A house DJ with a techno producer's ear for eclectic and enthralling sounds, charisma for miles and mixing skills to match, Honey Dijon crafts irresistible sets that have crowds eating out of her grooves.

Growing up in the '70s and '80s in Chicago, Honey Dijon took up dropping the needle on her parents' soul and R&B records during house parties and, enamoured by newer music of the era, started sneaking into clubs by age 12. As a Black trans artist, her first access to LGBTQ+ identity codes came through music and fashion that upended mainstream tropes in inclusive club spaces. Among her long-time friends and mentors from her Chicago days, she counts Derrick Carter and Danny Tenaglia, who inspired her to delve deeper into Chicago house and Detroit techno and push the boundaries of DJing once she hit New York. A long-time crate digger with a penchant for androgynous high fashion looks, she's since become a club fixture as a DJ and has created soundtracks for Louis Vuitton catwalks (one with disco producer Giorgio Moroder), DJed Hermès and Givenchy parties, talked ready-to-wear on Style.com, appeared in Antony Hegarty's documentary Turning, and been profiled in the New York Times. In the studio, she's collaborated with house producer Luke Solomon, musician and composer Tim K, Cakes da Killa and Seven Davis Jr., and even upped the euphoria levels of Sylvester’s disco classic Stars with the soaring vocals of Australian singer Sam Sparro.

Honey Dijon's DJ sets at Panorama Bar skyrocketed her not only into Berghain, Ibiza's Space and Chicago's Smart Bar but into the music media and the festival circuit. This summer she plays Primavera Sound, Parklife and Melt along with too many clubs to count. She joins MUTEK's packed Saturday night roster with a signature cross-genre DJ set of back-to-back joyous house gems that run straight into sunrise.
