Taela Naomi is an award winning DJ, model and educator based in NYC whose talent and presence have gained attention both in NYC and internationally. Raised in Brooklyn, NY, Taela's early musical influences included everything from classical composers Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky to Curtis Mayfield, James Brown, and Michael Jackson. After earning her B.A. from Amherst College, Taela performed as a dancer with shows including The Producers, Dreamgirls, and Bill T. Jones' Broadway adaptation of Superfly. With her knowledge of diverse musical genres, natural ability for cutting and blending, impenetrable focus, and bubbly spirit, Taela has risen to become one of NYC's most sought after DJs. She has played all over NYC and has earned praise from the legendary DJ Red Alert and played alongside the great DJ Tony Touch. Her signature party, The Dance Party, has become a weekly go-to event for music lovers, dancers, and NYC trendsetters. Her latest party series, Rum + Pum Pum Shorts which features Afrobeat, dancehall, reggae, and soca music, has been selling out in record time since it launched in September 2017. Taela won the prestigious Uptown Battle of the Bars competition, earning her the title "Best Uptown DJ." As an educator, Taela created a course in the Art of DJing, which she teaches in public schools in Brownsville Brooklyn, the Bronx, and soon Harlem, which has made a huge difference in the lives of the children. Taela's mission is to transcend the typical club experience to get people to connect and to move, to be present, and to boldly fall back in love with dance parties.

Big Bliss
Big Bliss formed in late 2015 when brothers Cory and Tim Race began collaborating on a project with the aims of tapping into shared influences from 70's and 80's punk and post punk. They recruited Brooklyn songwriter Wallace May to play bass, whose leading style adds melodic layer to their trio sound. Together they deliver shimmering, jangling, energetic post punk, attempting to bridge the gap between precision, pop, dissonance and power, all within the typical confines of a three piece rock outfit.
