We’re not shy in saying that Carnival is our favourite time of the year. Every August West London transforms into its own Caribbean metropolis as Notting hill hosts its annual street party filled with sun, rum, booties & bashment to run riddims too.
As a result we planned something special for our Carnival special on Radar. Playing themed-sets at Koko on Friday and the annual Gold Teeth getdown on Carnival Sunday, this was an opportunity to pull out the throwback jams & is one of the rare opportunities where we can shamelessly draw for the UK Funky, Bassline & Bashment classics that have made this occasion so memorable in the past & crucially attempt to embody the sweet spirit & raucous energy of Carnival weekend. To top it, the undisputed king of UK Funky himself Crazy Cousinz joined us for a blistering 45 minute mix of riddims, bass and pure anthems.
Starting the show with Afro B’s Juice & Power, keep an ear out for classic selections from Roska, Champion, Zed Bias, DJ MA1 & DJ NG to name a few.
Enjoy the sounds.
We’ll be back on the Radar airwaves on Saturday September 16th with a future beats special featuring one of our favourite Amsterdam crews (no names yet). 16:00 – 18:00 BST.
You can catch About To Blow DJ’s playing at Koko for Burst this Friday August 25th and at Brixton Jamm for Gold Teeth this Sunday August 27th. Carnival vibes only.
