About Justine Delaney:
“A perfect storm of self-made street fashion and designer styles, native New Yorker Justine “D” Delaney not only helped open the door for female deejays, but, also, knocked it off its hinges” The New York Post
The original. The tastemaker. The first. All of these are terms that have been applied to DJ Justine D more than once by the media and nightlife royalty. As the consummate professional she is often thought of as one of the best female DJ’s working in New York City.
Equally at home DJing a chic press cocktail or a sweaty dance party, she is a native who honed her skills on the most infamous dance floors over a decade ago. Having this depth and versatility for both corporate events and parties, has made Justine an essential choice for any client looking for just the right mix of cool and fun at their next activation.
Her impressive client list includes Mercedes-Benz, Apple, Martin Margiela, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Guggenheim Museum, Nike, NBC, Topshop, H&M, Club Monaco, Ray-Ban, Absolut, Johnny Walker, MAC Cosmetics, Madewell, Warby Parker, alice+olivia, Madonna’s Material Girl fashion line, Refinery29 and many others. She has also worked with and opened for such talent as Patti LaBelle, The Strokes, Phoenix, The Rapture, James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem), DFA Records, Moby, Kelis, The Cramps, The New York Dolls and many others.
“You’d be hard-pressed to find a party hungry New Yorker who would deny the ongoing sanitization of the city’s nightlife. But thankfully… there are people like Justine D.” said i-D Magazine. In the early 00s Justine rose to prominence as a DJ, scene maker and style arbiter creating and managing nightlife properties like the traveling Motherf**ker parties, Tiswas and the the now shuttered Williamsburg venue Studio B. She quickly became known for her exceptional taste and Djing prowess as well as an essential part of the collision between the rock’n roll and dance music worlds that would change dance floors forever.
In recent years Justine studied Classic Pastry Arts at the French Culinary Institute and became a classically trained pastry chef with recipes featured in Martha Stewart Living, Food & Wine and Cherry Bombe magazine. While pursuing her other passion, she has made regular appearances at The Boom Boom Room, Le Bain, Le Baron and The Electric Room. As The New York Times Ruth LaFerla stated,“Justine Delaney speaks fashion like a native, her conversation studded with insider argot and references… Listening, you would peg her as an indie designer. In fact, Justine D., as she is known to her public, is on cozier terms with a turntable than she is with a cutting table; her medium is vinyl — the kind that spins.”
