HDD x Kling Klang Episode

HDD Kling Klang Episode

Dre Skull’s Kling Klang Riddim gets a vocal from the Westside in the latest HDD refix. Kling Klang Episode brings new life to Dr Dre’s Next Episode by combining it with Dre Skull’s bashy dancehall riddim. Remember to support the original artists Dre Skull and Dr Dre.

HDD Highlights : HDD World Carnival Video

If you missed our World Carnival party a few weeks ago you missed one hell of a night! We were joined by Dre Skull, So Shifty, Dub Boy, Atki2, The Large, Murlo and special guests Schlachthofbronx at Visions Video Bar in Dalston for our first ever carnival party. The video shot by Anthony Olagun and soundtracked by Dre Skull’s Kling Klang riddim makes us want to do it all over again!

Vybz Kartel & Dre Skull x My Crew

The World Boss may be locked up but his music keeps on giving. The Deluxe Edition of Kingston Story was released last week on CD and vinyl by Mixpak in association with Vice, and the latest single from the Dre Skull produced album also gets the Vice treatment with this video for My Crew. The video and tune go hand in hand with Vybz’s street anthem soundtracking images of the Portmore and street life in the Gaza City.

Catch Dre Skull at our World Carnival party this Saturday 25th August at Visions Video Bar

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.

Mighty Machel

Machel Montano, winner of the Soca Monarch competition

Tomorrow RBMA will release it’s tickets for the annual Major Lazer Carnival party. The party is usually a mixture of RBMA artists and Mad Decent’s crew and this year is no exception as Uk faves Mele, Lil Silva, Raf Riley, Doc Daneeka, Hudson Mohawke dj alongside Mad Decent faves Lunice and Nicky Da B. Sean Paul will hopefully reach back in his catalogue on the day and of course it wouldn’t be an event without the ubiquitous David Rodigan appearance. The most interesting act on the day is Dre Skull and Machel Montano, we have talked about how much we love Dre’s work numerous times but we haven’t talked about Machel.

Hipsters Dont Dance World Carnival

HDD World Carnival

On the 25th of August we will be throwing a party that has been 3 years in the making. During those years we have brought the sound of World Carnival to the clubs of the UK, a sound that is distinctly familiar but not recognized and under represented in the UK clubbing scene. We wanted to recreate the feeling of walking around not only Notting Hill Carnival but other Carnivals across the world. This year we get to do this during the August Bank Holiday at an amazing and intimate venue in East London with some of our favourite DJ’s and Producers around. Dre Skull whose production is almost always heard at our raves is headlining. Fresh off his work with the likes of Major Lazer, Snoop Lion in addition to his own riddims. So Shifty also join us, the German tropical dons (who are also our columnists) whose recent Rumba EP is amazing. Dubboy and ATKI2 who have been running all things tropical and bassy in Bristol for years now. Of course it wouldn’t be the same without some of the HDD Fam. Murlo has been a resident for a year and a bit and is someone production and taste mirrored ours from the get go. The Large has been there from the start and has always held us down especially on the dancehall end of things. These are all people that in one way or another have helped shape the HDD sound and we are so overjoyed to be able to throw a carnival party with all of them. Also we will be having surprises on the night itself so make sure you look out for them. We wouldn’t have been able to throw this party without the support of all of you who have come and skanked at previous HDD raves, so once again Thank You!

We would like to ask all you who are attending to bring your countries flag, imagine a sea of people waving flags on the night. Pump Yuh Flag!
