Since Urban Nerds’ inception 5 years back in 2007, the annual Carnival Special has, along with NYE, become a landmark Nerds night, warming-up for London’s world-renowned Notting Hill Carnival weekend and what’s without doubt the favourite celebration in the UN calendar!
Over the years we’ve taken the Carnival party from the summer loving courtyard of Brick Lane’s 93 Feet East, on to mind blowing warehouse spaces and East London clubs, selling out every year with an infamous mash-up of tropical inspired reggae, dancehall and electronic beats, alongside our favourite party inspired UK bass and dubstep sounds.
For our 2012 Carnival Special we take to Scala with UK bass leader, drum & bass innovator and producer extraordinaire, the mighty Breakage! DMZ promoters, dubstep leaders and scene originators, Digital Mystikz a.k.a Mala and Coki are on hand, as is the world renowned Hyperdub Receords boss, Kode9!
Numbers label head and Red Bull Music Academy alumni, Jackmaster will be bringing his unrivalled, eclectic deeper party selection whilst the True Tiger squad bring tear-out dubstep at its finest.
As well as Nerds residents Marcus Nasty and Rattus Rattus, Rinse FM and Hotwuk dons The Heatwave curate room two with some huge underground dancehall, reggae and bashment flavours! Purveyors of UK garage, the Merk Chicken crew take to room three with an unstoppable resident force mashing up UKG, 2-step and the rest, headed by legendary production outfit, Sunship!
Past Urban Nerds Carnival party starters have included Katy B, Congo Natty, Toddla T, Zinc, Tomb Crew, The Heatwave, Doorly, Schlachtofbronx, MJ Cole, Mampi Swift and Mumdance.
