The Mix Of Many Sounds
by Nick Mangiapane
of you in
Denver have heard the name DJ Tatiana. Many of you
have danced to her remixes on the dance floor. What you may not
know is her story. She has a rich background in music and is
very well traveled amongst many great cities worldwide. As a DJ,
she pulls in many different styles and even adds some of her
own. She even is an amazing party promoter and is starting a
sexy new party here in town called
PornStar 2nd Fridays at Bar
Standard. DJ Tatiana is definitely a great asset to the local
Where are you from?
I am from Madrid, Spain.
How did you get your start as a DJ?
Since I was very small, I was very fond of music. Growing up, I
was exposed to it through the family business (restaurants and
bars with live music shows) and very involved as a performer.
Later, when I moved to the US, it was paramount to keep sharing
music with the world, so I did via the turntables. It has been
ten years and I couldn't be happier.
What is your musical style as a DJ?
My format is very diverse. I do everything from tribal house to
top 40s remixes to hip hop and Latin music. I would say my style
is eclectic with international flavor.
You are also a party promoter. How did you get involved
I travel often. In doing so, I get to experience fun events. I
love this city and its community, so I like to bring fresh party
ideas from abroad, mix them with some of my own, adapt them to
our rainbow people here and 'voila' we have the DjTatiana
When and where do you spin around town?
When in Denver, usually I spin one Saturday a month at The
Church, one Friday a month at Vinyl, some First Fridays at
Tracks, summers on the rooftop for
Climax Sundays at Vinyl and
PornStar 2nd Fridays at Bar Standard. I also play nationwide on a monthly
basis. Coming up next, the
White Party in Miami at the end of
November. You should join me.
What music/artists are currently playing on your iPod?
Wow! So many! I would not even know where to begin. Let's see...
depending on the occasion, I enjoy a variety of music from a
good Opera or Jazz at home over some good wine and excellent
company to some flavorful Don Omar to hard delicious beats by
Yolanda Be Cool.
Do you have any DJ role-models?
I admire Bob Sinclair. I also enjoy Magan, Hinojosa and Zambrano,
Ralphi Rosario, Skrillex, Swedish House Mafia, Sak Noel and
What has been your most epic DJ experience?
I try to have one of those every weekend (laugh), but if I had
to pick a couple, I would say, playing a summer in Ibiza,
Denver PrideFest party at
Vinyls rooftop for CLiMAX, a Halloween at The
church and a couple of Las Vegas and Miami events come to mind.
