2018 was 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: Point Blank, inthemix, Decoded Magazine, OzEDM, Music Is 4 Lovers, Deep House Sweden and Progressive House Worldwide.
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 adventurous.
