Westwood live from Notting Hill Carnival '95
with Jeru The Damaja & Mad Lion
I've posted parts of this tape over the years but here's the full 2 hour show (now in 320), with Jeru and Mad Lion performing and Westwood and his crew running through a ton of rap, ragga, miami bass and R&B. Whistles and horns are in full effect and the reactions to certain tunes really let you know what was big on the street at the time, as opposed to an extensive twitter debate with William from Worcestershire who's adamant everyone was listening to Outkast and Jay Z back then and GZA and Smoothe Da Hustler was just some backpack shit.
Also, I know it's (finally fucking) February but you can pretend it's August.
I've got the Carnival '96 tape so I'll post that up at some point. Anyone holding 1997? I'm not sure if they did a live broadcast for that one.
