This month HDD falls on Halloween weekend so we have asked a big bad producer Famous Eno (Mixpak) to join us and duppy the dance. He will be helping us bring some madness to the back room of The Shacklewell Arms. As usual we will be recreating the feeling of carnival in the middle of Dalston but this month there might be some ghoulish antics as it is Halloween weekend after all!
The Bogle and ‘Duppy Wine’ are encouraged! Fete Hard or go Home!
£5 on the door from 11pm til 3am but it’s £3 entry for all in costume or you can email us to be added to our £3 list.

Machel Montano’s first offering this scoca season comes with a really nice lyric video. Nice sing-a-long bits in this one and we can see it being a grower.
We are really feeling the latest production from Frontin’s J Rus. It’s a little bit soca, a little bit funky and very vibey. Stream above and thank us later!
The soca 2015 tunes are starting to roll out and we are definitely not mad at that. We are loving Kes The Band’s latest groovy offering ‘Just Wanna Jam’. It’s always soca season at HDD HQ and we are looking forward to what soca has to offer for 2015.
We will be going in like King of the Dancehall Beenie Man at our October session this Saturday at The Shacklewell Arms. You can find the full crew; us ( Hipsters Don’t Dance aka Kazabon & Hootie Who), Murlo and Illanja in the back room of TheShacklewell Arms recreating the feeling of carnival in the middle of Dalston. The Bogle, Dutty Whine and Azonto are not only encouraged but guaranteed. So get ready to Row di boat like Beenie Man……Fête Hard or Go Home!
£5 on the door from 11pm to 3am or email us to be added to the £3 cheaplist (guarantees £3 all night). More info here.
PS. Not sure what music to expect? Give this a listen!

Continuing the summer of Blaze (Ricky that is) Gyptian’s cut on the Uptown Julie gets its own video. Fingers crossed for a Zoelah one soon.
