Dancehall Juggling Center debuts with First Friday Atlanta Audio


Dancehall Juggling Center brings you audio highlights from live concerts, parties, and dances.  The term “juggling” refers to a type of dancehall performance that consists of a sound system selector weaving together a number of tunes on the same rhythm to create a continuous dance groove.  This type of selecting is often referred to as “mixing.”

Highlanda and other top rated sound systems adopt different creative styles of juggling to provide interactive, action-packed performances in front of live audiences at an energy level much higher than that which can be accomplished through mixtapes or radio. Listen to the hardcore and nightclub dancehall vibes here and keep coming back for updates. Remember, this audio footage is ALL THE WAY LIVE so parental advisory is strongly recommended!
