"Motown On Mondays"
MOM DJs is a family of djs, musicians, event producers,
designers and music enthusiasts that all share a passion for
the convergence of soulful dance music. They perform at and
produce weekly, monthly and special events across the globe.
From their headquarters in San Francisco to Los Angeles, New
York to Austin, Honolulu to Berlin, Moscow to Vancouver, we
represent the most spirited events with a unique vibration. After
several years of cultivating the collective energies of their partners
and fans they’ve grown a veritable garden of talent to work with.
The inspiration comes from Motown, soul, funk and disco with
a focus on original remixes and edits of timeless songs. We
continually seek to bridge the gap from the tender eared youth to
the discerning tastes of our much-respected elders while placing
emphasis on quality and vibe over bottom line thinking. No
matter what the project MOM DJs keep your spirits lifted and hearts
“Connect. Commune. Create.”
Elle DJ is a relative newcomer to the mixing game but a veteran in the hall of music lovers. Born in the boogie down she is steeped in the NYC tradition of hip hop, disco and soul but her eclecticism enables her to embrace music worldwide. Any given night you may hear her play jazzy electronic beats to 80s rock classics. You will definitely hear some golden-age hip hop. Elle DJ endeavors to include all participants in her music experience and hopes to touch every listener's heart and soul with her musical selections, encouraging them to smile, reflect & dance. Her current residency is Friday and Saturday nights at Five Lamps Tavern in Morningside Heights and she also plays private events in the NY/NJ area.
DJ Daniela, the beauty behind the beats, known for her thoughtful blends of new and classic hip-hop, house, soul, and R&B, has been a major player in the Bay Area hip-hop and soulful house scenes before moving to NYC. She held down residencies at legendary San Francisco parties including: Remedy and Soul Café and is one of the co-founders of the Oakland's original underground house music party Brothers and Sisters. Since her arrival in Brooklyn in 2008, she's earned her graduate degree in Urban Policy and currently works as an administrator with CUNY in support of first generation community college students. She continues to make heads nod on the NYC music scene hosting a series of underground "Let's Play House" parties and djing premier lounge events.
When asked twenty years ago by his parents "what are you gonna do out there in San Francisco", New York Native Wisdom confidently replied, "Deejay!" Now twenty years later in 2012, DJ Wisdom's career has taken him to places as far away as Europe and all over the United States and Canada. This list of parties he's played at nationally and internationally have included Cafe Moscow in Berlin, Germany, The Fillmore West, in San Francisco, CA, and The Basement, in Ontario, Canada. Wisdom has been the founder and resident at numerous parties throughout San Francisco's golden era of the 1990's and early 2000's, such as Funkside (Club Deco), Blend (Storyville), and Casa (Madrone). These parties are representative of the diverse types of of music DJ Wisdom blends (brings into the mix?), as varied as hip hop, soul, latin, caribbean, and international. This multifaceted appeal grew its roots in the early years in San Fran when, in 1993, DJ Wisdom, along with J-Boogie and Raw-B, created Beatsauce hip hop radio show on KUSF, a groundbreaking show that ran for 15 years. During those programs, DJ Wisdom interviewed such musical legends as Afrika Bambata, Guru, Common, and Jay-Z. Currently living in New York with his family, with residencies throughout NYC and upstate,....
Intent on defending the blend, Concerned navigates the waters where Funk, Soul, Reggae, Latin, Afro-beat and Hip Hop intersect. He is a fan-favorite and a darling of the social scene. His versatility makes him the rare DJ recruited by live bands of all genres. Concerned is trusted to set the vibe for any audience, customized to the style of the particular band.
