2018 has been Taya’s year, from closing Australia’s biggest festival Splendour In The Grass, to
working in the studio with Carl Cox. Starting off the year strong, TAYA’s second EP on Bassic
Records, “Valhalla”, nearly bettered his debut, “Perception”, and coincided with a 12 stop
nationwide tour. “Love Get No Enemy” climbed up through the Beatport Deep House Top 10
apart of Open Records’ “Expansion Pack ll” and remixes for Bunny Tiger Dubs and Ugenius
Music out turned stunning results, with his fated debut on the legendary Circus Recordings
developing behind the scenes.

TAYA has truly weaponized groove, formulating deep, darkened house blended with
progressive jaunts. Cultivating this unique style with the Bassic Records and Circus Recordings
families, his smooth yet ferocious experiments with groove have received praise and support
from some of the most respected producers in the game: Carl Cox, Yousef, Beckers, Cid Inc,
Nicole Moudaber, Township Rebellion, Jamie Stevens; and tastemakers: Mixmag, inthemix,
Decoded Magazine, Point Blank, OzEDM, Music Is 4 Lovers and Progressive House

TAYA’s passionate approach has led him to feature regularly at festivals Splendour In The
Grass, Falls, Subsonic Music Festival, Rabbits Eat Lettuce, Earth Frequency and Bohemian
Beatfreaks. Additional to residencies and regular slots at Jenja Bali, elsewhere, La La Land, The
Northern and Capulet, TAYA has been the big name on the bill for acclaimed venues and club
brands including Revolver, Breakfast Club, Tramp, Subsonic Music’s Subclub, The Burdekin
Hotel and Subculture (Nouméa).

2017 saw TAYA’s skill and determination win Beatport’s first Beats In School Producer
Competition in conjunction with Yousef’s Circus Recordings. Consequently, TAYA is the newest
member of the world renowned label, alongside a hefty list of the world’s most prominent
names: Jamie Jones, Sasha, Hot Since 82, Joris Voorn, Yousef himself and many more. To say
the very least, the evolution of the TAYA journey is exciting and adventurous.

“He is skilled, makes great tunes and has a really positive energy.” - Yousef
