Everybody got Footloose
FOOTLOOSE: Short Shorts edition proved that sticking to the essentials — that is, playing good music to dance to — still has value, as it was standing room only at the Mas Camp venue in St Andrew on Saturday night.
Things got off to a late start as the threat of rain earlier made partygoers tentative. However, by midnight, the clear summer night sky had patrons filling the venue to dance up a storm to the best of the 80s and beyond.
DJ Marvin was at the controls and brought the heat immediately to bring the party to a boil, spinning classic reggae tunes. He then moved quickly into a mix of 90s rap party tunes like Mark Morrison's Return of the Mack, and a slew of songs from Biggie Smalls, Wyclef Jean, and Ma$e. These had the packed audience singing along and 'raising their hands in the air, like they just didn't care'.
As the night progressed, there was one genre everyone had been waiting on, soca. And when it hit, it hit hard, starting off with a classic, Byron Lee's Soca Butterfly. The music kept on flowing, with DJ Marvin throwing in some of current hits including Rolly Polly, allowing party fans to dance into the night.
