CHICAGO IN THE HOUSE
Featuring: DJ HEATHER, IZ&DIZ and BRYAN JONES
DJ HEATHER [BlackCherry, Om, Apt / Chicago]
After absolutely destroying the decks at no less than a half a dozen parties at this year?s Winter Music Conference in Miami ? including a main-stage set at the Om party alongside Sneak & Farina ? DJ Heather has confirmed her role as the first lady of underground of house. A loyal ambassador of her hometown, Heather reps Chicago hard when she he hits the road ? always bringing that fierce jackin? but funky sound that has won her fans from Ibiza to Fabric, Japan, Vancouver and all places in between. With over a hundreds dates a year, the success of her own BlackCherry Recordings and a forthcoming double mixed-CD on Om Records (with Colette) 2006 looks to be Heather?s year indeed. If you saw her throw down at Commodore with Mark Farina at our May long-weekend event last year, you know this set with her headlining is guaranteed to blow the roof off. No cheese?ya herd!
IZ + DIZ [Tweekin?, Classic, Igloo, Om, Blue Collar / San Francisco + Chicago]
DJ Iz (aka Joshua) and Diz met back in Chicago and they both went on to work at the now legendary Prescription records in Chicago under the tutelage of house luminaries Chez Damier & Ron Trent. Now a decade later, with a string of classic releases under their belt ? including ?What We Need? on Silver Network, ?Mouth? on Classic and the current smash for Om Records ?Magnificent? ? this production & deejaying duo always bring the HEAT. While both do produce separately, it is their unique energy that comes together as Iz&Diz that have kept them busy packing out clubs like Pink (SF), Smart Bar (CHI), Fabric (UK) & Sub Club (Glasgow) on the regular. While we?ve had both of these cats deejay on their own, this is a Vancouver DEBUT for Iz+Diz together ? so don?t miss a piece of history.
BRYAN JONES [Control, BlackCherry, / Chicago]
Current leader of the new school of Chicago producer-deejays, Bryan Jones has made a huge impact in a very short period of time. His releases have been name-checked and played by Derrick Carter, Mark Farina, Heather, Sound Republic, Joey Youngman, Johnny Fiasco and many others, and his own Control Recordings has been setting sales records at a few of the best underground record shops in the US. This will be his Canadian debut, and if
what we heard in Miami this year from Mr. Jones is any indication, y?all are in for a treat!
