DJ's can help make or break a club, and the Strip's top casinos scramble to sign up the most popular names.  Kaskade, who deejays at Marquee at the Cosmopolitan, earns a cool $200,000 per night.  But most of the DJs splashed across billboards are men.  So where are the ladies?  Who are the women who spin at night, and are creating their own beat in clubs both on and off the Strip?  What are their styles?  And what sort of challenges (or benefits) do they face as women looking to break into a male-dominated scene?
