After the success of our debut event at the Lockside Lounge, Hipsters Dont Dance On A Ragga Tip is back for another night of World Carnival fun. This time we are joined by producer and HDD favourite Famous Eno. Fresh from his storming set on London’s important Just Jam, Famous Eno will be bringing us his take on Grime, Bashment and more. Of course we will have our Residents Murlo, The Large, Illanja and Kazabon & Hootie Who on the decks bringing you the best in Hip Hop, Tropical and Dancehall. Don’t forget our motto is Fete Hard or Go Home! Get ready to wuk and wine by pumping our latest mix (below) through your speakers.
This Friday we are joining Jus Now and The Large for the No Ice Cream Sound launch party. It’s at the Moustache Bar in Dalston and kicks off from 9pm. Don’t miss out for the following reasons:
1) The zine is fantastic and you can get it at the launch before it’s sold online. Issue 4 is NY themed with interviews with Shaggy, Dre Skull and more (and a chart from us). 2) Jus Now were great when we saw them on Regents St this past Sunday. Get Involved! 3) Support a great piece of work by one of the hardest working people in the scene. The amount of hard work that goes into this zine is untold and we really need people who love the genre like we do to support.
The Large was on Just Jam a couple of weeks ago during the Part 2 Style takeover. Catch her run through some of the best new bashment above including Murlo’s Heartbroken rework. You can catch a live set of her’s here.
In preparation of our next event at the Shacklewell Arms we have uploaded 2 snippets of the set from our April event. The first is from The Large and it’s a uptempo affair taking in house, garage and more. The second one if from Kazabon & Hootie Who and it’s a dancehall, hip hop, reggaeton vibe. These 2 sets really reflect our unique World Carnival sound that we are known for. You can listen to the mixes after the jump. Make sure you don’t miss out and check the gigs section for the next event.
HDD finally has a new home out east; The Shacklewell Arms. It made sense really, the venue is perfect for our World Carnival Sound with it’s Caribbean beach inspired decor, space to dance and great outdoor garden to cool off after some vigorous dancing.
We start a monthly residency at the venue in Dalston in June but before that we bring you a one off Residents special. Residents The Large, Illanja, Kazabon and Hootie Who will offer you a taste of what’s to come. Expect Hip Hop, Dancehall and Tropical music on the night, Basically the experience of carnival in one night. Make sure you don’t miss out on it, grab someone close to you and whine.
