Honey Dijon

About Artist

Honey Dijon, a renowned American DJ, producer, and electronic musician, hails from Chicago and is based in New York City and Berlin. Her impressive performance credits include clubs, festivals, art fairs, galleries and fashion events around the world.

Honey Dijon spent her childhood in 1970s-era South Side Chicago, raised in a supportive and musically inclined African-American middle-class family. With her parent’s permission, she was admitted to clubs at a young age, provided her studies did not suffer as a result.

She began her career as a DJ in the 1990s and was subsequently active as a producer in the early 2000s. During her time in Chicago, she was fortunate to be mentored by renowned DJs and producers such as Derrick Carter, Mark Farina and Greenskeepers.

In the late 1990s, Honey Dijon relocated to New York, where she was introduced to Maxi Records and Danny Tenaglia. Having had her first exposure to techno in Chicago’s house scene, she soon began performing on the city’s underground club circuit and at various fashion shows.

In 2017, Dijon dropped her first album called ‘The Best of Both Worlds’. She’s been linking up with big names like Louis Vuitton and Dior for a while now, crafting soundtracks for their fashion shows.

In 2018, Resident Advisor noted that Dijon had popularized a DJ style full of golden-era disco, techno, and house vibes. Dijon herself admitted that people still associate her with swinging Chicago and classic house and disco – but she can take this sound and make it her own with her unique approach to techno.

Redmond is a transgender person who has been a strong supporter of trans rights and spreading awareness all while being a black trans woman DJ in the dance music scene. Back in 2016, she sat down with Channel 4 to talk about the importance of trans visibility. She recently hosted a fun event at the MoMA PS1 museum in NYC and led a roundtable discussion about people who, just like her, feel at home and express themselves in the NYC club scene.
