DJ 9-Volt Multi-tasking at Susan & Gary’s Battery Gardens Wedding Celebration in NYC!

Battery Gardens Wedding!


Gary & Susan - Battery Gardens Wedding

We here at The Remixologists pride ourselves on being able to multitask. We like to believe that we can do anything for any couple that calls on us. We’ve been DJ’s, emcees, bakers, photographers, audio technicians, video specialists…we even once had a DJ who decided he wanted to be both the DJ and the groom (*ahem* Taiga). Well, I (9-Volt) decided to add to that list by attempting the Best Man/DJ combo/Emcee for my college roommate, Gary’s, Battery Gardens Wedding.  Fortunately, rather than leave me to attempt this insanity, DJ Mike was able to come up and handle the DJ/Emcee responsibilities so that I could focus on being the best Best Man I could be (and honestly, we’re all glad he did).

Susan and Gary were married on August 11th at the Battery Gardens in New York City. Though the dancing was cut a bit short, DJ Mike was able to rock the crowd with a mix of Motown and Top 40. In fact, despite only being able to spin for about 40 minutes, DJ Mike kept everyone on the floor the entire time, so 40 minutes felt like 2 hours.

I’ve decided to dedicate Volume 40 of the DJ 9-Volt collection to Susan and Gary. I recorded it in the studio as though it was me who spun the wedding. The first few tracks were the entrance songs for the Bridal Party and the final song was the couple’s first dance. The mix’s title, “Music, Joy, and Love” is a nod to the toast I delivered in their honor.  Check out the mix and more pictures from the wedding below!

Congratulations, Susan and Gary. Thank you for letting me be a part of your special day.. Go Quakers!

MULTICULTURAL INDIAN WEDDING DANCE PARTY!

Rohit and Pia's multicultural indian wedding dance party

We first posted about Rohit & Pia’s awesome multicultural Indian wedding awhile back with a bunch of pictures (see here).  Now we have a short old-school feeling wedding highlight video courtesy of James Sengul.  Check out the fabulous details of the wedding and the raucous dancing that went on! We played everything from Stevie Wonder, Notorious BIG, Rihanna, Michael Jackson to Bhangra & Bollywood hits mixed in for a great dance party by all.  Everybody looked pretty sweaty by the time the evening was done, but they all left with smiles on their faces!

And I wish I could end every night with a visit to the elaborate dessert table & ice cream sandwich cart! 🙂

AAJA trivia bowl at ABC TV1 Studios

This is an oldie but goodie!  I (Taiga) was invited to spin for the AAJA’s (Asian American Journalists Association) inaugural Trivia Bowl at the ABC TV1 Studio in NYC where they currently film The Chew.  You can check out pictures and more tidbits from the event here.  Another fun fact… the space the Trivia Bowl was in used to be the set where they filmed the original “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?” with good old Regis Philbin.  Anyways, thank you for your kind words AAJA!

Dear DJ Taiga and The Remixologists,

Thank you for your amazing DJ and sound services at our 1st Annual Night Market in downtown New York on April 13, 2012.  You provided the beats and the funk to get the crowd moving and swaying throughout the night.  With a mind-numbing 500+ people in attendance, you guys were professional and fun and we really appreciated that.  We heard many people tell us positive comments about the music and the vibe and we can’t thank you enough.  I highly recommend DJ Taiga to other organizations that are looking for a fly DJ and look forward to working with you guys again soon.

Warm Regards,

Happy Words From The Bride – Sheraton LaGuardia East Wedding!

Sheraton La Guardia East Wedding!

Michele & DJ Taiga

We rarely appear in pictures with the bride & groom because we’re usually in the background running the show and understand that the focus is on our clients as it’s their big day. But in this case, Shelly grabbed her photographer to snap a shot during some downtime at her Sheraton LaGuardia East wedding.   I totally forgot about this until she sent me an email with it many months after the wedding.

As wedding DJs, we’re trusted by our clients with one of the most important days of their lives!  And for prospective clients that often comb the big bad web for advice & direction, it’s often hard to separate fact from fiction with the pretty pictures, slick marketing jargon, and seemingly anonymous reviews.

We here at The Remixologists value integrity and building our reputation one satisfied bride (and groom) at a time.  And to break down one of those walls and putting a face to one of those mysterious reviews, here’s one that Shelly left us on WeddingWire.

 

Simon of the Remixologist was the DJ and MC for my wedding. He is organized and super responsive (without being overbearing). I cannot thank him enough for being flexible (there were last minute changes, literally, DURING the reception and he was quick to react and kept everything moving smoothly).

He has a very diverse library of music and nothing was too difficult for him to pull or obtain. But I guess every DJ would have this but what everyone should really know is Simon was professional and although he lived 3 hours away, he arrived early to set up and this was during tornado weather. It is so important to hire someone that is reliable and Simon is definitely reliable. (Take it from me that it is so important to hire a vendor that have good work etiquette/ethics and is dependable. I couldn’t say that about all the vendors I hired for my wedding day but I was understanding due to inclement weather.) Even my in-laws were late to my reception and Simon (as an MC) could not move forward with introductions which threw the schedule a bit, but he recovered and it takes someone with experience to be able to handle such situations.

I am beyond happy with the services Simon provided and have no reservations in recommending him!

Simon-

This is long overdue but then again the party still feels like yesterday!  There are no words to describe how you rocked our night!  There was laughing, sweating, crying, jumping, the worm, the Dougie, and even nerve damage to a friend’s toe two weeks following the event because she simply COULD NOT STOP DANCING!  Thank you a million times over!  You are a rockstar and we hope to jam to your set again soon!

<3 Matt + Candice

Taste of Success 2012 @ Providence NYC

Taste of Success 2012 at Providence NYC!

Taste Of Success 2012

For the third year in a row, The Remixologists were invited to spin Streetwise Partners‘ Taste of Success fundraisers. The event featured food and wine from some of New York’s hottest proprietors, and it was all for a good cause. The event stands out among the things we’ve done, not just because it was for a good cause or because it was hosted by some great people, but because it’s definitely the longest event I’ve had to DJ solo, and believe me – I’ve been a part of some marathon DJ sessions.

The event itself began with an Executive Reception from 6:30-7:30 on April 19th at the Providence in midtown New York City. This was immediately followed by the main event which lasted until 10pm. But things didn’t end there. At 10pm, the party moved downstairs to the club area of the Providence and lasted until 1am. Talk about full day!

We’re honored to have been a part of this worthwhile event, and look forward to working with StreetWise again in the future.
