DJ D-Look

Strangest Wedding Experience as a Guest: "The strangest wedding experience I've had this year was a bride barely making it to the altar thanks to copious amounts of pregame vodka. Once the vows were read, she was toast and didn't attend the reception."

Strangest Wedding Experience as a DJ: "Alcohol can be a wedding's best friend or worst enemy. I DJed a wedding this past summer where the menu was cold cuts, Jack Daniel's, and Garth Brooks. Five people blacked out on the dance floor. The bride abruptly ended the reception two hours early."

Track That Always Packs the Floor: "My top wedding hiphop track is Notorious B.I.G.'s 'Hypnotize.' I'll save breaking new records for the clubs or radio, not a wedding."

Kitman

Strangest Wedding Experience as a Guest: "One time, the wedding DJ had a cast on his leg exposing his bare foot. The other foot had a dress shoe on. And he also had a no-hands magician microphone."

Strangest Wedding Experience as a DJ: "The Jaws theme song was the bride's processional music."

Track That Always Packs the Floor: "Big Pun's 'Still Not a Player.' It has a very catchy hook that is easy to sing along to."

DJ Phosho

Strangest Wedding Experience as a Guest: "I've been to many Cambodian weddings. And at Cambodian weddings, there's always a bottle of Rémy Martin or Hennessy on each table for guests. I've seen a lot of uncles get drunk and wanna flirt."

Strangest Wedding Experience as a DJ: "I think the most interesting one was when a ninetysomething granny was out on the dance floor for the garter toss, and she got booty-bumped onto the ground. Someone else got the garter."

Track That Always Packs the Floor: "'Bust a Move' by Young MC is liked by all."

DJ100Proof

Strangest Wedding Experience as a Guest: "Being a groomsman and walking down the aisle with an ex-girlfriend was pretty interesting."

Strangest Wedding Experience as a DJ: "Having the bride and groom crowd-surf to Benny Benassi's 'Satisfaction' on the dance floor."

Track That Always Packs the Floor: "I have to go with Run-DMC's 'It's Tricky.' I don't think I've ever played it at a wedding and didn't have at least 75 percent of the crowd jumping up and down and shouting."

DJ Marc Sense

Strangest Wedding Experience as a Guest: "The strangest incident was definitely at a wedding when the bride's male friend and former roommate said that the groom was not worthy of her in his toast. And it wasn't one of those 'you scored out of your league' type jokes. The room went uncomfortably silent, and amazingly enough, the guy got through the event physically unharmed."

Strangest Wedding Experience as a DJ: "The craziest end to a wedding was when a groom dislocated his kneecap while dancing. He crumpled to the floor and lay there until the ambulance arrived. Taken off on a stretcher, he gave his guests a thumbs-up."

Track That Always Packs the Floor: "Snoop Dogg's 'Ain't No Fun' is definitely the most fun. It's pretty much the antithesis of what marriage is about, but guys and girls enjoy rapping along to it."

All of these guys work for Integral DJs. Though the DJs in this group are also happy to play punk, rock, new wave, and soul, if your goal is to give your wedding a distinct hiphop flavor, you cannot go wrong with Integral. Hear their stuff or book them for your party at integraldjs.com. recommended
