I was extremely pleased and honored when Duane Herbert aka DJ Kold Fuzion contacted me to create portraits for his Vyzion Radio profile.  Duane was recently provided with a platform to showcase his talents by Vyzion Radio an online radio station headquartered in Lincolnton, NC with locations in New York, Philadelphia and California.

Duane Herbert demonstrated an early interest in music and together with five friends formed JAM Promotions and held parties in his native Trinidad & Tobago.

Duane moved to Brooklyn, NY and soon after joined the US Military; while enlisted, he dj'd in the Republic of South Korea.  DJ'ing was a natural extension for Duane having been heavily influenced and surrounded by music in his family; his father DJ Buff, a well liked Brooklyn Chef and DJ; Duane’s brother, Reggae artiste Honor Rebel Jah Humbly, also hails from Brooklyn, NY.

Duane's professional moniker, Kold Fuzion succinctly implies: a fusion and versatility with all genres of music, blending a myriad of sounds on his playlists to create the ultimate party experience; he displays a tenacity for all things musical and utilizes his Caribbean heritage as a foundation and his musical passion as a catalyst, to bring good vibes to his sets.  Having attended one of his sets, I observed the manner in which he engages his audience and his ability to gauge and elicit a positive listener  response, in other words, he gets the crowd going and keeps them moving.

Currently located in Columbia, SC, this musical maven is positioned to become an entertainment behemoth with brand recognition.  Realizing that disc jockeying no longer entails just the one's and two's, but has morphed to include the latest technological advancements; Kold Fuzion maintains current dj'ing technology while continuing to hone and augment his skills as an entertainer; he is a consummate professional as is evidenced by the relationships he has built and maintains in and around the Columbia area.

When Jah asked me to do a photo shoot for his album cover, to say I was honored would be more than a slight understatement.  Jah is an absolute joy to be around; quiet and good-natured with an ample and impressive knowledge of history and contemporary events, which he draws from while continuing to hone his performances.

Brooklyn, NY reggae artiste Darryl Herbert’s nom de guerre Honor –Rebel Jah Humbly, accurately and aptly embodies his personality and singing style.  With his musical band “Judgement “(sic), he has an impressive amount of songs to his credit, including the electrifying, controversial and debatable “Tumbling Down” produced by Judgment Productions (sic) for Gold Cup Records.

Jah first became interested in “conscious” reggae while attending high school in his native Trinidad.  After moving to the U.S. he began performing with “Judgement” (sic) a reggae band formed in 1999 with founding members Ras I-Jah aka Eternalfiyah and Ras Sharky.  

Honor-Rebel Jah Humbly has remained as his name incisively implies, humble and staying the course of bringing his message in his music; he captivates his audience with his soulful and syncopated cadence while showcasing lyrical prowess with a potent mix of self proclaimed militant sound and righteous fury.
