DJ L spins at Studio 8 on Saturday, Feb. 4.

By day, he’s Lohrasp Kansara, model and actor on TV series like Law & Order, Damages and Blue Bloods. By night, he’s DJ L, who spent last year spinning on MTV and BET, along with live gigs in New York, St. Martin, Dubai, London, Paris, Mumbai and Kingston.

This guy has taken celebrity DJing to the next level—like the rest of them, he’s all about getting a pic with Jamie Foxx, Denzel Washington or Lil Wayne that he can throw up on the website for cred. But thanks to his career in front of the camera and as the poster boy for Most Official Seven denim and T.I.’s Akoo clothing line, he’s also the celebrity that other DJs want in their pictures.

Perhaps it’s no surprise that he should come to embody the international-DJ craze—born of Indian descent in Geneva, he moved to this country in his teens to pursue an NBA career. Instead he ended up preparing for his budding career as a media mogul, graduating in three years from SUNY Purchase with a 4.0 in Economics. When he started getting high-profile clients as a DJ—Madonna, Leonardo DiCaprio and even the NBA he once dreamed of playing for—he turned it into a full-time career, banking on his versatility behind the turntable rather than technical tricks.

DJ L spins at Studio 8 on Saturday (Feb. 4), 9pm; cover is $20 after 11pm.
