Versatile singer / songwriter/ producer RONALD JUNIOR FRITZ (aka RANDY VALENTINE) hails from country sides of Clarendon in Jamaica. As a child growing up he was heavily influenced by his fathers love for music, which was expressed mostly via a sound sytem that his father owned called SHINING STAR SOUND.
 
He started off his music career in 2005 (2 years after emigrating with his family to the UK) as a local DJ, where he used to perform in clubs in and out of London which led to him working for two years on a online Radio Station SWITCH 106 where he went by the moniker DJ KWES.

His second EP “Still Pushing” (produced by JOE ARIWA, son of legendary MAD PROFESSOR) was released the following year in 2015, and went straight to the top of the Itunes reggae charts again – confirming that Randy was not a passing sensation and was definitely here to stay.
 
2015 was also the year in which Randy started to explore different genres of music, as he featured on MAJOR LAZER’s EP: “Peace is the mission” (No1 on Billboard Dance / Electronic albums), and also collaborated on one of the most talked about musical projects of the year: WU TANG’s unique album copy of “Once upon a time in Shaolin”.
 
His latest project is a 19 track mixtape entitled “RADIO MUSIC” (which is similar in concept to his debut mixtape) recorded over a series of classic hiphop instrumentals mostly from the late 90’s (often considered one of the “golden ages” of Hip-Hop). When asked why he chose these specific instrumentals his answer was plainly ”They inspire me to inspire others”.
 
The raptape was premiered to the world end of January on BBC 1XTRA by SEANI B.
 
The feedback from the mixtape (which is available for free download) has been astounding so far! Randy is currently in the studio preparing his debut album and will be touring both the US and Europe the Summer of 2016!
