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 just as fearsome, lacing her tracks with a tough yet bouncy flavour. 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. Ever since the purchase of a cheap set of belt-drive decks and a mixer on her 19th birthday she really hasn’t looked back and, after completing her studies in Engineering, the straight-A student jumped head first into her true passion, music. She won a DJ competition in 2005, toured the USA and moved from her hometown, Champaign, Illinois, to the birthplace of house music, Chicago.

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 ya know, there’s some kind of time warp in Berlin that does that to people. 2014 already involves more action than a James Bond movie with another tour of Europe in full swing, dates all over the United States including three residencies: Detroit, Miami and San Francisco – plus there’s plenty more production work in the pipeline. Hold tight for yet more analogue awesomeness. Don’t take our word for it, go check her out yourselves… and be prepared to lose your shit. That’s what’s up.
