Sorry it’s a bit late, we have been under the weather. 2 hours of World Carnival tunes from Kazabon and Hootie Who, including our World Carnival highlight by Hamza with a little help from Ramzriddlz. Get involved now, it’s a great listen.
On March 3rd we are back at C.A.M.P. for our monthly residency. This time we are joined by one of the leading lights of Tropical bass music Warrior One. We were lucky to have Warrior One christen our first ever event at the C.A.M.P. back in September 2010. Since then he has gone on to release records labels such as Black Butter, King Pigeon and Mixpak and work with the likes of Serocee, Lady Chann and Durrty Goodz. His latest track Fyah featuring Ayah (which you can listen to below). We are very lucky to have him joining us and can’t wait for his storming set.
Also on the night we will have residents Murlo (Pollinate/ Mixpak), The Large (Shimmy Shimmy) and HDD DJ’s Kazabon & Hootie Who bringing you those winter carnival vibes. So expect soca, azonto, naija pop, SA house alongside the usual hip hop, tropical and dancehall.
We are big Lady Chann fans at HDD HQ (such big fans that we are even in her video for Sticky Situation). We fell in love with her when she duppied Tim Westwood’s studio on the ladies night 1xtra freestyle with No Lay and Lady Leshurr. Since then she has been tearing up dancefloors with hits like Eye Too Fast, Sticky Situation, and has worked with Toddla T, Sticky, South Rakkas Crew, Jessie J and Warrior One (her vocal on Warrior One’s King Riddim is one of our favourites).
Lady Chann’s flow is captivating and she is one of the most versatile MCs in the game right now, she can be strong and direct like on Informer but also has a soft side that we see on Calm, her version of Gyptian’s Hold Yuh.
The people over at Noisey have done a series of videos following Chann’s journey from her beginnings at Sun Cycle to the present. If you dont know about Lady Chann, now’s your chance to get to know!
Over the past 3 years the RBMA and Major Lazer Carnival party has become one of the musical highlights of the year. From it’s small and inauspicious beginnings to last year’s guestlist spots being snapped up in 10 seconds, the party has moved from strength to strength. Some people might only be going for the free booze and food (nothing wrong with that) but the carnival line up has always boasted the best DJ’s and producers around. The event for us has been an opportunity to see some of our favourite dj’s up close. On the eve of the guestlist being open (11th august 10 am) here are some of our favourite moments from the last 3 parties.
