Daydreams, Yush deliver
DESPITE Saturday afternoon's heavy rains, the Smirnoff Dream Weekend party series continued with Daydreams White Sands in Negril. The tousled hair and soiled white clothing were quickly forgotten once the patrons entered Wonderland.
There was barely enough space to walk around inside as patrons showed off their latest dance moves. While the majority danced to the musical selections from Chromatic, DJ Carzy Neil and DJ Young Chow, others opted to remain at the bars.
Deejays constantly reminded the patrons to know their limit and to consume lots of water after drinking alcoholic beverages. Age verification through a valid ID was required at the venue's entrance before some patrons were given armbands.
Throughout the night, security personnel worked tirelessly to keep the traffic along Negril's Hipstrip flowing.
By midnight, it was time for Yush. The 90s-themed party attracted the largest turnout thus far at the Dream Weekend party series. Deejays from Coppershot and Renassiance Disco hurled hits after hits taking the partygoers down memory lane. Tracks from Spragga Benz, Daddy Screw, Beenie Man, and Bounty Killer heightened the vibes. International visitors were not to be left out as they too showed off their version of the dances including Higher Level, Butterfly, Signal the Plane and Bogle.
Veteran deejay Sky Juice also was a crowd favourite as he thrilled the audience with his selections and dance moves.
The party came to its peak when the night's special guests Bounty Killer and Baby Cham entered the stage. The two dancehall artistes no stranger to Yush, delivered a string of hits from their vast catalogue.
