CEO’S NOTE 2
Since MUZIK’s inception, our team has carefully nurtured its vision and developed a reputation for delivering five-star luxury, style, service and security. In a constant state of evolution, we strive to transform our outlook as often as we do our classic 1907 structure. Drawing global inspiration, MUZIK is a collection of international ideas that weave together the best the world has to offer. MUZIK is a sanctuary where Torontonians, and world travelers alike, can escape to and indulge in. When you are at MUZIK, you could be anywhere. This summer MUZIK is preparing to take its clientele to new heights. To kick things off we are unveiling the MUZIK BEACH. My inspiration for MUZIK BEACH came from one idea – Toronto and its people. They are international adventure seekers who enjoy the finest destinations as much as they do their own thriving metropolis. MUZIK merges all of this. The soft white sand, palm trees and crystal blue water combined with the lavish landscapes, sculpture garden and the warm wooden cabanas. I’d like to thank Toronto for its inspiration. The essence and energy of the city has provided MUZIK with the muse it needed in order to reinvent, once again. So get ready, get your summer fashion on and come join me at the beach.

AY JAMES JUSTIN BIEBER’S PERSONAL TOUR DJ TAY JAMES SHARES A BELIEBER ENCOUNTER AND WHAT IT’S LIKE ON THE ROAD
Q: Name your most influential musical inspirations. Michael Jackson, Jay Z, Kanye West & Justin Bieber. Q: First record you ever bought? Bone Thugz and Harmony-Crossroads. Q: Defining moment that led you to become a DJ? At the age of 12, I was sitting at home during spring break and “Spring Break on MTV” came on. DJ Scribble was spinning and he was the star of the show. He was the host of the show and on between breaks he was mixing music, from then on I wanted to be a DJ. Q: You are Justin Bieber’s personal DJ. What is it like touring with one of the biggest names in the music industry? It’s honestly still a surreal feeling and I’m blessed to have my job. It’s nothing like touring the world to make thousands of people smile. Q: Do you have a pre-show routine/regime? Honestly pre-show is real chill, we may play a quick game of ping pong or listen to music. Everyone’s main focus is the show. Q: Is there a song that reminds you of a certain point in your life? Maybe not a song but an Album. Drake’s So Far Gone and Kanye West’s Graduation are probably two of my favorite albums ... they both came out during pivotal times in my life. Q: Describe the craziest Belieber fan encounter you experienced while on tour. Nothing really that crazy, but in Norway it was so hectic that when trying to pull into the venue, the fans ripped out the van door wide open, and started to step on.
Q: Which other Artists would you like to do a future collaboration with? I would love to work with new independent artists... I love to help with the creative process of projects. Q: Aside from DJ-ing, what are your other interests and hobbies? I’m trying my hand in production and my main focus have been the ‘We Know The Music’ foundation I recently started. Q: Favourite getaway destination? Australia. Q: What’s next for Tay James? #weknowthedj.com and follow the success.

