Hi everyone.  I've been looking at the DJ reviews on this website, but wanted to know specifically if anyone has hired a DJ that they know mixes old-skool hip-hop well.  This may be a lot to ask for in the riviera maya, but thought I'd give it a shot.  My brother and cousin are DJs, but I don't want them to have to work at the wedding.  Coming from LA, being Filipino and my fiance being Indian, we both love 90s hip-hop and we love to dance.  And we are a bit of DJ snobs.  Was looking at videos from Disco Movil's website to get a sense of his mixing ability but there wasn't much on there.  There was one video of a wedding where he played Rihanna and then played Bel Biv Devoe's "Poison."  But it wasn't a good mix transition- once the Rihanna song ended, Poison just started.  DJ Mannia has a good sample online, but the reviews have been mixed.  Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

I agree. You have to remember... this is Mexico we're talking about. I don't think it would be close to the level of sophistication that you're thinking of for clubs in LA. My son is a DJ and if he follows through with going with us to Mexico for our vow renewal, the very first thing he asked me was if he would be able to step in with a DJ and do some mixing!! So I would be very surprised if your brother and cousin would have any qualms about playing at your wedding. They could always split the time so they each get a chance to enjoy the wedding. Besides - if they're anything like my son, they would never pass up a chance to show off!! lol  He always tells me - hey you never know who might be listening!!

We are most likely going to go with DJ discomovil. We are in the Philadelphia area and our family is from NY. We are into 9th hip hop and reggae. What I do know is this part of Mexico is VERY americanized. They listen to what we listen to and I honestly preferred the clubs in mexico than home

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
