Born in Byron Bay and raised around northern NSW, Ayisha Mia aKa Ish has always had a love for music. From a young age she acquainted herself with such instruments as piano, guitar, violin, flute, and drums. Ish's love for music developed into a passion for electronic music after being introduced to psytrance and outdoor parties in the luscious landscapes of northern NSW and southern QLD.
After years of being surrounded by mates that mixed and produced tunes came her natural inspiration to get involved, and thus came the thrill of collecting hours of diverse psytrance and a passion for music and mixing.
Representing 3rd Eye Productions since 2007, Ish migrated a few years ago to Melbourne expanding her horizons and sounds. Having recently also been signed to Kinematic Records, keeping the authentic northern NSW flavours in her sound, whilst expanding far beyond, this pocket rocket of a woman is sure to deliver the delicate chunk, with a delicious array of solid basslines, funky melodies and crisp percussion. Although predominantly psytrance, over the years Ish has broadened her sound and now plays sets that can span many genres, depending on the atmosphere.
So far Ish has graced such respected and thumping stages as Exodus, Rainbow Serpent Festival, Cairns Winter Solstice, Splendour in the Grass, Bushweek, Tribeadelic, Tree of Life (Aus Launch) and Colour of Sound events, to name just a few.
Each set is different, so keep your eyes peeled for DJ Ish and keep your ears to the ground for her soon to be unleashed original production as Delicate Chunk.
