Q & A
What kind of music do you play?
I play a wide range of styles! My sets usually consist of a blend of Disco, House, Top 40, Hip Hop, and Mash-Ups. There is always a variety of genres and decades, with a focus on keeping bodies on the dance floor. Of course, this can be tailored based on your event’s needs. Check out the Music section for different samples of what I play!
What kinds of events have you played in the past?
My first gigs were at local bars at Queen’s University in Kingston, where I learned the basics of how to DJ. After moving back to Toronto, I played nights at venues like Cabin 5, The Ballroom, and SPIN. From there, I expanded into corporate events, working with corporate clients such as TIFF, The Canadian Olympic Committee and Heineken. Over the past two years, I’ve started to play a number of weddings and they’ve been some of my favourite gigs to date! Check out the Testimonials section for more information.
What separates you from other DJs?
It sounds cliche, but unbridled passion is my biggest difference. I know my music, and I love my music - that comes through in every aspect of my performance. Coming from a background of playing parties, I combine the spontaneity and fast-mixing that you would see at a nightclub, with the music selection that appeals to a wide variety of ages and styles. Don’t settle for the typical cheesy wedding DJ formula!
What kind of equipment do you use?
When it comes to sound and lights, I try to customize every package based on the event space. My focus is always on quality sound and basic mood lighting, I price every rental at cost. When it comes to my own equipment, I run Traktor Scratch Pro 2 from a laptop with a MIDI controller - this gives me the best flexibility to customize my sets on the fly.
Do you take requests?
This is the question I get asked the most! I try to accommodate to every couple’s needs, especially if there are a few of those “must have” songs to make the night. When it comes to the night of your event, I’ll do my best to work in requests from guests, while keeping in mind the mood of the party.
