Retroactive a hit5 min read
Rain or shine, the weather conditions were not stopping retroactive lovers. On Friday night, October 27, 2017 into Saturday morning, an indoor event was the way to go as many persons took the trod with their umbrellas into the Karl Hendrickson Auditorium, Jamaica College, to facilitate dancing to FAME FM’s Retroactive party.
With its Retroactive Wednesdays a staple on radio and two of its finest and most experienced who straddle the airwaves and party circuit, Collin Hines and Arif Cooper, at the controls, the scene was set for a whale of a dancing time. Many tunes got persons moving, including Elephant Man’s dancing songs where feet swung in unison, arms waved off the plane, and lines of persons advanced down the flank as instructed. Pals even played hand games to the Diwali riddim and so much more.
With Cooper and Hines alternating, soca and disco also had its good moments, Rockin Robin included, two barefooted lasses literally going Footloose as they also swung their hair theirs by birth or purchase around.
Shabba’s Caan Dun and other guaranteed rub-up tunes were played, such as Johnny P’s Bike Back which really got the ladies going.
Tony Rebel’s If Jah is Standing By My Side proved to be a benediction of sorts as shortly after, at 2:30 a.m., Cooper called it a night and wished all safe travel.
