Tifa x Ratings

Tifa’s cut on Let’s Rock This (which sounds more like a call to vote rather than a riddim) is great and this lyric video will help you focus on the erm lyrics.

Dre Skull x Blacklight Riddim

Whenever we hear that Dre Skull is releasing a dancehall riddim we know we are in for a treat, Smoke Machine, Kling Klang, Loudspeaker are all staples in our sets and Blacklight Riddim was another favourite from the minute we heard it. Dre Skull also has a skill of picking the perfect artists for his riddims, with four cuts from Konshens, QQ, Spice and Tifa all giving it their best, there’s no need for any more.

Check out Dre Skull chatting to the Fader about the riddim here and go buy it here.

Tifa x Mi Sum’n Good (Live)


Until we get a proper video we are going to post Tifa performing this cut on the excellent Cute Bubble riddim live on JA TV. This riddim has scope to run and run and run.

HDD’s Top 20 Tunes of 2013

HDD-TOP20_2013_2

As 2013 comes to a close, it’s time for our Top 20 tunes of the year. This year more than others we feel that there is a growing scene with various radio shows, labels and DJ’s playing more and more of the music we love. There has been a lot more attention payed towards Africa, Soca finally getting more shine and Dancehall moving more and more into the mainstream. There may have not been a big crossover song but instead there has been many a song which has caught the imagination of the public. We have certainly seen a shift in our raves where people are demanding we play stuff that a few years ago they would have looked a bit lost at. Let’s hope that this momentum continues with more and more exposure to the World Carnival sound. This list has been based on the tunes that we have been playing out at our numerous raves, listening to at HDD Headquarters and generally being the best ones out this year.
