TNG MUZIK SOUND SYSTEM SELECTOR DJ ALI PATCH

(Kingston, Jamaica)

DJ ALI PATCH

DJ ALI PATCH

Stephen Hayles Jnr is a phenomenal entertainer and musical connoisseur, but he's more popularly known as Ali Patch, the DJ. His signature patch over his right eye makes him easily recognizable in any crowd or on any stage, spinning all genres of music for every age.

Many have asked, "Why the patch? Is it for fashion? Did he lose an eye?" Well, Ali Patch is a cancer survivor and the battle with the disease at age 3 in his eye is what makes him such a fighter in life today.

Born in St. Andrew, in the beautiful island of Jamaica, Ali grew up in the Duhaney Park community with his parents and 11 siblings since his birth on June 7, 1982. A home filled with music, Ali was sure to end up in the business, no matter his career choice. He even attended Meadowbrook High School alongside classmate Sheldon Lawrence, now known as Aidonia. His main influence came from his father Stephen Hayles Snr, whom everyone knows better by the moniker Father Bunny and as a former owner of top sound system Bass Odyssey.

Ali was taught by his father to play 45's and LP's on Bass Odyssey's sound system since the tender age of 8 years old. He was very small so he had to stand on crates to reach the turntables back then. By the time he turned 14, Ali was playing his father's sound system professionally and was also hired to work in Aquarius Records, which was owned by his family as well. After high school, Ali enrolled in a studio engineering course at Celestial Sounds (Kings of Kings Studio) where he mastered the art of music production, editing and remixing.

He was so good at the craft that his teacher, Stephen Ventura, made him an apprentice to Cordel "Skatta" Burrell and even assisted with the productions of some classic dancehall tracks like Capleton's "Crazy Look" and Cecile's "Changes". However, a rift between Father Bunny and the other owners of Bass Odyssey caused a split in Bass Odyssey in 1995 and the sound became known as Bass Odyssey The Next Generation, with Ali being it's youngest DJ.

He was able to tour the world playing for Bass Odyssey The Next Generation to places like the US, Canada, Japan, Guyana, Belize and other Caribbean islands like Antigua, Bahamas, St Kitts, Barbados, Cayman Islands, Martinique, Trinidad and Tobago several times. Ali has even helped Bass Odyssey The Next Generation earn the title of clash champion in many sound clashes with the most memorable ones being in Trinidad versus the defending champions Black Kat, who had previously won 3 consecutive world clashes in 2003 and the other in Guyana to defend their title in 2005 against Trinidad's then number 1 sound called Matsimela.

Soon thereafter, sound clashes were beginning to get fewer in numbers so Ali teamed up with his younger brother, DJ Kitt, to tackle a different avenue in the music business by forming TNG Muzik. Party sound systems were vastly growing, therefore Ali knew that in order to drop the stigma of being a clashing sound, they had to show their versatility by promoting TNG Muzik to a different crowd, mainly from the uptown sections of Kingston, Jamaica.



As TNG Muzik gained notoriety, Ali Patch steered the sound to fill slots on big shows like the Tempo network launch in 2005 and several appearances on Fully Loaded. Ali's plans were finally coming into place as he set out to achieve many things with TNG Muzik and never lost sight of their goals. They still provided enjoyment to patrons at downtown street dances and country dances in rural areas but TNG Muzik's main target ranged from Sweet 16's to senior citizens celebrating 50th anniversaries.

Eventually, as the entertainment scene changed again, and TNG Muzik was now classed as an uptown sound, both brothers decided to branch off and launched their solo careers on April 12, 2010. Ali's aim then was to be known otherwise from an uptown DJ and tour the world, doing what he does best.

Hence, DJ Ali Patch became a household name and a professional DJ, catering to any crowd, anywhere. Sometimes, Ali would do 3 and 4 parties each night, which he easily and single-handedly would manage, given his intense background growing up on the wings of Bass Odyssey and Aquarius Records. He also became known for his innovative remixes which was due to his studio knowledge as well as amazing commercials showing off the clarity of his voice.

From weekly events like Exstatic Fridays to monthly events like Month End Fridays at Chicken N Tings, Ali Patch can be seen and heard almost everywhere. He's appeared at major events like ATI in 2010 and 2011, Levels and Shipwrecked; weekly events like Weddy Weddy Wednesdays, Passa Passa Wednesdays and Hot Mondays; and played in popular nightclubs like Quad, Club Privilege, Club Impulse and Limelight. So far, Ali Patch has toured the US and Caribbean as well as become one of the top choices for corporate functions due to his professionalism and knowledge of the business.

DJ Ali Patch is also widely popular for his in demand mix tapes. His Mixplosion series is a fusion of dancehall, hip-hop and remixes. The Shub Out series is what Ali uses to help promote and expose new music and artists. All his mix tapes are always 100% clean and can be played around the young and the old.

Be on the lookout for many more outstanding achievements from this talented DJ who caters to every musical taste palettes. His goal is to always achieve more and to be a great husband and father. Due to his determination and fighting spirit, DJ Ali Patch never gives up.
