Have you heard this new one from Fitz and the Tantrums? I’ve been playing it for a few weeks now and it’s killing on the dancefloor. Check it out!
One of the many great things about the legalizing of same sex marriage in Washington is that we’ve become a destination wedding site for many same sex couples. I can’t begin to tell you how happy it makes me to work with all of these couples who finally have the right to marry! Continue reading
Every year there are just a few weddings that stand out above the rest for one reason or another. Not only was this wedding at Hotel Ballard one of my favorites of the year, it’s definitely now an all-timer! Continue reading
I love when I hear people complain about the current state of hip hop. This only happens because they’re limiting themselves to what’s being pushed by the mainstream. The truth is that the current state of hip hop is FANTASTIC!

This was requested at a wedding I played back in February at 1927 Events in downtown Seattle and I nearly pooped myself when I saw it on the request list. It went over SO well and the staff loved it, too! Check it out!

This rides the line between progressive house and trance and is pretty high energy throughout. Enjoy!
