My eclectic mixology is best described as a story of soulful-infused blends with influences in Hip Hop, RnB, Dancehall/Afrobeats, Reggaeton, Pop, and Classic Rock.
Growing up, I adopted my parents’ appreciation for Motown and Funk. Also, I have a musical background as a singer, guitarist, and saxophonist. These skill sets have provided inspiration and a foundation for my mixing style as a DJ.
As well, my keen interest in hip-hop culture started at a young age. It grew through my experience as a break-dancer and graffiti/portrait artist. My love for mixing hip hop is also exhibited in my passion as a Scratch DJ.
Over the years, I have DJ’d at various special events for “big name” corporate clients including Pemberton Music Festival, VGC International School, New Image College, SFU, Steve Nash Fitness World, SpinHouse, Gold’s Gym, Armani Exchange, and Hugo Boss just to name a few. As well, I have been hired each year to DJ for several government agencies for various holiday parties. I held a residency for approximately two years at both Moxie’s Bar & Grill Guildford and the “ILoveKickBoxing” Coquitlam studio. Currently, I am the resident DJ at F45 Training fitness studio.
Since the start of the pandemic, I have kept my DJ skills sharp by maintaining the hired position of Social Media Broadcaster for one of the world’s top-ranking streaming apps. As such, I have stayed connected to DJ’ing in front of a virtual audience worldwide. Through this position, I have become more familiar with various genres of music. One of my ongoing projects has included teaming up with Madonna’s official DJ to rock da’ party!
Over the years, I have DJ’d a multitude of events, including cultural/fusion weddings and corporate functions. I am versatile and can easily adapt my musical genre selection based on the clients’ needs. For instance, I DJ’d a country wedding in a barn in Deroche, B.C. On several other occasions, I rocked the party in large banquet halls in Surrey, B.C. spinning the latest Bollywood and Bhangra hits. I have also DJ’d events in which there have been a fair amount of requests for Latin music, including during quinceañeras.
I find that DJ’ing weddings is such a hugely rewarding experience as I believe that music is so important during the newlyweds’ special day. I treat each wedding as a cherished milestone in my DJ’ing career.
In addition to being employed with Airwaves Music since 2016, I am also owner/operator of my own professional DJ business. This has allowed me to grow as a DJ and business owner. I have maintained a 5 star testimonial rating via Wedding Wire and also on my social media links.
