It’s time to get down and dutty in October for the next Love Carnival. We’ve got two top guest selectas bringing you tropical bass and rhythms to make you sweat and make you move all night in South London’s favourite venue. Flying in from Montreal, Poirier (Ninja Tune/Nice Up!) brings some filthy soundsystem vibes, while dancefloor master Spiritual South brings his boxes full of carnival anthems. Plus the usual tropical shenanigans from The Love Carnival Soundsystem & Crew.
Drawing from a wide range of tropical riddims and urban electro, the power of Montreal-based DJ/producer Poirier’s bass blasts through any flimsy attempt to classify his music. Pinpointing the bits and pieces of dancehall beats, soca energy and electronic intensity is futile in the face of Poirier’s dance-driven creativity and air horn-worthy excitement. With releases on Ninja Tune and Nice Up!, tracks with Warrior Queen, a remix from Machinedrum, and a recent guest mix on Toddla T’s BBC Radio 1 show, Poirier is a man who just understands what works in the dance.
“Poirier, the man who seamlessly unites just about every genre into his mixes.” – THE FADER
“He’s been called Montreal’s answer to Diplo, but as he proves here, DJ-producer Ghislain Poirier has his own thing going on.” – THE GAZETTE
“A black belt in beats and bass.” – THE MIRROR
Spiritual South is the brainchild of Mark Robertson, a DJ, Music Producer and ‘mad about music’ collector. Inspired by hybrids of music that blur boundaries between Afro-American music and the rhythms, melodies, and arrangements of Latin America and Africa; Spiritual South has long been a champion of music from the hot zones whether it be behind the decks or in the studio - his ethos “creating, exposing and celebrating tropical dance music with musically like-minded, the world over”. As well as his own top releases, Spiritual South has also remixed for every top label around.
Spiritual South guarantees to deliver infectious tropical sounds and rhythms, aimed squarely at the hips, feet and dancefloor. Watch the ride!
Not forgetting on hosting duties we have the Love Carnival Sound System. DJ Cal Jader, and Selecta Mad Max will be running through the spectrum of fresh tropical riddims from Cumbia to Afrobeats, Dancehall, Moombahton and much more, while the mighty Fedzilla takes the mic with her multi-lingual lyricism and international flow. Plus cutting-edge visuals from Oddscene and decor our in house Tropical Angel.
