The highly anticipated special event is set to be the premier gathering for the progressive Atlanta Caribbean music and EDM movements, bringing fans together in the downtown area for one night only. Advance tickets can be purchased for $20 at www.electricdancehallatlanta.eventbrite.com. Come be apart of what is sure to be an exciting evening of dancing and socializing.
Currently many songs on the Billboard Top 100 feature elements of Dancehall and other Afro-Caribbean genres. Artists like Drake, Rihanna, Alicia Keys, & Justin Bieber have used these same elements to connect with a larger audience. Electric Dancehall aims to present a new way that the world can party by compelling the audience to engage with their music in a more energetic way, forgo their musical or cultural affiliations for one night, and let the DJs cater to their inner dancing urge.
Headlining Electric Dancehall Atlanta will be DJ Mars, Shane Talon, ĀGARD, Highlanda Sound, and DJ Passport. The night will be hosted by the genre-bending Jamaican performer and songwriter, Dreggae.
“A great melding of worlds is taking place in terms of musical exploration and production. We are excited about bringing together followers of different genres, doing away with perceived divisions, and merging music styles and culture together in a fresh, innovative way for an unforgettable experience,” says Electric Dancehall CoProducer Kahlil Wonda.

Kim Phillips, son of Glen Adams, has just released two powerful reggae songs, both performed by veteran reggae artist Frankie Paul and produced by Glen Adams prior to his death.
The first track, titled “out in the deep,” is an inspirational record that deals with his – Frankie Paul’s – spiritual tenacity; While the second song, “too much guns” addresses the issue of gun control and/or the lack thereof.
Frustrated by all the violence taking place all over the world, Kim Phillips decided that it was time to share unreleased records from his father’s extensive catalogue, which is filled with the type of message-music needed for this day and age.
Both tracks are being released on his newly formed label, Capo-Landmark Music, which is a spin off from Glen Adams’ Capo label from the seventies. Both songs can be streamed via the YouTube links below and DJs are invited to email firstname.lastname@example.org for promo mp3s.
