AAJA Trivia Bowl 2012 - ABCTV1 Studio New York - Corky Lee Photography

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!

Amy & Austin’s Cape May Wedding @ Congress Hall!

1 Comment Real Weddings By: taiga

Austin & Amy – New Jersey Wedding Photos – RHM Photography

We love spinning for folks who love music & dancing, and Amy & Austin were definitely that couple!  From our first conversation discussing their aesthetics, musical tastes, and love for concerts, I (Taiga) knew immediately that they wanted a laid back yet classy wedding on the beach with fun music and LOTS of dancing.

When the big day came, their guests took it to ANOTHER LEVEL at Congress Hall in Cape May, NJ.  During dinner, a musically themed table game quickly turned into full fledged table performances (with me playing backing tracks!) competing for the bride & groom’s approval!  And once the dancing started, folks danced the night away to everything from 50s rock & roll to Salt & Pepa to Avicii!

Check out these pictures courtesy of the good folks at RHM Photography!

Fan Mail from Amy & Lap’s New Jersey Wedding!

No Comments Props By: taiga

Mike & I (Taiga) helped Amy & Lap celebrate their wedding at the Park Savoy in Florham Park, NJ.  From handling the sound systems for the wedding (ceremony, cocktail hour, reception) to running slideshows and rocking the party, it was a full day’s work and the result was indeed AMAZING!

Thanks for the kind words Amy & Lap! :)

 

Dear Simon & the rest of The Remixologists Family,

Thank you so much for doing an amazing job on our big day.  Through all the craziness, you were patient and stuck with us.  We couldn’t have pulled this off without you!  All our best and deepest gratitude!

SXSW Translation Mix Part 4

No Comments Events, Mixes By: taiga


Happy new year all!  (it’s a little late I know…)

Here is the conclusion of the SXSW mix we made for Translation LLC’s party honoring Steve Stoute & Nas earlier this last year in Austin, TX.  Enjoy this 96 minutes party smash of hip hop, dubstep, and indie!  I’ve been told by friends (and clients) that they have solo dance parties while listening to this in the privacy of their own homes.  I would totally judge them, but I can’t since I do the same.  So dance away!  :)
