What can we say about this track? It’s amazing, it’s Famous Eno at his best. We were there from day 1 with this song from hearing it being blared on repeat in his house when he first made they instrumentals to helping figure out the vocal performances order. That’s not to say we have anything to do with it’s success, thats all Eno and the vocalists and Swing Ting. It’s more a case of highlighting what goes into making a great release. All these little factors that go into making what is a great song and visual.

To celebrate five years of throwing parties in London, we are taking over the Queen of Hoxton for a special birthday bash! We are really excited to have past HDD guests Serocee, Swing Ting, Famous Eno and Terry Juarez plus resident Illanja joining us for one hell of a celebration.
In true World Carnival style expect all kinds of dutty dancing, wukking and wining to help us celebrate and to kick start this bank holiday weekend.
More info and advance tickets here.
Last Saturday we celebrated four years of HDD with Serocee and Poirier as our guests and the vibe was so right as you can see from Egle Trezzi’s photos above . Unfortunately we didn’t manage to capture the magic of the b2b2b2b2b between Serocee, Poirier, Kazabon, Hootie Who and Murlo at the end of the night but if you were there you know it was pretty special. Thanks again to everyone who partied with us.
Today sees Famous Eno’s second solo release on Mixpak and this one is not to be slept on. Gypsy Riddim is a heavy hitting dancehall riddim with Jamaican up-and-comer Vyral joining UK favourites Serocee, Trigganom and Rubi Dan on the vocal cuts. It’s hard to choose a favourite on here as they are all strong but after the friendly b2b we had with Serocee at our birthday party last Saturday Topatop hits home for us – we dread to think what would happen in a serious clash! Stream the tracks below and support another great release from Famous Eno and Mixpak here or here.
As we get ready to celebrate four years of Hipsters Don’t Dance on December 7th with Serocee and Poirier, we have selected four of our favourite tunes from Serocee (You can check out Poirier’s over here). If you are not familiar with Serocee’s incredible work these selections will give you a taste of what’s in store at our birthday bash on December 7th.
First of all lets kick off with one of our most cherished moments. Serocee performing his single Oh Na Na at HDD back in May 2011. Bonus points for picking the Joe Grime Rice and Peas remix.
Second in the top 4 is Basement Jaxx Wheel N Stop. Basement Jaxx have a great knack of picking some great vocalists (Roxanne Shante collab is a banger) but this one with Serocee is bubbly beyond belief. Jump and Shout might get a lot of love since it was on the first LP but this is better (for 1 it isn’t that hard to sing along to) but those breakdowns are lovely.
Third in the list is Serocee and Famous Eno‘s remix of The Thing. As well as being an amazing MC, he is a Thinker, a DJ, an A and R man and someone that is willing to connect the dots before anyone else. Case in point his interest in afro-pop predates everyone else in the mainstream (not that he is necessarily). In many ways this remix is a fruit of his passion for the genre. It’s the best remix out of the lot, something which you could only do if you actually listened and understood the tune rather than take something else you had lying around and put a tiny bit of a vocal sample in it. I used the radio rip because it’s a great example of his humour and wit.
The final song in the top 4 is Serocee and Famous Eno again this time with Topatop. Seriously this goes and you have to support it when it comes out next week.
