Unpredictable & unapologetic, YISSEL (AKA the DJ Formerly Known As YSL) is disrupting the music scene. With an extensive knowledge and deep appreciation of music, she understands how to embrace different genres (both vintage and modern) to seamlessly blend house, hip-hop, R&B, or any genre she desires, in any given set. Her extraordinary ability to be a surprising sound selector and music risk taker makes her a sought-after presence in both the daylife & nightlife scene and paved the way to her global recognition.
From Marrakech to the Magic City, YISSEL has graced the turntables at the most exclusive venues and luxurious events while holding residencies worldwide at Faena & Soho House. When not jet-setting, you can find her spinning at her hometown hotspots, poolside at Hyde Beach, during Heat games inside the Kaseya Arena or late-night at E11even Miami.
With a range in resume as diverse as her DJ sets, she brings a mix of fashion & fun to all A-list affairs including Film Festivals, Fashion Week and Formula 1 internationally. Locally she has been famed “Miami’s DJ Darling” and the most sought after for every grand opening, product launch & luxury event. With over a decade of industry experience, her corporate collaborations include a lengthy list of national and global brands such as Versace, Ferrari, and Moet Chandon who turn to her to soundtrack special events throughout the year. Outside the DJ booth, she has secured partnerships that range from Bentley to Stella as a social & style influencer.
Don’t underestimate the talent packed into this fierce five-foot package, who has performed alongside some of the biggest names in music & before massive audiences in festivals and large-scale events across the world. Her style, often described as “bridging the gap between commercial and cool”, achieves what very few DJs can, the talent to please both the mainstream and the underground crowds. In a saturated world of Electronic Dance Music, YISSEL is elevating the scene, curating music based on style not trends and pioneering the new evolution of EDM she calls Eclectic Dance Music.
