Hipsters Don’t Dance x Mixpak FM

Calabar Festival from inie bango on Vimeo.

We were incredibly proud to be asked by our favourite record label Mixpak to participate in their Mixpak FM mix series. We focused on doing a afrobeats/pop mix of stuff we have been enjoying for ages. It was really nice to actually focus on this and try and capture a tiny bit of what the carnival is like. Above is a video from 4 years ago, i think it was my 2nd of my 3 visits. Get the tracklist and download link here, or stream below.


HDD Highlights: HDD February 1st

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.

Stritcly Riddims No 13 Mixed by Samrai

strictly riddims4
Inspired by dancehall riddims and the recent work of two of our favourite producers Murlo (Quartz EP) and Dubbel Dutch (Self Help Riddim), we have decided to launch the HDD Strictly Riddims mix series focusing on our favourite instrumentals. With this series we hope to increase appreciation for dancehall riddims and instrumentals as we feel that in dancehall the productions and producers don’t often get the props they deserve. The 13th mix in the series is by Samrai from Manchester crew Swing Ting. If you don’t know about Samrai, you should! Not only a great DJ (make sure you see him when you can) but a great producer as well. His mix focuses on well i’ll let him describe it:
“Going for a 12″ version excursions selection ft. 80s computer / digital dancehall into 90s with a few 00s pieces to finish off as I thought they hadn’t been covered as much by the series.”
You can check out all the 12″s here.
You can download the mix here.
