Early end to En'Vogue

It was quite disappointing for patrons when the police brought an end to En'Vogue, which was held at The Terrace, New Kingston, last Saturday night.

Lots of cars in the parking lot and long lines of patrons described the scene at the party at 1 a.m. High-end liquor also seemed to be the order of the day at the Hennessy-sponsored event, as numerous persons had several bottles at their feet or on their bistro tables.

Intoxication mixed with music from Flabba Dabba seemed to bring the party to a high, but this did not stop the police from bringing an abrupt end to the event at 4 a.m. The selector said he was only allowed to play a few more songs, and he did just that, ending with Rihanna's Diamonds. But even at 4:30 a.m. many patrons still stood inside the venue drinking and chatting.

Although it ended on a high, it was not as impressive in the beginning. With patrons such as dancehall artistes Bounty Killer and Voicemail in attendance, DJ Karyzma played mostly older songs like Beenie Man's Hum Hum, QQ's Stookie and Busy Signal's Step Out. The music later switched to pop songs like Rihanna's Only Girl In The World and Chris Brown's Yeah X3.

Chromatic followed and had patrons singing along to Tarrus Riley's Never Leave I and I-Octane's My Story. From singing to dancing, the selector had people moving to Vybz Kartel's Virginity and Konshens' Gal A Bubble. After much dancing, there was some rap and hip-hop music that encouraged mostly bouncing and 'gun salutes' with Ace Hood's Hustle Hard and Drake's HYFR getting big 'forwards'.

Flabba Dabba started with some older songs, but seemed as if he was going to overdose patrons on songs from Konshens. Nonetheless, the patrons seemed to enjoy his selection of songs like So Mi Tan, I'm Coming and Siddung. Flabba Dabba also had a good run with other songs like I-Octane Love The Vibes and Popcaan's Party Shot.
