We will be joining Roxxxan, Bounty’s Radi Dadi, Major Lezza and a Special Guest DJ at Man Down tomorrow night at London’s latest hot spot Basement. We are excited to be playing at Mand Down as when we went to one of their events at Tipsy, it was roadblock and the vibe was so right! Entry is guestlist only, check out the facebook event page here to get on the list and for more details. Expect RnB and ragga flavours!
As we get ready to celebrate four years of Hipsters Don’t Dance on December 7th with Poirier and Serocee, we have selected four of our favourite tunes from Poirier (look out for our top 4 x Serocee tunes next week). Choosing four tunes was a pretty tough task as Poirier has an amazing back catalougue of productions, remixes and refixes. Ever since he dropped palance during his set at Red Bull x Major Lazer Notting Hill Carnival party back in 2010 we knew we had to have him dj at one of our parties! If you are not familiar with his work these selections will give you a taste of what’s in store at our birthday bash on December 7th.
Blazin is on the same album (No Ground Under) as another favourite of ours Go Ballistic from back in 2007, it was probably around this time that we fell in love with Poirier’s productions. Blazin features Face T on vocals and the pair always work well as a team.
Poirier gives us an African drum laden version of Press Up with this remix which we feel falls in the same category as Aidonia’s Tip Pon Yuh Toe and Spice’s Hot Patty Wine. It is part of the Booty Based Mob compilation which you can get here by naming your price!
Its no secret that we love soca here at HDD HQ and last year Poirier’s Soca Road EP provided us with some fresh power soca with an international vibe. Bring It On is our favourite track on the EP and features Cape Town’s EJ Von Lyrik riding Poirier’s signature soca sound like a pro! Kazabon chose this tune as one of her honorable mentions for top tunes of 2012.
We all know Erup’s big hit but who know’s about the remix ep that came out with remixes of the tune by Poirier, Grahmzilla, Nick Catchdubs and Lunice?! Poirier’s remix is our favourite and still sounds fresh today.

This Wednesday the incredibly talented Stooki collective are launching their Geodesic mens jewellery collection for Topman and have invited us (Kazabon & Hootie Who) to dj at their party. Some of you may remember us djing at the very first Stooki launch at Red Bull Studios back in 2011 and it is wicked to see how the group have progressed since then. The Stooki x Topman Geodesic Collection Party is taking place at Visions in Dalston this Wednesday from 10pm and is free entry but you must be on the guestlist, so get signed up here and join the movement!

Busy continues his assault on pop hits with his take on Lorde’s Royals. He smartly gets rid of the og’s verse’s (something that all the hip hop versions should have done) and creates his own song. It’s catchy in that Busy way, although it would be nice to get some new original music from him, that Bumaye money got him chilling. Not that he doesn’t deserve it.
This video is not safe for work, unless you work in the adult entertainment industry. With that being said this is wonderful dembow song which just goes. Also of note is the bejewlled gun, more versace than in the Migos Versace video.
