The Illest DJ Fou4 – Bio (@DjFou4)

DJ FOU4Andre Antonio Hines A.K.A The Illest DJ Fou4 is a selector who plays a variety of genres: Reggae, Dancehall, Hip-hop, R&B, Soca, Alternative, EDM and Retro.

He hails from the beautiful island of Jamaica, in the parish of St. Thomas, and was born at the Princess Margaret Hospital to mother Evett Davidson, also called Joan, and father Ronald Hines (who use to select music as well). At birth, Andre was four pounds and two ounces, hence the name DJ Fou4. Initially he was called Daddy 4 and then over time, as he began to advance in his craft, he adopted the title: The Illest DJ Fou4.

He grew up with his mother and 6 siblings (3 brothers and 3 sisters) in White Hall, St. Thomas. One by one all his brothers and sisters eventually migrated leaving him with his mother, aunties, uncles, cousins and grandparents. The first school he attended was the Flemmings Basic School in Seaforth; he then went on to Seaforth Primary. In the 6th grade, he successfully passed his common entrance for Morant Bay High School. DJ Fou4 was on the track and field team for a short while but all his interest was in music, not just listening and playing it, but also dancing to it. He was an excellent dancer and at lunch break and after school he and his friends would play the Bug Riddim and he would do the bogle and Jerry Springer dance to wow the girls.

According to Fou4, “high school was the best part of growing up.” He was a member of a dance group called Krazy Squad. They entered the JCDC festival and partook in the community’s Unity Vibes Police Youth Club. They were successful by all accounts and were awarded with trophies, medals, certificates and cash prizes.

The Illest DJ Fou4 started playing music professionally in 2012. It all started when his friend Gary (also known as Picture Frame) allowed him to play on his sound system. It was then that he learned to mix and blend the right songs, paying attention to things like tempo and BPM (beats per minute). At first, his family was not supportive of his career in music. He recalls both his aunt and mom constantly telling him that, “music should only be a hobby, not a career.” He was not moved by their opinions, instead, he kept on working on his craft and as a result he improved so much so that he is now a resident DJ on Stylz FM, Portland’s #1 radio station. Now his mother is one of his biggest fans. She is always tuning in to his radio show and gives him constructive criticism. The Illest DJ Fou4 is on air every Thursday from 5 to 9 PM and again on Saturday nights on the DETOUR show from 8 PM to midnight.

The sky is the limit and DJ Fou4 is well aware of that fact. As a result, he is currently working on dominating the airwaves, bringing his unique vibe and energy to his audience. Stylz FM airs on the following dials across Portland and surrounding Parishes: 96.1, 96.5 and 96.7 FM. In addition to playing on the radio, DJ Fou4 also does regular mixes (mixtapes) for both street and digital distribution.
