This year RBMA are back at Notting Hill Carnival and are linking up with one of the best local mas bands Mangrove to bring one big bad truck to this year’s parade route. We are honoured to be part of this lineup alongside Soca royalty Bunji Garlin, Fay-Ann Lyons and Olatunji, last year’s Thre3style champion DJ Puffy and some of London’s best selectors; The Heatwave and Jus Now. Serocee will be hosting with PAs from Mangrove artists Jo Money, Sunshine & Nadiva, Soca Jonny, Joni Rich and Survival #1.
Watch out for the truck on the parade route or if you want to play ah mas with Mangrove on the day get your t-shirts and costumeshere.
Our second set of the weekend will be at The Stonebridge Bar which hosts a huge lineup over the weekend to celebrate their 10th anniversary. Catch our set on 20:00 – 22:00 Friday 23rd just after Kurupt FM’s Champagne Steamrooms and just before Toddla T’s Carnival! More info and full lineup here.
Dun D Place is featured on Jus Now’s latest EP Way Up which was just released on Feel Up Records. The video gives us a glimpse into Tokyo’s dancehall culture, and is a really good fit for the Jus Now Stylo G collab.
We can’t think of a better way to kick off Halloween weekend than djing alongside Jus Now and Vesuvio residents Becca, Zane, Tom Caslin and Heavenly Records at The Social. It’s free entry and the carnival vibes will be in full effect until 3am. Fancy dress is encouraged but if you’re not feeling it come as you are and wave something! More info here
For a taste of what to expect, here’s what happened last time we linked with Jus Now on our Radar show.
This is so so good, we have been playing it on our show for a while now. We even had the guys on the show and had a little chat about it. At the risk of repeating ourselves we appreciate the subtly in the song, the guys have many strings to their bow and this is one we haven’t heard as much before.
It’s what you get when you put the stellar song writing of Soca with an almost deep house vibe. It’s wistful and dancey at the same time which is basically all the best dance songs.
A dumb little note the video, follows a man through the streets of Trinidad, which reminds us of Jillionaire short lived youtube tv show where he interviewed drunk people. The song is coming out on Jillionaire’s label, Feel Up Records.
