HDD’s Top 20 Tunes of 2012

HDD TOP20_2012

As 2012 comes into its last few days we decided to  repeat last year’s near- impossible task of picking our top 20 tunes of the year. Based on the tunes we have been playing out and the tunes we have been listening to at HDD Headquarters, in no particular order, here are our top hip hop, dancehall and tropical tunes of 2012.

Atumpan – The Thing
Kerwin Du Bois – Bacchanalist
Miguel  – Adorn
Jeremih – 773 Love
Vybz Kartel – Party Mi Say
Machel Montano – Go Down
Kanye West feat Big Sean, Pusha T, 2 Chainz – Mercy
Konshens  – Stop Sign
Dom Kennedy – My Type Of Party
Kendrick Lamar feat Dr Dre – The Recipe
Cham  – Wine
Frank Ocean –  Pyramids
Murlo – Next To You
D’Banj – Oliver Twist
Future  – Turn On The Lights
Trojan  – Check Your Weight 
The Dream  – Dope Bitch
Popcaan – Party Shot
Jessie Ware – 110%
Dre Skull – Kling Klang Riddim

Picking just 20 tunes that summed up the year in music for us was extremely difficult so here are the tunes that came close but did not quite make the top 20.

Stylo G x Bad Santa


Following Press Up, Stylo G has teamed up with Adde for Bad Santa. As the title suggests this is not one of your average classic Christmas songs but in true dancehall style Stylo chats about how Santa go hard from Decmember and how gyal a wine pon Santa. Ho-ho-ho! Stream or download below!

Stylo G x Press Up

We have been thirsty for a heavy hitting dancehall track for a while now and Press Up is certainly quenching that thirst! The track sees HDD fam So Shifty on the buttons and Stylo G paying tribute to his father Poison Chang. This is the best thing we have heard from Stylo G since Call Me a Yardie and it’s sure to bring back the wuk.

Press Up will be released on Supersonic Sound on December 5th

So Shifty Presents #Unfuckwithable

Every week the excellent So Shifty guys will bring you a performance that they deem #unf*ckwithable. You can give them suggestions on twitter just using that hashtag but ultimately they will decide. This week’s edition is from J Alvarez and his love song Junto Al Amanecer.

The So shifty guys are the busiest guys on the planet they just released a riddim alongside Adde called Sweet Sounds riddim. The riddim features Stylo G, Christopher Martin and Ce’Cile among others. J Boog whom we really like at HDD HQ is also included.

You can catch So Shifty at the HDD World Carnival party next week.

Stylo G x Call Me a Naija ( Feat. Sneakbo)

As we said when this song first premièred the day before Nigerian independence day, the biggest name in Uk hip hop and Uk dancehall team up for this remix of Call Me a Yardie. This video, like the remix is nice mix of Naija and Yardie influences with overall UK flavour.
