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!

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.

Jeanne & Sean’s Baltimore Wedding Featured On United With Love!

0

Weddings are always more fun when you know a few of the guests.  They are especially fun when the people you know: a) love to dance, and b) remember you as the nerdy kid from high school.  That’s exactly what happened when I (9-Volt) handled Jeanne and Sean’s wedding this past January.  I’ve known Jeanne since we were in elementary school together on Guam, and I was ecstatic when she asked me to DJ her wedding.  Not only did I get to show off my skills in front of some old friends, but I was able to sprinkle in some island classics.

The George Peabody Library was amazing – it felt like I was in the Beauty and the Beast library, and I was half tempted to drop the Celine Dion/Peabo Bryson classic for the hell of it. In the end, I settled for the Percolator, seeing as how we were on the John’s Hopkins campus and the crowd was itching for some good Baltimore Club Music.

It’s an honor to have participated in this wedding and now it’s been featured on United We Love!  Click on the picture above or HERE to read more about the wedding!

And 축하합니다, 누나!!! Literally translated, “chuka hamnida, noo-nah” or “congratulations, big sister!”

Throwback: DJ Mike & DJ 9-Volt Spinning The 2010 Halloween & Homecoming Celebration At The Hall of Flags (Houston Hall @ University of Pennsylvania)

1

Going back to campus (Go Quakers!) is always weird for me. No matter how many times I go back, I go through the same thing. I look around and the buildings look the same for the most part. There are still kids walking around headed to the cafeteria, to class, to the library, etc.

But no matter how little things have changed from the time when I was in school, things are invariably different.  I will not see a familiar face in the crowd. I will not run into a crowd of friends who will drag me to the bar instead of letting me study at the library. And parties? Forget about it. The chances of me seeing my friends’ faces light up when I play “our song” are slim to none.

Unless, of course, we’re DJ’ing the PAACH Anniversary Party and the Taste of Penn Homecoming Celebration.  Mike and I did just that this past Halloween.   It was great to see everyone getting down to the old songs, especially the line dancing. It was also one of the rare times that I got to walk around in public as my true self. That’s right, you heard it here first. DJ 9-Volt is just my cover identity. In reality, I am The Flash. And I’ve been working out. Can you tell?

In any case, all of the reminiscing led me to post this mix. I hope those of you listening can share in my nostalgia.

Peace and lumpia grease.
