosi, Mexico; Maui, Hawaii; and Ibiza, Spain! When she isn’t spinning at clubs and private parties throughout the United States and beyond, she’s in the recording studio producing and mixing music. Although she prefers to spin vinyl, today she uses her MacBook Pro with Traktor and the Pioneer DDJ-T1.
