DJ Brain bats for new talent

Although he has made his name across Central Jamaica as one of the most in-demand disc jockeys on the party circuit, DJ Brain has plans to get into music production to help new and emerging talent.

The Mike Town, Manchester, resident says the level of determination from young talent is what has sparked his interest.

“What mainly draws my attention towards young artistes is their level of determination and drive towards getting their body of work out to the public and their focus on keeping up to date with the hottest topics or trending topics of the day,” said DJ Brain.

He added, “I am planning on getting into music production with the aim of working towards helping upcoming artistes around me. I would start with them first.”

Some of the new and up-and-coming talent that DJ Brain has on his radar include dancehall artistes Raw Cash, 1 Biggs Don, Jay Don, Skillfoot, Luminous, Chankitty, Benswag, Frass Kyng, Keerzero, and Sykah.

DJ Brain has played at a number of top parties and events held in Central Jamaica, including Dubai Lifestyle, Hot Sauce, H20, and Same Flame.

Born Cavaughan Cassells, DJ Brain attended Glenmuir High and later Clarendon College. He played midfield on the daCosta Cup teams for both institutions.

He shared how his interest in music developed.

“My dad had a mobile sound, so I was always around the sound. My interest grew from there that I would love to be a DJ one day. I was also motivated by others,” said DJ Brain.

“I have seen a lot of growth and progress over the years since I started out. What I bring to the table as a DJ is producing my own music and making remixes to play in my DJ sets. That’s another great way of giving yourself an edge. Also practising and organising and knowing the type of event you’re going to play at is a plus,” he continued.
