'An ode to our favourite corner of Carnival'
For the next installment of 'Up On The Roof', we thought we'd re-stage a little ode to our favourite corner of the biggest street party in Europe, prescribing not just the talents of one Carnival King, Good Times legend Norman Jay, after his 3 appearances for us last year and awesome May Day bank holiday slot, but also Notting Hill legends Sancho Panza, with founders Matt Brown & Jimmy K-Tel spinning after an extended Good Times 3 hour set from Norman.
As the Good Times founder, Member of the British Empire and all round good egg, Norman has represented the entire spectrum of black music, from soul, funk, disco, reggae and jazz, right through to the more contemporary sounds of house, garage and drum'n'bass.
Norman's legendary Good Times sound system, has been the go-to spot at Europe's largest street party, the Notting Hill Carnival, for 30 years.
Good Times was THE party that changed the face of the Notting Hill Carnival and which has become a Summertime fixture at festivals worldwide. Jay set up his first sound system, Great Tribulation, in 1979 with his brother Joey which became Good Times in 1981, the start of a 30-year residency at Notting Hill Carnival. Norman changed the face of the music played there, introducing a range of gritty, soulful styles to complement the predominantly reggae-based sound systems. The move paved the way for the open-minded Carnival we know today, with Good Times still at its core.
From churches to canals, warehouses to boats, Sancho Panza know how to throw a shape, throw a party and how to make special spaces turn magical. Reknowned above all for their annual shindig for 10000+ people on Middle Row on the August Bank Holiday; just around the corner from Norman's Good Times bus; Matt Brown & Jimmy K-Tel are well versed in playing outdoor spaces, and we're looking forward to getting down to them 'Up On The Roof' after Norman.
