Notting Hill Carnival Special – Mixed by Kemarr

Dancehall Jungle Drum 'n' bass Reggae

August is coming to an end and, on any other given year, this very bank holiday weekend would be devoted to Notting Hill Carnival; to sound system culture, steel bands and a celebratory parade, plus a mashup of reggae, soca, dancehall and more.

However, Carnival will not be hitting the streets of west London this year due to the pandemic, with organisers instead lining up several alternative events in efforts to keep the spirit of Carnival alive.

East London-based DJ, designer and No Signal mainstay Kemarr is doing his bit to keep the Carnival flames burning too, as he delivers this specialist mix filled with riddims, remixes and lots (and lots!) of Vybez.

“This mix is my take on a day at Carnival,” Kemarr says. “It moves between reggae, jungle and drum’n’bass, with dancehall from the 90s through to the 2010s in there too. I’ve also selected some newer bashment tracks. The mix ends with some more progressive takes on the genre and overall vibe that I’m known for, for now.”

“I created this thinking about which songs I would typically hear walking through the four corners of Carnival,” he adds. “Though, I haven’t included any soca bits – next time! There’s a strong 90s focus here as well, as that’s my favourite era when it comes to Jamaican music.”
