DJ Delish lives at the epicenter of East Coast club culture, having cut her teeth on the ballroom circuit as both a DJ and performed. She’s toured as DJ for Philadelphia mainstay Naeem Juwan, and built a reputation behind the decks for her rapid-fire track selection and relentless energy, shredding the stage at Bossa Nova Civic Club and Mood Ring in New York, Philly’s The Breakfast Club, and Bungalow Beach Club in Houston, as well as a recent appearance at New York's Nowadays club with Atlanta legend and Morph head Leonce, while also collaborating with artists Bon Liver, JunglePussy, and SpankRock. In 2019, she released her debut 12” with Sweat Equity, XP, which earned her recognition in the United States and abroad, including plays on Philip Sherburne’s Lapsus Radio program in Barcelona, and press nods from DJ Mag and XPN Radio in Philadelphia. Over the past few years, she’s also unleashed a string of self-released EPs and albums on her SoundCloud, as well as a split single with Sweat Equity’s Macy Rodman. Delish is regularly touring on the East Coast again, with frequent stops in New York City, and a number of new collaborative projects, including work with AnnoxxXL and Eye Ming. She’s also regularly releasing new recordings that underscore her relentless musical drive and versatility as a writer and musician. With a string of self-released releases (including Khadijah Volumes 8 and 9 on the way), her command of multiple musical forms speakers to her time both in the booth and on the dancefloor. The vital energy of each track and each set is matched only by the wit and incisiveness of her lyrics and rhythms, with a wealth of experience and narrative ingenuity that brings personal stories to life.
