Hailing from The City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia’s expansive music scene brought ZíA to where she is now.
Born into a Russian family with a passion for classic rock, blues, and jazz albums, ZíA was often found singing along and digging for her own sounds. Punk, Alternative and Indie put ZíA’s ear to the ground and sparked her passion for music. A few years later she came across the likes of Bassnectar, Excision, and Skrillex, which inspired her to dig deeper into the “bass” community. Skream, Benga, Caspa, Rusko, Joker, Liquid Stranger, Zeds Dead and Ganja White Night soon became household names and, what she did not realize at the time, inspirations.
Known as “tour mom”, working the other side of the industry left her standing in the wings. Craving the rush of being behind the decks herself, she knew the time is now. With female DJ’s breaking boundaries everyday she jumped in feet first and hasn’t looked back.
Playing small and large venues in Philly opened the door to Camp Bisco and an exciting Fall 2018 touring schedule. ZíA’s ultimate goal is to resonate with her fans and move them on the same level music has shaped her.
