As we get ready to celebrate 4 years of Hipsters Don’t Dance this live recording of our set from our September party is sure to get you ready for the celebrations on December 7th. We are really excited about having HDD favourites Poirier and Serocee join us for our birthday bash at The Shacklewell Arms. This recording really reflects the HDD vibe and we can’t wait to celebrate with you all on December 7th. Check out the Facebook Event Page for more info on our party.

At our last HDD party Murlo did a warm up set and ran through a bunch of hip hop, dancehall and RnB. That meant Dj Mustard, Dembow and Mavado classics all in 1 hour! Don’t forget to check out HDD faves Kalado, Tifa and Teeflii in there as well. It’s a great representation of how we get things started at our monthly raves (1st Saturday of the month) at Shacklewell Arms. Next one is November 2nd with an extra special set from Kazabon & Hootie Who.
It’s July and the summer is finally here, it’s time to do like Lonyo and sing about the Summer of Love rather than Carl Thomas and Summer Rain. Back at the Shacklewell Arms this Saturday for another World Carnival party we are joined by special guest Jasmine Solano. If you don’t know about Jasmine, you will soon enough. Part of New York’s Electric Punanny alongside Melo- X ( who share our love of all things Dancehall and Soca), she is known for her fantastic DJ sets, having DJ’d across the world alongside the likes of Kendrick Lamar, A Trak, and Dre Skull. She even djed for Beyonce’s album release party in Harlem and was the official dj for Wiz Khalifa’s Deal or No Deal Tour. When she is not making Queen Bey shake a tail feather, she hosts a weekly radio show on New York’s famous Radio Lily. Oh and on top of all that she is an artist in her own right, releasing an EP last year to much acclaim.
Also on the night we will have residents Murlo, The Large, Illanja, Kazabon & Hootie Who playing Hip Hop, Dancehall, Soca, Afrobeats and everything in between. We will be partying from 9pm til 3am and entry is £3 before 11pm and £5 after. Save yourself some cash and add your name to the cheaplist by emailing names to firstname.lastname@example.org this guarantees you £3 entry all night (list closes at 5pm on Saturday 13th). In the meantime get this mix from Kazabon & Hootie Who through your speakers and get ready to wuk and wine!
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.
