World Carnival #5

world carnival3

It’s almost time for Notting Hill Carnival which means it’s time for another World Carnival mix. The fifth mix in our World Carnival series celebrates carnival sounds from around the world, with tunes hailing from the UK, Trinidad, Jamaica, Nigeria and Ghana. The result being a flow between genres in a way that replicates what we feel is the perfect carnival experience. With the streets of Notting Hill Carnival calling us we thought we should include some songs that will be booming out of Soundsystems and the end of this month. Stream or download below and get ready for our World Carnival party on Saturday August 24th.

Hipsters Dont Dance World Carnival

HDD World Carnival

On the 25th of August we will be throwing a party that has been 3 years in the making. During those years we have brought the sound of World Carnival to the clubs of the UK, a sound that is distinctly familiar but not recognized and under represented in the UK clubbing scene. We wanted to recreate the feeling of walking around not only Notting Hill Carnival but other Carnivals across the world. This year we get to do this during the August Bank Holiday at an amazing and intimate venue in East London with some of our favourite DJ’s and Producers around. Dre Skull whose production is almost always heard at our raves is headlining. Fresh off his work with the likes of Major Lazer, Snoop Lion in addition to his own riddims. So Shifty also join us, the German tropical dons (who are also our columnists) whose recent Rumba EP is amazing. Dubboy and ATKI2 who have been running all things tropical and bassy in Bristol for years now. Of course it wouldn’t be the same without some of the HDD Fam. Murlo has been a resident for a year and a bit and is someone production and taste mirrored ours from the get go. The Large has been there from the start and has always held us down especially on the dancehall end of things. These are all people that in one way or another have helped shape the HDD sound and we are so overjoyed to be able to throw a carnival party with all of them. Also we will be having surprises on the night itself so make sure you look out for them. We wouldn’t have been able to throw this party without the support of all of you who have come and skanked at previous HDD raves, so once again Thank You!

For directions and additional information check the Facebook Event Page

We would like to ask all you who are attending to bring your countries flag, imagine a sea of people waving flags on the night. Pump Yuh Flag!

Rebello x Thru The Window

We appreciate new talent here at HDD HQ so when up-and-coming London producer Rebello sent us some of his tunes we just had to post our favourite. Thru The Window is a tropical riddim inspired by London’s underground music scenes and features a sample we are pretty sure you will recognise. You can download the Thru The Window here . Hear more from Rebello on Soundcloud or on his Bandcamp –  Recognise is another HDD favourite from this young London producer.

World Carnival #2

Hipsters Dont Dance World Carnival #2 Mix

7 months after our first World Carnival mix we are back with the sequel. This mix spans not only our musical influences but represents the sound of our heritage. The music that this generation of diasporas (Trinidad and Nigeria in particular) are making. So we have music from countries as diverse as Ghana, Trinidad, UK, France, Nigeria, Portugal and Germany amongst others. For us combing genres such as Soca, Azonto, House and Tropical Bass is natural and something that we have nurtured through our club night. We wanted to replicate the sounds we know are orignating from carnivals in Port of Spain, Calabar and London. We hope that you enjoy this mix, this is what we believe is our World Carnival.

Hipsters Dont Dance March Session

Hipsters Dont Dance March Session with Warrior One
On March 3rd we are back at C.A.M.P. for our monthly residency. This time we are joined by one of the leading lights of Tropical bass music Warrior One. We were lucky to have Warrior One christen our first ever event at the C.A.M.P. back in September 2010. Since then he has gone on to release records labels such as Black Butter, King Pigeon and Mixpak and work with the likes of Serocee, Lady Chann and Durrty Goodz. His latest track Fyah featuring Ayah (which you can listen to below). We are very lucky to have him joining us and can’t wait for his storming set.

Also on the night we will have residents Murlo (Pollinate/ Mixpak), The Large (Shimmy Shimmy) and HDD DJ’s Kazabon & Hootie Who bringing you those winter carnival vibes. So expect soca, azonto, naija pop, SA house alongside the usual hip hop, tropical and dancehall.
