The story of Jennifer Hicks, better known to us as Glojin, begins in Jan 2007, when she fell in love with Electronic Dance Music and first placed her hands on some vinyl. Starting out with spinning dirty break-beat tracks, as her passion for music evolved she slowly developed an interest in house before finally falling passionately in love with trance music. Her unique style shows true to her roots and evolution through EDM, consisting primarily of tech trance, techy house, and progressive vibes, though her skill as a DJ is not limited to just those genres, as evidenced by several dirty electro sets she has done in her time.
Starting out playing a gig in Fayeteville, to a crowd of over two hundred people, Glojin has made a name for herself that has helped launch her to playing parties with the likes of Deisel Boy, DJ Hive, Markus Schulz, and even the Insomniac sponsored Face Lift Tour with Paul Oakenfold, DJ Chuckie, and Nervo, across both the Forum and HALO nightclubs in Charlotte, NC. She even once did a tag set with Ronski Speed in Atlanta, GA during an after party.
Currently starting to learn production techniques, you can expect to be seeing new remixes, mashups, and even self-created tracks coming from this talented young artist soon. To true underground parties and high end sophisticated clubs, she’s known as a woman with a style that can rock any crowd. High energy dance music and an ability to get anyone on the dance floor, there’s no other female DJ in the scene today with as much passion and heart for what she does.
When asked about how she approaches a set prior to a performance, her simple, yet powerful, reply was simply “I like to speak to the crowd through my music.”
In the last 2 years of residing in the States, the determination and passion has gotten her great rewards. Landing a residency at one of Charlotte’s hottest night club Kazba , also opened for the well respected Sander van Doorn at the Phoenix night club, as well as Tritonal and other big name artist. Still on the upcoming rise be on the look out as she continues her journey in Europe.
Continuing her success in Norway, she has had the opportunity to play alongside big name Trance DJ’s such as Solarstone, First State, and Faith Mark in Belgium.
