DJ, Producer, Remixer, Lady D is one of Chicago's most in demand performers whose reputation has taken her to Europe, Asia, Russia and all parts of North America. With a career that spans work as an influential A & R for Afterhours Music to heading her own label D'lectable, Lady D has been credited for launching the career of Kaskade and being instrumental in releasing some of underground house music's most beloved tunes.

Starting out professionally in 1995, Lady D began as a local favorite for club and rave bookings who soon got local Midwest promoters excited to witness her energy for themselves. With frequent bookings in Detroit, Milwaukee and St. Louis, other parts of the country began calling. Soon, Lady D was penetrating markets on both coasts and into Canada and Mexico. In 1997, along with DJ's Colette, Dayhota and Heather, she helped to establish North America's first all-woman DJ collective, Superjane.

Making the natural transition to production, Lady D released her first track, "Champagne Lady" on Afterhours Music, produced with the help of Glenn Underground. The track, which fuses elements of dirty disco and deep house, is featured on the Afterhours compilation Sessions Vol.2. On the heels of that release, Lady D compiled, licensed and produced a mix CD for Afterhours entitled Naked Kaleidoscope which remains a classic as an early harbinger of the Naked Music sound. Since then, she's been released on Vista/Large, Body Music, Sneakerz, Journey's By DJ's, Black Jack, Hed Kandi, Tool Room, Open Bar, D'lectable, Carillo Music, and In It Together Records and worked with artists like Demarkus Lewis, Ron Carroll, Ralphi Rosario as well as been remixed by Paul Johnson, Felix da Housecat, Mark Knight and Tyree Cooper to name a few. Her smash hit with Ron Carroll, "You Rock My World" was licensed to over 18 compilations.

DJ Lady D has been featured in numerous print, television, and film media including Billboard, Spin, i-D/Vice, Mixmag, iDJ, and in the music documentaries Girl, The Godfather of Disco, and Slipcue. Her story as a significant figure in Chicago's house music community appears in the books, Do You Remember House by Micah Salkind, How To DJ Right by Frank Broughton, and Disco Demolition: The Night Disco Died. For several years now, you can catch her on the radio the last Friday of every month on 91.1 FM-Chicago. Keep up with DJ Lady D at and @djladyd.
