Walking & Falling Mix Series

Taylor Bratches (formerly Talien) seeks to explore and transmit an emotional experience through sound. A lifelong poet and dancer, her relationship to rhythm is intimate and ever-evolving. After spending many years invested in the US and global techno scene as a dancer and raver, she pivoted towards DJing when her mentor, former Smartbar Chicago resident Sassmouth, taught her to spin vinyl. She then teamed with Sassmouth, DJ Kiddo, Ariel Zetina, and others to form Walking and Falling, a mentorship program for female and nonbinary DJs. She taught DJ workshops and curated the W&F mix series for several years, before changing course to focus on her music journalism for Resident Advisor and her own DJ craft. She's since shared a bill with notable artists such as Eris Drew, Octo Octa, Powder, Mike Servito, Mija, Louisahhh, and others. Her sets aim to fuse genres and find hybrid spaces, by blending acid, electro, dubstep, DnB, jungle, broken techno, IDM, bass and more. She aims to move people physically and spiritually, creating a dance floor experience that is both terrestrial and extraterrestrial.
