CANADIAN producer and disc jockey Lady Trey says her first project, the Celebration Riddim PE, has been very successful since its debut in February.
“The Celebration Riddim receives excellent feedback. DJs spin it all over the world – from the US, Nigeria and the UK. People are enjoying the different tracks on the EP. The flows are increasing so I’m happy with the result so far,” she told the Jamaica Observer.
Mixed and mastered by Kloudixmusik, the project was released under his own TreyCan Recordz in association with Demon Productions.
The dancehall compilation features six artists – Don Mafia, So Vile, Gaps 7G, Wonaji, Zylan and Gyal Ediot.
DJ Lady Trey has been in the music business for four years. She uses her international platform as CEO of TreyCan FM780 Radioan online radio station in Edmonton, Canada that pays homage to Jamaican music.
DJ Lady Trey, whose first name is Gavia Alonge, said she faced many challenges in the male-dominated industry but was determined to pursue her passion.
“It can be very trying at times. Despite being an underdog, I stay strong and focused. I built my own platform and my own label so I didn’t have to manage [any] selfish man or woman for that matter. I can focus on my goals and dreams without the added drama and stress of being on someone else’s platform, radio station. I am consistent, professional and determined so TreyCanRadio FM780, TreyCan Recordz and all the other TreyCan productions that come in the future will thrive because it all comes from a good, clean place, sweetheart,” she said.
The self-taught producer said she loves a range of music, and that’s what inspires her productions.
“I like artists who sing with their soul, like the late great Whitney Houston and Amy Winehouse. I like music that has substance. I like music that can make you feel better. I like music that has a message,” she said.
DJ Lady Trey has high hopes for the future.
“I see myself more [knowledgeable] in the music industry as a businesswoman. I will be more experienced as a female radio host and DJ, music producer and artist manager. I want to grow my fan base in more parts of the world. I want my platform to always remain an outlet to elevate and highlight [up-and-coming] artists from Jamaica,” she added.
