DJ Babey Drew for Monument
DJ Babey Drew made his name as the touring DJ for American pop singer Chris Brown. He is set to take his brand of turntable skills to Renaissance's 25th anniversary party -- Monument -- at Mas Camp in St Andrew, tonight.
DJ Babey Drew, whose given name is Andrew Bisnaught, said when he was approached to be a part of the event, he couldn't refuse.
"I was like, hell yeah. I used to study Renaissance when I was younger, and I have tons of their tapes still," said Drew, who was born in Queens, New York to Jamaican parents. He spent his formative years on the rock before relocating to the United States.
Drew is currently working on an EDM album that will feature dancehall artistes from Jamaica.
"The project is about merging authentic EDM/house tracks with authentic dancehall and reggae artistes," he said.
A professional DJ for the past 16 years, Drew has become a staple within the American DJ market. He is listed by Vibe magazine among its Top 100 DJs and has worked with a long list of high-profile clients including Beyoncé, T-Pain, Ne-Yo, Bow Wow, Jordin Sparks, Lil Wayne, and Kelly Rowland. He currently works at Power 96.1 in Atlanta.
For the milestone event, Drew joins a cadre of selectors from Renaissance, Stone Love, Coppershot and DJ Lank from Code Red.
According to Renaissance Disco's Delano Thomas, patrons should come out and share in the momentous occasion.
"We have a lot in store for patrons, so everyone needs to come out and join in the fun. Pre-sold tickets will automatically be entered into a draw for a chance to win a free trip to New York courtesy of Fly Jamaica," Thomas shared.
Dancehall artiste Assassin aka Agent Sasco will be the host of Monument.
