Taffi Louis


From his early success introducing Vancouver’s gay nightlife to then-breaking electroclash and nu-disco sounds; to later headlining club nights in San Francisco, Seattle, Victoria, Toronto, and at home in Vancouver; to launching his own events (like ROBOTERIA, THICKSET and TRUCKERDISCO) that bring unique, new audiences together (and also spawn imitators locally and abroad);…TAFFI LOUIS has built a solid reputation for defying simple categorization and reaching further.

Art Of Beatz Radio (100.5FM) calls TAFFI LOUIS “a mastermind… leading the charge”. As a life-long collector of 12" singles, his approach draws as much inspiration from vintage sounds (italo-disco, '80s synthpop) as modern (techno, house, electro). a range of unexpected, unknown, familiar, and forgotten; mixed in a more modern context.

His edits and reworks have won international support from the likes of techno/electro icon The HACKER, IN FLAGRANTI, GEMINI BROTHERS, LOCAL SUICIDE, ITALO BRUTALO, MIDNIGHT MAGIC, & more.

TAFFI LOUIS DJ sets are dynamic responses to the audience and the moment. Not defined by namedropping a handful of sub-genres, each unfolds and tells its own story.
