Charissa Saverio, known globally as DJ Rap, has proven quite adept at developing outlets for her talent. Comfortable behind any lens, she used her stunning looks to become a successful model and actress. As a producer, she has released several dance and jungle hits, not to mention a healthy remix portfolio. She owns a seasoned drum ‘n’ bass label and recently created another to focus on her growing interest in house music. Rap’s latest drum ‘n’ bass album, “Bulletproof,” was released last year to wide acclaim. This multitasking deck diva returns to Chicago with her signature dark melodies and synth-fueled breakbeats, these days blended with elements of house and trance. After a decade in the business, DJ Rap’s bottom line has remained constant: “get the crowd moving.” (John Alex Colón)
