The recent staging of the retro party series 90s Recall was an entertaining affair. Held at the Triple Century parking lot in New Kingston, the event featured the musical offerings of DJ Spuggy and DJ Shella of Renaissance, DJ Nicco, and St Ann's Hyperactive Sound.

Co-promoter Fabian O'Hara spoke about the overall vibe and energy.

“Each staging we try to tweak a little here and a little there to ensure that patrons get value for their money. I think we found a very nice combination with our DJs this time around. The crowd was electric and that feel-good vibe was very much present throughout the night,” O'Hara told the Jamaica Observer.

He spoke about the choice of DJs for the event.

“Selecting the deejays for this event is a very difficult task. We went for DJ Nicco, a crowd favourite at most events; he is featured. Based on the demography that we are trying to appeal to, which is everyone, we brought in the Renaissance Disco; young guns DJ Spuggy and DJ Shella. I also do events on the north coast and I realised that the event has a fan base from that part of the island which travels to Kingston for the event, especially when Hyperactive Sound is playing. So we brought them into the city for their second stint,” he said.

The 90s Recall event was first held in 2016. The co-promoter gave an insight into the growth of the series over the past two years.

“The event grows with each staging in patronage. We are creating our own identity and cutting out a decent demography for ourselves. Sponsors are now reaching out to us to be a part of the movement, and we are grateful for each and every one of them because the evolution is made a whole lot easier with the sponsors involved, especially based on the appeal of the event for look and offering,” he said.

Entertainers Tarrus Riley, Agent Sasco, Mykal Rose, and Bugle were among the huge turnout of patrons.

The co-promoter was pleased.

“What stood out for me was the support from the entertainment fraternity. Taurus Riley, Agent Sasco, Mykal Rose, Bugle, and producer Seanizzle were among those present. It was a joy to see how much they were enjoying the event. The feel-good nature of the event and the longevity of the music era was quite evident,” O'Hara added.
