Zimbabwean club DJ and singer Ray Dizz (real name Rayhaan Jassat) is expected to leave on Wednesday for Las Vegas, United States, for the Global Miller Music Tour after winning this year’s edition of the Miller Genuine Sound Clash held in June.
The youthful wheel spinner, who shrugged off competition from both local and regional DJs to be capped the winner, will be in the US for a week.
For winning the competition, Ray Dizz clinched a one-year Miller Genuine Draft ambassadorial deal and an opportunity to feature in Dj Mag, a magazine that profiles the world’s 100 most popular disc jockeys. Ray Dizz’s manager and publicist Phil Chard expressed gratitude to Delta Beverages for handling all the administrative work and said Ray Dizz was raring to go.
“For the past few months Ray Dizz has been working tirelessly fine-tuning his act and is ready to represent the nation in US,” Chard said. “Since winning the Sound Clash he has been spending hours studying EDM music finding ways to incorporate it into his sets where he will also fuse local music to ensure that Zimbabwean artistes are exposed.”
RayDizz, a holder of an Art and Design degree from Totton College, Southampton, United Kingdom, once played at The Ministry of Sound in London before he went on to collaborate with several UK producers and artistes.
In 2011, he was selected to open up for American artiste Sean Kingston during his Harare show.
More accolades then followed as he was selected to be the first local DJ to feature on DStv’s popular reality show, Big Brother Africa Amplified 2012.
Locally, he has worked with renowned wheel spinners among them DJ Rax and DJ Rawse.
Ray Dizz is proving to be one of local’s most sought after DJs holding residencies at some of Harare’s popular night clubs like Mekka, Skyy Bar and H2O.
He is currently riding high with the single She Loving The Crew that features O-25 receiving fair play on local radio stations and clubs.
