Karnival Tropikal

Another ripping line up of DJs spinning some of the sweetest tropical carnival beats from the Caribbean, Latin America and Africa.

Tonight we welcome DJ Inko a remixer and selector from Athens who's been catching our attention with his releases on Carnibal Records and his own killer latin edits and hip hop mash ups. And from Bristol the mercurial Mango Park - an exceptional pan-tropical selector and promoter of the afro-centric club night Lengoma. And downstairs host Movimientos' Cal Jader is joined by regular Karnival TropiKal mash up queen Marsali (Fftang Fftang!).

Whilst upstairs BB resident Madera Verde is joined by It's A Worldwide Thing podcast host IAMRISHA to complete the line up for a two floor extravaganza of the finest carnival flavours all the way through from Latin, Afro, Reggae, Dancehall, Cumbia, Calypso, Soca, and Samba with plenty of Bass and Latin House flavours …
