PREVIEW || LONG WEEKEND LOVE FOR HONEY DIJON, JADE & SHEA MARIE
We are excited about this formidable trio coming to CODA for a long weekend special event Sunday, October 7th!
Born and raised in Chicago, the birthplace of house music, Honey Dijon was introduced to music through her parents, who would host basement parties where she would play records before she went to bed. The discovery of soul, R&B and playing records on the belt-driven decks felt organic, and over time she started collecting tracks, going to clubs and developing her own taste and style. Dijon met and formed an important friendship with revered house pioneer, Derrick Carter, who became a mentor and introduced her to Chicago’s underground where she found jackin house, Detroit techno and ultimately became immersed within the intersection of art, clubs, music and fashion. She’s since curated and compiled music for high-profile fashion shows, including Louis Vuitton, and has been featured in the New York Times style section.
After relocating to New York, she met Danny Tenaglia who influenced her sound and diverse, eclectic approach to programming. Her sets are true musical journeys with peaks and valleys that move seamlessly from swinging Chicago deep house to a darker New York sound, to minimal techno to disco and everything in between and beyond. Her sound is forward-thinking, bold, sexy, fun, and undoubtedly offers an element of surprise, combined with deft mixing and fluid transitions across genres. Honey’s passion, warmth and energy behind the decks is powerful and unforgettable, and creates a connection with the crowd that is touched by magic.
Jade created an incredible vibe earlier this year at the Moog Audio stage during Electric Island’s Canada Day event and we can’t wait to hear more of her organic, deep, groovy sounds. Shea Marie, one of Toronto’s exciting and rising house and techno DJs, makes this party perfect.
We can’t wait to see this trio light up our night this weekend at CODA! See you on the dancefloor!
