Louie DeVito[1] is an Italian American dance DJ and producer based in New York City. He is best known for his mix series, NYC Underground Party (Volumes 1-8).[2] He is "America's #1 Top Selling Dance DJ." DeVito can be heard "In the Mix" weekly on Sirius XM Satellite Radio Channel 38, "Adrenaline", every Saturday at 9PM EST.

DeVito first gained popularity DJing in New York City, Long Island and Jersey Shore area clubs, where he is a favorite of many young Italian-Americans. DeVito is known for bringing commercial house and dance hits to the masses, including those who do not generally follow this type of music, with his compilations.
