Behind Every Good Mix is a Good Woman DJaying! is the title of this 5 minute documentary on HDD founder and HDD DJ, Kazabon, which premiered on Yaheard last night. Award winning director Bhavna Malkani (Guilty or Innocent of Using The N-Word) created this amazing piece which follows Kazabon’s DJ journey so far, from being influenced by her dad, being a part of Style & Swagger, to creating Hipsters Dont Dance with Hootie Who. This is 5 minutes definitely worth checking out!
Style & Swagger (aka HDD residents Kazabon, The Large and Why Delila) have a busy weekend ahead: On Saturday night they will be at Mudd Up at Open The Gate in Stoke Newington, on Sunday they will be hosting a carnival edition of their NTS radio show from at 1am, and on Monday they will be bringing their carnival soundtrack to the Extra Stout Sound System from 5pm – 6pm. This soundsystem boasts a huge lineup over Sunday and Monday and a little birdy even tweeted that Stylo G may be stopping by on Sunday. To help you find your way check out Timeout’s soundsystem map.
