After over two decades of pleasing enthusiastic clubbers, Deanne is more passionate than ever about bringing the party to life and her music to the masses. Her continual evolution of sound provides infectious rhythms to intimate, sexy spaces or big, booming rooms and expansive stages through her signature combinations of pulsating beats, strong synths, dramatic arrangements and a soulful sprinkling of vocals. Tech, House, Afro and Progressive House beats and rhythms are combined to take her listeners on a unique journey that is marked with emotion, sensuality, undeniable energy, and a palpable “dance floor drama”.
Hailing from Indianapolis, her style and sound set her apart and took her to the top where she commanded the Indy scene for over 10 years. Her flagship residency at famed Talbott Street nightclub shaped her early career and cemented her place in the LGBT club scene. Her passion has always been the underground house sound and that love found Deanne branching out to non-LGBTQ avenues. Playing with Paul Van Dyk, Paul Oakenfold, JJ Flores, Mark Farina, and DJ Colette, to name a few, Deanne revealed herself as a diverse player with crossover appeal. Concurrent long-running residencies on internet stations like FGRadioUSA, EnergyRadio.FM, FusionChicago, PartyRadioUSA, WeDanceAs1, and GayInternetRadioLive (G.I.R.L.) created a global audience.
Looking to expand her audience stateside and catapult her career, Deanne relocated to South Florida in late 2013. Since then, Deanne has embarked on a steady march upward in the LGBTQ scene, securing headlining appearances for Masterbeat, WE Party, One Magical Weekend, Winter Party Festival, Overdrive, Peach Party, Miami Beach Pride, Gay Days, White Party Week Miami, IML (Chicago), Distrkt C, Reload (LA), Purple Party, Dallas Pride, Circuit Saturday (Denver), Gus Presents, and Joining Hearts (Atlanta), to name a few. Deanne also has had regular appearances at legendary venues, Club Space Miami, The Midway, Hydrate, Manhole, Jungle, Xion, Crown & Anchor, The EndUp, Legacy, Heretic, The Cuff, Pavilion, Score, Heart, The Manor, Rich’s Houston and more.
As a Producer and # 1 Billboard Remixer, Deanne is also making music to move the masses. With releases on record labels like Queen House Music, Pump Records, Hammer Music, Big Mouth Music, Gonna Be Records and more, Billboard Dance Chart topping remixes for Janet Jackson, Demi Lovato, Jessica Sanchez, Jena Rose, Suzanne Palmer and Kym Sims, and support from colleagues and tastemakers, Deanne’s unique sound is pumping through venues and parties all over the world.
Never one to sit idle, Deanne is an active nightlife entrepreneur, as well. In 2018, Deanne created her party brand, Sweet Spot Nightlife. At its core, Sweet Spot was designed to be an antidote to the negativity, divisiveness and chaos of the world. The philosophy is simply to get back to basics when a party was about bringing people together to find community, acceptance, happiness and JOY through the common denominator of music. There was no better example of that than in the days of disco and early house music. A carefully curated selection of performers, design elements, venue aesthetics, atmosphere and, of course, MUSIC combine to create a VIBE reminiscent of that time. In just a short period of time, Sweet Spot has been featured as an event within Winter Music Conference, Miami Beach Pride, Chicago Pridefest, and Joining Hearts Weekend Atlanta with other successful stand-alone events in Miami and Indianapolis.
