Montego Bay-born ZJ Liquid is gearing up for the release of a new EP, 'Point of View', which will be released in the second week of August. 

"The EP will be dropping within the next two weeks, all new songs. I am working with producers such as Seanizzle, Dane Ray; I produce three of the tracks myself, I Octane produced a track. This EP is a great body of work that dancehall lovers will enjoy, and it will feature collabs with Beenie Man, Dane Ray, Dean Fraser, K Coneil," ZJ Liquid told Loop News

The EP is an unapologetic take on what 21st century music represents to the deejay-disc jockey-producer, a truly multi-talented individual who has redefined and continues to redefine the dancehall space.  

"Well the title of the EP means it's just my music from my view, my vibes...I am doing higher-quality, higher-level and different vibes of music but still representing for the ladies. I have grown and I am more experienced to a wider variety of music right now, so this will be reflected on the EP," the disc jockey whose real name is Michael Brissett, explained. 

The well-known disc jockey has not really been performing on the local circuit and will not be taking any bookings for the foreseeable future as the world continues to battle with the coronavirus pandemic. So he is relying on music videos to promote his songs in the local and international marketplace. 

With this in mind, he is releasing a new video for a single called 'Never Grow It Out', produced by Big Laugh Productions, this week. 

"The video will be available on all digital platforms as of this week. This song, 'Never Grow It Out' is definitely fi the ladies. The video has over 20 female dancers, and the ladies can get groovy with it whether at home, at the club, at the gym or even in their cars. The girls dem a mine," ZJ Liquid joked.

The disc jock has for almost two decades, built a brilliant career as one of Jamaica's top selectors/radio disc jockeys/producers/recording artistes. He was born and raised in the tourist mecca of Montego Bay, before relocating to Kingston in 2002. 

Like most radio DJs, ZJ Liquid got into music by 'spinning' on hometown sound systems, first as a DJ at Pier One (in Montego Bay) alongside Jason Russell on a 'sound' called In Excess. 

ZJ Liquid got his first break in radio when he joined  Hot 102 FM as DJ Lippo   from 1999–2000. Shortly after, his big break came when he was selected by IRIE FM owner the late Karl Young to work on ZIP FM.

He  founded H2O Records in 2004 and became a prominent producer, who has worked with the likes of Kranium and Tifa. In 2017, he did a 'Black and White' Vybz Kartel album. In 2018, he released his first EP, the aptly entitled 'Mobay Son' on the H2O Records/Johnny Wonder 21st imprints with collabs with Tifa, Demarco, Konshens, and Noah Powa. He has performed in countries such as the USA, Belgium, Slovakia, Spain, The Netherlands, and Austria.
