DJ SLow-Motion the CEO of Motion Vybz Sound, LLC

Andrew Dixon is the owner and operator of record label Motion Vybz Sound, LLC and primarily goes by the name of DJ Slow-motion. Before officially establishing the company in the Spring of 2020, Slow-motion was a New York City based local DJ who performed in many night clubs, concerts and venues across the City and the United States. He was also a former disc jockey of various entertainment companies such as, Future Squad Music Group, Outlaw Sound, and also served as an internet radio host/DJ of the “Evening People Show” on Free Up Radio. While at Free Up Radio, motion interviewed many of dancehall’s entertainers such as Tarrus Riley, Kiprich, Teflon, Black Ryhno, Mr. Easy and many others as well as some of New York City’s upcoming and established dancehall DJ’s.

Prior to becoming a disc jockey Mr. Dixon worked as a local server at the popular Jamaican restaurant called ‘The Door’ while also attending New York City College of Technology where he studied Liberal Arts.  It was while working at the infamous dine in restaurant that he and another fellow employee had a musical debate about who is more prowess as it pertains to music, which then formed into a friendly sound clash.  Being that the clash was more of a R&B based selection of music Andrew sought out a name that would stand out and appeal more to the females of the crowd, hence DJ Slow-motion became his stage name. 

After realizing how talented and witty he was at entertaining the crowd with his selection of music and his gift of gab; a trait he learned from his mother, Slow-motion decided to delved even deeper in the idea of becoming a professional disc jockey.  He spent an immense amount of time honing his skills and learning the craft of music selection by practicing and also viewing other disc jockeys such as the likes of David Rodigan, Squingy, Funk Master Flex, and his cousin [Chris].

It was while working at ‘The Door’ that Mr. Dixon received the opportunity of working on the yearly event, ‘Groovin in the Park’. A Reggae Rhythm and Blues concert held at Roy Wilkinson Park in Queens, New York.  Through his responsibilities as Food and Beverage Manger/Handler for the artists at the event, he had the chance of working with as well as having direct interaction with some of Dancehall, Reggae, and R&B brightest musical stars such as Beres Hammond, Capelton, Beenie Man, Chronixx, Luciano, Marcia Griffiths, Judy Mowatt, Burning Spear, Ken Boothe, Freddie McGregor, Mavado, Air Supply, TGT, Michael Bolton, Gladys Knight, Patti Labelle, and many others.  The experience and knowledge he gained from this moment in time would equip him for the path he would later venture on. 

Winter of 2019 Slow-motion made the unique decision to venture into the world of musical production. He then teamed up with music producer Beppo and released his first official project called ‘High Riddim’ which featured the voices of G Starr, Zingflash, Brando Caviir, Sulfa and Mayborn. However, in the spring of 2020, the year in which the Corona Virus would strike at full force and the normal schedule of humanity would abruptly come to a sudden stand still, ‘motion’ was presented with the unexpected opportunity to manage upcoming dancehall artist Nicholas Bartley most popularly known as “Fully Bad”.  After the signing of Fully Bad with Motion Vybz Sound, the two immediately began to work on Fully’s first official studio album entitled “Born Fi Dweet” which was released October of that same year.  The first official single entitled ‘Born fi Dweet’ was released soon after and immediately gained the ears of new fans while reassuring Fully’s current devotees that the freshly inked deal was looking very promising.    The results of their first collaborative effort began to show a significant change in the dancehall artist career after sealing an endorsement from a California, U.S cannabis company based primarily from the results of his second hit single ‘Airplane Mood’, which depicts the cultural aspect of the smoking of marijuana; also produced by DJ Slow-motion.  With their third visual release called ‘Glue’, Fully’s popularity continued to rise as well as his viewership numbers. Instantly becoming a mega hit ‘Glue’ has amassed over two million streams on the YouTube platform alone.  The two are currently working on their second studio album set to be released in 2022.
