Opera with My Favorite Sin presents Mija Motel and Special Psycho Guest in Atlanta
Friday, October 27th, 2017 at Opera Atlanta
Amber Giles (born 30 May 1992), known professionally as Mija, is an American electronic music producer, DJ, and promoter, originally from Phoenix, Arizona, who came to attention in 2014 after she played with Skrillex. She is known for playing genre-crossing sets.
Giles was born in Phoenix, Arizona, where she was in a choir that toured France and Canada. She gave up singing as her family could not afford it, and she became a rave promoter aged 17: she was a fan of drum and bass and happy hardcore, including DJ Hixxy. She has often dyed her hair since becoming a DJ, including pink, blonde, and blue, but most often her 'signature disheveled sea foam green hair'. She is into skateboarding.
As a promoter she booked Skrillex before he came to mainstream attention. She lived with several DJs when she was 18, and after briefly studying fashion she dropped out and started DJing full time in Phoenix in 2012 aged 19. Initially she played events such as weddings, and later the Sheraton Hotel and parties in Downtown Phoenix. She moved away from rave and played more disco house, collaborating with Eric Daily on Deux Yeux, a French house and nu-disco duo. She got the name 'Mija' (Spanish slang for 'my daughter') as a nickname from her then-boyfriend. Billboard listed her among '15 Female DJs You Need to Know Now' in October 2015. Giles describes her musical style as 'fk a genre', not liking to be categorised. Her manager is Jeffrey O'Neill of Blood Company and her agents are Paradigm Talent Agency. Giles feels that she has been the equal of her male peers and that the male domination of the EDM scene is slowly changing; she says 'I don't think about it often -- only when asked in interviews'.
