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.

March HDD Videos

So we are finally coming off our March session where we had Murlo, Ulysses 82 and Gabriel Heatwave (with Rubi Dan) on the mic). The crowd loved it and we had to capture some videos of the night for those that missed it.

Soca Season 2011

This Thursday at the Queen of Hoxton, Heatwave (and also Mc Prankster aka Trini Gladiator) return for a carnival special. In celebration of the night we have decided to post some of a favourite soca songs this year.

Benjai – Whine To The Side

A tune that shows that you can enjoy carnival wherever you are, so even if you aren’t in the middle of trinidad carnival you can embrace that fact and still whine to the side.


Buhwamoder – Bend right over
Only two words to describe this song. SLAP! CHOP!


Ziggy Rankin’ – Mango Tree
Last year Patch was asking how many inches of pipe you wanted, this year Ziggy is asking you to climb up his mango tree.


Shal Marshall -Whole Day/ Motorbike
Whilst a lot of people preferred speakerboxx on the flagship riddim, whole day has got more plays at HDD HQ.


Blaxx – Tanti Woi
Swahili riddim has a lot of good cuts but this one’s call and response reminds me of that scene in coming to America where Eddie Murpy’s future wife is being presented to him.
