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



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!

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!

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!

And here's just a pic of me! 😌

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.

Bachelorette Party! - August Favs


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! 

Thank You!! 

Kara's July Favs - HOUSE MUSIC

Hi Everyone! 

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 :) 



Kara's June Favs - The Most Nostalgic Feel Good Songs For All 90s Kids


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 :) 

Kara's May Favs

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! 

Live Mix @ The London Hotel (Client Party)(4.26.17)

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.


Drop It Like Its Hot X Don't Care (House Edit/Mash Up)

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!

Kara's April Favs!

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! 


Kara's March Favs

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!! 

Kara's Feb Favs

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 ;) 

Listen Here! 



All About Dinner Playlists!

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! :)

Courtney and Jesse
