The Major Lazer and Red Bull Music Academy party at last year’s Notting Hill Carnival was dangerously vibey. Notting Hill is one the main reasons to be proud of London, but when those guys come together to throw a party a certain magic fills the air. Carnival magic bitches!
This year they’ve stepped up their game just that little bit more, so frankly we’re worried about the health of you guys because we’re going to be streaming it around the globe for those cats unfortunate enough to be unable to see it in person.That means you get to see and hear sets from legends like David Rodigan, Machel Montano and Sean Paul as well as probably hearing what the future sounds like from guys like Hudson Mohawke, Lunice, Mele, Lil Silva and well you can see the flyer. Shit will get crazy, that’s the only thing we can guarantee.
The heroic James Murphy playing some of his favourite records in the Boiler Room. It’s times like these we lose any kind of self control and turn into screaming, adoring fans. Losing your cool is alright sometimes.
Lunice whipping up a whole heap of carnival hype, we swear the guy just exudes excitement and has the riddims to back it all up. Just like the last time we had him on the show, deciding which screen grab to use was damn near impossible.
Time to get fast and loose to that Poirier hustle. Boogat is also one of the only guys we’ve ever seen who suits a trilby and together they make that music to really make a party move. Show some respect!
The best way to listen to Jam City is with your eyes closed in a flotation tank. The lucid dreams are so intense you’ll think they’re a new pilot from creators of Magic Schoolbus and Superjail going back to back.

We’d like to dedicate this one to the current unrest in Egypt. As far as we know Egyptrixx has no geographical ties to the land of the Pharaohs, we do believe this will help ease the countries political disrupt. Although, it may have a pretty counter-productive effect on the amount of rioting.
