Our final stop on the North American Tour! We traveled the distance into the desert for the final weekend of Coachella. Having to keep our gig a secret until the day of – we announced on the morning of 4.20 (go figure) that we were guest DJing at the Do-Over! We spun alongside Kaytranda and J.Rocc along with the original Do-Over crew. Poolside at the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs, we couldn’t have asked for a better end to our journey

And big and final thank you to House of Marley for making this tour possible! We love you!
LA proved to be one of the best parties on this whole tour! We were a little nervous since LA’s reggae scene is not as well known as NYC’s. But after getting over 400 RSVP’s, having a packed house with a crowd that was so beautiful and everyone dancing even after the lights came on – we are convinced. We will back to LA sooner than you think!
Many thanks to DJ Sean G + DJ Qbwoy for absolutely killing their sets and making the night possible!

Final stop is Coachella!
We made it to The Bay! Our first stop in Cali was in San Fran to join Tormenta Tropical‘s own Deejay Theory & DJ Oro11.
Tormenta Tropical is a party that’s been going on as long as EP has (6 years) and it’s easy to see why. Check out the photos from the night, shot by Steve O. …
Next stop LA then we have a big surprise at Coachella on Sunday 😉 Stay tuned!
Hello HOTlanta! Teaming up with Atlanta’s own DJ Martina McFlyy and the best shoe store in town, Epitome – we threw a little rager at El Bar. Complete with a Caribbean Jerk food truck outside and a packed house inside. We couldn’t have had a better host and team to collab with!

There’s nothing like coming home. Let alone to a new party at Webster Hall that features a different theme in every room, cleverly named “House Party”. Electric Punanny will run the reggae room every Thursday and some of our friends will take over the alternate rooms…
The opening night was Thursday, April 3rd – and with the Village Voice, Time Out NY, Revolt TV and more media outlets behind us – we knew it was going to be a BIG turn out. Low and behold, the night was insane. Every room packed, especially ours. Playing everything from roots, reggae, dancehall and soca – we left Webster Hall drenched in sweat and happy.

Next stop, Atlanta!
Good ol’ DC. Melo and I have performed there several times before, but this was our first official ‘Electric Punanny’ event in our nation’s capital. The promotion for this event was insane, I mean look at this hand drawn character illustration for the flyer done by Rose Inks…
The venue, U St. Music Hall was built and designed by 5 DJs – you can imagine how amazing the sound system was. As doors opened around 9pm, the die hard fans started rolling in. The vibe all night was beautiful and we had such a blast. Take a look at some of the photos by Steve O. (www.sosemwenkhae.com)
Many thanks to Mista Selecta and ManeSqueeze for having us! Next stop is back home in NYC at Webster Hall!
On our third stop of the tour, we visit the bean a.k.a. Boston! An emotional trip for Jasmine, since she went to Emerson College – it was a big deal to come back to her old stomping grounds. We teamed up with A Lil Louder – an awesome creative collective who have been making noise with their monthly parties.
We combined forces literally, resulting in a new party name… “A Lil Punanny” – ha! Needless to say the night was incredible. A packed house, music ranging from reggae to jazz to african house and people continuing the dance circle even past the lights coming on.

Next stop DC!
If you’re an east coaster – or at least have heard of our never-ending winter (it snowed last night in NY by the way) – then you can imagine the relief of flying to Miami for our second stop on tour. And although we knew good weather was coming, we had no idea that our event was about to be the most talked about party in town.
Teaming up with Largeup for our second annual #WinterMusicMassive, we did what we do best: combine our worlds of reggae, dancehall, soca, tropical bass and throw a party no one can forget. On the DJ line up we featured DJ Gravy, Reid Waters, San Gabriel, Spread Love and us – Jasmine Solano & MeLo-X. Performances were made by Jesse Royal, Jo Mersa Marley, Bunji Garlin, Fay-Ann Lyons and a special surprise from Stephen Marley and Damian Marley. (WOW) Not to mention our hosts, Melanie Fiona and top dancehall producer, Rvssian.
It was one of those nights where you just had to be there. Take a look at the photos below from Samuel Rivas to get a glimpse of what was an epic night!
Our first stop on this Spring’s North American Tour was the little-big town of Austin, Texas for SXSW! In keeping with tradition, we DJ’d at Chocolate Sundays – the best rager closing party SXSW has ever had. Known for combining all words of skateboarding – art – music, Chocolate Sundays still lives up to its name. Hosted by Hollywood Holt and featuring Million $ Mano, Spankrock, The Cool Kids and many others, we had a blast this year.

Thank you Austin for another great year! Next stop Miami!
