DJ Bad Boy, formerly known as DJ Bwa Pen, or “fatwood,” meaning he gets the fire started, is from Mon Repos in Carrefour. Since 2008 he has been a fixture on the downtown Port-au-Prince DJ scene, creating remixes and mixes that are highly original and eclectic, ranging from hip-hop to reggae to soukous, zouk, and konpas, and even including flourishes of orchestral vodou music. This program contains a brief interview in kreyol with Bad Boy, who visited the Radyo Shak, but most of it showcases his mixes and a DJ set he played on the final Saturday night of the 2015 Ghetto Biennale.
