Honey Redmond (born June 21, 1968), known professionally as Honey Dijon, is an American DJ, producer and electronic musician. She was born in Chicago and is based out of New York City. She has performed at clubs, art fairs, galleries and fashion events worldwide. Renowned for not adhering to any particular genre, Honey Dijon is known for curating cross-genre sets. Honey Dijon grew up in the 1970s on the south side of Chicago, in what she has described as a "very middle-class, loving African-American family” that was very musical. She began clubbing during her mid-teens with her parents' acceptance as long as her academics did not suffer. In the 1990s, she began to perform as a DJ. Around 2000, she also became active as a producer. During her time in Chicago she met and was mentored by DJs and producers such as Derrick Carter, Mark Farinaand Greenskeepers. In the late 1990s, Honey Dijon moved to New York, where she was introduced to Maxi Records and Danny Tenaglia. After first being exposed to techno in Chicago's house scene, she performed on New York City's underground club circuit and played sets at fashion shows. Dijon was described as a "popular house-music D.J." by the New York Times in 2013. In 2018, Resident Advisor stated that she had popularized "a rambunctious DJ style that leans heavily on golden-era disco, techno and house", while Dijon herself acknowledged that "a lot of people still associate me with swingy Chicago and classic house and disco, but I can rock dirty rhythmic techno as well." Redmond is transgender. She has been a vocal advocate for trans rights and awareness, speaking from her experience as a black trans woman DJ in dance music. In 2016, she was interviewed by the British television channel Channel 4 on the issue of trans visibility. At a 2017 event hosted by the MoMA PS1 museum in New York City, she led a roundtable discussion "focused on those who have, like her, found safety and creative expression within the New York club scene."
