The Beat of Carnival: August 2023 (DJ Mix)
“This mix takes you through all the emotions of Carnival,” Andre “DJ Puffy” Parris tells Apple Music on his sizzling Carnival prep set. “I’m here to guide you from the house to the pregame to the stage on Carnival day. The mood starts nice and easy—as we like to say in the Caribbean, to make sure you’re in the right mood. Then I highlight the top songs from most of the major [regions] this year for a true representation of what’s been dominating every single carnival this year.” The Barbadian DJ—winner of the Red Bull 3Style World DJ Championships in 2016—pulls off another prize-winning combination of skill and selection here.
