Guest > Heidi > Biography

 

Heidi grew up in Windsor Ontario in Canada, which is just across the border from Detroit
Michigan. Coming from a family of music lovers, the house was always filled with a variety of
classic rock, blues and folk throughout her childhood. Originally an indie kid, she started
travelling to gigs in Detroit as soon as she could. The music scenes of the Motor City and
Chicago left a deep impression on Heidi and her record collection. Influenced by her electronic
producing friends in windsor, gradually developed a love for techno and house music. Moving to
England for a year in 1997 her eyes were opened even wider to the joys of underground dance
music.


She moved to London permanently in 2000 to immerse herself in the music scene, clubbing
every weekend and hanging out in record shops. In 2002 Heidi got a job working at the now
defunct Koobla records, and in 2003 was part of the team that opened up London's foremost
record shop, Phonica. Through her work she gained invaluable experience of the scene and
underground culture. her excellent Dj and artist contacts soon led her from vinyl fanatic to
budding DJ. She'd been putting together sets for many of the countries top djs, so it was a
natural progression for her.


In 2004 she met Patrick Bodmer and Phillip Jung otherwise know as the german electronic duo
M.A.N.D.Y. They became great friends and it soon lead to gigs together in berlin where it really
started to take off for her. In 2005 Heidi started playing all over europe and Russia with regular
visits to Italy, Spain and France and Germany where she plays regularly in Berlin at the
Panorama bar and Watergate club and at The Monza club in Frankfurt and Ibiza where she also
holds a residency. She also became a regular at Fabric, London's leading underground dance
club. In 2006 Heidi did her first release "vejer" on Get Physical which was a track with her
partner Riton. It was an exclusive to go on the mixed compilation c.d. for Monza Ibiza that she
also did. It received rave reviews. She was building her skills and gaining experience for 2007which was her busiest year to date.


This was the year that really shaped Heidi as a dj. She was playing all over the world and in a different country every weekend. She rocked in miami at the WMC and then it was the 5 years of get physical european tour which saw her playing alongside Bookashade, M.A.N.D.Y, Dj. T and the rest of the gang. As well as releasing another track with riton "to the gum". A slice of filthy chicago influenced house for the compilation which accompanied the tour. Then it was off to Detroit where she played her home coming gig in the beatport tent at the Detroit Electronic Music Festival. It was a real triumph for her being able to return home and play in front of her family and the people that she looked up to and admired when she was a teenager living in Windsor. Dreaming of one day being able to play in Detroit. Heidi also did her first north american tour which saw her rockin dancefloors from New York to Los Angeles to Vancouver. The summer was full of exciting times as well. She slammed the Loft club at Sonar in Barcelona and drove the kids to insanity at Monza In Ibiza.

Then in the autumn she embarked on her first australian tour which saw her showing her skills and bringing her sound and excitement to Perth, Brisbane, Sydney and meeting up with M.A.N.D.Y in Melbourne to play a gig that will stay in minds of everyone who attended forever. The end of the year saw Heidi return to North America and Mexico for another successful tour. She's a hard working Dj who loves her job and wouldn't change anything for the world. Heidi is currently working on an album for Get Physical with her partner Riton. She is also returning to Mexico and North and Central america for a huge tour with M.A.N.D.Y in the spring. Keep a close eye on this lady.

More good things are to come from her. Her energy behind the decks and her style of djing is infectious. It's hard to stand still when she's in control and if you have been to see her play you will understand.
