CHRISTMAS came early for fans of sound system Renaissance, headliners of its self-titled Christmas Party at Mas Camp in St Andrew on December 23.

“This is our first event in over four years. When I mean first event, I mean an event that we've kept along with someone, because we're still here doing events, still producing, so this is just a next step,” disc jockey and part owner of Renaissance Delano Thomas told Splash.

The “someone” Thomas referred to was sound system Third Dimension.

“Renaissance is a brand that we've all grown up with. In the past, their Christmas events have fared well and it just seemed like a good synergy,” Mario Campbell of Third Dimension explained.

His words were echoed by Third Dimension's Kamal Bankay.

“Myself and Delano go back many, many, years as great friends. We've done parties together in the past and Renaissance had a desire to get back in the promotion game after a hiatus doing events in Jamaica,” he said.

He went further to indicate that the genesis for the Renaissance Christmas Party happened earlier this year when the sound system held their anniversary party overseas to celebrate their 28 years in the business. The event itself was well supported with several industry heavyweights in attendance.

Renaissance Christmas Party wouldn't have been complete without the juggling and remixes from the high-energy sound system. However, they weren't alone as a host of other sounds including Chromatic and Third Dimension joined in on the musical action throughout the evening.
