Tajmahal began his music career in the Factory club 1992, Lyon, and as co-manager of the Kobdo, one of the first Techno clubs in Lyon. In 1995, he became a label DJ with the legendary TRANSPACT, and as co-writer with ASIA 2001. This collaboration produced 4 albums, of which Tajmahal contributed to 3 or 4 tracks on each. Taj is becoming better known for his long Ambient Uptempo Sets. At Soulclipse in Turkey, Taj presented a completely new downtempo live act. In 2006 He became label manager for ELECTRIK DREAM.
Nowadays Tajmahal splits his time in between Chill out and Progressiv Morning Trance projects and also some More Electro/Tech/ Trance projects. His first release “Butterfly Ritual” on Electrik Dream was on his compilation Cosmik Chill – Red March 2006. In 2007 he released « Star Circus », his first album for Electrik Dream.
This year he released with his partner Kurtz Mindfields a tribute album to the Berlin school period for all the analogic synth lovers named Analogic Touch – From Berlin school to Electronica Ambient.
Currently, he is Working on a chill out Ethnik project UASCA in collaboration with Dj fluxo (Quest4goa-Portugal).
Tajmahal’s style of composition can be seens as a bridge between trance and downtempo rythms. His style is fluid and deep in meaning: his music tells the story of his feelings. When dj-ing, he combines his spotless technical skills with a broad, eclectic musical knowledge and an immense creativity: he is famous for telling a story and taking the crowds every step of the way towards enlightment. This path can encompass different music styles – progressiv, full on, psychedelic trance – within the same DJ set: Taj knowns no boundaries in between styles and tempos.
