TAAHLIAH’s DJ design is simply as courageous as her productions. Seldom dipping listed below 140BPM, her sets are an event of contemporary rave music, mixing pleased hardcore edits of industrial pop tracks with quick paced music from her contemporaries. TAAHLIAH’s Fact Mix is off the wall in the very best possible method, integrating reworks of David Guetta, Azaelia Banks and Rosalía with the blog site home revival from Doss, a piano home remix of SOPHIE’s ‘Infatuation’ and host of mad club cuts from ÅMRTÜM, Dialog, Himera and TAAHLIAH herself.

“The meaning of play … with a drive for kinetic energy,” is how TAAHLIAH explains the mix. “The prioritisation of motion and glamour, throughout a time when there’s an absence of sunshine.”
