HDD at Vesuvio Halloween Carnival


We can’t think of a better way to kick off Halloween weekend than djing alongside Jus Now and Vesuvio residents Becca, Zane, Tom Caslin and Heavenly Records at The Social. It’s free entry and the carnival vibes will be in full effect until 3am. Fancy dress is encouraged but if you’re not feeling it come as you are and wave something! More info here

For a taste of what to expect, here’s what happened last time we linked with Jus Now on our Radar show.

Zane Cunningham Photography Exhibition Launch

We first met Zane at Southern Hospitality’s Players Ball, and have been fans of him and his flawless photography ever since (Zane took some amazing snaps for us at Dancehall Jamboree and also shot the new HDD tees). In celebration of Zane’s work The Social will be launching an exhibition of his photographs from Players Ball and Hip Hop Karaoke tonight on the ground floor, with music from Southern Hospitality residents Rob Pursey and Davey Boy Smith. The event starts at 6.30pm and is not to be missed! Club photography never looked so good, Zane’s artistic eye combined with the ability to capture that natural shot without his subject suspecting there is a camera nearby, has achieved amazing results.

Style & Swagger at Madd Raff Wednesday 12th October

This Wednesday The Heatwave are throwing their third Madd Raff party at The Social, and they have invited Style & Swagger along as their special guests. If you don’t know by now Style & Swagger is made up of HDD’s Kazabon, Physically Fit’s Why Delila and Shimmy Shimmy’s The Large (and they are all HDD residents too), you can listen to their latest NTS show here.

It’s a 90s party on Wednesday so Style & Swagger will be doing a 90s set on the night. Get your batty riders, baggy jeans, dungarees and string vests at the ready, it’s a 90s bashment party!

Hootie Who @ HHK

So the lovely guys at HHK introduced me to Droop- E’s I’m Loaded and it’s become one of my favourite songs. The Sade sample, the bridges, the time and place that the lyrics evoke, E-40’s extra double time patter. So i had to do it at Hip Hop Kareoke. If you have never been i really do suggest that you go. It’s weekly, every Thursday at the Social on Little Portland Street. You will have a hard time trying to find a nicer crowd and atmosphere for anything else in the capital. The place is filled with music lovers who will often help performers sing their way through even the most difficult of tracks.
