Our friends at Don’t Watch That asked us to takeover this month’s edition of their NTS show. With Notting Hill Carnival only days away we thought we would go all in and asked Samrai and our international musical cousin Jasmin Solano to help us bring the vibes. Stream below and enjoy a guest mix from Jasmine and a special carnival B2B2B with Kazabon, Hootie Who and Samrai.

After the success of last year’s World Carnival party we will be back at Birthdays on carnival Sunday August 30th alongside our Swing Ting family and special guests Moleskin and Florentino. Prepare yourselves for another sweaty basement party with plenty vibes.
Advance tickets are now sold out but there WILL be plenty of tickets on the door. We recommend you arrive early for maximum enjoyment, we will be bringing the vibes from early. More info here.
Not sure where the soundsystems we have recommended over the last few years will be? The map below will help you find your way. Thanks to the London Notting Hill Carnival for this year’s carnival map, check out their website for more carnival info.
Unfortunately Notting Hill Carnival favourites Good Times, Rampage, Sancho Panza won’t be taking part this year but we highly recommend checking out Nasty Love, Glady Wax, Volcano, The Heatwave at Different Strokes on Sunday, and Nigerian Corner and Toddla T’s takeover of SSP Soundsystem on Monday. There are more than enough soundsystems to check out so go explore and if you want to hear the best soca follow the trucks for a bit!
T&T’s soca superstar and HDD favourite Machel Montano is bringing his On My Way show to Hammersmith this on Friday 28th of August and he’s bringing Skinny Fabulous, Olatunji and Angela Hunte with him. This one is not to be missed and will definitely get your carnival weekend started right. More info and tickets here.
It’s that time again, carnival is nearly upon us and that means time for another installment of our World Carnival mix series. The latest addition is number 6 in the series and was kindly hosted by Don’t Watch That as a carnival edition of their Don’t Mix That series. Get this through your speakers and head over to Don’t Watch That to read a carnival themed Q&A with us.
As per the other mixes we have featured tunes we have been bumping at HDD HQ and at our monthly parties, spanning soca, dancehall, afropop and club music. It will definitely get you in the mood for Notting Hill Carnival and for our World Carnival party this Sunday.
