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!

#6 Electric Punanny Tour: Atlanta Recap

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!

#5 Electric Punanny Tour: NYC Recap

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.

#4 Electric Punanny Tour: DC Recap

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!

#3 Electric Punanny Tour: Boston Recap

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.

#2 Electric Punanny Tour: WMC Recap

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!

#1 Electric Punanny Tour: SXSW Recap

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.

Check out photos from the event taken by Joel (IamYourVillain) below:

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

House of Marley SXSW Takeover: FNT Austin

What’s the most bizarre party you’ve ever been to? Did it involve sword swallowing? What about rope dancing? Boxing? Mobb Deep and Mike Jones performing in a boxing ring? No? Well it sounds like you weren’t at FNT at SXSW because that’s exactly what went down.

For those of you unfamiliar with FNT let us break it down for you. FNT is a movement that takes place in NYC. It’s a party/ event/ spectacle that has been happening for quite sometime now, and has developed a pretty huge following. Promoter Bekim Trenova decided what better place to bring the event to than the SXSW festival. So he grabbed a bunch of fighters from NYC, called up some fighters in Austin, got in a huge purple bus and hit the road.

The first thing you noticed when you walked into FNT was that this was no normal SXSW party. This was no music industry party; it was full blown Texas. What other SXSW party would you see a guy with a mermaid tattooed on his face do the worm across a boxing rink with a sword in his throat? What other SXSW party would you be able to see Mobb Deep perform ‘Shook Ones’ in the middle of a boxing ring? Nowhere. That’s where. Oh yeah we forgot to mention that Rome Fortune did made an appearance and DJ Mess Kid was on the decks keeping the people on their feet all night. We talked to Havock and Prodigy from Mobb Deep and here’s what they had to say about FNT Austin, “That shit look pretty ill.”  We at The House of Marley are going to go out on a limb and say that FNT Austin was one of the most live parties SXSW has seen in years, and we know it’s only going to get bigger and bigger as the years go one.

 

House of Marley SXSW Takeover Day Two: TOPNOTCH

TOPNOTCH was in the building last night! The House of Marley and Okayfuture invaded SXSW to bring together some of the best in electronic music for the Okayfuture showcase. Artists Durkin, Falcons, Booty Fade, and Brenmar had the crowd moving and dancing all night. If that wasn’t enough though, Teklife brought a secret performer, Rashad. Rashad got the crowd going wild! Take a look at some pictures to get a full feeling of the night.
