RayRay ``Phono Jones`` Sulaman
My name is Ray Sulaman and my partner and I started Oxygen Entertainment Group because we have the love for Music. My interest in DJ’ing began in grade school. After acquiring my first $500 DJ kit, my first gig was a high school dance. I was hooked after that and haven’t stopped since. This is what i do full time and love it!
Three decades later my excitement, passion, and investment in this industry have all grown 100 times over. During that time, I have had the privelage to perform alongside many great artists such as: Will.I.am (Black Eyed Peas), Questlove (The Roots), and The Merrymen from Barbados - just to name a few!
That $500 system is now a $50,000 professional equipment investment, that includes redundancies to keep the event going during almost any eventuality. My systems sound better, look better, and are more likely to work every time. And as a full time single-operator DJ company (in Ottawa) I am able to focus on quality vs. quantity.
You are not just “another gig” to me. I have a vested interest in every event I am a part of. My reputation and livelihood depend on it. I always ask myself, “If this was my event, what would I do to make it better?” “How can I make this wedding something that you, your family, and guests will remember forever?” Even though I’ve been a DJ for almost 30 years, my passion has not dwindled. You get the best of ME, and are not forced to choose from among 13 DJ’s who are either inexperienced trainees or bored, unmotivated employees clocking in for the job.
Every event feels different to me. Every song I play has a purpose. I find myself inevitably moving to the music. I never sit. The point? I truly love what I do for a living. I’ll probably get as much satisfaction from being a part of your event as you will from my services. After visiting this site, you’ll have a better understanding of how to hire a DJ, what to look for, and what separates our company from all the others. Whether you hire me or not, I’d like you to get a sense of what the mobile DJ industry is supposed to be like.
There is an enormous difference from one DJ company to the next. Please take time to review the information & videos included on the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s) pages. Knowing this information can make such a difference in who you hire, what happens at your event, and how you feel about it all afterwards. Thank you for visiting our digital home!
My name is Mark Singh (aka DJ Markus), and for 25 years I have been a fixture on the Toronto DJ scene. I'm Known for my ability to rock crowds regardless of musical taste or age demographic. My dedication to my art form has born the fruit of nearly-unparalleled knowledge of music and a sixth-sense to read crowds so I'm able to seamlessly switch gears when the vibe calls for it. What makes me one of the most sought after DJs in the Golden Horseshoe is my versatility as a DJ, and the reputation I cherish for providing clients quality entertainment with a sense of professionalism. My desire is to be the bar other individuals in my industry hold themselves to, and I work tirelessly for clients and crowds to make it happen.
Being a music lover myself, going to weddings, corporate events, etc., I noticed a gap in the industry - an aging DJ force struggling to keep up with a much younger market. As I've been performing for 25 years, I knew the solution was creating a synergy between what was happening and the direction things were undoubtedly headed. This meant a fusion of all the classic hits, combined with current hits - all mixed together by one DJ with “professional” skills. The X-factor from one DJ to another is one's ability to gradually build momentum - and keep building on it. This is done through careful song selection and high energy beat mixing. This is where I deliver - and what I truly feel sets me apart above my contemporaries.
A DJ career born from passion and a desire to provide a higher level of service that was not apparent in the industry is what spawned OEG - or what we otherwise named it Oxygen Entertainment Group. I am very proud to say that since RayRay and I began this company, our quality and level of service has been recognized by signing key contracts with major venues and vendors. Our business goal is to leave a positive and long lasting impression with all who have dealt with us.
Our reputation is on the line at every event. To ever become unaware of that fact would be a disservice to our clients and our business.
I work daily in a corporate environment and that provides an edge for having a very detail-oriented approach with our clients. When considering their overall experience, ``Having someone responsive`` is 9/10 near the top of what a key selling point of our service is to people and business owners. Having a reliable and attentive individual to their needs as a client and event organizer is critical to the success of the event - and should really be expected in our industry. That mean's with us, you have one less worry when planning your wedding, corporate team outing, or whatever!
Establishing a professional rapport right from the initial phone call or meeting is something that I pride myself on. You want to know as a client whether your needs are being taking seriously, and want to have a sense that the person you’re dealing with is someone who takes what they’re doing seriously... Let's be honest - this is an industry plagued with good DJ’s who lack professionalism. What we provide is not only a breath of fresh air - it is concrete peace of mind that with us - things will head in the right direction.
In summary, I strive to go above and beyond your expectations. To constantly and consistently work on my craft every week of ever year - throughout the year. I understand that, while DJ’ing is the main deliverable - consistent success at each event requires more than just a high level of skill at only one thing. My approach to this industry and the role as ``Disk Jockey - combined with my skillset - have resulted in many unforgettable - and successful events.
My usual catchphrase is “I am the “DJ”... But, I struggle being reductionist and defining myself simply with that term as that. It is more akin to ``I’m very much the Wedding-Coordinator-Director-Idea Sharer-Listener-Music Programmer-Sound Guy-and-peace-of-mind-giver``.
I DJ for many reasons, but being asked to be part of fulfilling someone's vision and helping build unforgettable experiences is a special opportunity.
It’s something I take very seriously - and I’m truly grateful to be a small part of it each time I'm in that booth and put my headphones on.
