Noodles (Micah Mahinay) is a 26 year old DJ based out of San Francisco, but now resides in Los Angeles CA. She was first exposed into the night life at age 16. Where she began sneaking into 21+ clubs to see her favorite DJs spin in the hottest clubs.
In 2008 Micah discovered her fathers broken turntables and decided to get them repaired. She learned how to properly mix on vinyl records later transitioning into using Serato. Micah’s father had been DJing since the 80's and made Micah learn to be an open format DJ. She started to practice scratching and mixing for hours after class in high school, then began to record her mixes and would upload them onto the internet.
Noodles brings the vibe of R&B classics, mixed with modern day rap, integrated with an electronic sound. In early 2014 an R&B singer who goes by "Kehlani" had approached Micah and asked her to be her tour DJ. Since then the 2 artists have been touring while hosting many after parties in different cities together.
