J Phlip

Chicago, USA

 

She’s still out there in record stores on the regular – digging, uncovering precious gems and weaving them into her dynamic sets. 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 moved from her hometown, Champaign, Illinois, to the birthplace of house music, Chicago. In the Windy City she endured the struggle that many musicians go through on their pathway to glory but never lost sight of her dream. A move to San Francisco resulted in more hard times, but it wasn’t long before her determination and natural talent won through. Phlip’s refusal to give up eventually 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, and elsewhere too, have established her as a reputable source of dance floor killers.
