Obi Tawil aka Damaged Goods has developed a career out of “stretching the borders of musical sanity”. From a Downtown 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, Steve Angello, Skrillex, Borgore, Laidback Luke, Steve Aoki, Afrojack, Boys Noize & more. Adding Producer to his repertoire, in 2011 he released “Devastating” with co-producer Sydney Blu and went onto release their second single together, “Giving it Up,“ which took off on Beatport’s Top 10 Progressive charts. Obi's musical style changed and has had recent releases on Fool's Gold, Mad Decent, and has a forthcoming release coming out on one of Spinnin's top sub-labels, “Oxygen.” 2017 is off to a great start securing residencies at LIV, E11EVEN, Hyde Beach (Miami) and Create (LA). Expect more releases and key shows to come throughout the year in what seems to be stacking up as Damaged Goods' breakout year.
