Speaking of post carnival blues, sometimes you just need something warm and shimmery to help with the comedown. This ska remix of Ansiket by Cocotaxi is perfect for that. I cant give you much more information but just put it on and think back to the clear 2 days of West London madness and this song with instantly add a wonderful hipstmatic glow to it all. Even that part when you eat dodgy stew chicken or got bumped into by 500 different people in 5 minutes.
You can grab this from the Cocotaxi soundcloud on saturday.
This saturday (3rd September) we return to The Camp for the 2nd of our Carnival Specials. We will have all of our residents including new resident Murlo on hand to help you all get over Post Carnival blues. So come on down from 10pm to 4am as we will continue the carnival vibes. Illanja will be bringing a ‘Rocksteady, Reggae and Rub-a-Dub’ set to the Camp early so come on down to enjoy that and the drink offers as well. Also fresh from their storming Carnival set will be style and swagger ( The Large, Why Delila and Kazabon) and Hootie Who will be playing the best in Hip Hop, Dancehall and tropical.
You can catch HDD DJs, Kazabon and Hootie Who, at this carnival afterparty hosted by Informed London. The intimate atmosphere combined with a wicked selection of DJs (including past HDD guest Lukey) it is guaranteed to keep the carnival vibe going. The party is even sponsored by Old Jamaica ginger beer, what more could you ask for?! Check the facebook event page for more details.
Style & Swagger (aka HDD residents Kazabon, The Large and Why Delila) have a busy weekend ahead: On Saturday night they will be at Mudd Up at Open The Gate in Stoke Newington, on Sunday they will be hosting a carnival edition of their NTS radio show from at 1am, and on Monday they will be bringing their carnival soundtrack to the Extra Stout Sound System from 5pm – 6pm. This soundsystem boasts a huge lineup over Sunday and Monday and a little birdy even tweeted that Stylo G may be stopping by on Sunday. To help you find your way check out Timeout’s soundsystem map.
We were thrilled when the opportunity to do a mix for Tropical Waste came about. We wanted to do something especially for carnival. So here’s our World Carnival mix just in time to get you amped up and ready for whatever this year’s Notting Hill Carnival has in store. Its an hour of tunes (mixed live) inspired by carnivals around the world. We tried to fit in variety of genres that reflected the unadulterated joy of carnival. So from South African house to Chicago Juke to so good old London Grime, we have it all.
