13thStreetPromotions: Hey Dadrian! Thanks for taking the time out of your busy schedule to have a chat with 13th Street Promotions! You’re at times  on the Radio and you sometimes make a Television appearance, but who is Dadrian Gordon?

Dadrian Gordon: Firstly, thanks for the interest and I appreciate the feature. Who is Dadrian? Hmmmm…I am a simple lover or life, love and laughter. I like being surrounded by things and people that add value to my being; that inspires, uplifts, celebrates, supports and teaches. I can be a Drama Queen and in the same breath be an Introvert. I cherish simple treasures; long conversations, listening to music, cooking new dishes, creating art and of course I can’t live without my TV shows. I’m the original Google Chef and Pinterest/HGTV is life. *chuckles*

13thSP: For those who aren’t up to speed, what do you do overall, and where have we heard and seen you work?

 DG: The question is what don’t I do (lol), but i pride myself in being an all rounder. I believe that if your environment permits, you should capitalize on all the available options. With that being said, I’m primarily employed as a News Presenter, however i’m a general Broadcaster at the RJR Gleaner Communications Group. I host my own Radio show on Saturday mornings (9 AM- 1 PM), I sub for E-Prime during Prime Time News (TVJ), I write and produce for selected Newscasts, I host Outside Broadcasts, I voice and produce Commercials, and I present the RJR News Webcast.

Over the years I’ve done Outside Broadcast coverages for a number of Festivals including Reggae Sumfest, Jamaica Jazz & Blues, Denbigh Agricultural Show, Independence Village as well as voice over ads for WIHCON and Red Stripe.

13thSP: How did you get into Media? Was it always your passion to do so?

DG: I’ll credit Northern Caribbean University (NCU) for introducing me to the field. As a Freshman we were/are required to do a career test which serves a guide to our career choices. Based on my interests and personality, it pointed me to Mass Communications though I knew nothing about the field, except that i wanted to sound like Paula Ann Porter Jones (Media Personality). I changed my major from Teaching and it was the best decision. I was surprised as to how natural and uncomplicated the transition was. And as they say, the rest is history.

You may have heard of the “Tall Ras“, you may have enjoyed his DJ gigs whether he plays in the club, the street or at your favourite University, but what you know about DJ Ariez?

We had a chance to holla at the DJ and get his thoughts on his recent signing, thoughts on the Jamaican Entertainment Industry, plans for the future and more.

Words By: SwadeDaVillain x Sef_Jo

13thStreetPromotions: Greetings Ariez, pleasure to hear from you. Catch us up on the momentum you’ve been gaining recently. Fans would love to know about your recent game-changer, bring us into your shoes so we can know what the Chromatic experience is firsthand.

Ariez:  The momentum since the move is a little overwhelming as it is a huge step up in my DJing career. This new opportunity has granted me more work (more Mixtapes, DJ gigs etc.), access to a larger fan base, and more promotion for my brand. I am ever so grateful for all of this.

13thSP: Let’s not kid ourselves, to work with one of Jamaica’s current top selectors is a huge achievement. Did you always figure it would be Chromatic and if this doesn’t get you into too much trouble, were there any other prospects?
