LIVE! On the internet now, watch the second episode of THECRAFT, featuring Chicago’s own DJ HEATHER.
What is THECRAFT you ask?
Have you ever wanted to know, emphatically, what a lyric truly meant, or where it came from? Have you ever wanted to know what the studio experience is like for some of your favorite producers? Each episode of THECRAFT will feature one music maker, in their environment, talking about their creative process – from what has shaped their artistic perspective to how they have evolved into the artist they are now.
Episode two of THECRAFT takes an in depth look at DJ Heather.
DJ Heather, one of Chicago’s top music talents, joins us for the latest episode of THECRAFT! With fifteen years of experience behind her, DJ Heather has risen from the ranks of Chicago’s underground DJs into one of the most celebrated house DJs today. DJ Heather is known for her relentless mixing and programming style and when she’s behind the decks there is not a still body on the floor. As one of the busiest people in dance music today, DJ Heather has toured over 500 cities and is currently the owner of her own imprint Blackcherry Recordings. DJ Heather is an artist who defies conformity, defines quality and continues to nurture her solid skills for soul music of the technological generation.
