Teknacolorninja - Bio
The Teknacolorninja is sneaky by nature... flamboyant, colorful in personality, and shines through her eclectic sets. Her flow evolves with the scene, but one thing remains clear - her love of bass and making booties pop.
It wasn't till her move to Wilmington, NC from Florida, that she truly embodied the Teknacolorninja. She became a familiar face as “the downtown lady deejay” in 2009, holding a weekly regular with her female veejay counterpart, Jordan La Liason. This ninja was a stealthy energetic force that radiated the Wilmington scene playing at local venues like The Juggling Gypsy, Parallelogram, Jengo’s Playhouse, Charley Brownz, the East Coast Opera House, the Soapbox Laundro-Lounge, Club Ibiza, and resident at the Odessa Bar & Lounge. She had the opportunity to dj a few beach raves and eventually deejayed her first burn - Mayhem 2009 (Cape's Sphere, NC).
Teknacolorninka, aka Cristina Caudill, plays a colorful spectrum of genres and vibes, from techno, house, electro, indie-pop, funk, hip-hop, transglobal tropical riddims to the new emerging future bass scene, while bringing a sensual feminine element that the male-dominated EDM scene can’t touch.
These days, she is brighter than ever, hitting it hard with the Mischief DC crew, Project Chalk (NC) and lovable Richmond compadres -Party Liberation Front (PLF), with whom she’s attributed many of her dj firsts in the burner community - yielding friendships, inspiration and opportunities to connect with like-minded souls.
Most recently she has played at Burning Man 2012, PEX Summer Fest 2012, Figment NYC 2012 and at venues such as The Delancey (NYC), the Looking Glass (DC), Reggies 42nd Street Tavern (NC).
The Teknacolorninja’s mission (as most ninjas would have) is to move a crowd through a musical conversation and to include all “colors” or walks of life. In her mixes, she pushes the envelope in experimenting with different sounds, cultures and vibes, feeding off her environment and blending them into a seamless journey. A conversationalist at heart, the Teknacolorninja is originally from Hampton, VA and is a bit of a cultural chameleon having lived in Panama, Italy, Puerto Rico, Florida, North Carolina, DC and currently resides in Maryland.
It is through music and her travels that the all-encompassing Teknacolorninja has flourished as a creative creature, in which she hopes to make you quiver, grind and shake about ^_^!
