San Diego Electronic Dance Music DJ at Halloween party 

IMG_1186Last weekend I got the opportunity to DJ in San Diego at a daytime event called hoppy Halloween at SILO quarter in downtown.

The other San Diego DJ booked to play could not make it, so that meant my set time was extended by an hour and I would need to bring my own mobile DJ equipment.

No problem!

I set up on the stage, covered from the sun, and plugged into a larger sound system.  Unfortunately the sun took a turn and started melting my Serato DJ control vinyl records like hot cakes.  Regardless of this unfortunate circumstance my two hour set went off without a glitch.  I slowly built the afternoon vibe with deep funky house, disco trippy sounds and groovy bass lines. It was awesome to hear my beats on a larger sound system.  The MC gave me shout outs while making announcements and even pointed out that I was playing turntables and vinyl records.

 

San Diego DJ at grand opening of Draft Republic

dj-misha-draftI recently played the grand opening of Draft Republic hosted by Pacific Magazine. The new venue located in the UTC area is a new addition to the Cohn Restaurant Group.

Pacific Magazine hosted the grand opening with San Diego DJ Misha behind the turntables. Skip’s Garage acoustic band played american rock covers.

Skip’s Garage is also known as Rock Out Karaoke, San Diego’s only Karaoke band. You can sing on stage like a rock star at one of their residencies in San Diego.

A ping pong and fuse ball competition hosted by Pacific Magazine was a hit. The lucky winners took home $250.

Pacific Magazine event staff were happy with the evening and followed up with
“You guys were awesome and the vibe was perfect! Thank you both for a great show…”


If you need a San Diego DJ to play a party, birthday, wedding or any other event, please contact me. I would love to provide the music.

San Diego DJ in a Secret Room

“We are going to lock you in here,” said the owner of the venue as he handed me the keys and his staff positioned the air conditioning unit that had just arrived. I had been asked to set up my turntables in a small hidden room located past the restrooms, through a few doors and down a long corridor. No one was going to find me here, not ABC and especially not the audience of 200 people for whom I would be DJ’ing for the next 4 hours.

Due to a miscommunication with the event planning no live music performance was going to be legally tolerable. Unless of course it was impossible to find where the live music was coming from.

San Diego DJ

By the time the air conditioner showed up I was already an hour into the set and had made the decision that this was going to be a mega mix. I would try to play as many songs as possible to keep myself entertained. Usually I don’t like to do this because I think that many DJ’s mix songs too quickly and don’t let their audience fully enjoy each song.

There are advantages to DJ’ing from a locked room away from the audience. There are no distractions, just my art and a lot of silly dancing. No requests, no audience feedback, no people coming up just to chat about whatever. This is somewhat similar to being a lonesome bedroom DJ but then totally different when you know there is a huge crowd listening to the mix.

Over the 4 hour set I had the occasional visitor to my secret DJ closet, the event and venue staff telling me that it was sounding great. The manager of the venue shared that a few guests had inquired where the music was coming from. Overall the event was a success and a one of a kind experience that I hope never happens again when I DJ in San Diego.

Thank you to Pacific San Diego Magazine and their awesome staff for always having me out to play their events!

San Diego DJ for 40th Birthday Party

DJ Misha San Diego

When I was contacted to DJ for a 40th Birthday party in San Diego I was excited because the clients told me they are big fans of Electronic Dance Music.   They even provided me some of their favorite “lounge” and “dance” tracks which I was happy to mix in throughout the evening.

The intimate party was held at the elegant dinning room of The Salt Box inside Hotel Palomar, formerly SE Hotel.

I provided the DJ mixed sound track for the evening, and towards the end of the night was asked to stay longer,  Dj’ing for over 5 hours as people mingled over cocktails and danced the night away.

Analog Bar – San Diego Nightclub

Last weekend I worked at Analog Bar with SanDieogHouseMusic.com and was really impressed with this venue.  It’s a great place for a DJ, since special attention was given to both the DJ booth and the sound system.  It’s also a fantastic place for getting down on the dance floor with a big room sound and sweet lighting.  I look forward to working more at Analog Bar in the upcoming months.

San Diego DJ Misha featured in Pacific Magazine

As a San Diego DJ, sometimes I get mentioned in local publications and recently was featured in the March 2011 Issue of Pacific San Diego Magazine.  (on page 16)

I will be DJ’ing an upcoming event hosted by Pacific Magazine at Andaz Hotel’s new wine bar on Friday, March 25th from 5-8pm

Next to the honorable mention of my name, the editors of the mag also say:  “The dude still plays vinyl!”

🙂  It’s true!  Even in the world we live in today, where DJ music is moving fast towards the digital realm, I still play some vinyl records.  My reasons? The aesthetics feel of handling vinyl and the quality of analog sound could never be matched or replaced by any software or digital file.  Plus… I just love it!
