Fresh From Europe

Razz & Biggy and Serani recently returned to Jamaica fresh from a tour which saw them representing dancehall/reggae music throughout Europe and Trinidad. The European leg of the tour was quite extensive, it spanned a month, covered 19 venues across Germany, France, Sweden, Italy, Netherlands, Austria and Switzerland. There were also five (5) stops in Trinidad to complete this tour. Biggy represented the dynamic duo on this tour where he was the selected Disc Jockey for Reggae/Dancehall hit maker, Serani. The tour brought Serani and his music to his European fans and was equally an opportunity to sensitize the European market to the musical selections of Razz & Biggy. The task for Biggy was to bring the vibe & energy in each venue to a fever pitch before Serani’s Performances and support him during his sets, a task he delivered on night after night. Biggy explains that the experience in Europe is not one that can be compared to any other. The audiences in Europe are “very excited about dancehall and reggae music”. All nineteen venues were jam packed with capacity filled crowds at each stop all coming out to witness our (Jamaican) music, “even singing some of these songs word for word” continued Biggy. It is always an overwhelming experience to play in front of an audience, it is that more special when these patrons first language is not English. Biggy affirms that he is always humbled by the reception that the music receives in these territories and it is always an enticing offer to take trips of this nature to deliver musical sets to audiences that have a natural love for the music. A misconception that the disc jockey would like to dispel is that people tend to believe that only ‘one drop’ or conventional reggae artistes can attract a crowd throughout Europe. This he says is far from the truth. Our music has evolved and transcended most boundaries and as a result “the same songs that are crowd favourites in Jamaica are crowd favourites across most of Europe as well”, he comments.
