From Hey Ms. DJ :
Along with the equally formidable Heather, Dayhota and Lady D, Colette founded a collective called Superjane in their early days of DJing. These turntable wizards were already heavyweights in my mind after they made the cover of the music magazine XLR8R. Because of their precedence, and Chicago's prolific house-music scene (which, for house DJs, is like LA for actors) I had already made the decision to move to Chicago. I will never forget Luis' dismissive comment about Colette; it fueled me to get the hell out of San Diego.
Since the 1997 formation of Superjane, each member has successfully charged her individual career. Currently, in her new Los Angeles home, Colette Marino co-hosts a syndicated radio show called Maximum Rotation. Heather Robinson tours extensively around the world. In fact, her bookings were so jam-packed in Europe this month that I was unable to even interview her by email. Darlene Jackson, aka Lady D, is a full-time producer and touring DJ, and Shannon Lalongo, billed as Dayhota (which spells DJ in Spanish), does regular stints in Canada and the U.S. and has collaborated in the studio with the likes of Sombionx. Her first release arrives in the next couple of months on Chicago's Q Studios label. Together, this team of talent plans to unite for a relaunch of Superjane that will include a new website, tour, collective CD and possibly even a clothing line.
Quick Google only brought up a site for DJ Lady D; not sure the entire group, or other individual members, have 'em.
Well, you kids can do your own research for once.
Like the title says, they're spinning tonight at Smart Bar. $10 before midnight / $15 after midnight. Not sure I'll be heading to the show, but anyone who does, enjoy.
Update: Oh, right, there should be something here about sexism in the house dj community, and the use of sex appeal by women djs, and, um, lots of the usual sort of pretentious pseudo-intellectual babbling that I usually use to claim fair use by way of commentary. You've read enough of this to generate your own at this point, I'm sure.
