If NYC's underground Techno community could be likened to a three ringed circus, Taimur Agha, 32, would be Master of Ceremonies. Between juggling his notorious Blk|market Membership events, producing halcyon's popular radio show, and working tirelessly as the head Techno honcho at the city's top vinyl emporium, Taimur somehow holds down an increasingly in-demand DJ schedule. It began for the Pakistani native upon arrival from his childhood home of Abu Dhabi in 1999. A run in with the infamously debaucherous club Twilo supplied all the inspiration he would need. Agha ran purchased turntables, and with some formative mentoring from Craig Richards, he was on his way. He is a key player who has made an indelible mark on NYC's Techno scene; which, that never sleeps, is certainly something.
