Fire K Venom stands out in Kingston


When it comes to the world of dancehall selectors in the Corporate Area, the name Fire K Venom stands out.


Born Triston Riley, he grew up in Marlie Mount, St Catherine, with five siblings before moving to Red Ground in the parish as a teenager.

Growing up in the area, he fell in love with the sound-system culture. He graduated from Tacius Golding High School, Brown's Hall, and went on to HEART to learn a skill, but it was music that was his first love.

He inherited his love for sound systems from his father, Denzil 'Tibby Dread' Riley, who owned a sound system in the late 60s.

He began officially as a dancehall selector in 2000, earning props on Power Ranger sound system, then Crystal Image sound.

After parting ways with Crystal Image, he and DJ Pasco Daego joined forces with Poison Dart sound. His legend grew as a sound-killing selector when he annihilated Nuclear Don Dadda at a clash in Denbigh, Clarendon.

In 2006, he joined up with Venom International from west Kingston.

In 2013, he helped to launch Venomous Squad, young selectors who wanted to learn the game.

"I always find it necessary to teach the youths how to do the music. I have played in the 14 parishes and I want to share my knowledge with others," he said.

You can find Fire K Venom working at Monday Monday, Breadlane and Charles Street; Bitter Tuesday, Wellington and North Streets and; Chemical Wednesdays. You can follow him on Instagram @firekvenom1986.
