Friday Night FUN: DJ D’Lish at Geisha House!

This weekend I DJ’d the Bosphorus Nights presents: MADE IN ISTANBUL party at Geisha House in Hollywood. What a success! I didn’t think we could top the last Bosphorus Nights party at Les Deux in June, but I have to say that this one was even better. More people, more new music, and lots of love! Most importantly, I wanted this night to reflect two of my favorite clubs in Istanbul, Turkey: Reina and Anjelique. Both clubs are unique in their own environments and music and Friday night I tried to create a fusion of these popular clubs by playing a variety of European House, Lounge, Turkish, and Latin House music.

DJ’ing in the Moon Room was definitely a treat, as guests were able to see the night sky from above and also had their own private bar. VIP tables circled the dancefloor and of course, I had my own stage with… wait for it…. my own lighting control (that came in handy towards the end of the night….mood lighting anyone?)

As guests arrived somewhat early, I began by playing my typical “cocktail hour” music…Bitter:Sweet, Gotan Project, Late Night Alumni, Kaskade and then began to pick up the pace a little bit with some Ben Watt, Max Zotti, & Jose Delgado (recent releases: see featured music below). For those familiar with Turkish music, I played some new Burcu Gunes, Tarkan, Demet Akalin, & Serdar Ortac. In my attempt to mix things up, I then switched gears and played my favorite Euro house songs: Yolanda Be Cool – We No Speak Americano, Edward Maya – Stereo Love, & of course Stromae – Alors On Danse (YouTube Video). These 3 gems definitely got the crowd dancing and singing along!

After another round of Turkish music, I thought it was time to roll out the Spanish house! I began this section with one of my newest favorites Carnaval Mundial (see featured music below) – a house cover of the famous Celia Cruz’s La Vida Es Un Carnaval. After, came the beloved Suavamente, and then a Gypsy Kings megamix! More turkish followed with Turkey’s most popular summer hits: Hande Yener – Bodrum, Serdar Ortac – Poset, Tarkan’s Sevdanin Son Vurusu, & Ozan Dogulu ft. Sila – Alain Delon. But I think the 2 biggest Turkish hits of the night were Ibrahim Tatlises’ Gulum Benim & Kenan Dogulu’s Elveda Meyhaneci. (When I say biggest hits – I mean the crowd sang the LOUDEST to these!)

Once again mixing it up for the non-turks, I played the new Tony Gomez song “Tell Me,” leading into the one and only Swedish House Mafia’s One (Your name) remix. This one, as always, brought the house down! (YouTube Clip) Others were Adrian Lux – Teenage Crime, David Guetta/Afrojack – Louder Than Words, & Afrojack – Take Over Control.

While I have to say I wish I had worn my “I DON’T TAKE REQUESTS” shirt, the abundant amount of individuals who approached me that night didn’t just ask for specific song, but also said thank you for playing their favorites. This job is only fulfilling to me when I can please the crowd and when I can go home at the end of the night knowing I made them happy. (Ok I also like that fact that I can play music that I love and dance while I’m djing) 🙂

Thank you to everyone who came to this event. Thank you to my closest friends and family for all your support! Thanks to Baris Avsar for organizing everything. Let’s get ready for yet another successful party!

MĂ©lomane Monday: Dance with D’Lish

It was another D’Lish-ous weekend! I DJ’d a private birthday party on Saturday night in Beverly Hills that was a lot of fun. With a “pink” theme  that included pink martini glasses, pink candles, & pink balloons, my pink computer case & laptop stand fit in perfectly.

Taking place in the backyard of the birthday girl’s house, the party was most definitely a hit for the crowd that included about 100 guests – especially the Casino games (because really, who doesn’t like to gamble)? I literally played everything that night: Jay-Z, Bitter:sweet, Lady Gaga, David Guetta, BEP, Kaskade, Usher, La Roux, Marina & the Diamonds, & more.

And guess what? It will be a D’lish-ous week as well! This coming Thursday the 17th I will be DJ’ing for the first time at the hotspot club Les Deux in Hollywood! As someone who doesn’t traditionally DJ at clubs (more so private parties & events), I am beyond excited and so happy that I’ve been given this opportunity. I’ve been preparing an extensive and ecclectic playlist for the past week and am READY TO ROCK!

This coming Saturday I will also be DJ’ing a private pool party in Beverly Hills for my sister’s birthday. With a latin theme, an abundance of tequila and food (oh and my music because basically I can play whatever I want), I’m pretty sure this will be an unforgettable summer party to kick off summer!
