Hailing from Chicago. Influenced by New York, Honey Dijon has been representing US house on an international level for the best part of 2 decades. With Derrick Carter as a mentor there is no surprise Honey is a force to be reckoned with. The legendary DJ, long standing friend and inspiration for Honey Dijon, introduced her to the sounds of Jackin House and Detroit techno which she went on to make her own. Her now signature sound, flawless mixing, passion and integrity are just a few reasons we love her music.
Honey Dijon isn’t only a music aficionado but has forayed successfully into modern Art and high end Fashion brands. She launched her own label in collaboration with Comme Des Garcons and mixed the Louis Vuitton Autumn Winter 2017 Men’s soundtrack (listen here). Her art installation ‘Black Girl Magic’,( a collaborative exhibition with artist Marina Esmeraldo) celebrating goddesses, warriors and icons of music can be seen below.
