The fam at Bad Taste are about to release a monster. Sweet lord this is good. K Dot and Coco the UK’s best tandem (take that UK cyclists) destroy a monster of an instrumental by the Sheffield boys. Part grime, with bassline and lush tropical touches. Look out for it soon.
7 months after our first World Carnival mix we are back with the sequel. This mix spans not only our musical influences but represents the sound of our heritage. The music that this generation of diasporas (Trinidad and Nigeria in particular) are making. So we have music from countries as diverse as Ghana, Trinidad, UK, France, Nigeria, Portugal and Germany amongst others. For us combing genres such as Soca, Azonto, House and Tropical Bass is natural and something that we have nurtured through our club night. We wanted to replicate the sounds we know are orignating from carnivals in Port of Spain, Calabar and London. We hope that you enjoy this mix, this is what we believe is our World Carnival.

Our Sheff homies Bad Taste are back at Meter (upstairs at The C.A.M.P) this Saturday. They are joined by Deft and the other homie Unknown Soulja. It should be a good affair, you can catch us skanking there. Also look out for a cheeky Bad Taste x Hipsters Dont Dance thing in the coming weeks.
Also on the bill will be Squarehead and Timbah who have both been receiving airplay from Toddla T, Monki (Rinse Fm) and Mary Anne Hobbs. The facebook event is here.
The Chicago native releases his latest mix on the Fat Club website. This mix includes a Murlo refix of Walter Ego‘s Calm Down, which is the best grime song of the year. Also look out for the opening time which is the “moments in love” blend with Trim’s I Am vocal which is probably the second best grime song of the year.
