The Spotlight | J. Phlip at U Street Music Hall (January 14, 10pm)

J. Phlip – Jessica Phillippe – is diehard, born with true grit and skills to pay the bills. Despite her success with the Dirtybird gang, she’s still out there in record stores on the regular… digging, uncovering precious gems and weaving them into her dynamic sets with panache. She’s a hard-working, dedicated lady who refuses to compromise and aims to rock the dance floor without relying on the most obvious tracks. Production-wise she’s fearsome, lacing her tracks with a tough yet bouncy flavor. Her prowess in both disciplines combined with her infectious sense of fun and mind-boggling depth of knowledge make her one of the most revered DJs on the global circuit today.

After winning a DJ competition in 2005, she toured the US and moved from her hometown, Champaign, Illinois, to the birthplace of house music, Chicago, then later to San Francisco. Her refusal to give up led her to connect with the Dirtybird crew and make some real progress. Club and festival tours are now a regular occurrence while releases on Claude VonStroke’s highly respected imprint have established her as a reputable source of dance floor killers.

Come hear J. Phlip in action and you can expect to experience a full booty workout and have your mind blown. You’ll be surprised, energized and occasionally weirded out. This is a lady who knows her stuff, yet continues to refine her craft. She’s embarked on several tours of Europe and the US, attracting an ever-growing fanbase with each electrifying performance. Spending 3 years living and DJing in Berlin has helped Phlip to gain an understanding of the European market – she was only supposed to be there for 5 months, but there’s some kind of time warp in Berlin that does that to people. Don’t take our word for it, go check her out yourselves… and be prepared to lose it.
