Miami is full of parties and events, but for MDW this particular event was a new experience. Kola Champagne presented their Island Bae - Silent Bashment, adding a different twist to the normal party we are used to. A silent bashment? At first when I walked in I was like dude....where is the music? I was not prepared for any of this, at all. But it was brought to my attention that I was about to experience a "silent disco" or "headphone party". A silent disco...
"is a surreal social experience in which people dance to music via distributed wireless headphones. In lieu of one unified speaker system, three different songs are sent simultaneously to each receiver. Participants can choose to listen to one channel, or toggle between the three stations."

Even though silent parties have been around since the 90's; this party phenomena and growth has created a big influence for noise pollution. Silent Noise was one of the participating sponsors for this amazing party. We gotta thank cultural influencers like Norma Now, J4haneen, Rodzilla, SilentAddy and many more putting this super dance party for the people.
I was pretty amazed by the whole concept. Like dude...I am at a party where EVERYONE is in their zone and having an amazing time. People were feeling the music in their soul. Even the people without headphones were there catching a vibe! As the flyer stated... 3 Channels - 1 Headset & Selections for the Baes. What better way to enjoy some options for baes, eh? ;) I was able to choose from 3 different genres at any given time. In my opinion this created such a great experience not only for myself and the people, but especially for the Dj's alone! This created a friendly battle zone for the Dj's to showoff and catch their audience attention! ...Well let me tell you it sure did.
Amazing tunes and killer vibes were brought to you by Disco Neil, Ryan Sayeed, JUN-ILL and more. Island Bae also brought out one of my favorite up and coming Dj's LteNght! Not only did LteNght had me singing like if no one was watching (or listening), but he also had me breaking it down to his creative mixture of jersey bounce and house - 'Get Into Somethin'. His set had everyone on Team Blue!
