We have spun the WIVP (Wharton International Volunteer Program) Winter Ball the past few years & it’s always a blast. This particular year was held at the Loews Hotel Philadelphia. What you read & see is totally true, business school folks know how to party!Continue reading
Every so often we get the opportunity to help people in need & do something cool in the process. Back in December, DJ Mike & Taiga teamed up with special guest MC DJ Bonics to provide the tunes for Rescue/Revive/Rebuild, a fundraiser for the Typhoon Haiyan Relief Fund held at Yard’s Brewing Company in Philadelphia.Continue reading
Taste of Success 2012 at Providence NYC!
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.
Join us on June 6th (next week!) as we help StreetWise Partners celebrate their 15th anniversary of transforming lives in NYC at the Edison Ballroom! It will be a night of food, drinks, and fun from the finest in NYC including STK, Mercadito, Yerba Buena, Luke’s Lobster, Heineken, Trump Winery & many more (full list below.) And for the Top Chef lovers, finalist Dave Martin will be in attendance and serving up his world famous truffle mac n’ cheese, chocolate mousse, and more! And of course The Remixologists will be providing the tunes for the evening along with a special jazz band performance.

We were honored to help the Asian American Journalists Association’s New York chapter in producing & spinning their inaugural Trivia Bowl at the ABCTV1 studios in New York City last year!
Sixteen teams competed — from the New York Times, CNN, Asian American Bar Association to the CUNY Association of Black Journalists — to win the coveted Tea Cup trophy and bragging rights for the year. Real judges from the New York area including the Honorable Marilyn D. Go, and the Honorable John Lansden, scored answers and ABC News Correspondent Juju Chang and FOX 5 reporter Ti-Hua Chang served as the evening’s emcees.
My favorite part of the night was when I dropped Hypnotize as the judges deliberated an answer for the Notorious BIG’s hometown (Clinton Hill vs Bedstuy… both answers were deemed correct). The timing was perfect as NYC crowd erupted in cheers!
And the winner of the Tea Cup trophy? The team from the New York Times!

Over 400 people packed the Providence NYC on a rainy Thursday night for the 4th Annual Taste of Success presented by Streetwise Partners. The Remixologists provided the soundtrack for the 2nd year in a row and we did not disappoint. On my short breaks from spinning, I made the rounds and stuffed myself silly with all the great foods (my favorite: tuna tartare from Buddakan) and drinks (MORE MOET!) from the wonderful sponsors that support this great event and organization.
After the event ended at 10pm, everybody moved to the downstairs club area and danced the night away. Don’t be fooled by the suits and and proper attire, people GOT DOWN on the dance floor! I am barred from posting any afterparty pictures… just kidding… sort of. 🙂
