Busy Signal and Dugsy Ranks created a storm in the Turks and Caicos Island when performing at Techno Sound's 10th Anniversary celebration titled 'Sound The Big Thing' on Sunday, June 15, 2008 at the Williams Auditorium in Providenciales, Turks and Caicos.

Busy Signal could do nothing wrong for his audience. He had them in a frenzy as he kicked off his performance with the song 'Rising To The Top'. Busy... then dropped the 'bomb' when he sang 'Bad Man Place' which resulted in the lighters and 'gun fingers' coming out in a flourish.

He then paid tribute to the alliance camp as he did his combination with Mavado, the song 'Full Clip'. Busy stepped it up another notch as he told the large crowd on hand that 'We Not Going Down'.

Busy got even busier on stage and represented for all the Jamaicans in the audience with 'Jamaica Wi Born and Grow'.

The deejay went into his catalogue of hits with one of his 'break out' songs 'Step Out' which had the crowd making their own steps on the dance floor.

Busy Signal got into a more pensive mood as he performed the soul stirring song, 'These Are The Days' which the crowd sang along with.

With the girls at the front clambering to touch him, and all the phones waving in the air, Busy...did 'Unknown Number'.

Evidently having fun on stage while sharing good vibes with his audience, the deejay shook the place as he went into 'Nah Guh A Jail Again'. It was share pandemonium as Busy... sounded another big thing with 'Wine Pon De Edge' which had the girls in a frenzy wining uncontrollably. Busy also got in the act when he invited a girl on stage to 'Wine Pon De Edge'.

Dugsy Ranks seemingly a favourite after making this, his third appearance on the Island didn't disappoint his fans.

Dugsy... set the place on fire as he deejayed a song about Gangstas. The deejay then went into high gear and had the girls screaming as he did his big hit song 'Wife' on the red hot pepper seed rhythm.

Dugsy...ended his performance on a high with some more songs for the girls which had the ladies going wild.

Jamaican singer August performing in the island for the first time represented well.

August had the ladies weak as he sang 'Too Late', a One Republic original. He then brought the house down when he serenaded a beautiful Haitian girl on stage.

Techno promoter of the event was very pleased with how the event turned out. "It was a good vibes man. The people love Busy... down hear and he delivered well so too my good friend Dugsy Ranks. It was the first time any event was being held here on a Sunday so this is an historic event."

Techno has kept some of the most successful events in Turks and Caicos, the biggest being a BMobile show featuring Beres Hammond, Bounty Killer, and Wayne Marshall.
