Splurt Zillionz, more noticed by his nickname Splurt, which comes from Jamaican slang, meaning: to leave in a hurry, is known to “split” in an instant. Hence the nickname given to him when visiting the island. No stranger to the music industry, Splurt has been experimenting with different sounds since the 90’s. His love for electronic and reggae and then mixing the two together turned him into a very busy DJ. From going on tour, to playing up to five nights a week! In the summer of 2001, he made his first hit record. So it is no surprise today, he’s scratching records with some of EDM’s best DJs.
Associated with Major Lazer, having met the guys in the early stages of their careers, Splurt’s creativity and tech savvy air got him noticed by the management team. He turned Major Lazer into a character, which was then placed on paper bills. The Major Lazer dollars were given out at their shows, becoming highly desired. This ended up advancing Splurt into becoming their Media Manager. His understanding of the digital ecosystem and ability to translate anything he sees and adjusting it into social media content, is a valuable tool for anyone to have in todays world.
As an innovator, Splurt uses social media and new technology in ways that make him an asset. His most treasured and most recently discovered asset however, is his humor. With his unique personality, Splurt feels right at home with all the other interesting people on the inter-webs. Splurt believes in being yourself and taking risks. He doesn’t care what others think or say. He’s too busy making people laugh and taking pride in that.
