World Carnival #3

HDD World Carnival #3

For our third edition of our World Carnival mix series we decided to focus on future and classic Carnival anthems. The result being a flow between genres in a way that replicates what we felt is the perfect carnival experience. Theree’s some Dancehall, Azonto, Soca, Garage (We had to! It’s a London Thing) and other sorts of Tropical goodness. We had to make sure to include our headliners of our World Carnival themed Party that we are holding on the 25th of August, Dre Skull and So Shifty. HDD fam Murlo is also included as we switch from Jamaica, to Germany, to South Africa to Ghana to Trinidad to Nigeria and of course England.

World Carnival #2

Hipsters Dont Dance World Carnival #2 Mix

7 months after our first World Carnival mix we are back with the sequel. This mix spans not only our musical influences but represents the sound of our heritage. The music that this generation of diasporas (Trinidad and Nigeria in particular) are making. So we have music from countries as diverse as Ghana, Trinidad, UK, France, Nigeria, Portugal and Germany amongst others. For us combing genres such as Soca, Azonto, House and Tropical Bass is natural and something that we have nurtured through our club night. We wanted to replicate the sounds we know are orignating from carnivals in Port of Spain, Calabar and London. We hope that you enjoy this mix, this is what we believe is our World Carnival.
