Movement for change with KaisaFit

Last Sunday I Dj’ed my very first fitness class at Melrose Market for Lululemon. Probably one of the earliest gigs I have ever done, but it was all for a good cause. Lululemon teamed up with Kaisafit to put on “Movement for Change”. Now if you haven’t heard of KaisaFit  get your phone out right now and search her name on Instagram. Go ahead I’ll wait……. haha!! This girl is a BEAST! Prior to the event I was watching her videos like HOLY SH%$ how does she do that! Another cool thing about her is she’s from Seattle too (woot woot!).

Before the event I was emailing Kaisa back and forth trying to get an understanding of the kind of music she wanted. All I saw in the email was “I love 90’s” and right then I was doing the running man in my head dancing with happiness! LOL

I attended a few fitness classes before, but her class was so different. Her energy was off the hook and I can see she has so much passion for what she does its amazing to witness. I vibed so much off of her when playing. I seriously felt like I was at a night club and Kaisa was the hype women on the mic.

Another cool fact about this event was 100% of all the money made was donated to Mary’s Place!

Mary’s Place provides a welcoming environment where homeless women, children, and families can find day and night shelter, nourishment, resources, healing and hope to help them find permanent housing.

PS. I over heard there’s going to be another KaisaFit class coming soon in the Summer, but at a much larger scale we’re talking about 300+ so stay tuned!

Here lies Love opening night party

Wow what a night last night!

I Dj’ed at the KEXP studios for a private party that Seattle Repertory Theater put on for everyone that’s apart of the Here lies love team and for their family & friends. The theme of the night was DISCO!

If you haven’t heard about Here Lies Love its a concept album and rock musical made in collaboration between David Byrne and Fatboy Slim, about the life of the former First Lady of the Philippines Imelda Marcos along with the woman who raised her—Estrella Cumpas—and follows Marcos until she and her family were forced to leave the Philippines. Cool right?

The show will be here till May 28th so make sure you go out and get your tickets and guess what! I have a discount link for 30%off!  http://seattlerep.org/promo/mahalattherep

Like always below are some pictures of the event and even some short video clips I took while Dj’ing so you can see how these people were getting down!!!

Seahawks appreciation night with George Fant @ True Religion Bellevue

True Religion teamed up with George Fant of the Seattle Seahawks for a special “Seahawks appreciation night”. There was southern food, champagne and even Hennessey what what! First time I Dj’ed an in store event serving Hennessey!

A few other Seahawk players showed up but of course me not being a sports fan I had no idea who they were I know I’m so lame. The best part of the night (for me that is!) was when the manager let me have a pair of headphones AND let me pick out a pair of jeans (ahh the lovely perks of Dj’ing in a retail store).

Capital Hill’s PRIDE!

 

I had so much fun Dj’ing for Capital Hill’s PRIDE last week. I was able to catch a few acts before me and OMG I saw this Drag Queen that goes by the name of “Lady Bunny“. After seeing her I have a new love for Drag Queens!

Then I was able to meet Candis Cayne from the TV show I am Cait. I was sitting next to her not even knowing who she was till  my friend filled me in LOL that just shows you how much TV I watch haha!

Damn you El Capitan!

So as most of you know Apple released their newest operating system “El Capitan” and oh how I hate it soooo much! I updated my computer not too long ago thinking everything is all good right… WRONG. I had a mobile gig a few weeks ago and when it was time to play. My computer wasn’t reading my Rane 57 mixer. That’s when I went into panic mode!

panic

After loosing if for a good 10 minutes..restarting my computer and my mixer about five times. I finally said Fck it and used Virtual Dj for the night (Hey don’t judge lol). Good thing it was a chill corporate event.. I can just imagine if this happened at a club omg.

So the next day I was researching on the internet on how to go back to the old operating system Yosemite. I only found videos if you backed your computer up with time machine which I didn’t so I decided to contact Apple. Below are the steps on how to go back to Yosemite, but just a warning. When go through these steps it will ERASE everything on your computer. So make sure you back everything up on a hard drive.
