My career in DJing started around 12 years ago when I was living in London, UK. At the time, I was working for an event management company planning parties for all the biggest clubs in the West End. The guys that I was living with at the time had decks setup at our place and having always been so connected to music, having that equipment to use on a regular basis was like a dream come true. I eventually learned how to beat match (kids these days will never know the struggle) and because of all my connections in the events/club industry, I quickly started getting gigs all over London.
I'll forever be grateful for that first year of DJing -- playing in so many different venues that wanted different genres of music (80's, Disco, House, Lounge, Hip - Hop, etc) really opened my eyes and made me appreciate all those genres so deeply. It gave me the opportunity to see how people would react to different songs and styles. I really got to "study" the music on a psychological level.
Within a year, I was the resident DJ for the VIP room at Chinawhite, London where I started an Old School Hip-Hop night and later asked to be one of the resident DJ's for Amnesia, Ibiza. My musical journey after that took me all around Europe playing in Russia, Denmark, Italy and so many more incredible places. I started DJing for events like the Brit Awards afterparty, Gerard Butler's birthday, London Fashion Week, Red Bull sporting events, store openings and more. I got introduced to weddings and was flown all around Europe to DJ for them.
Now, being back in Canada, I've stepped back from the club world and focus mainly on events, weddings and more lounge type vibes. I'm proud to be a part of the Red Bull Canada events, Flygirl Pride events and I DJ around 30+ weddings a year here in BC and feel fortunate to be able to do so.
My style for DJing weddings is reading the crowd. There are so many different age groups and I find it really important to make sure everyone is happy and has a good time. I'll usually start with some fun, sing along oldies that everyone loves for the older crowd and then go into the younger throw-back stuff, catering to whatever age group that may be. After that, it's whatever people react to. If I find they're into old school Hip - Hop (just an example), I'll go down that road for a bit and then I'll move onto something else after a few songs to switch it up. It's really just a fun mash-up of tunes that everyone knows and has fun to.
