As a DJ, Gerrybeats says, " I don't always play music to be creative or productive. Sometimes l play to heal and to process difficult emotions. Playing music has become a way for me to connect with my inner self in the most intimate way possible, either by confronting myself or observing. I believe in myself by being the DJs healer of self."
Answering to whether Zim music is being received in China he said, "I think a small circle of Zim music is being received especially in the club scene. For instance Jah Prayzah’s music it has been received well because of his numerous collaborations within other African artists and abroad, it’s rotation in the club is quite heavy. As well as Zim Dancehall has been received generally in & outside the club by foreigners."
