You can't help but smell Carnival in the air right about now and to get you even more ready for the mad weekend ahead, there's a rumble brewing. London's Hipsters Don't Dance DJ duo are taking on Manchester's finest Swing Ting at this weekend's World Carnival event at Birthdays. Advance tickets have already sold out and if you've got them you're a lucky sod, but if you haven't it's not all bad as there will be a few on the door too, so head on down.
To get us in the mood, everyone involved has teamed up and slapped together a .ZIP stuffed with exclusive edits, remixes and blends from the likes of Joey B, Platt, Samrai and the Hipsters Don't Dance crew. It's exactly what you'd expect — frantic dancehall and bolshy bashment — and we think you're going to love it. Stream the whole thing below and then download it from here.
Then why not watch this little video teaser for the big night. Anyone got a spare ticket?
