HDD X Style Up

HDD Style-Up_440

As you can tell from our other blends, sometimes R&B and dancehall just work so well together and the same goes for our new blend Style Up. Chante Moore’s sometimes slept on hit Straight Up gets a new lease of life on Pop Style Riddim. As always support the original artists Chante Moore and DJ Frass. Stream or download below.

Hipsters Don’t Dance x Mixpak FM

Calabar Festival from inie bango on Vimeo.

We were incredibly proud to be asked by our favourite record label Mixpak to participate in their Mixpak FM mix series. We focused on doing a afrobeats/pop mix of stuff we have been enjoying for ages. It was really nice to actually focus on this and try and capture a tiny bit of what the carnival is like. Above is a video from 4 years ago, i think it was my 2nd of my 3 visits. Get the tracklist and download link here, or stream below.


HDD Highlights: HDD February 1st

Our February session was one of our best yet at The Shacklewell Arms, so  for those of you who missed it, and for those of you who want to re-live it here are some excellent shots by Egle Trezzi above, and a recording of Kazabon & Hootie Who’s set below. HDD head honchos and party starters Kazabon & Hootie Who ran through everything from dancehall to soca to afro pop to tropical bass, in true world carnival style.

Remember Hipsters Don’t Dance is the 1st Saturday of every month at The Shacklewell Arms.

As we get ready to celebrate 4 years of Hipsters Don’t Dance this live recording of our set from our September party is sure to get you ready for the celebrations on December 7th. We are really excited about having HDD favourites Poirier and Serocee join us for our birthday bash at The Shacklewell Arms. This recording really reflects the HDD vibe and we can’t wait to celebrate with you all on December 7th. Check out the Facebook Event Page for more info on our party.

HDD Highlights: Murlo Live at HDD Oct

At our last HDD party Murlo did a warm up set and ran through a bunch of hip hop, dancehall and RnB. That meant Dj Mustard, Dembow and Mavado classics all in 1 hour! Don’t forget to check out HDD faves Kalado, Tifa and Teeflii in there as well. It’s a great representation of how we get things started at our monthly raves (1st Saturday of the month) at Shacklewell Arms. Next one is November 2nd with an extra special set from Kazabon & Hootie Who.
