From the dance pads to the stage comes DJ EMCAT! Emily A., also known as Emcat, is a cosplayer, gamer, and cat-lover who is passionate about bringing danceable, nerdy, and high-energy music to the dance floor.


Inspired by con raves and rhythm gaming, she wants everyone to have fun, enjoy the music, and be themselves! Emcat’s favorite genres to spin are house, video game/anime remixes, hardcore, j-core, Eurodance, and dance music. She also has made her own video-game-inspired remixes and edits from her favorite series.

Emcat has played at both Michigan and out-of-state events including RaveStation, Beast in The East, Combocon, and VGM Con.


She looks forward to cosplaying during her set and choosing a variety of hype tracks for you!
