Big up to all of our fans celebrating the holidays. As part of our annual tradition we visit Dyker Heights Christmas Lights in Brooklyn. This year we got to meet B&R Christmas Decorators, and they told us about this amazing charity, Michael’s Cause (#michaelscause), that is raising funds to support research for Muscular Dystrophy. Give Michael and his family some holiday cheer this year at http://www.michaelscause.org/.
We’re back this week with a mid-week mix down that’s heavy on the Chutney and EDM side of things. We pay tribute to the legends Sonny Mann (mega hit Loota La) and Sundar Popo. Both gone, but never forgotten on the dance floor. Raise your glasses and move your feet to the best of the best when it comes to the chutney.
Fry fish and cook up
We also have hits from Baauer (Harlem Shake), Don Omar (Danza Kuduro), Rihanna (Rockstar 101). Not one to forget our Soca fans, we have some big Soca tunes by Lavaman with Kerwin Du Bois, Hypasounds (big up our Bajan fans out of Barbados), and Zoelah.

We are back again this week with some more cool mixes to keep you frosty and dry in this heatwave we have upon us this summer. First, we wanna big up everyone who enjoyed their 4th of July, and all of the neighborhood kids who had a safe and fun time with the fireworks shows in and around New York City.
Cookup, fry fish, and hot pepper sauce
To keep up with our theme of Taste the Caribbean and our appetite, we’ve decided to share a photo of what we are chowing down on while mixing in the studio. The beautiful DJ Nims whipped up some cookup, fry fish, and her own brand of hot pepper sauce.
Pepsi Cola Display in LIC
We also took some time this week to check out the LIC Food and Flea Market in Long Island City, New York. While on our way to the Macys 4th of July fireworks display. Definitely worth a trip if you can get lucky and get a good parking and avoid traffic while leaving LIC.
