We are joining forces with Smutlee to bring you a night full of dancefloor heat at the ballroom of Brixton’s Dogstar. Brixton get ready!
You should all know Smutlee by now but if you don’t he’s a badman DJ, producer, and mixtape specialist who never disappoints. His sets have been described as a bass heavy brew of UK funky, bashment, hip hop, dancehall, moombahton and his own incredibly popular productions. This guy has been murdering dancefloors as Yo Yo and Fabric resident for years so get ready to work up a sweat and give your Nike Airs a workout.
We (Kazabon & Hootie Who) will be repping HDD and will get you doing the Dutty Wine and the Azonto with a mix of dancehall, soca, afropop and more.
It’s free entry from 10pm til late so get down to Dogstar and watch the temperature get tun up!
PS. The venue requires I.D. or will refuse entry! Come prepared and ready to bruk out!

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.

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.
