Scales x I am for Real

Dancehall vibes from Naija’s Skales on this one. We reckon he may have been influenced by Bam Bam and this early one from Ri Ri.

Burna Boy x Rockstar


Posted for archive purposes. This new record label better find him a good beat.

Come Out The Dance

COTD_WEB_440

This Thursday we are launching our new monthly night with Run Dem Sound’s Charlie Dark and we are pretty damn excited about it! Come Out The Dance is our new dancehall focused club night and we are launching it with guest selector Disorda at Dalston’s Dance Tunnel. Expect riddims from all eras alongside some soca and afropop in true HDD World Carnival style! It’s free before 12 and £5 after, more info here.

Melissa Steel x Burning Down feat Wizkid

Melissa Steel follows up her rework of Lea-Anna’s kisses with another bashment ballad but this time with Wizkid on the guest verse. Melissa certainly knows how to pick her collaborators in true world carnival style (first Popcaan via JA and now Wizkid via Naija). Looking forward to hearing more from Melissa Steel in 2015.

Tee Da Supreme x Dance With Me (Feat. Shadz)


Often enough we tend to gravitate towards for western influenced afropop. It’s a thin line but more often than not its leabing toward modern day hip hop or house. This one is more of a throwback and is kind of interesting.
