It’s been a while since we’ve heard from DJ Fuse (o/c DJ Fusion and Kxng Fvse). Now a part of the Zip 103 FM family, he can be heard providing the scoop on the Jamaican Entertainment scene daily. While many missed his Mixtape offerings, he decided to try something different with his 1st in the “Infotainment Mix Series” mixtape. Powered by his FratSquad collective, not only will you hear Fuse mixing up some of your favourite Dancehall tunes, but he can be heard chopping it up with some of the movers and shakers in Entertainment. In Episode 1, he spoke with Recording Artist/Producer Dane Ray about his career, his production game including the recently released “Sport Mode Riddim“, and more. No long talking, it’s time to press play. Check out the Mixtape below, and share with a friend.
You’ve seen him mix it up at events, and you’ve heard him play on one of the top Radio stations in Jamaica (Zip 103 FM), it’s all about ZJ West! We’ve worked with him over the years, and you can hear some of his work in the Mixtape section. Recently we got a chance to interview him and we spoke about his work, Yung Gunnerz, being a Dad, and much more. Without further ado, GET TO KNOW the Zipjock named West below!
