Carnival 2008


pic by James Hill Flickr

Carnival was Heavy this year. One of the best.

Especially as I managed to completely avoid Good Times and every single Funky House soundsystem. We raped the free bar at the Mad Decent do, which was  a lot of fun - free bar, food & toilets is pretty unheard of at carnival.
Toddla T set it off with a set of jungle carnival classics. When Super Sharp Shooter is the First tune you hear, you know its gonna be a good day.

He was followed by the awesome Rusko who rinsed a set of nail gun dubstep hammers like this one

Here's a 20 min mix he did a few months back.


Although for me, Heatwave played the set of the day. Big shout out to Gabriel for dropping anthem after anthem. My tune of the day  was the immense Click Mi Finger by Erup. Which they posted here. Proper Bashment carnival Bombs. 

I think Santogold sang Creator and Major Lazer (Diplo & Switch) hosted an awesome pa of Siverlink's The Message Is Love


Radioclit's afterparty
 was thankfully chilled and I heard Man Recording's Dan Haaksman play some excellent baile funk before somehow getting home. Then I don't remember. 

Notting Hill Carnival is a life affirming party for anyone. And after the summer we've had, it was damn needed.
