Originating from Chicago, the home of house music, DJ and producer Honey Dijon is well known for her energetic and hypnotic blend of house and techno. Mizz Dijon released the superb The Best Of Both Worlds LP in 2017.
“The inspiration for this mix was an opportunity for me to present a deeper, more introspective side of myself. I often play peak time sets that require lots of energetic soundscapes and I wanted to share some music that I love but don’t necessarily often get to present. Set times are so short and lineups so stacked that it’s often challenging to spread your wings artistically. Some of the tracks will be familiar such as Hammer’s At Once and Portable’s I Open My Eyes, but overall I feel it reflects my Chicago and New York roots. I ended the mix with a quote from Paris Is Burning in light of the current political attack that Trump has waged against transfolk in the US. It’s important for me that the music takes the listener not only a sonic journey but an emotional one as well.”~ Honey Dijon.
