We are back at The Shacklewell Arms this Saturday July 5th. You can find us in the back room recreating the feeling of Carnival in the middle of Dalston. On the night we will have residents Murlo alongside HDD head honchos and party starters Kazabon & Hootie Who.
It’s been a 2 months since the last session so we are incredibly excited to be back. We are on the road to carnival, you don’t want to miss out! Fete hard or go home!!! More info here.
Great kwaito song that has taken the rest of Africa by storm. The video is great as well, different types of dancing including some great suicide drops. It’s well worth your time, hat tip to Terry G for covering it and hence it showing up on my radar.
The song that has tore up our raves for the past couple of months get it’s own video. The thing that i love about this song (not including the fact that it’s a Lisa Hype vocal on Go Go Club riddim) is that it ignites feelings of summers past with UK folk but may not mean to same to others. So not only is this song great but it ignites nostalgia in a completely different way that the legends sets that litter the clubs and festivals of England. Either way it’s banging and you should grab it here from their free EP.
You can find more from Rizzla here.
And more from Blk. Adonis here.
The Nigerian twins P-Square who brought us Chop My Money and Alingo have released what we think might be the new Oliver Twist. Personally features P-Square’s RnB vocal stylings over a beat which fits nicely with the house trend we are seeing in Nigerian pop right now. The video proves the boys can dance as well as they sing – paying tribute to the late great MJ’s videos and moves.
The Large dropped her new mix late Friday afternoon and we had to post it this weekend because it’s that good. The Fresh Fruits mix combines all that she loves dancehall, soca and its musical cousins. Exclusives from Murlo, Rizzla and more and drops from Machel and more. This mix is great and will be in the running for best of the year. There is such a great balance of stuff on here and many slept on songs. For example Spice’s Nincompoo which won’t get as much love as it should from other musical outlets. Go listen to it now, also artwork by Robin Clare is not to be sniffed at.
