Party starter Chippy Nonstop was lost amongst a throng of dancers. They surrounded her in her DJ booth, which was decked out in TV screens tilted like diamonds. In the middle of it stood a diminutive Indian woman, dancing, lip syncing, and rapping, as she lit up the club.
 
Nonstop blended her own beats with thudding synthesizers and keyboards, with Future and Juicy J's voices among those she summoned to hype her set. Nonstop read the room like a cold-blooded killer, stringing sexed-up couples along for sustained musical pulses before blowing them all up at once with an onslaught of beats that led to a collective release.
