To celebrate Nothing Hill Carnival we’ve handed over playlist duties to Busspepper who take us to the Caribbean with a selection of Soca and Dancehall tracks.
Busspepper organize Caribbean club nights across the capital and are hosting a special carnival weekend party at the Electric, Brixton tonight (Friday).
Bacchanal Friday will welcome Soca DJs Private Ryan, Jus Jay, DJ Markee, Shep Beats and MCs The HYPE MAN, Barrie Hype and Konata.
Travis World will also be on the decks at Bacchanal and he has selected some of his Soca favs to get you in the carnival mood.
