Starting off playing a blend of soul, hip hop, RnB, jazz and disco classics, she honed her skills in small clubs and bars in and around Chicago, eventually becoming a respected hip hop DJ.

The cross over to house music came after playing hip hop at an album release party for LL Cool J at the Crobar. After the event she went to see Derrick Carter and some friends play at a House party.

Seeing how different the energy and vibe was, within a few hours Heather had decided to incorporate more house music into her sets.

DJ Heather, real name Heather Robinson, was born in Brooklyn, New York but now makes her home in Chicago the birth place of House music.

The love of music which she gained as a youngster, listening to her parents wide ranging selection of music, has led her to becoming one of Chicago’s most celebrated and world class international DJ’s and a true pioneer of the craft of throwing down on the decks.
