This year Hyponik were kindly invited over to West London for the Red Bull Music Academy x Major Lazer party at Notting Hill Carnival. It’s pretty safe to say that RBMA don’t procrastinate when it comes to throwing a free party. Within an hour of getting through the gate we were well fed on Caribbean treats and already suffering from taurine-induced heart palpitations.
It was slightly discouraging to see Skrillex appear as the special guest but, to be fair, he played to the occasion just right. Rita Ora‘s surprise appearance with Major Lazer was champion, complimented by sweltering performances from Doc Daneeka, Lil Silva b2b Mele, Lunice, David Rodigan and Sean Paul. Whilst back stage we were treated to yet more delicious Jamaican forage, rum punch and a quick chat with a selection of artists on the bill.
