Babyblu has been dj'ing professionally in Manhattan clubs for over two decades. He has crafted music for fashion runways in Bryant park, London and Barcelona as well as film and TV. He has opened for bands such as Moby, Wyclef Jean, Poi Dog Pondering, Groove Collective and shared the decks with other DJ's like Tiga, Miss Kitten, Alex Gopher, Soulwax, Tommie Sunshine, Thunderball and Ursula 1000.
As one of the pioneers of the Mash-Up movement in the late 90's, Babyblu learned at a time when vinyl was all there was and DJ's were expected to have skills, taste and range and he remains true to those principles of performance. He's no button pusher. He still does every mix live and never plays another DJ's remix. More than a few call him the best DJ they've ever seen.
......" Hi , I'm Blu. like it says above, I've been doing this a long time. Although my bread and butter has been the clubs, I have done about 50 weddings over the last twenty years and I find that I enjoy them more and more. I've been lucky to have great clients who put their faith in me on one of the biggest days of their lives and I don't take that lightly. Chances are I'm as anxious as the bride, let's call it excited. Why, because i live for this. Music is all I've ever done; Piano at ten, Guitar at twelve Djing at 21 and collecting records since I was 8. Sharing music with people is a very powerful experience for me and I just find lately that I am more able to convey that joy and power in the context of wedding day as opposed to nightclub. So, that being said, I'm here for you when you need me. I'm easy to talk to. I want to give you what you want, and no one can do it like I can. "........luv, Blu (james)

I (bride) first discovered DJ Baby Blu attending a party at a SoHo bar in NYC. I loved the party, but the whole evening could have been me and Blu. Not only does Blu have excellent taste in music for a variety of genres (being an original master of the 'mash-up'), he also encompasses his whole self in his presentation. Watching him spin feels like a performance. You really can tell that he puts his mind, body and soul into the experience. I quickly became a fan and preemptively requested Blu's presence at my non-existent wedding. Alas, the day finally came and DJ Baby Blu made my dreams come true. I affectionately nicknamed Blu, "Transcendent Master of the Party." At our wedding, people got up on the dance floor who had not been on one in YEARS. We truly brought the house down. It was a night like no other. Blu tastefully arranged the evening from cocktail hour to party o'clock. He prepared several specific song requests that we had, but otherwise I put my trust in him and was not disappointed!! (Throughout the entire process, Blu was very easy to get in touch and communicate with.) Blu arrived a day early due to our out-of-town locale, no problem and was there at the venue early to help set up sound. He came prepared with his equipment and everything sounded fantastic. A number of people came up to me at the wedding and asked for his business card! There is no question that DJ Baby Blu is an infectious talent, a proper professional, and a generous soul with a heart of gold.

Blu is BY FAR the best DJ in NYC and the surrounding area. I've been dancing my face off to Blu's music since 2006 and now, as a wedding planner, I recommend him to my clients every chance I get. While very willing to give you the classic "wedding dj" experience - Blu's mixing of music, use of Vinyl and his originality is something that your guests will remember forever. If you're looking for something truly special and unique - DJ Babyblu is IT.

DJ Baby Blu was a huge hit at our wedding!! We had such an amazing time, and he was a major part of that! Everyone loved him, his music, and they danced all night. Truly a different type of DJ, because he only plays vinyl, and the music selection is incredible. HIGHLY recommend booking DJ Baby Blu...you will not be disappointed!!
