My wife and I loved DJ RPM (Ryan) of Paradox! He was very accommodating before our wedding to meet about the order of events, preferred songs, flow of music, and had some awesome mixing and mashing. He arrived early and also helped a bridesmaid and husband with their equipment so they could sing a song for us. Ryan made our special day especially awesome.

Back in February we hosted an event called Night to Shine--a prom for people with special needs. Justin was incredible! He was professional, accomodating, flexible, efficient, creative, respectful, interactive and easy to work with. We had numerous people say how pleased they were with his work along with many requests to have him DJ again. With that being said, we are excited to have him be a part of Night to Shine 2019! Thank you Justin for a wonderful, stress free experience!

Paradox provided master of ceremony and DJ services at our wedding reception. A very professional organization. Justin is a skilled craftsman. Would work again with Paradox.

We loved working with Justin! By far the best DJ in Portland! From the beginning he was very professional and took the time to get to know us and what we wanted for our ceremony and reception. He made sure to have the best versions of the songs we wanted and his website to upload music, look for ideas, and make payments made everything so easy and efficient. During the reception we had some guests be a little difficult and Justin was so calm and warm and got everyone engaged in what was going on. When it was time for dancing, he played all of our favorite songs and was great about reading our group-many didn't want to dance. He got out on the dance floor to help me lead a dance and taught others a dance later on to get more people involved and dancing when I was sad more people weren't out there. I could not have asked for a better DJ and MC for our wedding day and can't thank him enough for making our big day so memorable!

My husband's family owns a wedding venue and we used to live on the property. As a result, we have experienced many weddings and heard countless DJ's. With that in mind, I was blown away by Justin and Paradox Productions. Many of those weddings I watched from my kitchen window and listened to all night were lacking the energy and cohesiveness Justin created.
Not only is Justin friendly and welcoming, he also put me at ease by explaining how he makes sure he is in sync with the rest of my vendors to ensure that the flow of our wedding was smooth. This may sound like a no brainer but trust me, it is a skill and requires attention to detail. Attention to detail that Justin has!
Throughout my wedding as well as afterwards, I was approached by my guests telling me how great our DJ was. My Uncle even went up to Justin at the end of the night to tell him how wonderful the music was from the time guests started arriving, through the ceremony, cocktail hour and the entire reception.
With everything a bride and groom have to worry about when planning a wedding, this does not have to be one of them. Do yourself a favor and book Paradox Productions so you can cross it off your to do list. I can not thank Justin enough!!

We used Justin & Paradox for our school auction, both AV and DJ services. We were so pleased with all of our communication up until the event, and during the event itself. Everything ran smoothly with the AV during our Live auction, and having music during our cocktail hour/Silent auction created a really exciting ambiance. Our after party was amazing! Great music, very engaging, had no problem incorporating our song list into the party. We would absolutely use them again in the future, and highly recommend to anyone looking for AV or DJ services!

We had the pleasure of working with DJ RPM for our wedding. He was very easy to work with and quick to respond to all of our questions leading up to the day of our wedding. On our wedding day he came and setup up all of the equipment and was very professional in helping us MC and keeping on schedule with our timeline. We would highly recommend DJ RPM! Thanks for all your help!

We used Paradox Productions for an employee holiday party, and could not have been more pleased with the service. We got a great deal by combining Paradox's DJ and photo booth services. Justin, the owner of Paradox Productions, was our DJ. He did an awesome job at feeling the crowd and playing music that they loved, and was super easy to work with. Between the dance floor, music, and photo booth, all employees had a blast. We look forward to working with Paradox Productions at future company events!

The BEST DJ around ⭐️ He kept the party rolling from dinner thru dancing and even brought amazing dance mixes to keep everyone entertained and grooving. Literally the entire party was up on the dance floor thanks to Justin! So happy! I am hiring him again for my next event!

Justin and his crew of talented DJ's excel at what they do. They are wonderful to work with, professional and attentive to details. Day-of they are always on time and self sufficient. Best of all? They will keep a dance floor packed all night. Can't say enough good things! If a traditional cheesy DJ is what you are looking for...these aren't your guys.

Dj Paradox aka Justin was SUPER GREAT! Great DJ and MC, he kept our reception going when people weren’t wanting to dance. He even showed to do some dances, thank you Justin! Very responsive, friendly and easy to work with. We knew after initial meeting we wanted him to be our DJ for our wedding. He was able to get us all the songs we wanted even though some are hard to find. Worked very well with our vendors. Highly Recommend DJ Justin! Thank you for a wonderful memory!

Justin and Jennifer were so wonderful to work with! They listened to everything we wanted and were very open to our specifics. He was great at getting the crowd on their feet and keeping everyone involved. We had a very particular list of Do Not Plays, which included many songs that are very popular right now. Justin did a great job of avoiding these songs. He also did a great job of mixing in our Must Plays that were very obscure. We had issues with food being ready on time and Justin did a great job of keeping guests distracted and dancing while that was figured out (the food service was a different vendor completely and was not involved with Paradox at all). We would absolutely recommend Justin to anyone looking for a DJ.

