A spotlight of positivity in the literal and figurative darkness of nightclub culture, DJ Heat is a champion of Washington, DC area music as well as a noted national DJ. For 10 years, she made a name for herself at well-reknowned radio station WPGC 95.5. Starting off as an intern for Big Tigger, she worked her way up to an on-air personality and mixshow DJ. In 2015 she ended her tenure at the radio station in order to focus on the next phase of her career. Since then, she has done guest radio appearances on stations such as New York's Hot 97 and SiriusXM's Shade 45, as well as DJing for Grammy winning recording artist Mya. In September 2017, DJ Heat marked her return to commercial radio by joining Baltimore's 92.3 WERQ. DJ Heat is also the official DJ for the WNBA's Washington Mystics.
DJ Heat's ever-filling plate of high-profile positions has also rewarded her well in the awards department. 2014 saw her become the first female to ever be crowned DC DJ of the Year at the Fab Awards. She also took home the DC DJ of the Year honors again in 2015. At the DMV Awards, she has been a multiple-time recipient of awards for having the best blog (DCMumboSauce.com), as well as being the Most Supportive Media Person, Most Supportive Radio Personality and Most Supportive DJ. With features in the Washington Post, Complex Magazine, Hip-Hop Weekly, and a number of other journals, the impressive spread of her excellence continues to gain larger and more diverse audiences. It's no surprise that major companies such as McDonald's, the Washington Redskins, Revlon, Nike and more have reached out to DJ Heat to spin at their events. Forever breaking the glass ceiling, she placed a respective 3rd in the DC leg of the 2013 Red Bull Thre3style DJ Battle. She was the only female out of 5 DJs competing, and only the second female DJ in the battle's history to compete in the Red Bull competition.
Like many music professionals in the current generation, DJ Heat understands the necessity of navigating the space between excellent live performances and translating success to the digital realm. In this aim she has succeeded, and is a noteworthy figure in the progression of DJ culture in the 21st century.
