DESPITE heavy rains which pelted Kingston last Saturday, Monument, Renaissance Disco's 25th anniversary party, attracted a large turnout.

Held at the New Mas Camp, the event saw fellow sound systems Stone Love and Coppershot joining the celebration alongside Renaissance and guest selector DJ Babey Drew from VH1's Love and Hip Hop.

"It's an overwhelming feeling for us to have reached a milestone of 25 years. It feels like the greatest achievement, a dream come true," said Delano Thomas, a co-founder and part-owner of Renaissance.

Once the rain subsided, the party kicked off at 1:00 am and lasted for three hours.

A number of persons from the entertainment and corporate sectors partied with the Renaissance crew, including businessman Gary Matalon, music producer and selector Richard 'Richie D' Martin, deejays Bling Dawg, Bugle, Agent Sasco, and music producers Jordan McClure and Robert Livingston.

Thomas said more events are planned to commemorate Renaissance's silver anniversary. These include a series of parties over the Heroes Weekend in Ocho Rios in October; the annual Renaissance Thanksgiving party on November 28 in Miami; and the All-White Christmas Eve party in Kingston.
