Biography

A San Francisco native and DJ since 1991, DJ TAJ emotes the artistic essence of the city’s counter culture history. He has both a unique look and mixing style that garners significant attention. Coupled with his diversity is his passion and dedication to the art of being a musician. His hard work has lead him to prestigious West Coast residencies with two of the most successful and well known production companies – Spundae Productions of San Francisco and United State of Consciousness Events of Seattle.

While maintaining these residencies for the past several years Taj has also played some very illustrious parties and clubs, which have taken him to an unprecedented level as a West Coast DJ. Playing for seven continuous years at San Francisco’s legendary 1015 Folsom, a 2 year residency at SF’s famous Pablo’s Sugar Shack, a 3 year residency at his self produced event Zendada, a two and a half year residency at Baby’s at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas and always a favorite at the Velvet Club in St. Louis including the headlining spot for their Annual NYE “White Ball” for 2002.

Having built a strong reputation for rocking the party it was only natural that he was tapped to play dates for UK Super-clubs; Ministry of Sound and Cream on their U.S tours. He has appeared at Spundae and United State of Consciousness’ Annual anniversary shows and special events.

Taj’s perseverance as a DJ has led him to International gigs in Paris-France, Istanbul-Turkey, Amsterdam-The Netherlands, Mexico City, and Vancouver BC. He has been chosen by West Coast promoters to perform opening or closing sets for most of the world’s top International talent; Carl Cox, Sasha, Paul Van Dyke, Chemical Brothers, Seb Fontaine, Timo Maas, Hybrid, Westbam, Boy George, Pete Tong, DJ Dan, Stacy Pullen, BT, DJ Sneak, Doc Martin, Sandra Collins, Christopher Lawrence, Todd Terry You get the idea!

In 1999, peers and punters voted Taj as the most versatile DJ of San Francisco. This well deserved honor reflects his love for the music. His well-crafted sets and diverse styles include Funky House, quality Trance, Breakbeat and Progressive House. Speaking of Progressive House, Taj also currently reviews records for North America’s monthly publication of BPM Culture Magazine.

Introduced to music firsthand at the age of thirteen, he played the standup base. Learning to read and write music has naturally led him into producing. He teamed up with long time friend Dave D to form the production team “The Waller St. Boys”. Along with the bay area group ETI, they produced the successful LP “City of Gods” on Oboro Records. The LP sold more than 3,500 copies and was selected for several DJ mixed CDs in just a few months of its release.

Working diligently in the studio Taj aims to prove his talents as a producer to express how he feels about music. As a DJ, his abilities to ride with and steer an energetic dance crowd further demonstrates his goals and motivation to stay real with the music and opening the door that will free peoples – mind, body & soul.