but ratHer the vibe and energy in the room that make a night special to me.”
TORONTO-BASED DJ WRISTPECT CHATS ABOUT TORONTO AND THE INTERNATIONAL MUSIC SCENE, AS WELL AS THE FIRST RECORD HE EVER BOUGHT.
Q: HOW DID YOU GET STARTED IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY? I started by attending local DJ battles and being mesmerized by what those guys were doing with two turntables, a mixer and some records. They were literally using the turntables to manipulate sounds and make it sound like they were playing several different instruments at once. One thing led to another, and as I started going to all-ages club nights I was captivated by how the DJ was controlling a room of 2500 kids and I would spend the whole night by the DJ booth, just watching and studying. When I decided I wanted to get out of my basement and start playing clubs, I started as an opening DJ, paying my dues and warming up the room for some of the bigger names in the city.
LY, HOW DOES OUR CITY’S MUSIC SCENE COMPARE TO THE LIKES OF L.A., HONG KONG, or london? Toronto is a world class city with a world class music scene that plays a major influence to millions of people around the globe. We have artists from all types of genres on the forefront of popular music right now - Drake, Justin Bieber, Deadmau5, Walk Of The Earth, Carly Rae Jepsen, The Weeknd and so many more. Even on an independent level, we have so many amazing artists and producers who are making major waves worldwide. It’s interesting because when I would travel to other cities or countries 5 years ago and mention that I was from Toronto or Canada, no one really cared. Now, it is a completely different story as people realize just how much talent is over here. London is interesting because they Q: FIRST SONG YOU EVER MIXED? definitely have a unique sound that is completely their own and I think one of the first records that I actually beat-matched and not just because of their accent. As far as LA goes, I think that it is ‘mixed’ was Mya Feat. Jay-Z - Best Of Me (Remix). There are many the best place in the world to be for making music; all of the others but that one stands out to me for some reason. influential executives are there and there’s really no better city to be in for meeting people and getting things done. Hong Kong is Q: MOST MEMORABLE SHOW YOU’VE EVER BEEN A PART primarily shaped and molded after the North American Billboard OF? trends so they are less open minded and both the crowds and Opening for and sharing the turntables with guys like Jazzy Jeff venues tend to be (generally speaking) much more commercial. and DJ AM are always memorable nights because those are some of my biggest influences. It’s not always the biggest and most Q: Name a song that never fails to pump up a beautiful venues that are the most memorable though, but rather lackluster crowd. the vibe and energy in the room that make a night special to me. “The Way You Make Me Feel” by Michael Jackson or “Poison” by Bel Biv Devoe. Q: name your most influential musical inspirations. This is always difficult for me to answer because there are so many Q: What do you love most about your career? people, each for their own reasons... Some that come to mind are The fact that I get to put smiles on people’s faces and make them Michael Jackson, Miles Davis, Quincy Jones, A-Trak, Phil Collins, forget about their worries and troubles by doing what I love. It’s Timbaland, Pharrell, James Brown, Daft Punk... I could go on and a great feeling to be able to spread positive energy and connect on. with someone half way across the world who may not even speak or understand english.. Music is a powerful tool. Traveling to new Q: first record you ever bought? cities and countries is always an eye opening experience as well; Hmm... I think that was the Juicy 12” by The Notorious B.I.G. you can learn a lot from the world, especially when you step outside of your own bubble and comfort zone. Q: current top 5 favourite tracks of 2013? In no order, Daft Punk ft. Pharrell Williams - Get Lucky, Chris Brown Q: Favourite cities to play in? - Fine China, Justin Timberlake - Suit & Tie, Duke Dumont ft. Toronto, Oslo, Amsterdam, Singapore, Montreal, New York. A.M.E. - Need U 100%, Drake - Started From The Bottom Q: What’s next for Wristpect? Q: You’ve played alongside huge names such as Continuing to play events and tour worldwide, working on music Eminem, Drake, and Lady Gaga. Which other artists marketing campaigns for brands, and focussing on my own original would you like to do a future collaboration with? productions, which I hope to start releasing this year. With Em and Gaga, they were just at events I was DJ-ing but with Drake, we actually put together 3 exclusive records for a mix-tape series of mine. There are so many artists that I’d love to get in the Photo By: Ishmil Waterman studio with.. Namely, Jay-Z, Andre3000 and Sade. Q: AS A TORONTO-BASED DJ THAT TOURS INTERNATIONAL-

arella GET TO KNOW MUZIK’S RESIDENT DJ.
Q: how did you get started in the music industry?
Q: Which other artists would you like to do a future collaboration with?
Q: First song you ever mixed?
Q: Name a song that never fails to pump up the crowd.
I was introduced to DJ-ing at age 12, my older brother and cousin were bedroom DJ’s and I was fascinated by the technology and the sounds.
I’d like to do a collab with Danny Tenaglia, he’s a very well respected DJ worldwide and has a rich history in music.
It’s Time To Party by Raydio (70’s & 80’s funk group featuring My remix of Calling (Lose My Mind) – Joe Marella & LOS Ray parker Jr.) I was a disco & funk child being the youngest of Bootleg Reconstruction. 8 (2 brothers and 5 sisters).
Q: Do you have a pre-show routine/regime? Q: Most memorable show you’ve ever been I try not to listen to club music for at least ½ of the day prior to a gig. a part of? I was the DJ of choice for Cher’s Farewell Concert at the Skydome (Roger’s Centre). It was an amazing feeling to be Q: What do you love most about spinning performing in front of 30k people all whilst interacting with The at MUZIK? Queen Diva herself. The diversity of the crowd, the SOUND SYSTEM, the space is incredible with the 60’ glass dome.
Q: Name your most influential musical inspirations.
I am a purveyor of all music. Genres are too confusing, especially to today’s generation. I was a drummer in my early days and loved Jeff Porcaro (Toto) & Jonathan Moffatt (Quincy Jones studio band), they knew how to keep a groove without overdoing it.
Q: First record you ever bought?
Being the youngest of 8 siblings, I got a lot of records handed down, I don’t really recall the first “one” but there have been many since.
Q: Current top 5 favourite tracks of 2013?
1. Reverse Skydiving – Lee Foss feat. Anabel Englund 2. Calling (Lose My Mind) - Joe Marella & LOS Bootleg Reconstruction 3. Nobody Else (Original Mix) - NTFO 4. Get Lucky – Daft Punk 5. Soul Ft. Sutja Gutierrez (Nice7 Remix) - Affkt
Q: Vinyl vs digital?
I’m a vinyl junkie, but I realize that digital is the future and I’ve adapted and will keep adapting as long as there is change. Change is good.
Q: Where do you see the DJ movement in the next 5 years?
So many people believe that they can create a playlist of mp3’s and use software to “mix” the songs, therefore they call themselves a “DJ”. The MOST important part of being a DJ is the ability to read your crowd and feed off of their energy. My motto is “keep them on the dancefloor.” I refuse to let my audience slip away and then have to play to “bring them back.” The digital movement has made it too easy for anyone to claim to be a DJ. However, the future is definitely in the digital world. joemarella.com/
