Knowledge, determination, and faith, are all of these traits, Queens native, ascertained, in order to excel in a male dominated, hustle-minded, fast paced industry. Tatiana Simmons a.k.a DJ Tati was born and raised in queens, new york, on may 27, 1991. Growing up, she had many influences to help drive her into the DJ world. Her influences were DJ Jazzy Jeff, Kool Red Alert and her father who had an immense passion for music. Tati began DJing at the age of 12 consistently, and DJed her first party at age 13.
Her desires to become a professional, well-known DJ were met with numerous obstacles. She received a lot of skepticism from males however; she never let that phase her. Now in her late teenage years, DJ Tati has met more than half of her goals, this includes DJing in Clubs on a weekly basis, a Weekly Radio Show, a "street buzz" and best of all being known as a quality DJ. Tati is still on her grind to the top, and absolutely nothing or no one is in her way.
