DJ FOLS is a DJ who has been around for a while and is based out of Brooklyn, NY. He specializes in all types of music from African tunes (Nigerian, Ghana, Coupe Decale, Soukous), to current hip-hop music to old school jams, reggae/dancehall, soca. These are just to name a few. He does it all – weddings, birthday parties, parades, baby showers, in-house parties and is definitely a regular on the club scene. As a professional DJ and also someone who grew up in a music-oriented household, he has perfected the art of assessing his crowd and selecting and belting out tunes that keep them on their feet until the “party done”.
