“The DJ for folks that love to dance but don’t like nightclubs.” – The Chicago Tribune
A love of independent music culture- Punk , Hip Hop, Reggae, Electronic music, nurtured Major Taylor’s interest in turntablism. Under the tutelage and influence of legends such as Mr.10 Fingers, Jazzy Jeff, Cosmo Baker, and DJ Cash Money, he established himself as a unique and creative talent within the Philly DJ community. Soon after, Taylor would go on to develop a series of popular parties that solidified him as an influential member of a club music scene that spawned Spankrock, Amanda Blank, Low B, Hollertronix, Diplo, and countless others.
Major Taylor has since toured the world- both as a DJ and as the lead guitarist and singer for his dub infused Post-Punk band, The Jai Alai Savant. He currently resides in Chicago, where he composes music for independent films & DJs weekly parties. Past Chicago residencies include the late Bonny’s Bar in Logan Square, Ukie Village’s Bar Deville, and Simone’s in Pilsen- where he still can be found moving crowds on the first Friday of every month.
