This song is the flipside to a song like differentology, Lea-Anna’s new song is a gorgeous reggae tinged love song. Lea-Anna expresses her desire for a certain someone to find her love. It’s fantastic in it’s way that it’s restrained. The vocals and instrumental find space and compliment each other well (the song is produced by her frequent collaborator Wundah). Not sure when this is coming out but make sure you keep an eye out for it.
After the success of our debut event at the Lockside Lounge, Hipsters Dont Dance On A Ragga Tip is back for another night of World Carnival fun. This time we are joined by producer and HDD favourite Famous Eno. Fresh from his storming set on London’s important Just Jam, Famous Eno will be bringing us his take on Grime, Bashment and more. Of course we will have our Residents Murlo, The Large, Illanja and Kazabon & Hootie Who on the decks bringing you the best in Hip Hop, Tropical and Dancehall. Don’t forget our motto is Fete Hard or Go Home! Get ready to wuk and wine by pumping our latest mix (below) through your speakers.
Wine is one of our favourites on the EP due to that demanding intro followed by Cee Gee willing you to ‘make love to the concrete‘ and Douster’s clever sampling – phone interference never sounded so good!
Like Gyptian’s Hold Yuh and Mavado’s Never Believe You, Wine Like a Genie has piano keys that make you fall in love with it. Dancehall tunes built on piano keys are winners in our book and Like A Genie can now be added to this category. You will be singing this one all summer.
Kantana reminds us a little of Gappy Ranks on Dollar Sign, his vocal over the rolling guitar riff and dancehall stabs make it dancefloor-ready and Keida adds the feminine touch to the EP on Never Lose. Listen to the EP below or buy it from Juno, iTunes or Boomkat
It’s that time again; we are back at The Libertine Pub in Borough this Saturday May 18th for the best house party in a pub in the whole of London. Kazabon & Hootie Who will be providing you with a soundtrack of party starters to get you in the mood for clubbing. Hits from Hip Hop, Dancehall and R’n’B will get your Saturday night kicked off correctly whether you are catching up with friends over pizza and drinks (or Eno’s famous wings) or getting ready for a night of raving and misbehaving! Check the facebook event page for more details.
You can also listen to a taster of what HDD House Party is like with this 2 hour recording of our set from our February session. Put it on at work and have a sly little dance!
