ROCK THE BOAT (SPECIAL EDITION)
Rock the Boat is back with the heavy hitting global sounds of Jillionaire and Uproot Andy rocking along side Cobras own Ohso and Florista. This ones a special one cause we’re celebrating the born day of our very own BLKKMORRIS.
Jillionaire (Feel Up Records / Major Lazer)
With over 20 years of experience, Jillionaire has been on the forefront of reggae music. Born Christopher Leacock in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad, the globe-trotting DJ first discovered music by listening to his parents' extensive collection of 80s cassettes, ranging from Olivia Newton John, Santana, and Prince. As a teenager, he began DJing for reggae and dancehall group Zion One Sound System, strictly playing vinyls. He then moved on to join Radioactive Sound System and worked closely with Kwesi “Hype Hoppa” Hopkinson.
Staying true to his Trinidadian roots, Jillionaire fuses original Caribbean rhythms of soca with dancehall beats. Along with Diplo and Walshy Fire, he is a member of the electronic music group Major Lazer.
Jillionaire has been touring worldwide with Major Lazer since 2009 including performing at festivals such as Coachella, Trinidad Carnival, CMJ Music Marathon, Electric Daisy Carnival, South by Southwest, and Mad Decent Block Party. Jillionaire continues to establish himself as an innovative and creative producer.
Uproot Andy (Que Bajo)
Andy first began making beats during his single digit years as a kid in Canada. This early passion eventually grew into a lifelong dedication to music, drawing inspiration from an eclectic selection of styles he has exposed himself to through the years
