This year at SXSW our unofficial showcase NAKID HOUSE x BAD CLVB is going to be our best yet. One of the reasons for that is our lineup and topping out the list of amazing artists this year is MIJA who’s is going b2b with one of her best friends and fellow artists GG MAGREE! Both artists have in recent years made huge marks on the music industry and as female artists in a male dominated industry. Mija got her start back in 2014 as a promotor, booking and playing with Skrillex, from their her talent was obvious and Skrillex quickly took her under his wing on OWLSA records. In 2015 MIJA started ‘Fk A Genre’, a tour & promotion brand that programs diverse genres of music into a single show. “It (Fk A Genre) gave artists free range to do whatever they wanted to do, and not what their normal fan base expected.”
Mija describes her musical style as “fk a genre“, not liking to be categorised. Her manager is Jeffrey O’Neill of Blood Company and her agents are Paradigm Talent Agency. Giles feels that she has been the equal of her male peers and that the male domination of the EDM scene is slowly changing; she says “I don’t think about it often — only when asked in interviews“.
In 2016 Giles launched Made By Mija, a fashion brand based out of Los Angeles, where she is the primary designer. It features both men’s and women’s lines, as well as shoes and accessories.
On February 26, 2020, Mija released her debut full-length album, Desert Trash, via Never B Alone / Create Music Group, with Mija’s vocals, songwriting, guitar, piano and production.
