Mija Showcases Her Skill With First Solo Production "Secrets" [LISTEN]

Amber Giles, most well known by her stage name Mija, has been making waves in the electronic music scene since her breakout performance with Skrillex in 2014. Today marks a huge success for this spunky female DJ’s career with the release of her first ever original single titled 'Secrets'.

Sampling vocals from indie rockers Tegan and Sara's single 'Boyfriend' Mija starts the song off using bouncy plucks throughout the beat to keep the melody going, transitioning into a funky drum and bass drop. Creating “Secrets” has enabled Mija to show her unique style which fluidly transcends genre barriers. From the looks of the comments all over social media, her fans are already loving it.

Mija's journey in electronic dance music began at the tender age of 17 and has been a rollercoaster ever since. Mija first got her start as a rave promoter, and after living with several DJs, she eventually tried her hand performing herself. With early gigs in Phoenix playing events, weddings, and parties Mija was used to the hustle before she linked up with Skrillex in 2014. The partnership proved fruitful for Mija, leading her to opportunities to perform at some of the biggest music festivals in the United States including Bonnaroo, Burning Man, and TomorrowWorld. Since then, Mija has taken the term “girl power” to a whole new level. She feels that she is equal to her peers in the male0dominated EDM scene and is excited to see this stigma slowly changing. Mija has had collaborations with some of the most popular names in EDM music, including Ghastly, Diplo, DJ Snake, and Claude VonStroke. She likes to describe her sound with the slogan “fk a genre” because this producer & DJ isn't limited to any one category of music. In the past 3 years, Mija has mostly focused on remixes and collabs, so the release of "Secrets" is a significant milestone for the young artist's career.

Mija's released the 'Secrets' as a free download, so don't forget to grab it for keeps!
