    • Beyoncé+Jay-Z

       The performance the entire music world was waiting for arrived last night. Yes it was the 56th Grammy Awards and everyone who is anyone in music is usually in attendance for the biggest event in the music calendar. However, last nights awards ceremony was special (not only because of the 34 couples that were wed and officiated by Queen Latifah) but because BEYONCÉ and JAY-Z put on (in our opinion) the best performance of the night!

      Screen shot 2014-01-27 at 09.58.03 The perfection of the performance was as expected from two of the greatest names in music, with Beyoncé performing one of her new tracks ‘Drunk in love’ from her most experimental and vibrant album Beyoncé. From surprising the world with the release of this album on December 13th, causing iTunes to go into meltdown, to having music videos assist every track on the new ‘visual album’; it is clear that Beyoncé has rightfully earned her place in music history.

They not only looked comfortable performing together, they have heightened the expectation of live performances at the Grammys! Their steamy rendition will definitely be a performance that no one will be forgetting any time soon.

      IKEA Cardiff Transformed into an adult play area and Nightclub!

      Just been going through some old images and below is a little story about what we did with IKEA back in 2008/9.

       You’ll never look at IKEA Cardiff the same but at their request, we transformed their store into a Nightclub. A little unusual we will admit but something that we here at SGDJ jumped at the opportunity to do! With a little help from our sister company (Impact Effects) and in collaboration with Dragon Bouncy Castles and White Fusion, we provided a very different ‘day at the office’.

      Everything you would not expect to find in IKEA, you actually found! On the ground level there was our very own Rodeo Sheep, Gladiators and an inflatable slide and bungee run!

      On the first floor you were treated to a massive club standard sound system, a bouncy castle, sumo suits and over 2000watts of UV lighting on the Dancefloor! To top things off Staff were even treated to a FREE BAR!

       

       

       

      The Sound of 2014

      “Nobody knows who I am, but most of the people in this country have heard me sing”

      You may not recognise his face but this man is no stranger to success in the music industry! Sam Smith, up against the likes of Ella sam smithEyre and Chlöe Howl awarded Critics Choice Brit Award and BBC Sound of 2014. This was not a surprise to us after hearing his beautifully haunting vocals. He gave Disclosure their first chart hit with Latch, he’s the voice behind Naughty Boy’s no.1 hit ‘la la la’ and was the supporting act to Emeli Sandé’s latest tour. This up and coming musician has released several superb solo singles, each showcasing his naturally born talent, faultless falsetto and tremendous technique. The 26th of May 2014 is the date set for the release of his first debut album: In the Lonely Hour, which can be pre-ordered from his website samsmithworld.com.

      Here’s a sneaky peak of what it will be sounding like. Watch this space!

      Most requested songs of 2013

      It has now been a week since the majority of us drank ourselves to oblivion, sang ‘Auld Lang Syneand finished off the left over turkey.  While most of us partied, watched numerous firework displays or got overtly excited during the countdown for the New Year (as I always do), the time to go back to reality is finally upon us. The doom and gloom of January, the cold and grey feeling most of us experience, enhanced by our struggle to uphold our new years resolutions is something that makes January one long and continuous Monday.

       

      Nevertheless, the team at SGDJ has been putting their knowledge to the test to hypothesize what were the most requested songs of 2013? The outcome might not be what everyone may expect but with many mobile DJ companies like ourselves, we cater for those who throw an outrageous MTV style SweetSixteenths, to making someone’s wedding day extra special and even 70th birthday parties. Therefore it could be the smash hit ‘Blurred Lines’ up against an old time classic (or rather golden oldie) like ‘Sweet Caroline’. Thanks to the DJ Event Planner song request system, a comprehensive list has been compiled, giving us the top 200 most requested songs of 2013 based on over 2 million song requests!
