She’s the latest signing to Get Physical, home to Booka Shade and one of the most watched labels around. Not only was her first 12” released on the respected Berlin imprint, but she’s also mixed their latest compilation ‘Monza Club Ibiza Compilation Vol. 1’. So just who is Heidi?
Those who don’t follow Get Physical too closely might have thought the first woman on the label was M.A.N.D.Y, but that’s two men actually, and the honour rightfully goes to Heidi. Originally from Canada but now based in London, vinyl junkies might recognise her face from behind the counter at Soho record shop Phonica, but by night she's secretly a working DJ, spinning at respected parties at top venues such as Space Ibiza, Fabric and the Panoramabar in Berlin.
And while some DJs take ten years to get around to releasing their first mix CD (hi Marco Carola), Heidi doesn’t mess around: 'Monza Club Ibiza Compilation Vol. 1' has just been released on Get Physical. Not a bad gig. Not envious enough yet? Recently she’s also been stepping into production too, with her first single 'Vejer' on Get Physical showing a taste for ravey, epic electrohouse.
So inquiring minds want to know: how does a new DJ find their feet so quickly? RA sat down with Heidi in London and found out.
