Star FM’s Drive Time presenter and turntablist Otis Fraser will tomorrow night rock his fans at the official reopening of Club H2O, a fairly new club, at Borrowdale’s Sam Levy’s Village.
Fraser will be rocking the decks alongside Deon Fulton aka DJ Smoove.
Now under new management team called Event Worx, Club H2O is an upmarket establishment which accommodates at least 800 revellers. Judging by the new set-up and quality sound system, the new H2O is set to take clubbing scene to another level through hosting parties and a line-up of renowned DJs.
Some of the DJs who are set to showcase at the club include Andy X, who has been rocking dance floors in KwaZulu-Natal down south; Dino Bravo, also based in South Africa, as well as Durban’s finest Cndo.
But all eyes will be on Otis, affectionately known as The Flow on radio and the man behind the popular Flow Tyme Drive Show. The Flow is expected to set the bar high for other DJs.
It is always a joy to listen to The Flow especially when he throws down some serious mixes, be it R’n’B, hip-hop, house or dancehall.
When it comes to deejaying in Zimbabwe you cannot leave out The Flow. Like his stage name suggests, music literally flows like water downstream and every track is a hit. Those who watched his show on Channel O Party Zone will agree that The Flow represented Zimbabwe well and had all the Big Brother Africa – The Chase housemates on the dance floor.
Interestingly, The Flow will be first DJ to feature on the line-up and perhaps set the tone for what music lovers can expect every weekend whether its old skool or new skool.
Over the years, The Flow has been staging gigs in London and Leeds over the years. A part-time producer, he shot to fame as a radio and club DJ in the early 90s, having been a hit on then Radio 3 (Power FM) and ZBCTV’s Teen Scene.
He left Zimbabwe for South Africa where he produced “Tsodiyo” and “Final Battle” for the late Lebo Mathosa of Boom Shaka and Bongo Muffin, respectively.
He then moved to Botswana where he continued with television broadcasting and radio work. He has also contributed to the pioneering projects of other producers, including Skizo.
It is always a joy to listen to “The Flow” be it in the club or on radio. He returned to join Zimbabwe’s leading radio Star FM, the first commercial station to hit the airwaves, where he hosts the “Flow Tyme Drive Show”. Lyndon Kapuya of Event Worx said the company will continue hosting big events as they did with Mafikizolo.
“We are relaunching on the 1st of November 2013 and have a lot of exciting acts that we will be hosting from Club H2O as we go into the festive season. We have put together an event guide with artistes and DJs both local and international who confirmed to come to the club and help us launch it with a bang,” he said.
