Our February session was one of our best yet at The Shacklewell Arms, so for those of you who missed it, and for those of you who want to re-live it here are some excellent shots by Egle Trezzi above, and a recording of Kazabon & Hootie Who’s set below. HDD head honchos and party starters Kazabon & Hootie Who ran through everything from dancehall to soca to afro pop to tropical bass, in true world carnival style.
Remember Hipsters Don’t Dance is the 1st Saturday of every month at The Shacklewell Arms.

We are back at The Libertine on Saturday January 18th for the first HDD House Party of 2014. We will be providing you with a soundtrack of party starters to get you in the mood for clubbing. It’s a little more laid back than our monthly parties at The Shacklewell Arms but it’s just as much fun, whether you are catching up with friends over pizza and drinks or getting ready for a night of raving and misbehaving we’ve got you covered! Not sure what music to expect? Check out our live recording here.
Famous Eno will be cooking up some of his famous buffalo wings on the night and trust us they are the best wings in London. If that’s not enough to convince you to get down early, the Libertine also has a delicious pizza menu. More info on our Facebook Event Page.

Expect party sets and good vibes from all of us. More info and directions on the Facebook Event page.
