Cali DJ Noodles is blowing up, and her tasty mixes are sure to turn up the crowd at this year’s JMBLYA. This 23-year-old has an incredible music taste that makes for the some of the dopest mixes you’ll ever hear live.
Noodles was born in San Francisco, California, as Micah Mahinay. Mahinay took her first steps into the music scene by sneaking into nightclubs as a 16-year-old. She later learned how to mix on vinyl records after repairing her father’s old turntables, who was a DJ in the ‘80s. As a teen, Noodles would spend hours dedicated to mixing.
In 2014, she was approached by R&B singer Kehlani, and the two became close friends. Noodles became Kehlani’s touring DJ, and together the two have hosted parties and events across the US. One of their collaborative efforts “Dethirsterate” was a mix presented by HYPTRAK. Her tracks “SOBA” and “Lo-Mein” showcase her talent of fusing R&B, hip-hop and electronic sounds. Check out her mixes and get on the TSNMI wave as her and Kehani shake up this year’s JMBLYA.
