It's that time again!

Each year I put out an hour-long mix of the music from the year that was -- including tracks that got played a whole lot, and ones I think might've been overlooked.

As with every year, there was so much music to work with. This year's mix includes Major Lazer, Calvin Harris, Post Malone, Drake, Future, Jay Z and Kendrick Lamar to name a few...

The "Yorkville Village Arts Festival" Opening Gala

The "Yorkville Village Arts Festival" Opening Gala

I've got a lot of eclectic songs and remixes that I don't get the chance to play a lot. These are tracks that are maybe just a little too laid back to get a dance party started, or are by up-and-coming artists that haven't reached mainstream success yet. So when I was asked to DJ the opening gala of the Yorkville Village Arts Festival, I knew it'd be the perfect opportunity to dust of some of these artsier selections.

Now in its fourth year, the festival is a joint initiative between First Capital Realty and the Faculty of Art at OCAD University. This cultural event showcases over 60 original contemporary art pieces created by 28 OCAD students and recent graduates. 

The gala was hosted by iHeartRadio's Andrea Collins, and featured live painting, a virtual reality art experience and opportunity to chat with the artists themselves.

Some of the more off-beat songs I mixed in were:

  • Jessie Ware - Alone (Toddla T Remix)
  • Sade - Nothing Can Come Between Us (Pomo Remix)
  • Jared Jackson - Loyal to the Dancefloor
  • Solange - Cranes in the Sky (Kaytranada Remix)
  • Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band - Love Like This

The pop up gallery is open to the public November 3rd to 8th. More info here: http://yorkvillevillage.com/event/yorkville-village-arts-festival

Matt & Tasha's Prince Edward County Wedding

Matt and Tasha are the life of the party. I'd first met them while I was DJing another wedding, where they were firmly anchored on the dancefloor all night. They were wild, funny, and always looked like they were having the time of their lives. When they asked me to DJ their wedding I knew it would be an epic night!

The wedding took place at Fields on West Lake, August 2016. A large barn set in the middle of a lush sprawling property, this venue has become one of Prince Edward County's most popular spots for weddings over the past several years. PEC is quickly losing its "hidden gem" status (if it hasn't already) with more and more city slickers making the 2 hour drive east of Toronto to discover fantastic restaurants, wineries and picturesque settings ideal for weddings.  

I shared DJ duties with good friend and turntablist extraordinaire DJ Timfamous, who was also a groomsmen in the wedding party. We took turns trading off sets, starting off with some Motown, Top40 and classic rock hits then moving into some hip-hop throwbacks and dancehall later in the night. 

Here's some sweet feedback the couple gave after the night ended:

"Rich was amazing to work with! The music was amazing and the dance floor was packed the whole night. I highly recommend DJ Rich Sweet to anyone who wants a great dance party inclusive of all ages. If I could give more than 5 stars I would!"

Congratulations again Matt & Tasha!
