New York City born Bonnie Beats is a modern day renaissance woman (scientist, musical chameleon, and fashionista). The tech nerd turned – tastemaker – turned – super talent, in just a few short years is one of Miami’s rising stars.
Raised on the sounds of Caribbean soul, Latin Jazz, and Motown, this young and ambitious DJ/Producer is all about taking you to that “feel good place.” A craftsman whose ambivalent to the term “commercial,” draws her inspiration from the first sightings of House including French House, Deep House and Jack, straight to earlier dance influences such as old funk, and early dubs. All of course, tying into a night of dance reminiscent to the early undergrounds sounds of New York disco-style clubs.
Tagged by The New Times as a “local powerhouse” she has shared nights with artists of all walks such as Talib Kweli, The Martinez Brothers, Alunageorge, Icona Pop, Jamie XX and more.
Her impeccable sense of style only adds to her audacious flare which is why companies such as VICE Magazine, Mercedes Benz, Redbull, and Lexus to name a few, all hail her as their “go to“ DJ for private Miami events and productions.
In 2010 Bonnie began her music and fashion blog, Behind Color Bars to continue to educate her local community and abroad about all things cutting edge. It was this consistent message that gained Bonnie the street cred reserved for only those who create movements. Recognition of her unique style got her an invitation join the independent cast and crew of Wynwood Radio and Klangbox where she was asked to pilot her own shows, leading to a feature on Virgin Mobile Radio.
In the past, Bonnie Beats has held residencies at renowned venues such as The Vagabond, Grand Central, and W Hotels among others, and can currently be found throughout Miami playing at spots such as Perez Art Museum, Soho Beach House, The Four Seasons, The Edition and more.
Look out for her original work in 2018.
