Rumbar bash to feature top DJ

First Prev 1 2 3 Next Last

If you are a hip hop lover or music aficionado, chances are you have heard of producer, TV/radio personality and mixtape legend, DJ Envy.

The celebrity, whose real name is Raashaun Casey, will be on Island this weekend for the ‘Ciroc Summer Swagg Part 2’ party at Rumbar tomorrow.

Hosted by Dunn Deal Entertainment, the bash will also feature music from local DJ Jugglin Jason and Boston-talent DJ OHMZ.

Mr Casey started mixing back in his high school days in Queens, New York and soon started developing a name for himself as the life of local parties.

He quickly climbed the ranks and got his shot to premier some of “the latest and most exclusive freestyles” by popular rappers like Jay-Z, 50 Cent and the L.O.X.

The DJ is experienced on both the club and exclusive party scene and has hosted celebrity bashes for artists such as Trey Songz, Jadakiss, DJ Khaled, Jermaine Dupri, and Janet Jackson. He has also been able to share his skills with audiences worldwide, from Japan to the Bahamas, and Jamaica to Australia, and everywhere in between.

He currently serves as the President and CEO of BLOK Entertainment, his own management and production company.

An event spokesman said DJ Envy was bound to take the local event to a new level, and encouraged people to come out to tomorrow night’s bash.

“It’s an international DJ, so we are doing something different for the Island. It’s not a regular party with regular DJs,” the spokesman said.

“DJ Envy is going to come in with his New York style and flavour and will give the people that come out something exciting and different that they aren’t used to. It’s not every day people go to experience the New York party scene or that a New York DJ comes here to the Island.

“We also have DJ OHMZ, a good friend of mine, who is coming in from Boston. He will give that up-North kind of flavour to the party, so it will be a mixture of different styles of DJs and music, everything from club mix, hip hop, R & B, reggae and soca, and a good mix of music all night.”

They will be promoting a new drink from premium vodka brand Ciroc, which is the main sponsor for the event. There will also be special early-bird drink prices happening from 9.30pm, when the doors open, until 11.30pm.

The dress code for the ‘Ciroc Summer Swagg Part 2’ party at Rumbar is “swagg and sexy”. Guests must be 21 years old and over to enter.

Tickets, $35, are sold at: Jazzy Boutique, Kit & Caboodle, Rumbar and Platinum Entertainment.
