Aside from being one of the newest additions to the Carnival Cruise Line DJ roster and being the first lady guest mixer on Tampa Bay’s 95.7 the Beat, DJ Tayy has taken the DJing scene by storm since her humble beginnings! Not only has she spun at popular malls, such as Southland Mall (Miami, FL), Florida Mall (Orlando, FL), Brandon Town Center (Brandon, FL) and International Mall (Tampa, FL), Tayy has also spun at Fortune 500 companies and restaurants such as Macy’s, Bahama Breeze, Bebe, PINK by Victoria Secret, PUMA and Old Navy.
Born in Queens, New York and raised in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands, DJ Tayy learned to read, write music and play several instruments at a very young age. At the age of 16, while attending Miami Southridge Senior High School, Tayy picked up DJing as a hobby just mixing music for friends at house parties and graduations. After she graduated Highschool, she moved to Tampa to attend the University of South Florida where she purchased her first pair of turntables in order to learn the art form of mixing and scratching. Tayy felt it was important to learn the root of djing and that is exactly what she did. It was very difficult for her to be taken serious as a female DJ while in college, but once she broke into the scene nothing could stop her from plummeting to the top.
In 2015, Tayy linked up with the world famous Scratch Music Group where she now serves as a Scratch Events DJ and in 2016 she was added to the Carnival Cruise Line DJ roster where she was promoted to a Pro DJ. It is plain to see that DJ Tayy has quickly become one of central Florida’s most sought-after record spinners.
