The University of Pennsylvania (UPenn) holds a special place in all of The Remixologists’ hearts. We all started our respective DJ careers on campus and have literally logged thousands of hours DJ’ing parties for student organizations, fraternities, sororities, museums, and university groups. We’ve become one of UPenn’s go-to DJ companies for homecoming and reunion weekend, and I (DJ Mike) was extremely excited when the University asked me to DJ the 10-year reunion for the class of 2002. While I always look forward to returning to campus and DJ’ing for my alma mater, this event would be even more special, given that it was the 10-year reunion of our very own DJ 9-Volt (Tristan).
The reunion was held on campus at the World Café Live!, and DJ 9-Volt and I made sure that everyone in attendance was able to dance the night away to many of the tracks we rocked during their undergraduate days. Not only was it great seeing so many long-time friends and familiar faces, but it was also priceless being able to play some “classics” from artists such as Shanice, Fat Joe, Cam’ron, DJ Sammy, Mario, Missy, Aaliyah, Nelly, Puff Daddy, City High, B2K, Cutty Ranks, N’ Sync, the Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, and Michael Jackson (just to name a few).
