Mija, the Spanish term of endearment meaning “my girl” gives off an air of cuteness for a DJ that throws down some of the heaviest tracks we have heard. Adorable and small, but her appearance doesn’t denote anything of her DJ or production style- quite the opposite really…
Raised in Arizona, Amber Giles AKA Mija dipped her toes into the industry as a local DJ and promoter. Not necessarily a big music state, Giles didn’t receive her big break until she was thousands of miles away in TN at an annual music festival called Bonnaroo. There, Mija was approached by Skrillex, asking if she wanted to go back-to-back with him.
Flash-forward a few years, and Mija is LA-based and still working closely with her B2B bud, Skrillex and his Major Lazer partner, Diplo- lucky gal!
Mija, much like her mentors, enjoys putting out big bass, electro-forward tunes and remixes, with a fondness for hip-hop, rap, and trap. With two of the world’s most renown DJ’s teaching her along the way, the future looks bright for this teal haired fairy.
Want to dance with one of the cutest DJ’s to hit the scene? With Giles on the deck, you will be sure to be partying until the morning. Catch Mija March 9th at SOho in Santa Barbara.
