Charles ‘COLOMBIAN’ Villarreal is a born South American native with Caribbean roots in Trinidad and St. Vincent. Out of favorable circumstances Colombian found himself to be a proud citizen of St. Vincent and the Grenadines – home to the #1 Radio Station Hot 97.1.
Colombian’s ascent to a full time radio announcer and DJ Sound system co-founder was not an overnight story.
Colombian entered the music industry working alongside Alex ‘kubiyashi’ Barnwell, in various ventures and events. Since 2008 he has held job posts such as, Stage Manager, Artiste Liason, and Head technical band Grip – until he finally decided to brave it as a recording artiste. Recording proved to be challenging but not unfruitful, as his voice can be heard on popular riddims in St. Vincent and the region.
Nonetheless Colombian’s true passion was always to be a radio broadcasting personality. Taking a hiatus from recording he ventured into broadcasting, founding a sound system with one of St. Vincent’s youngest upcoming DJ’s – Captain John.
Today #TEAMENERGYOVERLOAD – is a proud resident of Hot 97.1, bringing a youthful flavor and atmosphere to the legendary radio station. The dynamics of the group @EnergyOverload are peculiar with a Colombian born hype man, and a Jamaican born DJ; This synergy of cultures and talents brings a unique experience like no other, a vibe like no other and most important an energy like no other!
