HOUSEPITALITY brings Chicago mix-master DJ HEATHER, prepare thyself…
Dj Heather is hands down one of the most exciting djs to ever come out of Chicago… as I said in my Facebook invite:
If you have never seen or heard of dj Heather, then simply accept the fact that you are still in house music diapers… yep.. don’t take that personal, just come get a house music spanking from one of Chicago’s most classic disc jockey artists, Heather. She is a floor crusher… You are in for it kids…
We are very very excited here at Housepitality because one thing we know is that every artist we’ve ever booked has brought their DEEPEST HEAT to our house, hence, Heather is not going to take it easy on you… Those of you who ARE familiar with Heather are very excited because they know how she gets down and makes YOU get down. So, go do your yoga, pilates, juice fast meditation or whatever you need to do to prepare your body and mind to receive the channeled funk from one of the best female djs on earth.. YEP. Heather is about to go to WORK on yer azz.. Our dear friend Mahogany Luciana will be hosting the evening and bringing some beautiful decorative expression to Icon.
OK, the night is hot.. Miguel Solari (moi) and Tyrel Williams, both originally stemming from Chicago with deep roots, will be opening up for Heather.. Lets keep it proper kids.. CHICAGO biat***S.. yeah.. Anyway, in the back room we have a very exclusive 3 hour disco set by Sergio Fedasz of San Francisco’s great party, GO-BANG. OH S***, we don’t play.. we have MORE..
D-STUCTURE (d-structuresf.com) will be doing an art show with fantastic art from Sean Sczepanik…. Its amazing critical art. Come early for the art show, it starts at 9pm and FREE champagne will be pouring until 10pm. We make it easy don’t we?

DJ HEATHER BIO:
DJ Heather was named one of Chicago’s Top Forty-Five Artists alongside Kanye West, Billy Corgan and Green Velvet!
In the past few years the Chicago house community has produced a number of innovative and distinct djs trained in the art of transforming tranquil dance floors into spaces of sheer bedlam and bliss. Their committed vision of undiluted musical appreciation, interactive communication, improvisation and basic integrity has brought greater attention to all the city’s great djs including the genre busting DJ Heather. Widely regarded as one of the premier selectors in the nation, this Chicagoan demonstrates her skills and sharp deck acumen for the massives throughout the Windy City and the world at large with verve and undeniable talent.
2005 marked DJ Heather’s installment to the much heralded Fabric CD series, for the club of the same name. “With [Fabric] 21 I had a concept in mind; most of the material had to have been played at the club to give it an honest feel.” Judging by critics and house enthusiasts she has done just that. “At the end of the day to make a room full of people happy is difficult to do. You become part mind reader , guru, sensei, educator, entertainer and babysitter all at once. All the experiences I have had, made who I am today. As a person and dj. I love what I do.”
In 2006, DJ Heather toured extensively with Colette in support of their House of OM double disc release. Following worldwide accolades, in 2007 Om Records announced Summer Sessions 2 mixed by Om family members DJ Heather and Onionz. The release followed the success of the first volume of the series mixed by Groove Junkies, Chuck Love and DJ Fluid. In 2008 she joined fellow OM label artists – Colette, Fred Everything and Andy Caldwell – on the House of OM tour.
With over 15 years of experience behind her Dj Heather has grown to become one of the Windy City’s main Dj exports. She is an artist who defies conformity, defines quality and continues to nurture her solid skills for soul music of the technological generation.
