On August 26th, 2017 I DJed Josh and Christine's wedding at Old Canyon Ranch in Agoura Hills! It was one of my favorite weddings to date! Josh and Christine were very much into house music so throughout the night they directed me stick with mostly EDM/"Festival Music". Some super cool sounding stuff! I had never DJed a wedding like this, where I was able to get so deep into this genre (sent over a ton of amazing songs via spotify) -- so while it was a blast getting to mix "Festival Music" during a dance set for over 200 guests, being the DJ for this wedding it was also great musical learning experience for me!
In this post, I wanted to share a bit of the music I played!
Cocktail Hour Playlist
Some classics in this playlist, Cocktail hour had a nice upbeat feel!
Couple suggested I keep dinner more of a deephouse sexy feel, tons of Kaskade!!
Snippet of Dance Set
Listen to a clip of my dance set live!! All EDM!! Sorry if Im on the mic at all! It was Live!! :)
Like I mentioned earlier, this wedding was one of my all-time favorites!! Josh and Christine had such great taste in music, and while they did give me a ton of direction on music to play for the night, it was some of the coolest music I still rock out to in the car!!!
Thanks Josh and Christine for having me!
If you happen to be a fan of House and EDM music, have a listen :)
So as you can see, I DJ tons of weddings! And with weddings comes Bachelor and Bachelorette Party's, right?! So I decided this month's Playlist will be packed full of songs that could be used for Bachelorette weekend! Yay! Or It can be used for any girls night in general. This was hands down my favorite playlist to make! There's 4 hours of music, including a few current hits, & TONs of the best throw backs! Im all about Throwbacks, if you haven't noticed :) But there definitely are some great current Jams!!
I am so Sorry that "My Humps" is not added in the playlist! Spotify can't play the song! But if it could be there it would! Again, I hope you enjoy!
So, if you know me, you know that I speak quite a bit on how much I LOVE house music. Actually my dream gig would probably be to play a 6 hour House ONLY set at a dope international club/festival! That would be AMAZING!! lol Anyway, when I explain the type of house music I like, I have noticed that I can't really explain it all too well. I know I like deep house, but when it gets more into the sub genres like Future House, and Tech House ... I really actually have no idea what I like. I know thats terrible for a DJ, but I do think so many genres merge, and its hard to classify them.
So, I thought it would be fun to make my July Fav Playlist full of some of my favorite house tracks! Now you can have an better idea of what I mean when I say I love House music! And have a better idea of my taste! Check out my July Fav playlist below :)
The title of this post speaks for itself. This playlist is full of some of the most nostalgic feel good songs of the 90s and early 00's. From Natasha Bedingfield, to Nelly Furtado, to Vanessa Carlton, and Howie Day. Now this playlist REALLY takes you back. I hope you like!!!
Thanks!! More to come :)
Lately I have been coming across some pretty amazing artists! So I am very very excited to share my May playlist!!
There is this funky soulful and sometimes hous-ish sound (kinda like kaytranada, but also not lol) that is becoming more and more popular, and I have been digging deep to find more and more!! I don't really know how to explain this sound, but I have curated a Soundcloud playlist full of yet again, my favorite music This playlist is similar to my previous playlists, but this time, most of the songs are funky remixes. I hope you enjoy!
Follow my soundcloud!
Thanks for listening!
I decided to record my set while DJing the London Hotel Client Party on 4.26.17. The London Hotel is a super chic, classic, and beautiful hotel located right in the heart of West Hollywood. It was a blast for me having the opportunity to play the tunes for them :) This was a networking event, so I kept the vibes chill and funky (my favorite!, if you haven't already noticed!)
It was a 4 hour event so this is obviously not the entire mix, but a cool snippet showcasing the musical environment throughout the night!
Have a listen.
VOX DJS THANK YOU FOR SENDING THIS GIG MY WAY!
Another cool Mash Up I made is below!! This one is using Erykah Badu's "On&On" acapella with Michael Jackson's "You Rock My World" Instrumental! I think its pretty cool, let me know what ya think! If you want this one, contact me!
Thx!! For listening!
So I decided to go ahead and make another Mash Up!! They are so much fun! This one is mashing up the classic hip hop song "Drop it Like Its Hot" with this super cool House song I found called "Don't Care" by Francesco Mon (Martin Kinrus Remix). To me, its pretty cool!
