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.

If you missed our collab with Swing Ting on Carnival Sunday check out what you missed above. If you were one of the may ravers who joined us palancing and skanking see if you can spot yourselves. It was such an amazing night and this video by Akito Hernshaw of Hub 16 definitely captures the vibe. Thanks again to Fox, Trigganom, Famous Eno, Murlo, Samrai, Joey B, Platt and Birthdays for helping us make it all happen.

Join us (Kazabon & Hootie Who) at The Libertine on Saturday for another HDD House Party. We will be tucking into one of the Libertine’s great pizzas while spinning your favourite house party classics, and if we are lucky Famous Eno may treat us to some of his famous wings too. It’s more low key than our events at The Shacklewell but just as much fun, if you haven’t been before it sounds a little something like this. Football fans! We got you covered too as the football will be shown. More info on our Facebook event page.
We are back at The Libertine on Saturday March 15th for great music, great vibes, and Famous Eno’s Buffalo wings at HDD House Party. We (Kazabon & Hootie Who) will be providing you with a soundtrack of party starters to get you in the mood for clubbing. It’s a little more laid back than our monthly parties at The Shacklewell Arms but it’s just as much fun! We will be kicking things off at 8pm but be sure to get down before 10pm if you want to sample the wings, trust us, they are the best in London! More info and directions here. The vibe will be something like this.
