A girl on the decks is sexy, but a girl who consistently rocks the party: that's hot. Don't be fooled by DJ Omi’s signature Swarvorski crystal headphones--New York’s own “Mashup Queen” never fails to impress. At five-foot-ten, this stunning brunette has secured residencies at NYC and Miami’s top clubs like Marquee, Tavern, Touch, Southhampton hotspot Dune, Pangaea (@ the Hard Rock, Seminole), Rokbar, Club50 and Plunge (@ the Gansevoort). She frequently spins in the Caribbean Islands, Southeast Asia and up & down the east coast. After a lifetime in the big apple, Omi has recently transplanted to Miami which she now considers home base when she is not flying back to NYC for an event or trotting the globe.
Stylistically, her trademark high-energy fusions of hip-hop, pop, rock, disco and electro house have earned her respect internationally from top DJs, promoters, and loyal followers. She has made fans in high places—including former U.S. President Bill Clinton, whose people, after hearing her spin at Esquire's 75th Anniversary Party, asked her to DJ several fund-raisers including the Millennium Network Event co-hosted by Wyclef Jean at the Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC.
Omi has been instrumental to the success of many corporate functions and brands such as LVMH Moet-Hennessey, Absolut, Chanel, Sephora, Diesel, H&M, Ralph Lauren, Red Bull, Playboy, Gen-Art, YRB and Cosmopolitan magazine. She’s DJed alongside buzzed-about celebs, like Kid Rock, Common, Fergie, Katy Perry, Kim Kardashian and Martha Stewart, as well hip-hop legends, including Doug E. Fresh, Grandmaster Flash, Kid Capri and Slick Rick. She has even graced the stage of Madison Square Garden opening up for the American Idols.
Underneath those long lashes, sly smile, and skin-tight designer jeans, Omi sports a neurobiology-philosophy degree from Columbia University where she wrote her senior thesis on the effect of hip-hop and language on social consciousness. She is classically trained in piano and drums and has completed the Institute of Audio Research. When not behind the decks, Omi stays busy working in the studio producing her world-renown “Mashup Queen” mix cds and mash ups, and consulting for retail stores, restaurants and lounges. Much preparation and a touch of magic keep the heads turning, the ears listening, and the bodies moving—Omi loves what she does and it comes through.
