The Heatwave's top tunes for Notting Hill Carnival 2014

The soundsystem crew pick the tracks you'll be dutty wining to this year

1/5

Jah Cure – ‘All of Me’

‘You just can’t beat a reggae cover of a banging R&B singalong. Jah Cure takes John Legend to Jamaica and everything is perfect.’


2/5

QQ – ‘One Drop’

‘The biggest dance craze in bashment this year. A club full of women doing the one drop is a sight to behold. A whole street one-dropping at Carnival might well cause the fabric of space-time to rupture.’


3/5

Kerwin Du Bois – ‘Too Real’

‘Every year a soca hit comes flying out of the Trinidad & Tobago carnival in February and takes the world by storm – this is the 2014 vintage. There were huge singalongs when it played off the truck at Berlin carnival, scenes that will doubtless be repeated at Notting Hill.’


4/5

Fuse ODG – ‘Dangerous Love’ (feat Sean Paul)

‘Love how Fuse keeps linking up with dancehall artists: Elephant Man, Stylo G, Konshens and now crossover king Sean Paul. It’s like they took essence of summer and put it in a three-minute pop song.’


5/5

Alkaline – ‘Gyal Bruk Out’

‘Alkaline is the hottest new artist in dancehall and this is the hit song that gets played in every Heatwave dance. One of the craziest basslines in the world, so it’s perfect for those massive speaker boxes at Carnival.’
