This saturday we head to Manchester alongside Murlo to play at Swing Ting. To say that we are excited is an understatement. Also on the bill Swing Ting residents and Brackles. We are extremely happy to be playing and we see you there on Saturday.

So this came out a month ago and boy does it still bump. HDD fam The Large‘s mixes really stand the test of time. 6 months later they still get you in that spirit, 1 of her greatest talents is picking songs that stand the test of time. It’s easy to make a hot new dancehall mix and fill it with what runs the clubs at this moment but not stuff that will stay fresh down the line. That’s not to say that this mix rests on it’s dancehall laurels, it mimics The Large’s sets in incorporating sounds further afield. Afropop from Olamide and Gaffici, upfront club music from Dubbel Dutch, Spooky and some guy called Murlo. In fact many people missed out on the fact that he did the cover for her as well. Trust me this mix is pretty much what The Large does in the club, i fully expect you to fall in love with this and then make sure that you catch her next time she plays in New York.
Tired of hibernating after the excess of the end of the year? Why not come and dance away those winter blues with us? London’s best night for all things Dancehall, Soca, Afrobeats and more is back at the Shackelwell Arms this Saturday February 1st. You can find us in the back room of the Shacklewell recreating the feeling of Carnival in the middle of Dalston, so expect rum, rags, and flags!
Music on the night from residents Murlo, Illanja, and Kazabon and Hootie Who will make you Bruk it Down, Azonto, Atigi, Moggela, Bogle and Dutty Whine. Fete Hard or Go Home! Entry is £3 before 12am and £5 afterwards more info on our Facebook Event Page. We’re ready like this month’s poster star Bunji…..are you?!
As you can tell we are massive fans of Murlo round here. Ever since his Palm Out Sounds mix back in December 2010 we become fans of him. We invited him up to play in London ages ago (he still is mad at us for that one), he then became a resident at the night, it wouldn’t be the same without him. He has gone on from strength to strength, release to release, remix to remix, set to set, impressing most of the world with his unique style. We will always remember this one time where a bunch of UK producers got together in a studio to work on a track together (god knows what happened to those tracks). The highlight wasn’t music being made but people playing each other the new music they were working on, whenever Murlo played his and everyone just listened. They were enjoying it but no one could figure out what they were hearing. He truly is someone incredibly special and we are incredibly proud of him and this Fact Magazine Mix.
In keeping with the January Sales we are kicking off the new year with a special one-off free event at The Shacklewell Arms. Entry for HDD is usually £3 before 12am and £5 after, but after the festive season we know your bellies are full and your pockets are empty; so work off that turkey for free with residents Murlo and Kazabon & Hootie Who playing the best in dancehall, soca, afrobeats and tropical. You can find out all the details here.
Fete Hard or Go Home!!!
