Carnival 2014: FabricLive Playaz Carnival Special

  • Critics choice

Drum 'n' bass icon DJ Hype's Playaz crew know how to celebrate Carnival with a bang and plenty of booming bass frequencies, so join them if you want a hefty start to your weekend of Carnival partying. Accompanying Hype will be fellow D&B warriors Hazard, Pascal and Original Sin (playing back-to-back with Sub Zero) in Room One, while Room Two gets historical, celebrating 21 years of jungle: Goldie, Fabio & Grooverider, Kenny Ken, Ragga Twins, Bryan Gee and Hype, again, rinse out the tunes here.
