"With London's Notting Hill Carnival Just a round the corner, we thought we'd drop a carnival inspired volume to get you all in the mood for the bank holiday weekend. If you have never been to West London's Carnival, hopefully these selections will inspire you to make that journey to one of the best weekends in music.....

For 3 days the streets of W10: Notting Hill, Ladbroke Grove and Westbourne Park, are filled with the most amazing colours and sounds...... whether it be the traditional floats and bands or the 40 odd dedicated soundsystems pumping out: reggae, dub, dancehall, soca and calypso, house, funk, drum ’n’ bass, jungle, dubstep, ska and breaks.....


Its all there for the discernible listener and we hope this weeks volume gives you a taster and puts you in the mood....."
