The Carnival Session: LTJ Bukem. Mala, Awesome Tapes From Africa

Room 2 Keep Hush Takeover:
& More TBA
Since the inception of Notting Hill Carnival in 1966, the festival has grown into one of finest celebrations of African-Carribean culture and community in the world. Over 1 million people, from all walks of life take to the streets of Notting Hill, every August Bank Holiday weekend to celebrate fresh food, flamboyant costumes, sound systems, a variety of cultures and more.
Sadly, in recent years, the media has focused on the few negatives of the event rather than the overwhelming positives and we want to play our part in celebrating what’s great about Carnival; the coming together of different cultures and musical sounds to get down on the final weekend of August every year.
So, with great honour we present The Carnival Session. A celebration of Notting Hil Carnival featuring pioneers of drum and bass and dubstep respectively LTJ Bukem DJ and DEEP MEDi boss Mala, the sounds of Africa delivered through Awesome Tapes From Africa‘s cassette player and Afriquoi‘s DJ & Percussion show which brings together house, soca, hiphop, soul and jungle. One of the finest hosts in the game SP:MC will host LTJ Bukem’s set, whilst Labyrinth resident Nick Castle and Dropout Disco will play supporting sets in the main room.
Over in Room 2, community-driven underground music platform Keep Hush will be running things. Having grown from throwing secret parties in Oxford to hosting and live streaming some of the biggest names in the UK grime and bass scene, Keep Hush have found their own, original path in one of the most competitive scenes on the globe. Founders Fred CC and Freddy Masters will take to decks in Room 2, with Scar Duggy and more TBA as their invited guests.
It’s truly a privilege to be able to celebrate this festival with the likes of Mala and LTJ Bukem and we can’t to throw a proper Notting Hill Carnival party with 1,200 of you on Sunday 26th August.

“Bass does something to me. I absolutely immersed myself in Drum & Bass during my teens and early twenties, and when Dubstep came along I was thrown into that love once again, not just the music, but the whole community surrounding it.
Working in the industry has been a dream for me, and being involved in such a vibrant scene means that I constantly come across incredibly talented individuals who I just want to shout about and that’s what I use the UKBM platform for, to promote talent whether known or new.”