Go ahead and have a listen! And if you like, contact me and I can send it to you!
Thank you for listening!
So today, I am excited to share my newest mashup!! Using the instrumental from "Word Up" by Cameo, a funky classic. And the vocals from the sing along "Wonderwall" by Oasis!
Check out Mash Up below, and if you want it! Inbox me so I can send it to you!
Also feel free to Subscribe to my Youtube channel! I am gonna keep the vids coming :)
So i just finished creating my April Playlist and I am so excited to share it with you! This time, I decided to add songs with a more of a feel vibe. I went away from all the super dope eclectic ALT RNB I've shared in the part, and went more for just good music. Most are acoustic singer/songwriter songs, and some are cool melodic songs with catchy beats and lyrics. Ive included a few new songs, some classics, and some randoms that you might have forgotten about!! This is a great playlist for when you are simply in a good mood, and want good musical vibes! This playlist includes some of my all time favs, so I hope you like it!
This was a pretty cool opportunity getting interviewed and a mix of mine played on one of Belgium's top radio stations! One of my dreams is to become a radio DJ, so yes this is definitely a stepping stone! AHH!!!
I wanted to first of all give a HUGE thank you to Peter for reaching out to me and having me on the show, and I also want to give a shout to Voxdjs a DJ company based in Manhattan Beach. They were not mentioned in this interview but were huge in me getting started as a DJ :)
I have shared the interview and mix below!! Have a listen if you would like learn a bit more about me, and if you want to listen to my newest Top 40 House Mix!!
Here is another playlist with all of my current favs!! If you like ALT RNB, you will love this one. Most of the songs give a chill vibe, with eclectic rnb and urban roots. Again, hard to explain but listen through. Featuring music new music from Ed Sheeran, Khalid, FKJ, and JMSN!
If you like you might want to listen check out my mixes!!
Lately I have spent a ton of time listening and searching for music to prepare mixes I want to put together this month. And, I have found so many songs that I am currently obsessed with!! I cant stop listening! So, I decided I would put together a playlist and share it with you before I get the mix together!
Hoping I can get this mix finished this month. But for now, enjoy this urban chilled out electronic mix (honestly I don't know the genre) but the music fits ;)
As you probably know by now, I DJ a lot of weddings lol. And during these weddings, I work hard to pack the dance floor with all of the hits I know my couples and their crowd want to hear!! My goal as wedding Dj is to obviously get people dancing!!!! ......... But what do I play when its not yet time for dancing?
What do I play??
For me, the dinner playlists I curate are almost just as important as the music I play for dancing. While it is background music, it is music that guests and couple will hear, recognize, and think about whether they like or not. Having a great dinner playlist adds to the night and helps to set up a positive atmosphere which will ultimately compliments the music played for dancing!!
To set up my dinner playlists, I work closely with couples to find the "right" music to play that they enjoy, that they feel their guest will like, and music that will enhance the mood of the night! Within this post, I wanted to share with you a few of my most well received dinner playlists!
Have a listen below! :)
V and Monika
(oldschool rnb and chill electronic)
Annais and Brandon
Courtney and Jesse
Stephanie and Kirill
Soul, Motown, and Classics
Cheryl and Taylor
(Crooner style Jazz, and Classic Motown)
Marc and Monica
(classics, and indie hits)
As the year is coming to an end, I took some time to compile a list of what I feel were the TOP 10 songs of 2016!! This list is 100% my opinion. And because I took into consideration how often these songs were requested and actually getting people onto the dance floor, the list ended up being quite a top 40 playlist lol ....
The List Below!
10. Work From Home - Fifth Harmony
9. Work- Rihanna
8. Cheap Thrills - Sia
7. This Is What You Came For - Calvin Harris
6. Panda - Desiigner
5. Side to Side - Ariana Grande
4. Fade - Kanye West
3. One Dance - Drake
2. 24k Magic - Bruno Mars
1. Closer - The Chainsmokers
You can listen to songs on playlist below!
My song of the day is "Gotta Push On" by Griz. Listen below it is a big sounding catchy, and very cool, sexy song. The entire Griz album "Good Will Prevail", is amazing, but this one is exception! Take a listen, and please let me know which song other song the drop reminds you of?? I can't quite catch it, but the drop definitely is inspired by a classic throwback! Listen!!
