To celebrate Notting Hill Carnival and the HDD x Swing Ting World Carnival party on 24th August at Birthdays. We have all teamed up to release a zip full of remixes, blends and edits to get you in the mood. Sharda, Famous Eno , The OG Mr Fox, Swing Ting and Samrai have all contributed to the Zip. You know what to expect! Ps there is an extra special gift if you download the zip in full.
You may have heard us playing this bashment edit of TLC’s No Scrubs at past HDD parties. It’s a fun blend we made of the RnB classic with Sandra Melody’s (who some of you may know from her cut on this riddim) take on the song. Get the free download here.
Inspired by dancehall riddims and the recent work of two of our favourite producers Murlo (Quartz EP) and Dubbel Dutch (Self Help Riddim), we have decided to launch the HDD Strictly Riddims mix series focusing on our favourite instrumentals. With this series we hope to increase appreciation for dancehall riddims and instrumentals as we feel that in dancehall the productions and producers don’t often get the props they deserve. The 13th mix in the series is by Samrai from Manchester crew Swing Ting. If you don’t know about Samrai, you should! Not only a great DJ (make sure you see him when you can) but a great producer as well. His mix focuses on well i’ll let him describe it:
“Going for a 12″ version excursions selection ft. 80s computer / digital dancehall into 90s with a few 00s pieces to finish off as I thought they hadn’t been covered as much by the series.”
You can check out all the 12″s here.
You can download the mix here.

It’s been a busy start to the year for Burna Boy, the release of his video for Tonight and some international recognition (3rd in the ones to watch list of 2013 on Large Up and also on Shimmy Shimmy). We are big fans of Burna Boy here at HDD, so we decided to collect a bunch of his tracks from his two mixtapes (Burn Notice and Burn Idnetity) and various singles that we really enjoyed. Also included in the Zip is the Murlo remix of Tonight (which is getting airplay on radio in Nigeria) and our refix of Abeg Abeg Abeg. We decided to give the song even more of a dancehall twist by adding the immortal and incredibly catchy Buzz Riddim. You can get the Zip here.
