Rooftop Ranking - Dalston Roof Park 2012
almost 2 years ago
a couple of days until we are back. World Carnival Sounds all night - Afropop, Dancehall Soca and more. This past month has seen a grip of great new music come out, songs that will run this summer. The road to Carnival starts on Saturday.
Next week…. Dalston 9-3am
Make sure you come and see @kazabonbon and @hrhhootiewho and more next saturday down at @shacklewellarms
The whole of the team is back together for this session. We are taking June off because the venue’s owners are having a field day party so this is one has to last us for 2 months.
Its been crazy since the last session Murlo has a weekly residency on 1xta and his Lights On mix for Monki came out. Not kidding you when we say it’s one of the best of the year. It’s funny the premise of that mix is the tunes you play when the lights come on in the club because half of those tracks he has played at our raves (Tanya Stephens especially).
Illanja has been busy as well, he just finished handing in his book on youth culture to the publishers. His academic paper on grime from 2 years ago was great so looking forward to reading this when it comes out.
As for Kazabon and I, tons of behind the scene stuff in advance of UK carnival season. Building more links with our respective heritages and prepping some exciting new HDD things. We just dropped a new blend which is totally in our wheelhouse. We are heavily influenced by the refix work of Mafia and Fluxy in the late 90’s/early 2000’s. Blends that work well and not necessarily trying to be bangers. Between Riddim n Blues and the majority of our blend work you can see a clear distinction between us and others. We know that Beyonce has danced to em so thats all good.
See you all on the 3rd, World Carnival Sounds all night.
Ps. the venue got a bit of an upgrade as well!
Tonight. Got a feeling this might be 1 for the ages.
