Hear my new mix: "Summer 2017"

I was recently surprised to find out Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee's "Despacito" (more specifically, the remix with Justin Bieber) is the first Spanish song to reach no. 1 on the US charts since Macarena in 1996. MACARENA! 1996!! I feel like there should have been a couple more hits like this in the twenty year gap, but it seems North America's been slow to adopt the Reggaeton sound that's currently having a huge influence on Top40 radio. 

This mix is meant to capture those warms sounds of summer, with lots of Reggaeton and dancehall vibes, as well as some house and EDM party tracks for poolside listening. 

Enjoy that sunshine!

Toronto's Top 5 Restaurant Wedding Venues

As couples get more creative planning weddings in unique downtown locations, foodies are looking to restaurants to host their big day. Although restaurant receptions sometimes means a limited guest count (which can be a good or bad thing depending on if you're looking to make some tough cuts) what's sacrificed in seating is made up for in impeccable food.  Meals are made to order, and the resident staff know the menu and venue exceptionally well. 

Here are some of my favourite restaurant venues I've had the pleasure to DJ weddings at...

LISTEN to my latest mix: "Spring 2017"

Spring is here! Now, someone tell that to the weather...

Drake's More Life dropped a week ago, and it's permeated this mix as much as it has the Billboard charts. Definitely lots of laid back vibes here , including songs from Bruno Mars, Calvin Harris, Major Lazer and Ed Sheeran.

Enjoy!

VIDEO Q&A: Picking Music & Reading the Crowd

I've started a video series where I answer some questions I get asked a lot when chatting with friends or meeting with clients. In this short clip I talk about getting people to dance.  In a very non-precise explanation: it's all about feeling out the crowd and watching what people are picking up on. Sometime I'll play a song that gets a lot of love and I'll say "okay, more like that". But sometimes I'll play a song and it'll fall flat, and when that happens it's time to change direction.

Thanks for watching!

Got a question for me? Leave a comment and I'll include it in a future video.
