Meet WALSHY FIRE the new face of Island 360.Whether hyping up a crowd of discerning reggae enthusiasts with expert selections or introducing European festival crowds to the meaning of “Pon De Floor”, Walshy Fire has truly earned the title of Global Ambassador of Music & Culture.
Highly renowned and respected throughout the Caribbean music universe as an MC and selector for Miami’s Grammy winning Black Chiney Sound System, Walshy can now also be found on the world’s biggest stages as the master of ceremonies for Diplo’s genre-bending dancehall carnival, Major Lazer.
Throughout 2013 he will be touring alongside Major Lazer. As America’s #1 DJ for the English, Dutch, and French speaking islands; and as an ambassador to all things West Indian, Walshy Fire joining the Island 360 team just makes sense. Walshy is a triple threat when it comes to music: Club DJ, event planner, and producer working with artists such as John Legend, Estelle, David Banner, Rihanna, etc.). Walshy is known as Miami’s “Prime Minister” and also as “The Dean of the Culture Department” for his unbelievable knowledge and understanding of cultures all over the world.
Walshy Fire is one of the very, very few djs that no matter where or who is in the party, he has something to satisfy everyone. Earning his Masters in Journalism has also helped in his idealistic way of comprehending how everyone is different, but in so many ways can enjoy the same things. Despite his meteoric success, Walshy remains grounded about his achievements and clearly loves making and playing music above the accolades it brings.
