Although we think of her as New York City's own, Battle Hymn Resident Honey DIjon is a native of the Windy City who was first inspired by the legendary house sounds of such dj pioneers such as Ron Hardy, Derrick Carter, Mark Farina, Green Velvet, and Frankie Knuckles. Honey has recently become prolific in the studio with original production as well as slew of remixes. Currently she has tracks out on Skint Records, Toolroom, and a mix compilation on Classic Records.
Honey Dijon's brazen style blends all genres without looking to the past. She captivates with her instinct, versatile sound and dazzles the club and fashion circuit in London, Paris, and New York. Seducing club-goers with her unique sound mixing classic house and disco, techno and tech house all over the world, she has become a must-see dj around the world.
THE CARRY NATION
One of Battle Hymn's residents, The Carry Nation is a NYC based production team comprised of Nita Aviance and DJ Will Automagic. Both noted producers and DJs on their own, their collaboration brings to life a unique and singularly exciting modern sound that is both rooted in New York house history and reflective of the new burgeoning underground. Together, Nita and Will as The Carry Nation create a production and DJ sound that is singularly exciting and forward thinking.
New York’s house and disco evangelist Eli Escobar has been a familiar face on the city’s scene for the last two decades. Whether tearing it up at clubs across the capital (and beyond) or throwing down super-charged disco bombs on labels like Nervous and Strictly Rhythm, Escobar rarely steps out of his four-four beat. As one third of the Tiki Disco parties in Bushwick, as well as running his own Night People label, Escobar has been putting his own twist on the city’s house and disco soundtrack, joining the dots between yesterday’s golden era classics and today’s club anthems.
