About our artists:
“DJ Nola got her start as a DJ over 15 years ago as a radio DJ for the Duluth station KUMD. Soon after, she discovered house music and gravitated towards it. After nearly a decade of primarily playing house music, she started exploring the songs that were sampled in some of her favorite house tracks, at which time she got really into disco and funk music – interests that carry on to this day. In a day and age when most DJs use computers or CDJs to ply their trade, DJ Nola plays almost exclusively vinyl. She threw a series of disco parties in Duluth before moving to Minneapolis last year, where she has since opened for Rick Wilhite, Jon Hester, played at some of the city’s biggest house parties, including Communion and House Proud, and started a new funk and disco focused party series called Freak of the Week at various Twin Cities venues.”

“Jameen has been a dance-music diehard since the mid-nineties, when she began going to the storied techno parties at New York’s Limelight, dancing all night to techno legends Lenny Dee and Josh Wink. But her heart is in the Twin Cities dance scene. Since the late nineties, after returning to her native Midwest, Jameen’s melding of soulful house and, as she puts it, “light, fluffy, beautiful melodic techno” has earned her the lasting respect of Minneapolis-St. Paul’s vibrant DJ community.
Shortly after learning the ropes of DJing in the vinyl era, under the tutelage of Minneapolis house master E-Tones, in 2000, Jameen, along with Medicinall and NatOsha, co-founded Ladies on Wax, the first all-woman DJ crew in Minneapolis. Jameen remains a vinyl-only DJ, for its tactility and visual stimulation; often, these 12-inches come from Twin Cities artists such as Auto Kinetic and labels like Kajunga. “I like to support local as much as I can,” she explains.
Even during breaks from DJing, Jameen has been a hardy regular at area parties. “Dancing is therapeutic for me,” she says. “You release all the negative shit that’s built up in your body. It’s a spiritual experience for me. I feel the other people’s energy on the dance floor.”

Josh: “I started deejaying vinyl in 1998. I describe my sound as beats and rhythms on the house and techno dance tip. Underground dance rhythms!! My style is based around long layering of mixes but also letting the record speak 🗣 for itself ! I approach in a free form meaning I never have structure designed before other then the records in my bad/crate. What motivates me is the movement the rhythm and the release of weight holding you down from any other thought realm.” ☺️
