I’m pleased to announce the newest cocktail on the menu at WildPitch Music Hall is “The Highlanda,” featuring top shelf Jamaican rum.
And what better way to debut a new cocktail than with a drink special? Order “The Highlanda” for just $5, all night at electric dancehall!
Cheers!!! “I’m drinking rum, and red bull..”
Here is a video recap of what to expect at #electricdancehall.
Here is a quick informational piece about Electric Dancehall from the official host, DREGGAE.
Here is the world famous DJ MARS sharing tips on getting into (and beating the line) for this highly anticipated inaugural special event. Here’s a hint: get there early.
Now, if the wicked talented DJ Line-up and top rated dance music venue complete with a new patio and $5 Highlanda drink special aren’t enough to convince you, then check out this article to see why Mike Jordan, author at Thrillist, included Electric Dancehall in his “things to do in Atlanta this weekend” article.
Don’t miss your chance to grab your spot – the event’s filling up fast!
Karamanti has just released the official video for her single “Don’t Give Up,” recorded on the Missing Piece Riddim by Rhome Records.
The Riddim also features Khago, Teflon and several other Jamaican artists and it was released in September of 2015 and distributed globally by 21st Hapilos Distribution.
“Don’t Give Up” is a motivational track that would be classified as Caribbean pop (though it has a very strong dancehall sound). A few scenes for the video were shot in Ontario, Canada, while others were done in Kingston, Jamaica. Unlike most music videos, “Don’t Give Up” does not have any actors, instead, real, everyday people were asked about their dreams, obstacles and determination, or lack thereof. After sharing their story, they were followed with a camera so that the public could get a glimpse into their struggles and their commitment to not giving up.

Saturday, July 16 in Atlanta, I had the pleasure of performing once again at the historic Wren’s Nest.
My time on stage at this open-air festival was short but sweet. Lion of Judah Sound set the musical pace earlier and many great performers and bands hit the stage all day.
Reggae is larger than life. Click the image above to hear the audio.
As you may know if you have visited this blog before, myself and The Honorary Citizen are producers of a successful 100% reggae event concept, Rub-A-Dub, which occurs on the second Sunday of every month in downtown Atlanta.
Rub-A-Dub Atlanta Reggae Event
As resident DJs at Rub-A-Dub, DJ Passport and I have invited different guests to partake in the non-mainstream vibe each month.
This is truly a unique concept, not just for the soundtrack, but especially because of this list of selectors to have performed at Rub-A-Dub:
- Cartel Sound with Philip 5
- DJ Empress Rah
- Yahquan Da Travellah
- DJ Hourglass
- DJ Redds from Spectrum Disco
- Funkregulator Celo (456 Sound)
- DJ Lion
- Empress Movements with Tach
- SuperPEC Archangel
Lion of Judah Sound and Nijah Don get credit for assists as well.
You might want to check in at one of these events if you even remotely like reggae music because I have more heavy weight guest sounds coming in to play for you “inna Rub-A-Dub style.”
Cartel Sound and SuperPEC will be featured on July 10 so expect to hear great selections, and solid mixing for FREE all night. That’s right there will be no cover charge for #RUBADUBATL through summer 2016.
Sign-up to get updates and special offers for all of my events.
Recorded live on Mothers Day 2016, Rub-a-Dub is every month on the 2nd Sunday of the month.
