DJ Miia Magia
“Have you heard that track? It sounds like you”, is not something that one hears unless they have their own distinctive style. Miia Magia has that and more.
Back in 2004 Miia started to organize club events and selected music in Helsinki. Her goal was just simply to create an event with her favourite music and to make people dance. In her late teens she was very inspired of London's returning 60's mod culture, 70's glamrock and also the 90's Indie rock and Britpop. These were the genres she was playing at Club Semifinal (downstairs venue of Tavastia, Helsinki's most legendary rock club). Five years of recidency gave her also a chance to manage a big bunch of eclectic bookings with local up and coming artists such as Lapko, Mariska, Accu, Rudi Rok and Villa Nah.
Soon after britpop and indie rock had to give some space for more electronic tunes as Miia got her first booking to play at DTM, Scandinavia’s biggest gay club at the time. There she stepped up to become the resident DJ and Miia Magia was born. Her ten years long cooperation with the Helsinki Gay-scene was crowned with a gig in the leading truck at the Helsinki Pride parade, where her music ordered 30 000 partygoers.
Miia also continued organizing her own events. “Sound of Magic”-night at mbar was up and running for three years with her favourite local house DJs. She also gained resident status in Eau de Pussy Club (an essential player in the Finnish club scene since 1998) and was invited to be part of Bassoradio, one of Finland's national stations. There she was hosting the "Our House" show for one year period and playing her definition of authentic Deep House. Alongside her own events Miia has performed in most major cities of Finland, and also internationally in Tallinn, Madrid, and Valencia.
Miia's taste of music has travelled a long way to find it's way to this day's deeper House and Techno tunes. Since moving to Stockholm 2016 she's been focusing to learn more about music production and been invited to dj at Stockholm's top notch venues such as Laika, F12, Kulturgården and Slakthuset.
