Dragonfruit Fridays // TAYA // March 9


Taya is touring Australia for his new EP ‘VALHALLA’ on Bassic Records. Playing at some of Australia’s greatest venues in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Central Coast and Byron Bay.

Catch him playing at Capulet this week for his debut at Dragonfruit Fridays alongside AVAXA who also joins us for the first time in the garden. Christian Kerr and Jesse Kuch on support duties!

T A Y A ' S . B I O G R A P H Y :

TAYA has truly weaponized groove, formulating deep, darkened tech-house blended with progressive jaunts. Cultivating his unique sound with the Bassic Records family, TAYA’s debut EP “Perception”, remixed by Matan Caspi and Thankyou City, earnt huge support and 5-star ratings from Beckers, Cid Inc, Jamie Stevens and tastemakers including Decoded Magazine and Progressive House Worldwide. His January 2018 EP “Valhalla” included remixes by Gabriel Moraes and The Note V, a smooth yet ferocious experiment with low swung drive, has had names like Nicole Moudabber, Soul Button, Hoj and Gab Rhome snatching it up, with a 12 stop national tour just for good measure.

2017 saw TAYA’s skill and determination win Beatport’s Beat's In School Producer Scholarship with Yousef’s Circus Recordings. Consequently, TAYA is the newest member of Circus Recordings alongside a hefty list of the world’s most prominent names: Carl Cox, Green Velvet, Jamie Jones, Sasha, Hot Since 82, Joris Voorn, Yousef himself and many more. 2018 is set to be TAYA’s biggest year by far, with “Love Get No Enemy” a part of the heavily charting Open Records’ “Expansion Pack 2”, imminent remixes of Doppel on Bassic, of Pantheon on Ugenius, and of course his fated EP with Circus Recordings.

TAYA’s passionate approach has led him to feature regularly at festivals Splendour In The Grass, Falls, Rabbits Eat Lettuce, Bohemian Beatfreaks and Bizarre Garden. It became commonplace to be first choice support for acts including Claptone, Dusky, Jay Lumen, Catz n Dogz, DJ T, Kolombo, Doorly, Flight Facilities and Rufus: additional to residencies and regular slots at Jenja Bali, Elsewhere, La La Land, The Northern and Capulet. The diversity in the TAYA sound blurs boundaries for genre devotees, never failing to have all bodies on the dance-floor moving not matter the setting.

Birthed of the doof scene in the surrounding hills of Byron Bay, Taya was brought up into a life rich with musical influence, experimenting with live music from the tender age of 9, approaching DJing at 13 and immersing himself into the world of production at 15. Playing a big part in the NSW north coast psytrance scene as a teenager, Taya made the move to house and techno at his coming of age. From Europe to USA to Indonesia and time spent calling Berlin and Bali home has exposed him to musing that has led the way to growth into the modern TAYA sound

    • At first glance, Brisbane DJ DefWill appears to be going from strength to strength, balancing university studies, events management roles for festivals like Splendour in the Grass, Rabbits Eat Lettuce and Live Large, DJing some of the deepest techno rhythms at some of the primest techno parties on the east coast of Oz and also that he has never let the fact that he is deaf hold him back. Though if one takes the time to look (and talk) a little deeper it becomes clear that he, like many of us, carries burdens that are well beyond his control and the weight of which has been known to bring even the strongest of us down.
      New OzClubbers writer Dastardly Kuts gets deep with DefWill.

    • From the DJ’s perspective; since Larry Levan’s early days at the Paradise Garage, the remix – or playing different versions of songs – was one of the first notable aspects of what we now know as DJ Culture. His ethic of refreshing successful dancefloor movers in the late seventies passed down generations of DJ has been long-established as almost a perfunctory task, almost a must-do to be undertaken by the disk jockey.

    • Here is a fresh new mix from us—and one that definitely gives us the warm and fuzzies!

      So, our 'Attic' brand as a whole, the music we push—and, indeed, Andrew and I as individual DJs—is often centred around music on the lower, slower, deeper, warm-up tip. That is a label we've always worn with pride.

    • Recently I got to go check out the official Outlook Festival Queensland launch party in Brisbane. Presented by Quality Street Byron Bay, the event concept paid tribute to one of Europe’s most exciting Drum and Bass festivals and is a celebration of sound system culture.
