HotDish has been at it for two years now and each show has coagulated into a local movement with unmistakable energy in an intimate setting. Their TWO-YEAR ANNIVERSARY BLOWOUT is sure to impress! They’ve dug in their couch cushions and pockets to bring a true icon of dance music, Lady D (Chicago, IL – D’Lectable Music) to showcase the occasion.
Lady D got her start in A&R with AfterHours Records where she was responsible for giving Kaskade his career and signing other huge well-known artists. She has appeared on such labels as BlackJack, Vista, Body Music, and her own imprint, D’Lectable. She has been requested by celebs such as Billy Corgan, Queen Latifah, Dennis Rodman, Black Eyed Peas, and the cast of Cirque Du Solei; she has also played alongside Francois K, King Britt, Ron Trent, Derrick Carter, Heather, Colette, and many more. Lady D has been featured in Billboard, Spin, URB, iDJ, DMA, DJ Mag, Chicago Mag, UR, 5 Mag and more. She’s rocked Europe, Asia, Mexico, Canada, and throughout the USA. A pillar of the Chicago house scene, she’s been a constant player at Smart Bar and is a resident at the city’s most famous and longest running party, Boom Boom Room. This year, Lady D was featured at The Wanderlust Festival and Lollapalooza’s 20th Anniversary on Perry’s stage. She will (without doubt) flatten the Record Room!
Starting off the night is Minneapolis’ (via Chicago) DJ Xel. No doubt a vet on the decks with a hell’a selection for booty shaking! Show early and show your love!
HotDish hosts include Nate Laurence (www.natelaurence.com) and J Matthews (dj-jmatthews.com). Though they have often been under the radar to many, they are both true soldiers in the underground dance culture and have been since the early 90′s. Nate is a rave-era veteran, an intoxicated DJ, and one of the most respected producers globally with releases on more than a dozen labels. He’s provided remixes for the likes of DJ Dan, Chuck Love, the Inland Knights, and Bryan Jones, all while holding a national/international gig rotation for the past six years. Nate is also the owner of a new record label (with philanthropic objectives), Pluralistic Records (www.pluralisticrecords.com). J Matthews (also a rave-era DJ) is the gel of the duo. He hosts his own radio show “Funk Yeah FM” on Chicagohousefm.com and is a staple that has showcased his talents at high-profile venues including First Avenue, Quest, and the long-running “Bump” at the Phoenix Landing in Boston, MA.
