Does your work from home soundtrack need a refresh? Patrixia, our latest Chicagoan of Note, is a DJ who dominates the digital club space. She’s so good at getting the digital party started that it’s how she makes a living. Part of that comes from hosting free DJ sets on Twitch three times a week, and today you can catch her spinning from noon-3 PM. If you like what you hear, tune in again Wednesday from 11 AM-2 PM or Friday from 8-11 PM. Maybe even . . . subscribe? (MC)
