The unexpected rain did not deter the organisers of Renaissance's 25th Anniversary Party dubbed EDM vs Dancehall, from staging the event at the Mas Camp on Saturday.

The rain lasted for an hour, however, the Renaissance Disco team still managed to pull out its loyal supporters after the rain subsided.

The excitement on the dance floor fluctuated in the early segment, as some patrons seemed to have been bothered by some of sections of the venue that still showed signs of water. The party vibe only grew during the juggling of Code Red's sound with DJ Lank.

He played a variety of music ranging from Cassidy's Drink and Two Step, Click Mi Finger by Erupt and Elephant Man's City Lock. The ladies were pulled into the action courtesy of singles from Gaza Slim such as Independent Ladies and Everything Fi Hold Him.

Code Red's set did not become monotonous, as the DJs managed to dabble in several genres and eras of music within their allotted time.

Coppershot came next and they went soca, unleashing several hard-hitting songs from Bunji Garlin, Skinny Fabulous, Allison Hinds and Machel Montano.

There were guest performances from Assassin, aka Agent Sasco, and Bugle. However, recording artistes such as Voicemail, Bling Dawg and others turned out to show their support for the iconic sound system. Downsound Records' Skatta Burrell and Foota Hype were also in attendance.

Stone Love took over the turntables, delivered a classic segment of dancehall and reggae hits at minutes after 2 a.m. Chris Brown's personal DJ, Babey Drew was also called into action and he delivered a well put together EDM, dancehall and hip hop-flavoured set.

Renaissance sound system provided that unique, crisp and perfectly-tuned sound that it has developed a reputation for delivering over the years.
