High energy at footloose
Sadeke Brooks, Staff Reporter

Non-stop dancing and a massive crowd were some of the strong points of Footloose that was held at the New Mas Camp, St Andrew, on Saturday.

By 1a.m. the event was in full swing with the venue extremely packed. Almost oblivious to the bounces from other persons, most of the patrons were constantly dancing, especially during ZJ Liquid's set. He played many high energy disco songs from the '70s and '80s, but his 'cool down' songs of choice was Marcia Griffiths' Electric Boogie that still had the crowd moving. This was followed by Macarena and Cha Cha Slide.

DJ Marvin came next and was just as entertaining when he kicked off his set with David Rudder's Give Praise. The gyrating increased with soca songs Dollar Wine and Togetherness.

There was a semi-sudden shift to calmer songs like Dawn Penn's No No No that was followed by Beres Hammond's Putting Up Resistance and Buju Banton's Browning and Love Black Woman. Calming down for a bit, the patrons got amped up again with Lady Saw's Fling It Up and General Degree's Traffic Blocking. And with Beenie Man and Ms Ting's Dude, the selections got more recent.

There was also a string of Lady Saw's explicit songs that preceded dance moves like 'Higher Level', 'Pon Di River' and 'Willie Bounce'.

A few minutes after 3 a.m. and ZJ Liquid continued to make the patrons move. He played songs like Konshens' Gal Siddung, Aidonia's Caribbean Girls, Cham's Wine, RDX's Jump and Mr Vegas' Bruck It Dung.

"Cool off likkle man," the selector said, before playing Rihanna's Diamonds and R Kelly's Bump And Grind.

Seeming as if his intention was to send patrons home, Liquid played a string of slow songs but most patrons stayed and continued dancing.
