About SWEET V
Like Horace Andy once sang, "Love is the light" - and Sweet V refuses to stop shining. There is nothing but good vibes and livity when she's in a dance and the people feel the positivity each and every time.
This Miami-born, Brooklyn-based vinyl connoisseur is a staple within New York's reggae community. She's taken over the airwaves as a guest at every radio show in the area, including East Village Radio (Jamaica Rock), BBOX Radio (Shanty Town/Watch This Sound), WNYU (Tunnel One/Hip-Hop And Her Family). It also can't go without mentioning her numerous turns as guest selector all over Brooklyn and Manhattan (Coney Island Reggae On The Boardwalk (WKCR), Al Paragus HQ, Downtown Top Ranking with Deadly Dragon Sound, Mobile Mondays at Bowery Electric).
Sweet V is also co-founder of the "Us Girls" female DJ trio, alongside Natasha Diggs and DJ Gizmo "Vintage Honey", who together have had the East Village going nuts for quite some time. Aside from that, she's held it down solo on Tuesday nights at Spur Tree, one of the best Jamaican restaurants in Manhattan.
More recently, she has been promoting and DJ'ing a monthly reggae party with selectors JonnyGoFigure and Jay Syro called Backayard Sessions out in Crown Heights (739 Franklin) - in February 2015 the event will have had its one-year anniversary! You can also find her every Sunday night with King Lion Sound and The Den All-Stars at Pure Vibes Sundaze in East Flatbush, the center of Brooklyn's Caribbean enclave.
New York City is constantly abounding with DJ's, but not all of them play from the heart. When Sweet V is on the set, you know that love and passion bleeds through the sound!
