Diplo at RBMA Notting Hill Carnival

The first year we did this there was no stage! Major Lazer, Rusko and Santi played at the crowd level. It definitely lent itself to an intimate DIY vibe that year. (2008)

The XX at RBMA Notting Hill carnival

“This was from the first tour I ever did with Diplo. He was like, ‘Dude, come to Europe with me. I do this thing called the Notthing Hill Carnival.’ It’s this huge reggae festival that happens in London and, like, 2 million people come. I was just walking around looking for people who had good style and were very English-looking. I walk up to these two kids and I’m like, ‘Hey guys, I’m taking pictures for Diplo, can I take your picture?’ They were like, ‘Oh, that’s so cool. We’re in this band called the xx and we’re recording with Diplo right now. Do you want to shoot the whole band?’ I was like, ‘Nah, I’ll just shoot you guys.’ I’m still kicking myself to this day—it turns out they’re one of the biggest bands in the world now.”
