BUSCEMI MUSIC SERIES #3 | JILLIONAIRE
With over 20 years of experience, Jillionaire has been on the forefront of Caribbean music. Born Christopher Leacock in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad, the globe-trotting DJ first discovered music by listening to his parent’s extensive collection of 80s cassettes, ranging from Olivia Newton John, Santana, and Prince. Staying true to his Trinidadian roots, Jillionaire fuses original caribbean rhythms with club beats.
Taking his passion for music to the next level, in 2014 Jillionaire launched his Brooklyn based music label, Feel Up Records, and has been hosting his Chicken and Beer parties at Winter Music Conference in Miami since 2010.
Jillionaire has been touring worldwide with Major Lazer since 2009 and has performed at festivals all across North America and Europe. He continues to establish himself as an innovative and creative producer, having worked on singles with a host of global collaborators.