Jennifer was seriously the best bartender we could have asked for. She helped us craft and create signature cocktails and served them beautifully! She helped me figure out all the rentals we needed, cups, barware, etc. She was awesome at working around multiple people trying to be in charge and just kept to exactly what she knew the groom and I wanted. She is fantastic!

We LOVED DJ Paradox. We added up-lighting and a monogram and it looked incredible. We are 100% happy with our choice to go with this company. Out of all of our vendors, this is the one we were the most excited about. When the wedding was over our guests raved about our dj. This is a must pick if you want to WOW.

Review of Paradox Productions by Miranda Schwanke

We absolutely LOVED working with Paradox productions, specifically DJ O.G. One! You're reading this review and one thing you need to know about me is that I LOVE to dance, so choosing a top notch DJ was essential for my big day. As a consumer and bride-to-be, there are several reasons why I would choose Paradox all over again. First of all, they are extremely timely and responsive. Many vendors in the wedding industry lag on responses and can hold up your timeline, thus adding to your stress level and making the planning process difficult - NOT Paradox. Jen is always on top of her emails and is extremely accommodating when it comes to planning and coordination. Secondly, the seamless online planning platform was very helpful - it was easy to navigate and very comprehensive. Here you can submit your timeline, special requests, various music lists and make payments. Everything is SO EASY. Finally, I need to give major credit to DJ O.G. One who kept our dance floor crazy fun and was a great at reading the crowd. Prior to the big day, we met with O.G. One and he asked all the right questions about our wants and needs, and more importantly, he actively listened to our responses. He is the official DJ for the Portland Trail Blazers and was absolutely incredible at our reception. We received endless compliments on the music, the energy and the vibe of our reception and that is owed to DJ O.G. One and Paradox.

Justin is absolutely the best! If you need a Dj, just stop looking and book with Paradox Productions! We had an 80's party and everyone said the Dj was awesome... he was! Thank you so much Justin for such an awesome night of music! I'm sure you could tell the crowd loved you, they were on the dance floor all night!

Review of Paradox Productions by Adam Maruszewski

We worked with Justin for our wedding. He came HIGHLY recommended from friends and other vendors alike, and we were lucky enough to have him reserved (but had to do so way ahead of time!). He certainly lived up to the billing. He was very responsive over emails and Skype before the wedding, and delivered a very upbeat and positive night for the reception. People came to us multiple times through the night about how awesome he was!! He is a great DJ and very fun party emcee that appropriately balances his interaction with the crowd without being too obtrusive. He was awesome!!! Thanks Justin!!!

DJ Paradox is incredible! From the first email to the last minute of our wedding both Justin and Jennifer were prompt, professional and accommodating. They made sure that emails were answered within a day and that we had every song and detail that we wanted. Justin was fun and professional and we loved getting to meet him via Skype as we had a destination wedding. He was flexible with our beach ceremony and provided great sound and music that could still be heard over the wind and the waves. Our reception was a blast! Justin took care of every detail, I never once had to worry about what we were doing next, or making sure people were where they needed to be. Justin read our crowd and had the majority of our 85 people dancing at all times. People are STILL raving about the dance party and multiple people have said, "I've never been to a wedding where every single person was on the dance floor at one time." Justin definitely made our night and we can't thank him enough!

DJ Paradox (Justin) was a highlight of our wedding! Working with him from the beginning was easy and enjoyable. From meeting with him the first time to speaking with him at the end of the wedding, he was professional and I knew that his first priority was making sure everyone was having a great time. My husband and I made a recommended song list and Justin played every song at the appropriate time during our wedding. And, he was honest about the songs that would "clear his dance floor" during our last meeting, so we were able to remove those ahead of time. I told him two singers who I love and he made sure to sprinkle in their songs throughout the night - I loved it!!

During the wedding, he kept everyone on the dance floor with his song choice and great mixes, he really understands how to read a crowd. He also ensured all the guests knew when we were cutting the cake, having the first dance, bouquet toss, etc.

Justin was a great addition to our wedding and it wouldn't have been the same without him. The best part of working with him - he made sure the music throughout the evening was a representation of us. He was incredible!

Justin was awesome to work with and really understood what type of party we wanted for our wedding- a 2.5 hour dance party during the reception. Justin had some great ideas on how to incorporate different wording and song choices into our special day. He paid close attention to all of our requests and didn't miss a beat. Guests of all ages had nothing but great things to say about his part in our big day. He was the perfect addition to our wedding and worth every penny! We would highly recommend him!

I wouldn't classify Justin as just a DJ; he is an event coordinator, a partner, a fundraising guru and a music connoisseur all rolled into one. We hired Justin for the Beaumont Middle School Auction and I can honestly say he was pivotal in pulling off a successful event. With very little guidance from us and a whole lot of suggestions from Justin, we were able to both raise money, get a ton of people on the dance floor and sit back & relax a bit while he kept the event running smoothly. After the event, we heard rave reviews from attendees about his contribution and vibe. I've already recommended him to others and will definitely book him again for both business and social events.
