For a music lover like Orange County’s DJ Ellay, a passion for track selection started as a kid organizing the songlist on tapedecks to be played in her parents’ car.
Lately, the former classically-trained pianist has been pushing the mixing boundaries with emotive playlists — songs that make one exhalt, cry, love, relax, and remember. As an independent producer of her own dance tracks, Ellay uses her enthusiasm and musical experience to land a myriad of gigs, from corporate events at universities and shopping malls, Sweet 16s, and senior center activities throughout Los Angeles and Orange County.
As a musician, Ellay has performed in immersive concert events throughout the world, including the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia. She merged onto the DJ scene after receiving her Master of Fine Arts in Music Performance, and began creating mixes for videography, parties, and fitness classes.
She gives a modern spin to blending new and old music, keeping the dance floor celebratory and hip.
