Night Life Buzz (Nitelifebuzz)

The NiteLifeBuzz media-house provides events photography and promotion services around the world. They publish some of the best quality photos of nightlife, and Caribbean parties. Our conversation fits this season’s emerging industry insider theme.


As the proprietor and owner of NiteLifeBuzz.com, MC does many things within the industry. He knows a lot of people and has tremendous insight, especially when it comes to New York City. We talked about partying in Jamaica, reggae music, and much more.


We had a great conversation covering a bit of history in New York and in Jamaica. This had us reminiscing about former online hangouts, DancehallReggae.com and Highlanda.com. We also drifted back to party life and island excursions when “outside” was open.

Highlanda Sound live at Reggae in the Park

Live audio recorded at #BeReggae6 featuring Highlanda Sound on stage.

This event was crazy fun! It was 90-100 degrees in ATL, but I’m not complaining – I love the summer vibes.  I played familiar songs to set the pace, and then featured new music (nuff Lila Ike, new Buju, Koffee, Tarrus Riley etc.) for the last half of my round.
