Start Off the Weekend with This Island Blast!


Start Off the Weekend with This Island Blast!

Weekend, weekend, weekend!

The beginning of the video has you at attention as you wonder: “What are all those people standing around for?” “What are they waiting for?” Then the horns explode over you as the people run out of the office and it all becomes clear; they were waiting for the weekend, waiting to let the good times roll!

And it’s easy to see how one can’t wait to get out on to the sun stained streets of Aruba to celebrate some downtime for three days. The wide-ranging mixture of its people is put on display in a fun-filled afternoon loaded with coronas, dominoes and dancing. Par for the course on a Caribbean island.

Throughout the video, the scenery especially grips you when the beat slows down to an intoxicating half-speed tempo bathed in a mesmerizing synth sample.
