Penn Alumni Party Like It’s 2002!

No Comments Events By: mike

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).

Real Love For Fei & Nick in New York City!

No Comments Real Weddings By: taiga

When I (Taiga) first met with Fei & Nick to talk about their wedding, two things were clear… 1) Fei LOVED Mary J. Blige and 2) I would have to play a LOT of Mary at their wedding.  That was music to my ears as I’ve been a fan of Mary J since the mid 90s and love R&B in general!

On that beautiful fall night just a year ago at the Bayard’s in Lower Manhattan, I helped Fei & Nick celebrate their big day with Mary’s soulful voice during dinner and that hip hop soul on the dance floor.  And it was quite fitting that we ended the night with the timeless R&B ballad Be Without You!

Congrats again Fei & Nick!

Fan Mail From Lisa & Tom’s Dallas Wedding!

No Comments Props By: taiga

Today we have FAN MAIL from some good friends of ours!  Lisa & Tom’s wedding at the Rosewood Crescent Hotel in Dallas (great hotel btw) was so much fun! (see Exhibit A)  For me it was another instance of pulling double duty as guest & DJ, but there’s just something special about serving your friends on their most special day.  The wifey & I had a great time in Dallas again (Fuel City Tacos anyone?) and I’m sure we’ll be back soon!  Thanks for your kind words and congrats again!

Simon-

Thank you SO much for making our wedding so fun + special.  We are so lucky to have such a talented friend and DJ =).  We are so glad that you and Monica could join us on such a special day, and really thank God for our continued friendship.

<3 Lisa + Tom
