May 2015 | Wedding | Alex and Tuyen

Location: Donovan Reading Room at Loyola University

It was our first time at the Donovan Reading Room, which was a beautiful venue with a view of Lake Michigan.  X-Fade provided DJ, Emcee, and dance lighting for the event.  We worked with Metts Photo, and they were very easy to work with.  (Credit to Metts Photo for some pictures below) We hope to work with them again.

The dancing part of the evening was full of high energy with Alex, Tuyen and guests not wanting to leave the dance floor.  We played pop music and hip hop!  Everyone just wanted to party.  They even had a bottle of Fireball with a GoPro attached to it and passed the bottle around the whole night.  I can only imagine what was recorded on that camera.  As the night ended nobody wanted to leave and kept requesting one more song.  It was a great time by all!

May 2015 | Fundraiser | Fabretto | Night in Cannes

Location: Hilton Orrington in Evanston

Fabretto Fundraiser:

It was an honor to be a part of this 400 person fundraiser whose theme was Night in Cannes.  It was a night of gambling, dancing, and drinking to benefit an amazing cause, Fabretto, an organization that provides meals and education to thousands of children in Nicaragua.  It was great to work with Nicole, our main contact for the event who had spent some time volunteering for this wonderful organization.  She was very organized and answered all our questions, which helped us make the event flow smoothly.

X-Fade provided the music and up-lights for the entire night.  Guest started dancing when they were finished playing at the gaming tables.  We played a lot of top 40, rock, hiphop threw in some old classics that kept the dance floor packed for the reminder of the night.   It was an amazing night with great energy from everyone there.

This video shot by my phone shows a little part of the beautiful Hilton Orrington in Evanston Grand Ballroom and the energy of the party.

X-Fade Radio 012 | Jeff Mabi presents Mixology Ep. 06 | House

Hmm so what have I done since April, the last time I uploaded mixes?

Well, I experienced Coachella Music Festival for the first time and visited EDC Las Vegas for the third time!

Both festivals are great in their own way and of course if you want nothing but EDM, EDC is the obvious way to go.  Coachella had a more eclectic mix of artists and genres and although I’m a big fan of dance music, it definitely provided a fresh musical experience for me.

This weekend I’ll be attending the Riverwest Music Festival in Chicago with more of an underground house flavor.  Looking forward to getting a biggest taste of what’s out there!

With all the new influences of music I’ve been having, here’s another house mix heavy on the UK sound.  I’m telling you, it’s the next big thing.  Enjoy!

P.S. – If you’re an artist, especially a DJ you’re probably well aware of SoundCloud’s recent crackdown on copyright infringement.  Therefore, I opened up a Mixcloud account where you can stream and download my other mixes from.  Check it out at

I also created an EPK!
