FITH at the Alibi

Our good friend Anthony(FITH) is throwing his Fire In The Hole party at the Alibi on Wednesday 17th, and the lineup is not to be missed. HDD favourites Garbriel Heatwave and Illaman will be alongside Yoni, Skinny Macho, Chloe, and a very special guest to bring you a selection of Hip Hop, Grime, Future, Garage, Dubstep, Jungle and of course Dancehall.

Weekend Mixes

With the British weather deciding to become tropical (not just the sun), there is nothing better than sitting in the park, having a bbq or just chilling out. However what do you choose to soundtrack these afternoons or evening enjoying the rays? Here are a selection of mixes that come HDD recommended.

Joe Grime Hot Wuk Mix
Deja Vu Fm’s Joe Grime made a promo mix for the next Hot Wuk (Royal Wedding Special next thursday), as Joe said its a mix of his favourite riddims old and new.

Heatwave Energy Bashment Mix
Speaking of Hot Wuk, Heatwave released a mix this week and its chocca full of party tracks including the Vybz/ Show me love mash, refix of Trick Me and my highlight of Mr Lexx on the Punany Riddim.
You can download it here.

Rob Pursey Zonin 2
The return to Rob’s classic Zonin mix which can only be described as a diverse look into a vibe that we all have. This edition features tracks from Twista, Adele, The Dream and Clams Casino. You can grab it at the Southern Hospitality blog.

Jazzy Jeff and Mick Boogie Summertime Mix
Two absolute legends in the game, take the summer mix to another level with this quick fire 50 track mix. Sadly it doesnt come in a large mp3 which is annoying to no end. Yanks might have the one up on us snce they have better weather than us but this mix doesn’d dissapoint. You can get it over at UNDRCRWN.

Physically Fit For Paddy’s Day

The lovely Why Delila is running her second Physically Fit night at The Big Chill Bar this coming Thursday. The night celebrates the best in bashment, dancehall and soca, and Gabriel Heatwave, Sub Fm’s Oil Gang and Wifey’s S Shaw will be bringing pure fire on the night. If that’s not enough to entice you, you should check out mixes by Gabriel Heatwave and S Shaw to get you warmed up for Thursday night

Thursday is also St Patrick’s day – a day where Irish people (and Plastic Paddys) all over the world remember Ireland’s patron saint by drinking themselves silly. Traditionally of course this was not always the case, I spent many a year attending town parades and ceilis celebrating Irish culture, which is a bit of fun once a year, but this year I am glad that I can combine Paddy’s day with my love of dancehall.

To help to you get in the mood for Paddy’s day and Physically Fit, here are my top 5 dancehall (and soca) drinking songs.


Beenie Man & Future Fambo – Get Drunk
Appleton is the drink of choice here for Beenie and Fambo, and we at HDD are also fond of some Appleton and ginger beer!

Beenie Man, Future Fambo & Busta Rhymes – Rum & Red Bull Remix
Beenie and Fambo are opting for Rum and Red bull this time, not sure if its the best choice if you want to avoid hangover the next day, but they seem to stick by it!

Gappy Ranks – Cup Full
Take Gappy’s advice and keep your cup full.

Dr Ring Ding – Polish Vodka
It’s not all about rum, as Dr ring Ding points out, if you are a vodka lover listen up.

Olatunji – Designated Driver
Remember to have a designated driver if you intend drinking as much as Future Fambo!
