Sean Paul and Leftside's Dutty Rock Friday's debuted last weekend. According to the Jamaica Star :
It was a lively and fun-filled party at Club Riddim in New Kingston last Friday night as Grammy-award winning dancehall artiste Sean Paul and local dancehall producer/artiste Left Side hosted the first staging of their weekly event Dutty Rock Fridays.
The excitement started from as early as 12:15 a.m. during the juggling of Coppershot sound which played an adrenaline-pumping segment laced with dancing songs such as Jiggy Time by Bogle, Voicemail and Delly Ranks, Willy Bounce by Elephant Man, and Voicemail's Just Dance.
The DJ also had the patrons moving to Sean Paul's Temperature and Shane O's Lighting Flash. dancers were seen dancing choreographed moves, while some patrons looked in an effort to learn something.
After the dancing came the real hardcore juggling segment. The DJ shouted "Mek mi big up some real thugs," he then went on to play Sizzla's GangstaNuh Left Dem Gun, Vybz Kartel's Real Bad Man and Mavado's Wey Dem A Duh.
The music was halted for awhile to allow Pepsi of Renaissance Disco to play his segment of juggling, however, when it returned it was old school hip hop favourites such as Foxy Brown's Oh Yeah, Styles P's I Get High and Biggy Smalls' Dead Wrong.
"Big up everybody who lost somebody special," Pepsi said, and played Demarco's Fallen Solider followed by Bounty Killer's Full Surface.
"Mek mi si all the people dem who love God and God bless dem now," the DJ said and concluded the hip hop segment with Kanye West's Jesus Walks.
At 1:15 a.m. the DJ announced that he would be paying homage to the late music icon Whitney Houston and played the singer's hit single My Love Is Your Love. The ladies sang the verses line for line as the DJ cheered them on saying: "Every woman wey have a child and dem know sey dem love them pickney and care for them represent".
Sean Paul and Left Side made their way into Club Riddim at minutes after 2.a.m bombarded by the paparazzi's inquisitive cameras. They later gave performances which added to the value of the event.
Other artistes who gave performances include D Twins, Esco and Bling Dwag. the event ended at minutes after 4 a.m. and will continue next Friday, same time, same place.
