DJ Miia MagiaFacebook
“Have you heard that song? It sounds like you”, is not something that one hears unless they have their own distinctive style. DJ Miia Magia has that and more.
Miia discovered that she had another talent. It was serendipity when she stood in front of those decks in DTM, Scandinavia’s biggest gay club, and stepped up to become the resident DJ from 2010 to 2012. Her unique soundscapes continue to push DJ culture in new and attention grabbing directions. She has also been organising and promoting club nights since 2004.
Miia has been passionate about music since she was 8 years old. She was inspired by Gwen Stefani and Shirley Manson, especially the strong presence that they brought to their performances. Miia is also well used to performing. As a successful teenage gymnast she was renowned for her dazzling displays with the ribbon, which captivated audiences and competitors alike. The same passion, determination and creative spirit have since thrust her to the forefront of the Finnish DJ culture. Since starting her career in Semifinal, the downstairs venue of Tavastia, Helsinki's legendary rock club, she has become associated with top venues including DTM, Loop, Jenny Woo and mbar, where her “Sound of Magic” night is one of the most popular in the city. She has also been part of the Helsinki Pride Festival. Her distinctive style ensures that, over the course of one set you will be taken on a fascinating journey. Along the way you could hear disco and deeper house and ripples of pop and indie, too. Whenever or wherever you hear Miia Magia, you will find yourself somewhere in the music and enjoying the atmosphere.
