Honey Soundsystem (SF)
Honey Soundsystem, a DJ group created in the spirit of the legendary bay area crews, have been making their own scuff marks on today’s dancefloors while spreading the gospel of SF’s rich dance music history. Discaires, P-Play, Robot Hustle, Jason Kendig and Josh Cheon have come together to fill a void they saw in current gay nightlife. You can find Honey Soundsystem online, in the records stores, on stages at venues/festivals around the world, and EVERY SUNDAY NIGHT at the Holy Cow in the heart of SF’s SOMA district.
Honey Dijon (Classic, NYC)
What more can be said about the fabulous Honey Dijon. She has rightly taken her place in the music world and one of the most exciting and unique talents today with her innovative and unique sound. She also boasts some impressive accolades from some of the biggest names in dance music from Danny Tenaglia to Derrick Carter.
Based in NYC, born and bred in the Windy City, Honey is known for her unique take on the Chicago sound with inflections of the deep New York underground. In fact, Honey is one of the few dj’s in recent years to defy pigeon-holing. She draws from a wide repertoire of musical styles from old school Chicago House, disco, tech house, tribal, funk, soul, and R& B. She has graced the tables from Ministry of Sound London to Ushuaia Ibiza, Panorama Bar Berlin, Stereo Montreal and everywhere in between. She has also shared the decks with none other Danny Tenaglia, Derrick Carter, Green Velvet, The Martinez Brothers, Satoshi Tomiie, and Quentin Harris.
Nancy Whang (DFA, LCD Soundsystem, The Juan Maclean)
Nancy Whang is among the few who can lay claim to being a key figure in the heady early days of the rise of DFA Records, and her DJ sets remain faithful to the post-punk party aesthetic upon which DFA was founded. Nancy’s contributions on early 12″‘s by LCD Soundsystem and The Juan MacLean quickly lead to her full-time involvement as a permanent member in each of those bands. Shortly after, guest appearances on Soulwax’s seminal track ‘E Talking’ and Munk’s ‘Kick Out The Chairs’ solidified her place as a highly sought after vocalist in the burgeoning alternative dance music scene.
DJ Lisa Frank (U Hall, ROAM, Your Mind)
The NeedlExchange (TNX) is a DC based artists & DJ collective with strong roots in queer dance floor culture. They curate modern events for the future human.
TNX is comprised of Bil Todd, Baronhawk and Tommy Cornelis.
