There’s a very simple equation to this yearly round up from UK raving specialists The Heatwave. They make it easy for the fans and compile all the largest tunes that will be running Carnival that year — more specifically Notting Hill — and rinse them off in one mix similar to how they would run the stage or truck show in the streets of London come August. Gabriel knows just what it takes behind the wheels to make large crowds bruk out in a fever. Whether reggae, dancehall, soca, UK funky, azonto, rap or r&b they always know the time and with this mix, they really share the live experience. Stream and download below, get the tracklist here.
