As premiered on the Brackles show on Rinse Fm this collaboration between HDD Resident, Murlo, and Fam, Famous Eno , is bonkers. Some exciting out there grime from this duo, we should be hopefully getting some more music from them soon enough.

As with all things Murlo, he’s been up to a whole lot of dutty madness. He got interviewed by Vice Magazine and gave them a nice new tune to give away.

Keep an eye on his soundcloud as he always has remixes and exclusives on there. For example he has his remix of Drippin’s Adrenaline and his must have Meleka and Kevin Gates Blend which ha been supported by the likes of Brenmar.

To celebrate our one-off event Sweat It Out with fellow London promoters Yo Mama! we are giving away our Bubble Pon Lumidee refix for free download. HDD resident Murlo produced this riddim (Bubble It Riddim) which we blended with the vocal of Lumidee’s summer classic Never Leave You to create this dancehall refix.

HDD & Style & Swagger in Mixmag


The November issue of Mixmag features a piece on the rise of Dancehall in clubland by Seb Wheeler expertly titled ‘Riddim Is A Dancer’. HDD residents Kazabon, The Large and Why Delila under their Style and Swagger guise were interviewed alongside Gabriel Heatwave on how they see the scene. Here’s an excerpt from the piece.

A lot of my friends come to our nights not really liking dancehall, says Karen by the end of the night they’re asking me to make them a mix CD! The sound is made for dancing but it is also an incredible spectacle, as Suze points out. You know if you go to a dance you are going to get a unique experience; the interaction between you, the MC and the crowd is never going to happen again. She’s describing the way that everyone in the booth and on the dancefloor hypes each other into a frenzy. At the last Hipsters Don’t Dance a gaggle of girls crowded round the decks lapping up the tunes while spontaneous dance-offs broke out, both guys and girls trying to out-wiggle each other.

We were delighted to have HDD so well represented in the piece and want to thank Mixmag for listing us as one of the top 5 dancehall nights in the UK.

Grab yourself a copy to read the piece in full and to check out Style and Swagger’s DJ chart. The girls also recorded this exclusive mix for Mixmag.net
