Kazabon & Hootie Who at Forever

Forever_Week6_A5_PRINT-page-001

 

We are really looking forward to supporting one of our favourite producers Dubbel Dutch this Friday at Forever at Birthdays. Dubbel Dutch is part of the Mixpak family and is one of the producers behind the recent Popcaan album as well as a stream of remixes spanning RnB, afropop and dancehall that we have been rinsing at our parties over the past few years. If you are in Manchester this week you can catch him at Frontin alongside Jus Now, but for the London crew all roads lead to Birthdays this Friday! More info and tickets here.

HDD x Temperature

TEMPERATURE-OCTOBER-2014

We are joining forces with Smutlee to bring you a night full of dancefloor heat at the ballroom of Brixton’s Dogstar. Brixton get ready!

You should all know Smutlee by now but if you don’t he’s a badman DJ, producer, and mixtape specialist who never disappoints. His sets have been described as a bass heavy brew of UK funky, bashment, hip hop, dancehall, moombahton and his own incredibly popular productions. This guy has been murdering dancefloors as Yo Yo and Fabric resident for years so get ready to work up a sweat and give your Nike Airs a workout.

We (Kazabon & Hootie Who) will be repping HDD and will get you doing the Dutty Wine and the Azonto with a mix of dancehall, soca, afropop and more.

It’s free entry from 10pm til late so get down to Dogstar and watch the temperature get tun up!

PS. The venue requires I.D. or will refuse entry! Come prepared and ready to bruk out!

HDD House Party September

HDD-HP_MONTHLY_WEB

It’s that time of the month again, time to dust off some classics for HDD House Party at The Libertine. We will be tucking into one of the Libertine’s great pizzas and if we are lucky Famous Eno might treat us to some of his famous buffalo wings. It’s more low key than our events at The Shacklewell but just as much fun, whether you want to get warmed up for a night out or just want to catch up with friends we have got you covered.  If you haven’t been before it sounds a little something like this. Join us this Saturday (September 20th) from 8pm til 1am at The Libertine.
