Highlighting LOUNGE & CORPORATE Mixes

Good Morning!

So this morning I have been going through a few of my favorite older more vibey mixes. I’m talking some of this chill/relaxing mixes perfect for lounges and corporate events! I made these mixes such a long time ago that I forgot about some of the music I used!! Actually I forgot pretty much all of the music and I was a bit more of a new DJ, BUT I think they are pretty cool. Thought I would highlight a few for you!

Corporate Event Mixes




“You” (one of my all time favs, this is one is has great remixes from some of the best producer/DJs, perfect for corporate event , lounge, restaurant)

“Electric Mood” (super vibey and upbeat lounge mix , very quick mixing)

LIVE MIX (Laid back mix used for corporate event in 2017, mid-tempo & groovy)

Cool Christmas (Curated Christmas Playlist)

Merry Christmas Everyone! I hope you are all enjoying your time with loved ones. While are you enjoying your time and feeling the Christmas spirit, here is an eclectic Christmas playlist you can play while enjoying all of the Christmas festivities.

My family loves music, and whenever I’m home for the holidays we like to try have great music playing the background. But sometimes it’s hard to find the right album, playlist or artist to listen to. Most Christmas playlists on Spotify are either full the classic Christmas songs you’ve heard your whole life Like “Jingle Bells” and “Deck the Halls” or full of the typical pop Christmas songs like Mariah Carey’s “All I want For Christmas is You” or “Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays” by NSync. While the classic songs and Pop songs are all great! I wanted to curate a Christmas playlist that has some of the classics, some of the pop, and tons of great Christmas songs you’ve maybe never heard. This is a mid to up-tempo playlist, that I believe has an cool, eclectic, nostalgic Christmas sound.


I hope you like!


Happy Holidays!

Best of 2018 (Top 40 Mix) Listen Now!

My music loving friends and I have been debating on what the best songs were this year. Some have been saying this year has been bit of a weak unmemorable year when it comes to hit songs, and to be honest, I didn’t think there would be much to work with when I started putting together this mix. I almost didn’t do it! I didn’t want to force anything, and come up with a weak basic bland mix.

However as I went through all of the hot music that dropped this year, I quickly realized, ummm, that there was TONS of amazing music that came out this year. What were we even debating on!?!?

This mix ended up being so much fun to make. I am not just saying that in this blog to seem all positive. This mix just came together so seamlessly (literally the opposite of forced) and was fun to make because I felt the music was great! I put in some Ariana, Travis Scott, Nicki, Ella Mai, and Cardi!?! Um all not to mention freaking Beyonce & Jay Z with ApeShit!

This was a dope year in music! A bit harder, more urban, and more interesting.

Check out this 50 min mix reminiscing on all the jams this past year. Hope you enjoy!

Wedding in Sayulita Mexico!

Early March I had the amazing opportunity to DJ a wedding in the stunning city of Sayulita Mexico.  Keith and Akilah came across a few mixes/playlists I had posted over a year ago. They contacted me, met me and attended to a gig of mine at the Phoenix in LA, then they hired be to DJ  their special day, a destination wedding and freaking Mexico!  Ofcourse, I was ecstatic, excited, humbled, and nervous at the same as this was my first destination wedding, and first time out of the country! 

Here, I wanted to share a bit on absolutely beautiful and wedding, and my trip over all! 

First check out this sunset! 🌅 😍

Destination Wedding DJ

NO FILTER

 

I told the wedding coordinator I didn't think I had ever seen any sunset like THAT! And Ive DJed over 300 weddings! He was actually shocked! 😂 I guess sunsets that THAT were something he is very used to coordinating in Sayulita.  

One of the reason why Keith and Akilah hired me, was our shared taste in music.  As you probably know I absolutely love cool, stylish and melodic house music.  Keith wanted me to create a cool deep house tropical sounding but funky playlist for the end of cocktail hour and through dinner! And, I HAD A BLAST making this!! Check out the playlist below :) 

This dinner playlist ended up being one of my favorites Ive made and it actually kinda became the playlist of the trip! I listened to on the plane there, while I would get ready in the bungulow (yes I stayed in a bungalow 😳), it would play in the background as me and my buddy would chat and have a drink late before we would call it night! 

BTW this is my friend that came with me, he made it a lil mini vacation! 

Destination Wedding DJ

Anyway this playlist I was so much fun to make, and really ended up being a playlist I go back to when I wanna vibe out! 

The wedding was visually absolutely incredible! The venue was called Villa Del Oso, which was an estate about half a mile outside the downtown area of Sayulita.  The estate was like legit beautiful, it kinda sat right by cliff over looking a clean and almost private beach & ocean! 

Below I have a pic and video of really how beautiful this was! 

Destination Wedding DJ

Yes! Stunning Right! 

I know, I am going on and on about how beautiful this place was because well, it WAS! But,  haven't talked too much about the actual reception and dance party! So Keith and Akilah hired me to DJ to 1 am, which ended being about a 3 hour dance set! And.... I mean it went off! 

The newlyweds had about 60 - 70 of their friends and family at the wedding, so it was on the smaller side when it comes to wedding receptions, but this group wanted to party! And the peeps that wanted to party & dance the most, were Keith and Akilah! Which for a Wedding DJ is always the best! 

I didn't get much content during the dancing because I was DJing, so it was hard to take the time to get pics. BUT, I get this pic of the groom gettin down in the middle of dance circle! 

Destination Wedding Dj

Another reason why this couple hired me was because they loved that I enjoyed playing old school (late 90s early 00s) rnb and hiphop! If you know me as DJ you would know that it my absolute favorite to play at bars and clubs.  I LOVE nostalgia, and Keith and Akilah wanted me to really go IN!!! 

I played ALL of the jams!

The nighted ended with the guests screaming along to "Party In the USA" by Miley Cyrus! Which is one of the best wedding last songs BTW! 

This wedding was simply one of my favorites and I am so thankful to have gotten to experience it.  

Here's a pic of me and the couple! 

Destination Wedding DJ

And here's just a pic of me! 😌

Destination Wedding DJ

So there it is!! This pretty much sums up the wedding I Died in Sayulita Mexico! It definitely the best work/trip I have ever taken! And really over the best TRIP I have ever taken! Now, Ive officially caught the travel bug and am ready DJ more destination weddings! 

A few more pics from the trip below.
