When asked about what to consider when hiring a DJ for your wedding, here's the advice I offer...
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...
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.
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.
As another year winds down it's time to look back on the songs we heard a lot of -- and not enough of-- in 2016.
This is a mix of those radio earworms that became songs of the year, as well as a few overlooked tracks I really liked.
See you in 2017!
Check out this mini doc about yours truly produced by the very talented THE iDENTiTY CRiSiS! Shot at "Project Rewind" at Revival Bar, The Golden Tap Awards at Beerbistro, and around my neighbourhood in Liberty Village, I answered a few questions about my own path to DJing and why I love what I do.
Watch the video below, and check out more of THE iDC's work here.
In August I was a part of an epic party at Revival Bar on College St in Toronto. The night's called "Project Rewind" and the theme is simple: featuring classic hip-hop from the 90s and early 2000s, some of my favourite music.
I didn't know much about the lineup when I signed on but in the weeks leading up to the party I was told the headliners would be not only Starting From Scratch, but also DJ Baby Yu! Both are long time legends in the scene and are really well respected DJs.
