Now let me clarify that I probably got hired for a few reasons, but when I started my set with house and some 80s, the host came up to me and said "please start doing what YOU do". I knew exactly what he meant because I DJd the same party last year. He wanted me to start playing that fresh good ole fashion hip-hop of the 90s and early 2000s. I hardly ever get asked to play that stuff anymore, if anything I'm always looking for ways to sneak it in.
Now the moment and I mean the MOMENT I started to play some hip-hop the room was on crack. People just got down and dirty but these were not just ordinary people. They were some of the most sophisticated, accomplished and well known chefs in the world. From Michelin stars to food network stars, the creme de la creme of the culinary arts. It was really surprising and awesome. They didn't want to hear Rihanna or Britney, they wanted MOP and Mobb Deep! Just like last year, tt was ON and it was HARD but above all it was a true joy and privilege to share a similar passion with a lot of people that I deeply respect.
