We are so ready for this one! It’s Akito’s birthday and things are definitely going to get wavey this Saturday night at Hub16. We are really looking forward to djing alongside Famous Eno, Fools & Rushmore, Moleskin and of course the Sub Skank djs. If you managed to RSVP and get your name on the list we will see you on the dancefloor! #ridethetsunami

This month HDD falls on Halloween weekend so we have asked a big bad producer Famous Eno (Mixpak) to join us and duppy the dance. He will be helping us bring some madness to the back room of The Shacklewell Arms. As usual we will be recreating the feeling of carnival in the middle of Dalston but this month there might be some ghoulish antics as it is Halloween weekend after all!
The Bogle and ‘Duppy Wine’ are encouraged! Fete Hard or go Home!
£5 on the door from 11pm til 3am but it’s £3 entry for all in costume or you can email us to be added to our £3 list.

Machel Montano’s first offering this scoca season comes with a really nice lyric video. Nice sing-a-long bits in this one and we can see it being a grower.
Cara Cara is easily one of the best hip hop songs of the year but will not get it’s due because well we know. K.O is back with his follow up Son of a Gun, although it’s not as vibey as the summer hit it still goes.
The Mavins are very interesting in the sense that teaming up together makes the weaker members bigger and have a bigger platform. If you look at it as a football team with Don Jazzy the manager, Tiwa the star player and the others a mixture of veterans and Newbies. Adaboi continues where Dorobucci left off, vibey, highlifey and fun. Something you can play and your gran would skank to. If your Gran doesn’t skank we feel bad for you.
