As co-founder, resident DJ, and one of the creative minds of Blk|Market Membership since its founding in 2006, Taimur Agha has been instrumental in rebuilding New York’s resurgent dance community after its retreat to the underground post-9/11. When Bill Patrick, Nick Ac, and Dennis Rodgers ended ROBOTS, they handed the torch to Taimur and former partner Fahad Haider to become the leading lights the next nightlife era in New York. Blk|market Membership’s guests are a who’s who of the scene’s most important names; Taimur’s personal DJ resume includes multiple appearances at world renown clubs, festivals and parties: fabriclondon, Panorama Bar, Montreal’s STEREO, Trouw (RIP), Club der Visionaere, Miami’s Space Terrace and Electric Pickle, SmartBar Chicago, Moscow’s Arma17 & Gipsy, Romania’s Sunwaves, Francois K’s Deep Space, Detroit’s infamous Need I Say More, Ibiza’s Zoo Project and tINI & the Gang parties, Apollonia’s BPM party, B018 in Beirut, Dubai’s Analog Room, and many more, alongside many of the world’s most important DJs. As head of buying and distribution at Halcyon Records from 2008 until mid-2014, Taimur’s work helped lead the resurgence of the local scene. His community-oriented radio show The Bandwagon ran 116 episodes and brought together labels and promoters from around the city, with showcases for The Bunker, ReSolute, L.I.E.S., Deconstruct Music, Underground Quality, The Corner, Plan B Recordings, Blkmarket headliners, and many others. With eleven years of history and accolades for helping to revive one of the world’s most important dance music scenes, Taimur and Blk|Market Membership hold an esteemed position as architects of New York’s contemporary scene as well as guiding lights for its future. On the strength of these accomplishments, Taimur devoted himself full-time to his own DJ career, his record labels, and to The Selectors, his new event series.
