Crazy excited for Carnival this year. It’s BETTER THAN CHRISTMAS. For me 2012 was an amazing year for soca with so many huge jams like Kerwin’s ‘Bacchanalist’, Swappi ‘s ‘Bubble on ah DJ’ and Lil Rick’s ‘Work’. 2013 wasn’t quite as strong, but this year the sun is out this week and Notting Hill Carnival […]

With Notting Hill Carnival around the corner, thought I’d do a megapost of my favourite recent mixtapes to get you in the flag waving mood whether you’re going to carnival or not.

Poirier’s Karnival attack continues with a punishing new EP Run The Riddim. It hits his usual high benchmark of blistering bass heavy electronic soca, bashment and dancehall. Vocals on the riddims by Burro Banton, Face-T, MC Zulu and the UK’s YT. Out on Ninja Tune on Sept 28th. And he is well worth catching on […]
