An electrifying atmosphere at Mass Camp
Renowned selector Kurt Riley, DJ Nicco, and Mix Master Marvin delivered outstanding performances on the turntables last Saturday night at Wray & Nephew's 'Yesterday', hosted at Mas Camp.
The trio took the audience on a nostalgic journey, rekindling memories for the mature crowd, who were completely enthralled. As the clock struck midnight and the party was in full swing, the early juggling sessions had prepared the fans for what Kurt Riley had in store when he took the stage at 12:30.
Starting with the Boys 2 Men classic "Yesterday," which set the perfect tone, Riley had the crowd harmonizing for the first part of his set. People swayed closely with their partners to the soulful sounds of R&B hits by artists like Sade, Johnny Gill, and Baby Face, among others.

From the VIP cabanas to the rest of the packed Mas Camp venue, everyone was having a fantastic time. When the Party Animal shifted to his favorite genre, the ladies let loose to songs like "Turn it around (Plumber)" and "Go dung" by Lil Rick and Machel Montano as the music resonated through the speakers.
The transition to DJ Nicco was seamless, and he kept the party energy high as patrons made their way to strategically placed bars for their favorite Wray & Nephew White Overproof Rum mixes.
Just as Kurt Riley had the crowd singing in harmony, DJ Nicco had them grooving to hits from Beres Hammond, Dennis Brown, Terror Fabulous, Clitty McLean, Jah Mason, Sizzla, and many more.
Mix Master Marvin then invited the crowd to "meet me at the party," setting off a barrage of dancehall hits. The partygoers revisited the iconic dances that accompanied each song, with tracks like Mavado's "The Real McKoy."
The transition to more up-tempo dancehall tunes had the audience literally jumping to tracks such as "Bicycle," "Man A Gyalis," and "Mr. Officer."
The fans were thoroughly entertained and are undoubtedly eagerly anticipating the Christmas edition scheduled for Saturday, December 23, 2023.
