@DJBlizzardMusic Carries On Toots Hibbert’s Musical Legacy!


When it comes to Music Production, one of the names that stands out for outstanding contributions is Dwayne Hibbert, popularly known as DJ Blizzard. The young Prodigy is the Grandson of Reggae Veteran and multiple Grammy Award winner Toots Hibbert. He has made the bold move to follow in his Grandfather’s footsteps and cement his own place in the music industry.

He admits that being the Grandson of Toots Hibbert can be pressuring and are huge shoes to fill; but music is the only path for him. “The starting of my music career was inevitable, music is in my blood. I started off on Percussion, I went to the “California World Championship of the Performing Arts” and I represented Jamaica in that regard, the passion later evolved into music production.”

So far the emerging Producer has amassed quite the catalog. He has worked extensively with on the Lifestyle Rich Riddim featuring noted Producer Teetimus and Dancehall Artist Tanto Blacks, he also produced the song “One Link” by Lutan Fyah. In addition he has worked alongside Grillaras for Fambo’s “Get Crunk EP”; he has also worked on numerous occasions with his Grandfather, and the list goes on. “I have worked with Vybz Kartel, Beenie Man, Mr Vegas, Luciano, Toots and The Maytals, and so many more. I am grateful to have gotten the chance to work these people and I know that the list will grow as I continue working.”

Upcoming Projects

The multifaceted producer is currently promoting his latest Riddim, “Bunx Around” which features Kalado, Harry Toddler, and single with himself and Dancehall Artist Kemstsar. Blizzard is working assiduously on some upcoming projects, including an Album with Sizzla Kalonji, and some more work with Beenie Man. He is definitely a name to look out for as he brings fresh sounds to the scene.

@NikoChromatic Reveals Battling Kidney Disease, Seeks Assistance For Surgery


If you’re a fan of the “Big Bad SoundChromatic, then you definitely know about Niko a.k.a. Nikomatic a.k.a. NikoChromatic. A founding member of the DJ Collective, he was missing out of the limelight for quite some time. While many speculated a possible rift with the other members, Creep, another founding member, assured fans that he’s still a part of the team. Today, the real reason Niko has been missing from the Collective’s various gigs, and Mixtape releases was the fact that he has been battling Kidney Disease. While the news has sent shock waves across Social Media, Niko stated that his battle can be a short one through the help of surgery and revealing it to the public wasn’t an easy feat. The team recently started a GoFundMe account to seek additional aid for the ailing DJ/MC. While we here at 13thStreetPromotions wish the best for NikoChromatic, we urge you the public to assist in any way by donating via the link below, sharing the article, and of course praying.

GET TO KNOW: @JoshEra_ Of @REMlivingdream


Rapidly taking over your listening, social and creative space, Jamaican brand REM Entertainment is gradually generating a wave of tremendous proportion. If you don’t know now you DO, so sit back and take a peak into the mind of Josh Era as he sits with us to discuss the role his movement is playing in pushing the Jamaican entertainment scene to a higher plateau in 2016.

INTERVIEW BY: @SEF_JO
PHOTOS BY: @REMlivingdream

Sef: Kicking it off the right way, apologies for the delay; flu been had me sleep. We are honored to be working w/ REM Entertainment on various fronts. Punnany Pleasures is definitely a good look, well worth the 28 mins of play time.

JoshERA: Respect bredda, appreciate the support!

Sef: Got the go ahead to get things started so without further hindrances, I’d like to start by asking about REM: Who are you and what do you [as a collective] represent?

JoshERA: Basically… REM is a group of friends [more like family] and we put all our talents in music [DJ, Production, Artistry] and in Art [Photography, Graphics] in all forms. REM ENTERTAINMENT now is the sound made complete with DJ Kelly, DJ Laing and myself.

We play out at various events bring a unique energy and vibes to the crowd. REM itself stands for Rapid Eye Movement, just in case you weren’t aware.

Sef: Very interesting, surely seeing the correlation between your work as creatives and the dream state; I believe much of our creativity comes from the subconscious. I also do know versatility is key to gain credibility as a Jamaican DJ so what genres of music do you prefer to work with when mixing?

JoshERA: Versatility is very key and when I’m DJing I try to mix it up at all times – from old school hip-hop and rap to current Dancehall to current Hip Hop. I personally prefer current Hip Hop/Dancehall though.
