Superjane Sweet 16 @ Smartbar June 8th 2013

The first and best female DJ collective Superjane will be throwing its Sweet 16 reunion party at 10 PM on Saturday, June 8th at Smartbar, 21+. Tickets are $12 dollars before midnight and $10 if you buy them in advance. Every show these women throw is a historic milestone, so you’ll be going down in the books just by showing up.

Since the group’s inception in 1997, the four fierce women of Superjane have used their good taste to transform the way we think about house music. Their hard-driven mixes will keep your head bopping ’til the break of dawn.

DJ Colette’s classical music training combined with Mark Farina and Derrick Carter, her primary house influences. That eclectic background bred her to spin like a pro at a time when women were still fighting for basic recognition in the male-dominated disco world.

Colette’s sultry, oft-improvised vocals are inspired by DJ Heather. Born in Brooklyn but bred in Chicago, Heather got started in the industry by working at her college’s radio station. Things have changed. Now, Heather works with Om Records to produce some serious savasana beats. She was named one of Chicago’s top 45 artists after founding her own record label, BlackCherry, and continues to put out smooth, progressive mixes and make local house fans proud.

DJ Dayhota got her start mixing at underground parties in Chicago. Now her name rings a bell. She’s been featured by Jane magazine, MTV, Billboard, and others. What started out as a drifting residency took off into an international disc jockey career with dates in Paris, London, and NYC.

Lady D is a Chicago local and master of the maternal rhythm. Her boundless energy fuels her life as a mother to a freshman in high school and unofficial mother of the Chicago house circuit; she started spinning in 1995 and never stopped. Performing for major names like Diesel, Cirque du Soleil, and Francois K hasn’t phased her, though. She gave Kaskade a leg up in the biz and brought her talents to Superjane after trotting the globe. Considering her colleagues’ creative capabilities, she finally met her match.

Smartbar is located at 3730 N. Clark St.
