Notting Hill Carnival 2012

It’s August Bank Holiday, and that means only one thing for most Londoners (and it’s not Creamfields, or Reading Festival). The behemoth that is Notting Hill Carnival rolls into west London on Sunday and, to celebrate this fact, we have decided to share some Carnival-themed tunes with you.

Firstly this from Italian duo NiCe7. ‘Back To 90’ is a slightly baffling tune, in that most of their other output (including the rest of their recent ‘Back to Basics’ EP) is pretty serious tech-house. This track, by contrast, is a lovely bit of 90s garage-y house – complete with wailing female vocals, Robin S chord progressions, and comedy crash cymbals. It’s genius.

Carnival also seems like a good excuse to post some dancehall, so here is a not-that-new-and-really-quite-random-but-frankly-amazing mix from Austrian (yes, Austrian) outfit, G Spot Sound. It’s awesome.

And finally, for those lucky enough to have tickets to Red Bull’s Carnival party on Monday (free food! free booze!), here is Major Lazer’s new video for ‘Get Free’. The original video was good but this one is great.
