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.
What can we say about this track? It’s amazing, it’s Famous Eno at his best. We were there from day 1 with this song from hearing it being blared on repeat in his house when he first made they instrumentals to helping figure out the vocal performances order. That’s not to say we have anything to do with it’s success, thats all Eno and the vocalists and Swing Ting. It’s more a case of highlighting what goes into making a great release. All these little factors that go into making what is a great song and visual.
Out on Swing Ting now, go support the release and download it from iTunes or Google Play.
To celebrate five years of throwing parties in London, we are taking over the Queen of Hoxton for a special birthday bash! We are really excited to have past HDD guests Serocee, Swing Ting, Famous Eno and Terry Juarez plus resident Illanja joining us for one hell of a celebration.
To help bring the heat, very special guests Funkystepz and Seani B will be bringing everything from reggae to soca to funky bashment to both floors of this Shoreditch hotspot.
In true World Carnival style expect all kinds of dutty dancing, wukking and wining to help us celebrate and to kick start this bank holiday weekend.
Last Saturday we celebrated four years of HDD with Serocee and Poirier as our guests and the vibe was so right as you can see from Egle Trezzi’s photos above . Unfortunately we didn’t manage to capture the magic of the b2b2b2b2b between Serocee, Poirier, Kazabon, Hootie Who and Murlo at the end of the night but if you were there you know it was pretty special. Thanks again to everyone who partied with us.
Today sees Famous Eno’s second solo release on Mixpak and this one is not to be slept on. Gypsy Riddim is a heavy hitting dancehall riddim with Jamaican up-and-comer Vyral joining UK favourites Serocee, Trigganom and Rubi Dan on the vocal cuts. It’s hard to choose a favourite on here as they are all strong but after the friendly b2b we had with Serocee at our birthday party last Saturday Topatop hits home for us – we dread to think what would happen in a serious clash! Stream the tracks below and support another great release from Famous Eno and Mixpak here or here.
