HOT GALLERY: LMFAO: Looking at the Dance-Party Gurus’ Rise to Music Dominance!
Where do dance-party musicians come from? The tough streets of London, New York, or Los Angeles? Sometimes. In this case, they come from rock 'n' roll royalty: Berry Gordy. He’s the father of DJ Redfoo (Stefan Gordy) and grandfather of Sky Blu (Skyler Gordy). Both party boys grew up in Pacific Palisades, California.

Stefan Gordy, Junior Year, Palisades High School, Pacific Palisades, California, 1993
Back when Stefan Gordy didn’t look like a party rocker but a clean-cut Pali High student, he was friends with will.i.am, who would eventually join the Black Eyed Peas. Redfoo produced the Peas’ first demo in his home studio. It was only a matter of time before he would realize his true potential.
