DJ FIDEL

DJ FIDEL Reggae Ambassador. Ahead of his time; others didnt understand what he was doing; DJ FIDEL single-handedly marketed Reggae to the world, a decade BEFORE Y2K

The dJ FideL Story! (para-phrased from a 2003, New York newspaper article) - dJ FidEL CAN NOT.. and DOES NOT MAKE CDs. HE NEVER DID. If you dont know the story, here is your lesson: Back in the eighties, when Hip-Hop mixtapes were taking off in New York City, USA, Italian and African promoters, and street-vendors already had good Hip-Hop DJs like DJ Clue, Kid Capri and Funkmaster Flex on mixtapes

ORIGINALLY RECORDED IN THE YEAR 1999.

dJ FidEL is the KING!
He was the first Reggae Selecta to use the letters "D.J." in front of his name. He was also the first Reggae Selector on the first Reggae Mix-CD, anywhere in the world! Chris Chin, CEO of VP Records, calls him
“The Innovator”!

dJ FidEL basically invented THE "Reggae MIX-tape"!
Back in the 80's when sound systems in Jamaica and from all over the world were just playing records without mixing/blending them properly, (and in a clash, selectors would just curse out their opposing selectors and basically the sound who had a comedian as a selector or played the most dub plates would win the clash). . . dJ FidEL toured the world with MTV and KRS-1/Boogie Down Productions. dJ FidEL was the only man in the world, playing Reggae the right way and he had a certain way of breaking a song to mainstream, that no other DJ had. People started to refer to dJ FidEL as “The Bob Marley” of Dancehall Mixes” and all the major American recording companies, from Michael Jackson Productions/Sony to Universal Music, started requesting dJ FidEL’s guidance in their production, marketing and release strategies. As dJ FidEL travelled to numerous venues around the world, to play on different systems owned by these various night clubs and concert promoters, street vendors gave these promoters blank cassettes and asked that they record dJ FidEL while he played. Most of these vendors were African and Italian immigrants and dJ FidEL didn’t even know he was being recorded. These vendors started copying and selling these mixes at a rate of Trillions . . . (that’s with a “T”).

Retirement!
Back then, most Jamaicans didn't understand the difference between a mix and an album, then when music, in general, WORLDWIDE, went from cassette to CD, and the vendors transferred their dJ FidEL party cassettes to CD to sell them, a few oblivious Jamaican producers thought dJ FidEL was recording their songs to give to vendors to sell as an album, so dJ FidEL just got frustrated with the ignorance, and he planned to quit. dJ FidEL wasn't even making any money from this. He wasn't even selling them- the street vendors were.

The Millennium!
So Y2K was approaching and while touring The world with MTV and KRS-1/Boogie Down Productions, dJ FidEL just got fed up with the illiteracy and he retired, just around the millennium. . .

Now look at what’s happening today: the whole world is doing what KiNG dJ FidEL did 30 years ago! What's even more crazy is that the same producers are now starting to pay these new DJ's, asking the DJ's to include their songs in these DJ mixes!


YES FIDEL, YES FIDEL!
