WITH A NEW ALBUM OUT, SEMINAL DJ AND PRODUCER HONEY DIJON POSES FOR MYLES LOFTIN
After decades behind the scenes, Honey Dijon has just released an album of her own, titled Black Girl Magic, and The New York Times has given the legendary DJ and producer her due with a splashy feature. Excerpt:
"This summer, she contributed to Finally Enough Love, the remix album from Madonna, who has called Dijon 'my favorite D.J. in the whole world.' She curated the opening club night of Grace Jones’s Meltdown festival in June, which brought artists including Sippin’ T and Josey Rebelle to London’s Southbank Centre. And she was a writer and producer on Beyoncé’s acclaimed Renaissance, receiving her first Grammy nomination this month as an album of the year contributor. Three days later, she released Black Girl Magic, her own collection of vocal-laden pure house songs."
The Times commissioned Myles Loftin to shoot the accompanying portraits. Read more: "Honey Dijon Steps Up From Dance Music's Underground."
