Trini Gladiata’s Carnival Recommendations

We were first introduced to Trini Gladiata (or some of you may know him as MC Prankster)  when he mc’d alongside CWD at our October session last year. Since then, he has become part of the HDD family. You can find him with us most night’s hyping the HDD crowd,  when he’s not flying around the world, going from carnival to carnival.

You can catch him this Saturday at HDD August session where he will be going back to back with  DJ White Gold , bringing the carnival vibe to CAMP.

To kick off our month of carnival related posts, here are Trini Gladiata’s recommendations for Notting Hill Carnival.

We are still buzzing from Saturday night’s Hipsters Dont Dance; Serocee was a wonderful guest and did not disappoint, his set went from garage to dancehall, and he had the crowd chanting his summer smash Oh Na Na at the close of his set.
