ZJ Liquid


As his name suggests, ZJ Liquid does it all, flowing seamlessly amongst his multiple roles—selector, radio personality, supporter of new talent, producer, MC and artist. With his new album, Mobay Son, the man born Michael Brissett steps into his own as a respected lyricist, demonstrating his versatility over the course of 12 tracks, including classics like ‘Wifey Walk Out’ and featuring guest spots by Tifa, Demarco, and Konz—as well as Noah Powa, who appears on the track ‘Dem Nuh Like We’ with its memorable line “Keep a smile pon me face, just to trick the pussy dem.”

Liquid has progressed through many stages, overcoming any and all resistance along the way. “Some
people may say ‘You ah do too much’, Liquid states. “But Jah bless we to do it, or we woulda falter along the way.” The ‘Zip Jock’ who’s famous for his next-level mixes on the top Jamaican radio station Zip FM was once known as ‘Lippo’ when he was coming up in Montego Bay.

Every Wednesday he used to hold a vibes at Pier One, chatting on the mic with various local sound
systems. Eventually he got the chance to play music on Hot 102 radio in MoBay. He took the name
Liquid when he relocated to Kingston with the inception of Zip. Since then he’s evolved into more than
just an internationally known DJ—who has spun all over the world and live on BET—he’s also a top
producer and an artist in his own right.

Since establishing the H20 label in 2004 with the French Vanilla riddim, Liquid has emerged as one
of Jamaica’s top producers, with top riddims like ‘Good Book’ and ‘Fix Up’ running the dancehall. Now
‘Mobay Son’ is here to cement his legacy as a hit making artist deserving of maximum respect in all
aspect. Distributed By Johnny Wonder Distribution.
