HDD_NOV_440

This month HDD falls on Halloween weekend so we have asked a big bad producer Famous Eno (Mixpak) to join us and duppy the dance. He will be helping us bring some madness to the back room of The Shacklewell Arms. As usual we will be recreating the feeling of carnival in the middle of Dalston but this month there might be some ghoulish antics as it is Halloween weekend after all!

The Bogle and ‘Duppy Wine’ are encouraged!  Fete Hard or go Home!

£5 on the door from 11pm til 3am but it’s £3 entry for all in costume or you can email us to be added to our £3 list.

Kazabon & Hootie Who at Forever

We are really looking forward to supporting one of our favourite producers Dubbel Dutch this Friday at Forever at Birthdays. Dubbel Dutch is part of the Mixpak family and is one of the producers behind the recent Popcaan album as well as a stream of remixes spanning RnB, afropop and dancehall that we have been rinsing at our parties over the past few years. If you are in Manchester this week you can catch him at Frontin alongside Jus Now, but for the London crew all roads lead to Birthdays this Friday! More info and tickets here.

HDD House Party September

HDD-HP_MONTHLY_WEB

It’s that time of the month again, time to dust off some classics for HDD House Party at The Libertine. We will be tucking into one of the Libertine’s great pizzas and if we are lucky Famous Eno might treat us to some of his famous buffalo wings. It’s more low key than our events at The Shacklewell but just as much fun, whether you want to get warmed up for a night out or just want to catch up with friends we have got you covered.  If you haven’t been before it sounds a little something like this. Join us this Saturday (September 20th) from 8pm til 1am at The Libertine.

Hipsters Dont Dance & Swing Ting Present World Carnival from Hipsters Dont Dance on Vimeo.

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.
