I Love Soca has again given soca fans a taste of what they've been missing since the season ended and what to look forward to with the one to come.
Hosted at Hope Gardens last Saturday night, I Love Soca managed to pull a strong turnout despite competition from more than four other events in Kingston.
The dance floor was the place to be, the only ones not there being those on the way with Igloos and drinks in tow.
The DJ was in his element, engaging patrons with hardcore soca music and getting them to gyrate and jump to songs like Bunji Garlin's Ready for The Road.
Guh Dung by Lil Rick is a known crowd favourite, and when the DJ played that song, the response was huge. Some even sought to challenge their partners to see who could go lower.
Not even the bartenders could resist dancing as they served those who preferred to utilise the bar service rather than taking their Igloos.
The DJ yelled, "Everybody get somebody and dance!" and went on to play Kitty Cat by Square One. This song never seems to get old and still had patrons attacking each other from all angles, following the directives of the music.
There wasn't a dull moment at I Love Soca not worth mentioning with songs like DeMarco's Love A Come Dung, Whine Yu Bottom (Bubble on a DJ) by Swappi and Major Lazer's Pon Di Floor, creating no ends of excitement.
At about 1 p.m., the police cautioned the DJs to turn down the music. The impact on the patrons was nil.
