Hilanda Dubplate - Saddest day by Wayne Wonder
After a three-year hiatus Highlanda made a triumphant return to the Atlanta dancehall scene with a renewed energy in 2009. Featured appearances at the mainstream events: Atlanta First Fridays at the W and Twelve Hotels, and on Atlanta’s largest New Year’s Eve event, NYEintheATL at the Crown Plaza Hotel, along with weekly engagements at Primal, The Bentley’s, Aliyah’s, Frequency Nightclub and DaVinci’s Nightclub, along with reoccurring engagements at The Royal Peacock, Vice Lounge, and Life Nightclub have quickly reestablished Highlanda as a top quality dancehall / reggae sound.
Founded by selectors/DJs SuperPEC, Crisis Don, and Kahlil Wonda, Highlanda Sound System debuted on the Atlanta nightclub scene in early 1999 after being discovered by Presise Halley, CEO of the Atlanta based entertainment company, Extreme Media (formerly Waxfactor).
