Kim D Birthday Bash

“In this business, planning is essential.  It’s to your benefit to plan in advance; it’s always worth the time and effort.”

There isn’t one gig that DJ Cruze steps into blinded or ill prepared.  Working with Kim D directly, DJ Cruze was able to create the perfect event to honor the Birthday Girl.  “You have to truly get to know your client, inside and out.  From the era in which they were born/grew up to what inspires them personally.  These two criterion allowed me to perfect a Birthday MashUp that few DJ’s could bring to the table.”

DJ Cruze was tasked to combine hits from the Greatest Song Master’s since the early 40s; from Frank Sinatra to Bruce Springstein, Kim D is a true Italian, New Jerseyan and Music Buff.

“It was unique and reassuring when DJ Cruze sat down to plan this event with Kim DePaola (most known from Bravo TV’s Real Housewives of New Jersey Franchise),” he says.  “Kim only wanted Oldies!  While I was able to still express current popular music and mix it up with artists such as Justin Timberlake and Neyo, primarily, we focused on classics from The Beatles to Ray Charles.”

The event, held at Il Tulipano, was an intimate and personal setting.  It hosted family and friends, while showcasing all facets of the Birthday Girl’s Empire: A Summer Runway Show by Posche Boutique and her latest venture Cuffs by Kim D.  Never missing a beat, Kim D received support from close friends Teresa and Joe Giudice.

A Message from DJ Cruze:

I encourage (from experience) any DJ aspiring to break into the radio industry to consistently produce audio aircheck’s to demonstrate their talent off air, as it would be performed live.

This is an essential tool to possess, most particularly as far as your Press Kit or resume applications are concerned.

Below, check out a sample I’ve put together to promote my mixing ability, the DJ Cruze Brand, local advertisers/events and of course – the station.

March Madness Mix

The Road to Becoming a Top-Notch DJ (Dee Jay/Disk Jockey) includes one specific destination along that journey: Mastering the Mix.

No residency or celebrity event will fulfill DJ Cruze more than the satisfaction of knowing his mixes are unmarred and matchless.

On his quest to the Top, DJ Cruze discusses why he frequently returns to the Mixing Room; for one purpose only… PERFECTION!

Referring to the March Madness 2013 Mix, he states:

“Making this mix was probably one of the hardest mixes I’ve ever done in my entire DJ/Production Career. Composing this piece literally forced me to sit on the other side of the speaker and analyze this weeks Mix Subject, song relevancy to it along with the needs of the listener. The song selection took an hour to set up alone; simply because I aim to tell a story rather than throw a bunch of songs together. I also wanted to show diversity by mixing Old School, New School, Hip-Hop and a bit of Rock-and-Roll.”
