Obi Tawil aka Damaged Goods has developed a career out of “stretching the borders of musical sanity”. Also one half of the production duo Caligula, he is a fixture in Miami Nightlife and transcends genres seamlessly the way he does scenes. From a down town dance spot, mega south beach club or an underground speakeasy there isn’t a venue Damaged Goods hasn’t stamped with his signature high energy and forever evolving style.
In 2008 Obi was resident DJ to an eclectic team of misfits running the local Miami Indie Scene with promotional conglomerate, OVERTHROW. The buzz on their killer weekly party “Black Sunday” raised tons of eyebrows with their somewhat untraditional party themes. Stop motion photography captured weekly cinematic “murders” that immortalized the group’s social profile and gave Obi a break into a niche group of local nightlife celebrity.
Residencies at Mansion, Louis, Mokai, Set and International Sponsorship from Smirnoff Vodka soon followed and so did the opportunity to play alongside heavyweights Deadmau5, M.I.A, Steve Angello, Laidback Luke, Steve Aoki, Afrojack, Switch, The Rapture, The Juan Mclean, Jesse Rose, Danny Daze, The Bloody Beetroots, and Boys Noize.
Adding Producer to his repertoire in 2011 he released “Devastating” with co-producer Sydney Blu and went onto release their second single together called, “Giving it Up “ which took off on Beatport’s Top 10 Progressive charts. Some of his most notable remixes in 2012 had him at the top of HypeM’s charts with Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know” and “Glad You Came” co-produced with fellow Miamian, Christian Falero. Expect more releases into 2013 on Funk Farm and Dim Mak in what seems to be stacking up as Damaged Good’s break out year.
