Hipsters Don’t Dance x May

HDD_MAY14_440

We are back at The Shacklewell Arms this Saturday May 3rd. 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 and Illanja alongside HDD head honchos and party starters Kazabon & Hootie Who.

Murlo has had a busy month; April has seen this guy take over the BBC, with his Xtra talent shows as part of DJ Cameo’s show, and a Light’s On guest mix for Monki’s BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra show.

Illanja, the understated but incredibly versatile veteran dj of the Irish scene and is someone whose tastes are impecable. We missed having him at the Shacklewell last month and are glad to have him back with us this month.

After the success of Kazabon & Hootie Who’s incredibly popular Afropop mix for Mixpak FM the DJs behind the World Carnival sound are back for another set of Dancehall, Hip Hop, Afrobeats and Soca. So whether you want to dance Azonto, Atigi, Moggela, Whine and/or Kotch, don’t miss out on their set.

We will not be having a monthly event in June due to a Field Day takeover at the venue so join us on Saturday and party hard enough for two months! Fete hard or go home!!! More info here.

Some of you will know Illanja from his sets at Hipsters Don’t Dance at the Shacklewell and other HDD events. His selections are always on point and are sure to get your weekend kicked off correctly whether you are catching up with friends over pizza and drinks or getting ready for a night of raving and misbehaving!

HDD Highlights: HDD 4th Birthday Bash

Last Saturday we celebrated four years of HDD with Serocee and Poirier as our guests and the vibe was so right as you can see from Egle Trezzi’s photos above . Unfortunately we didn’t manage to capture the magic of the b2b2b2b2b between Serocee, Poirier, Kazabon, Hootie Who and Murlo at the end of the night but if you were there you know it was pretty special. Thanks again to everyone who partied with us.
