Chicago raised and New York infused, HONEY DIJON has a folio reaching beyond her extensive global nightclub bookings. She’s gate-crashed into artistry, sociology, fashion, and the rights of the individual. She recalls a childhood being bullied for being gender non-conforming and how art and fashion provided safe spaces. Honey Dijon came of age in the mid-80's, when house music burst out of her city. Launching her character and unleashing her unstoppable spirit, Honey Dijon - powered by a borderless intuition - became a mainstay of the city’s underground club scene as well as the city’s fashion industry.
Honey Dijon’s encyclopedic knowledge of all things fashion-related - from her impressive magazine collection (she has every issue of i-D, W, and Vogue Italia from the moment that Steven Meisel’s photographs first graced its pages) to her ability to name-drop niche designers - would be intimidating if not for her affable demeanor.
If you’ve ever witnessed one of Honey Dijon’s sets, you’ll know that she adopts a borderless approach to DJing. Her emotionally earnest mixing has earned her fans from Berghain to Burberry, the latter being a testament to her reputation as one of fashion’s favorite DJs. But that genre-blurring ethos extends beyond her musical career: in 2019, it was announced that Dijon would be collaborating with Comme des Garçons on a new brand, "Honey Fucking Dijon".
As a recording artist, she helmed an audacious debut record, 2017’s The Best of Both Worlds.
In 2022, Honey released Black Girl Magic, her highly anticipated sophomore album. An artist in every sense of the word, across 15 tracks of attitude, energy, heart and community, Honey demonstrates a broad range of disciplines and influences, enlisting A-List collaborators such as Channel Tres, Eve, Pabllo Vittar, Josh Caffe, Mike Dunn, and more for an unmissable, boundary-pushing LP.
Honey won her first Grammy (Best Dance/Electronic Album) for producing two records on Beyonce's chart-topping album Renaissance, redefining what it is to be a DJ. She remixed Beyonce's lead single “Break My Soul”, and is also working on new music with Madonna. Now unapologetically expressing her own sound on Black Girl Magic, she unveils the next chapter of her development as a producer and songwriter.
Honey Dijon is a social reference, its goal is to transmit all musical knowledge and creative energy to queer, coloured, and marginalized people from society to make them visible. Identity, freedom, and self-actualization reflect their inspiration from taking over worldwide known clubs - also called free zones - where we can all become our most intimate aspiration.
