Here's Your New Jam Just in Time For Notting Hill Carnival

Listen to our premiere of Orange Hill's "Up Wid It!" featuring Mr. Vegas.

Orange Hill is the project of British-Ghanaian DJ, producer and radio presenter Ras Kwame, known for its fusion of Caribbean riddims and electronic sounds.

The London-based project is now readying the release of The Carnival EP, due tomorrow, an ode to the vibe and atmosphere of Notting Hill Carnival.

"Up Wid It!," which features Jamaican dancehall veteran Mr. Vegas, is built on some high-energy Afro Bashment beat work. It's the perfect soundtrack to any carnival season.


"The Carnival EP is a project inspired by Jamaican street slang and Notting Hill Carnival," Ras Kwame tells OkayAfrica. "This EP is all about vibes and energy, and there's few people who bring more vibes and energy than Mr. Vegas. We always wanted to work with each other so we just had to get him on one of our tracks, and of course he brought it. UP WID IT!"

Listen to our premiere of Orange Hill and Mr. Vegas' "Up Wid It!,"which is coming out on Delicious Vinyl Island.
