Miami, FL - July 4, 2017 - The fireworks started early in South Florida. And you knew this if you experienced the titillating rhythms, subtle drumbeats present in the interstices of silence, the hard hitting bass, syncopated melodies, the oh-so-sweet sound of soca and the hypnotic cyclical sounds of Electronic Dance Music (EDM) at Electric Karnival in the historic Virginia Key section of south Florida at Virginia Key Beach Park on the 3rd of July.

The bubbling, wining and waving was married with bouncing, jumping, and fist pumping as the genres and communities of EDM and Soca were blended in an official capacity in a festival for the first time ever. The promoters, DJs, performers and attendees had an opportunity to be a part of history as Electric Karnival superseded all expectations Monday night.

In the EDM community there is a motto which they live by and support and that is one of "PLUR."  It stands for PEACE, LOVE, UNITY and RESPECT.  And for me, July 3rd cannot come fast enough. I cannot wait to jump up and experience another "Karnival" for the year and share some good vibes with good people.

Electric Karnival is ~not a fete or a party~. It is a music festival, an experience, a life event created by Caribbean people for Caribbean people in order to enhance and improve our culture and promote diversity.   It was also created for YOU. Because Electric Karnival is We.  And we are more than rum, road, soca and fetes. We are a movement. We are ELECTRIC.

If you've jammed to Machel's "Waiting On The Stage" or Major Lazer's "Soung Bang" featuring Machel, then you have been jammin' to the hybrid fusion of Soca and EDM that we call Caribbean Dance Music (CDM) which is literally doing one of the best things that we can do right now in life... And that's not blend genres of music, but that's blend different groups of people. And I love how music brings us all together.
