Papizzle to release mix tape
Popular local selector DJ Pappizzle will next week be releasing his latest mix tape, 'Kickout!' The former resident DJ of the popular Quad nightclub, says that with his latest project, fans can expect new songs from the hottest genres of soca, dancehall-reggae, EDM, Hip Hop & R&b.
It will also showcase new rhythms and singles from Chimney Records, Popcaan and Chi Ching Ching.
The tape will be available on all social media platforms. Pappizzle who describes himself as "Charismatic, flamboyant, mind-boggling and electrifying," says that he plays for the fans but he doesn't get carried away with the hype and trying to fit in. Originality, the disc jock says, is at the top of his portfolio and his high-intensity sets are packed with excitement.
"There is never a dull moment once I'm rocking a party," he said in a release sent to THE STAR.
While he has a large repertoire of successful gigs over the last 14 years, playing on the radio has eluded him and that's something he wants to change.
In the meantime, the former Kingston College past student is plying his trade as a freelance disc jock. Born and raised in Fletcher's Land, Kingston, the 31-year-old born Orane Levy, says this enables him to reach higher heights without the restriction of being just a "club DJ".
In an industry which is now predominantly saturated by anyone who can purchase a high-end laptop, Pappizzle says he is staying true to his professional roots.
While admitting that technology is good, he professes that there are bad elements to not learning the business from the foundation. Most young, new and popular DJs he claims, don't know the basics.
"No one takes time out to be original anymore. Everyone thinks being a DJ is easy," he said.
The disc jock said in order to remain relevant he spends a lot of time developing a rich formula to keep the party scene pumping.
