About J. Phlip
J.Phlip, known to most as Jess or Jessica Rose Phillippe, was completely ruined when she discovered house music in her hometown of Champaign, IL just 2 hours south of Chicago. This location might help describe the how or why behind the unique genre bending blend that Phlip brings to the dancefloor. Perhaps it was the proximity to Chicago that let house music make its influence, but the distance that allowed her the freedom to eventually welcome other sounds into her mix. Her sets posses this fun lets-not-forget-this-is-dance-music feeling and simultaneously keeps you guessing as to what might come next. Her collection spans house, tech house, deep house, techno, random bleeps, and special bloops. In 2005 she won the Beauty and the Beats competition, since then she has made name for herself as a DJ in Chicago and now as DJ-slash-Producer in San Francisco, for Phonic at the Endup, and Sf's own Dirtybird label.
Armed with a resume that includes vocalist, DJ, and producer, and a bold, genre-defying sound that merges tech-house, electro, techno, breakbeat, downtempo, hip-hop, dancehall from around the globe, Mozaic is a force to be reckoned with on and off the dancefloor. A 10-year veteran hailing from the San Francisco bay area, Mozaic employs digital and vinyl (often including on-the-fly mashups and live vocals) for an eclectic, floor-rocking experience- one that is never without it's share of curveballs. From lush to dirty, minimal to maximum, a supernatural good time is guaranteed......
