It has been 22 years since Frass migrated to the United Kingdom. However, dancehall music, which he discovered in his hometown of Seaview Gardens, never left him.
The deejay gets a chance to show the skills he developed in the UK on July 23 when he performs on Reggae Sumfest’s closing night. His latest songs are Dolly House and Down Low, both done with singjay TaviiZoey for Ireland Records.
Performing at Sumfest is a big deal for him.
“Yes, it is very important because the genre of music I represent, its birthplace is Jamaica. The response from the crowd when they like your music, it’s a epic feeling,” he said.
Frass disclosed that most of his songs are self-produced, mixed, and mastered at his recording studio in London. Going into Reggae Sumfest, he linked with Ireland Records, also from Seaview Gardens, to record songs with TaviiZoey.
From St Catherine, she launched her career in late 2021 with the song Nu Ready, which was followed by Chewing Gum and Stalk It. Her previous single, Millionaire, was produced by Ireland Records and released in March.
TaviiZoey is the daughter of Jacqueline Ryan, a gospel singer who has done backing vocals for artistes such as Carlene Davis, Papa San, and Judy Mowatt.
