At five-foot-ten, this stunning brunette has been rocking exclusive parties for the past decade from New York to Miami, Southampton to Shanghai, Paris to Paradise Island. Aside from globetrotting, Omi resides in New York City where she has a weekly residency at Club Space Ibiza and is a fixture at A-list venues including Tao downtown and PhD. Omi was the first female to hold down a residency at the original Marquee club in New York and has held residencies at Miami hotspots including the Fountainbleau hotel, the Clevelander and Cyn Nightclub.
Omi has been instrumental to the success of many corporate functions and brands such as LVMH Moet-Hennessey, Absolut, Chanel, Sephora, Diesel, H&M, Ralph Lauren, Red Bull, Playboy, Gen-Art, YRB and Cosmopolitan magazine. She’s DJed events for buzzed-about celebs such as Kid Rock, Common, Fergie, Katy Perry, Kim Kardashian, countless Housewives, including the late Big Ang, as well hip-hop legends, including Doug E. Fresh, Grandmaster Flash, Kid Capri and Slick Rick. She has even graced the stage of Madison Square Garden opening up for former American Idols and curates the music selection for many retail stores, restaurants and lounges.
Stylistically, her trademark high-energy fusions of progressive house, pop, rock, and hip hop have earned her international respect from top DJs, promoters, and loyal followers. She has made fans in high places—including former U.S. President Bill Clinton, whose people, after hearing her spin at an event for Esquire magazine, asked her to DJ several fund-raisers for the former (and perhaps future) first couple.
Underneath those long lashes, sly smile, and skin-tight designer jeans, Omi sports a neurobiology-philosophy degree from Columbia University where she wrote her senior thesis on the effect of hip-hop and language on social consciousness. She is classically trained in piano and drums and has completed the Institute of Audio Research. Between DJing the most exclusive parties, running Hot+Messy Records, and producing her world-renown “#daydrunk” mixshow- Omi stays quite busy. Much preparation and a touch of magic keep the heads turning, the ears listening, and the bodies moving.
