5 years strong, “You Gots To Grill” is the best BBQ mix series there is. Whether you’re grilling up some tasty meats in the backyard, shining the 100 spoke Daytons on your rag top tre or just eating ribs until you pass out, this is your soundtrack. Don’t forget to grab volumes 1-4…

Sorry it took me a second to get this up, I’ve been hella busy and didn’t find the pics until right meow. 

New Year’s Eve was out of control!

Crown Room opened the doors at 9 and were packed to the brim by 10.  There was a line around the entire building of people that didn’t buy the presale tickets all night long.  The Love Loungers set the mood and when I went on at 11 people were dancing like maniacs.  It was a great vibe all night and probably the most fun I’ve had DJing for NYE yet.  Enough about all that, check the pics…


You’re probably looking for somewhere to celebrate New Year’s Eve that isn’t full of douchebags…  You probably want to hear some good music, eat some good food, get your drink on and not spend an arm and a leg doing it.  Lucky for you I have just the party…

On Saturday, October 22nd, I DJ’d the wedding of 2 awesome people, Lindsey and Ashwin, at the Mattress Factory in Pittsburgh.  I was already excited because the music request list was nothing but house music and Motown, and the caterer told me the menu included traditional Indian food.  (Not a bad gig if you ask me…)  Luckily the weather held out and we had a beautiful ceremony.  After dinner, photos and a few quick speeches, it was non-stop dancing until it was time to leave.  I had a blast and I have a feeling everyone else did too.  Thanks to Caitlin Thomas for the awesome photos.


I recently got to put another stamp in the passport for a gig (even though technically they don’t stamp for Canada anymore, which made me sad).  The homies Hennie V and Jug-E brought me up to Bank in Barrie.  Barrie is a small suburb of Toronto but they get it crackin’ for sure.  You only have to be 19 to get into clubs in Canada but luckily I did not get arrested.  Bank, which used to be an actual bank, was super dope and even had a rooftop deck, SkyBank.

Crackin’ early!

4:1 girl to guy ratio all night…

This is how it starts…

This is how it ends…  Hi-Top box fade for the win!

19 year olds these days…

It’s Canadian law that you have to eat poutine after a gig.

Good thing the hotel vending machine was stocked.  I was thinking about getting a Hi-Top box fade for my next trip but wasn’t sure if I’d be prepared…


4th of July this year was awesome.  Red Bull hired me to DJ out of their giant monster truck, the MXT.  The MXT transforms into a party with a full DJ setup, speakers, flat screen TVs, and an Xbox / Playstation setup in the tailgate.  When this bad boy is open, you can’t miss it.  I was downtown at the point for Pittsburgh’s Regatta all day and night on the 3rd and 4th.  There were events all day and night including Miles from the Red Bull Air Force dropping into the city occasionally from a helicopter in his Skyak.  In addition to the day gigs, I got to warm up the crowd for the fireworks and broadcast the choreographed music for the fireworks display.  There had to be 5,000 people at the point for the finale!  Check out the video at the bottom.  Thanks Red Bull!


I hit the road in June for a week-long tour and covered both coasts.  Thanks to everyone that put me on.  I’m including a grip of photos but be sure to check the full album HERE.  There was almost as much eating as DJing so excuse the food photos.  Anyone who knows me knows I love to get down on some food.  Look out for my FOOD BLOG launching soon…

It’s that time of year again… Grab a 40, throw some ribs on the grill and leave your 9 at home because Summer is here. Every BBQ needs a soundtrack so here it is. “You Gots To Grill – Volume 3 – Grillmatic” is the 3rd installment in my annual Summer BBQ mix series. It’s a fresh mix of some feel good, semi-gangster Summer chunes for you to enjoy. Wipe your mouth…
