First Lady of dirtybird J.Phlip Announces First Headlining
“Everybody On The Floor”
North American Tour
Acid-techno goddess and heiress to the dirtybird throne J.Phlip
turns towards the national spotlight taking her underground sound
on a well deserved sonic journey of massive proportion. Her first
headlining tour, “Everybody On The Floor” will tantalize her
devoted fans this fall coast-to-coast - taking over 28 dates,
kicking off October 23.
2014 has been a seminal year for Jess. An impromptu cancellation
led to her delivering one of the most acclaimed sets of the summer
- closing the Beatport stage at Detroit’s iconic Movement Festival
In addition, she had jaw-dropping appearances at Coachella, HARD
Summer, Ultra, and Electric Forest. With these massive shows behind
her she emerged as one of this year’s breakout stars.
J.Phlip, or Jessica Phillippe, got her start from the dark
Midwestern basements of Champaign, Illinois where she studied
engineering and bought her first set of belt-drive turntables at
the age of 19. Little wonder she soon gravitated towards the
birth-place of House music, Chicago. It was there that her
acid-infused booty-minded style began to gestate, eventually
sending her West to land under the wings of the San Francisco based
dirtybird collective. Under the care of new-age House godfather
Claude VonStroke, this fledgling emerged from the nest, with a
series of releases on the label. But it was in the booth that she
truly made her mark, wowing heads, critics, and fans alike with a
fearless record selection, impeccable timing, and unmistakable
sense of fun.
The ‘Everybody on the Floor’ Tour will showcase J.Phlip’s
forthcoming ‘Walls & Lights’ EP (buy)
which is a collaboration with bassline badman Chris Lorenzo due out
September 23rd on
Safer at Night.
A full line of merch will be hosted on the dirtybird website from
Thanksgiving through the rest tour to give fans a chance to rep
this lovely bird throughout this journey and beyond.
J.Phlip will be joining forces on the tour with legend of the
underground Monty Luke. Monty has been churning his gritty sound
for years, with releases and remixes on Classic, Cadenza, Planet-E,
and his own Black Catalogue as well as the dirtybird sub-label
“Mothership”. In Jess’s own words, “Monty
came to mind as an artist I really love that is outside of the
dirtybird box. I’m really looking forward to touring with my old
pal...we just have to be careful not to kill ourselves from having
too much fun”
Through a fusion of his atmospheric arrangement and hard-hitting
house sounds, Monty stands ready and able to infiltrate the
nation’s favorite dance floors.
The “Everybody on the Floor” tour kicks off at J.Phlip’s SF
stomping grounds of Monarch, before visiting the likes of NYC’s
Verboten, HARD Day of the Dead, TV Lounge, and U Street Music Hall.
It is with pure excitement that Jess returns to the light-hearted,
tune-centric nature of the club scene past. This one is for the
