Our last party at The Shacklwell Arms was a heater and definitely one of the best yet! Jasmine Solano joined us all the way from NYC and tore the place down with a very big set covering dancehall, soca and tropical bass. If you missed it you really missed out!

Back in May we joined Kiss My Teeth residents Can You Felix and Dizzietron at The Roundhouse in Camden for their first London event as part of Roundhouse Rising. We performed alongside AJ Holmes & The Hackney Empire and Fuse ODG – we even did the Azonto behind the decks as Fuse’s backing dancers/djs. The night was a lot of fun with great performances from all of the acts and a booty shaking contest with more booty than we bargained for!
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!
Saturday’s HDD was an eventful one! We had February snowfall which caused an hour long power cut at The Camp, but that didn’t stop us from having a HDD party. Effect Mode and Illaman gave us one hell of a performance playing tracks from their new project.
Illaman also treated us to a freestyle using the words South London, orange and nipple tassels, as suggested by the crowd. Watch out for big things from Effect Mode in 2012, the new project truly is UK hip hop at its finest!
Hipsters Dont Dance September session was part 2 of our carnival themed nights and was also a residents special. The place was bubbling early with Illanja’s rocksteady, ska and rub’a’dub selection.
Why Delila and The Large kept the dancefloor blazing with their dancehall sets, there was even some whining for the general and a bashment cover of Ace of Base! HDD DJs brought a mixed bag of hip hop r’n’b and dancehall, and new resident Murlo, did not disappoint with his mix of soca and funky bashment.
A HDD session is never complete without some Palancin! Here’s how it went down.
