I can’t for the life of me remember the name of the riddim that they use for this but good to see Naira back again. He kind of exists by himself which is great because he can’t be tailored to do certain things yet. A lot of artists that have been picked up by the labels have had their edge sheered off.

For our December session at The Shacklewell Arms we are going to be celebrating our 4th birthday. It’s amazing to think that we made it this far. We have been incredibly lucky to have you guys support us as we try and put on one of the best parties in London. Celebrating that World Carnival sound the right way., this is definitely an event you do not want to miss. People were talking about our 3rd birthday for weeks so expect the same type of madness, you will not want to miss out.
Poirier (Mixpax/ Ninja Tune)
Coming to us all the way from Canada, Poirier is definitely someone we admire. A true pioneer whose production work is fantastic, whether it’s his Running High Lp, the fantastic Soca Road Ep on Mixpak or any other of his amazing work.
Serocee (BBC Radio 1/ Jambrum Records)
Serocee is family. We have to have him play at HDD at least once a year and this year it was only right we have him play in december. That way we could celebrate both our Birthdays at the same time. Serocee is guaranteed to bring the fun, looking back at his past sets they have always been incredibly memorable.
It wouldn’t be a HDD party without the residents Murlo, Illanja, Kazabon & Hootie Who who will bring you the best in the World Carnival Sound. Whine and Kotch, Bruk It Down, Azonto are all songs/dances that are not only encouraged but guaranteed. So come on down to the Shacklewell and get lost in this carnival fun.
The Bogle, Dutty Whine and Row Di Boat are not only encouraged but guaranteed.
Fête Hard or Go Home!
£5 before 12am / £7 after

It’s been a while since we have posted a Sneakbo tune. He’s been navigating the pop charts with songs that haven’t really interested us. This new one by him caught out attention since it’s produced by dancehall producer Rvssian. The man the brought us Straight Jeans and Fitted has teamed up with Sneakbo who made his name adding verses to bashment classics. I guess this is an example of cutting out the middle man. This song adds to the current paranoia trend that we are seeing in hip hop and to a certain extent popular culture.
It’s that time again; we are back at The Libertine Pub in Borough this Saturday March 16th for more warm up vibes. Come and join us for the best house party in a pub in the whole of London. Kazabon & Hootie Who will be providing you with a soundtrack of party starters to get you in the mood for clubbing. Hits from Hip Hop, Dancehall and R’n’B will get your Saturday night kicked off correctly whether you are catching up with friends over pizza and drinks or getting ready for a night of raving and misbehaving! Check the facebook event page for more details.
You can also listen to a taster of what HDD House Party is like with this 2 hour recording of our set from last month. Put it on at work and have a sly little dance to this.
