Daniyah, aka Miss Angel of Boy Meets Girl, grew up in Vancouver, BC after moving to Canada from Saudi Arabia when she was 5. Growing up watching Pop Up Video and listening to Much Dance mixes and Essential Selection hosted by Pete Tong on BBC Radio 1, she longed to listen to more electronic music but she was too sheltered to know where and how to find them. 

Fast forward to 2006 when her first visit to an after-hours club changed her entire view of the EDM scene in Vancouver. The next few years were spent making her way through bars and clubs, rubbing shoulders with the right people, and eventually becoming a familiar face at Hollywood Fridays at Lotus, Believe at Red Room and, of course, Vancouvers top after-hours: Gorg-O-Mish. 

It was fairly common to see her standing in the DJ booth watching her favourite DJ's work their magic on the equipment and being in awe at their talent. Already learning the ropes of a promoter, it was only natural for her to try her hand at DJ'ing. With the encouragement and support of some her favourite local DJ's like Jay Tripwire, Rhiannon, Sage, Sheps, and TJ Hooker, an attempt that started out as clumsy and awkward soon became her own form of art as she found a knack at letting music express her feelings and allowing her stories to come forth from the tracks that she played. Through sheer pride and discipline, she carefully honed her style to best suit her personality: a mix of contradicting characteristics that always kept everyone on their toes. After meeting Mr. Cox of Boy Meets Girl, and with her experience in Marketing, Miss Angel got to work on developing the Boy Meets Girl name into a brand. Taking inspiration from the Boy Meets Girl parties hosted by TIGHT Entertainment, the Boy Meets Girl name became a rapid success amongst their peers and friends.

Currently residing as a DJ with LuvnGrace Entertainment and working on projects with other local artists, including Blackberry Wood and international superstar Tonye Aganaba, Miss Angel is no slacker as she gears up for bigger and better ways to express her style and spread the Boy Meets Girl brand. 

Known for playing long sets with her heart and soul poured into every mix, Miss Angel takes you on a journey of her experience; From the pain of heartbreak in her Affected mix to the blinding epiphany of her Evolution mix, it's no secret that Miss Angel knows how to weave in and out of reality with her carefully chosen tracks. Stay tuned for this seemingly quiet yet quirky girl coming to a dance floor near you!
