Carnival is almost upon us...
Belly Squad

Notting Hill Carnival is almost upon us, Europe's biggest street parade and one of the country's real cultural treasures.

Belly Squad are set to appear on Red Bull Music Academy's stage, taking part in Sunday's bass excursion.

Mangrove will play on Monday's parade line up, so Red Bull took the logical step of placing the two groups in the studio together.

Belly Squad's 'Lifestyle' is given a steel drum flavour, with Mangrove also adding a little taste of soca to this spicy re-work.

It's a neat project, one that brings together two vastly different elements of carnival spirit.

Tune in now.
