After earning a Bachelor's degree for English & Screenwriting at Loyola Marymount University, Elissa spent her early professional years managing a boutique DJ agency based in NYC, which inspired her to co-found Green Line Talent. In the years since, Elissa has overseen thousands of events, and DJed for clients including O.P.I., The Harlem Globetrotters, Benjamin Moore, and The New York Stock Exchange. She was recently named one of the industry's leading private event DJs by Billboard Magazine.
Elissa has built her reputation blending the familiar with the obscure, maintaining an energetic indie electronic pulse throughout. Her sets aim to showcase something familiar, be it a beat or a lyric, along with something with which it may not be commonly paired, so you can dance guilt-free to your favorite Kylie Minogue hook, or even break a sweat to some nostalgic grunge. (Think The Smashing Pumpkins over Britney, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs with Daft Punk, or vintage LL over new Modeselektor). All of this is woven with the newest and catchiest remixes and original tracks from the world of underground electronica.
Elissa currently splits her time between Brooklyn and Chicago, and considers herself the Tiger Mom of the GLT DJs (and her black brussels griffon puppy, PJ Harvey).
DJ Elissa was fantastic! We knew we wanted to avoid the overbearing DJ that played all the stereotypical tracks, and Elissa delivered on that and then some. From the very first conversation, she was totally on top of things and easy to work with. She took the time to understand our music tastes, understand our crowd, and understand the vibe we wanted. The day and night of, she was subtle and professional, kept everything moving along, and played an unbelievable mix that perfectly represented everything we talked about. It's been 2 months since the party and we still get comments from our friends and colleagues about how great the music was! Elissa made our night even more incredible than we had hoped!
