The 97th installment of our wedding cocktail hour series was created on the back of strong recent demand for 90s music by our clientele and party guests. It seems that the Nineties are sparking the same nostalgia for millennials that the Eighties stokes for Generation X!
Compiled by Ambient DJs’ head honcho Gregg Ambient, the playlist features many of the biggest hit makers of the 90s as well as a few “one hit wonders.” Track selections gravitate towards fun, light musical fare, perfect to set the tone for an enjoyable wedding reception or other celebration.
For a signature drink, we’ve selected the popular “Cosmopolitan” – a libation that cut its teeth in the Nineties! To learn how to mix one, see Difford’s recipe by clicking here.
Immediately after the playlist, listen to the playlist on the accompanying Spotify playlist (unmixed), and enjoy a bonus “80s 90s Something” dance mix which focuses specifically on those songs from the late Eighties and early Nineties.

For the 91th installment of the Ambient DJ wedding cocktail hour playlist series, Ambient DJs’ Luke Rizzo, aka “DJ Cloak Dagger” submits a playlist of material from his “Noc Boots” record label. The Noc Boots sound features soulful original electronic compositions and bootlegs of R&B tracks (i.e., Sade) – typically in the 100 to 105 beats per minute tempo range. Some of these tracks fall in the “Nu Disco” genre, while others might be classified as R&B, jazz or lounge music. This playlist would be perfect for an upscale wedding reception in any global cosmopolitan center.
To learn more about DJ Cloak Dagger and the Noc Boots concept, read an interview with Luke Rizzo by clicking here. The talented producers on the Noc Boots record label are located across the globe. There are currently eight Noc Boots album releases, with future installments planned.
For a signature drink, we’ve selected a Whiskey & Club Soda – specifically the “Toki High Ball” Toki is a delicious brand of whiskey producted by Japanese distiller Suntory.
