Our February session was one of our best yet at The Shacklewell Arms, so for those of you who missed it, and for those of you who want to re-live it here are some excellent shots by Egle Trezzi above, and a recording of Kazabon & Hootie Who’s set below. HDD head honchos and party starters Kazabon & Hootie Who ran through everything from dancehall to soca to afro pop to tropical bass, in true world carnival style.
Remember Hipsters Don’t Dance is the 1st Saturday of every month at The Shacklewell Arms.

Jasmine Solano Live at HDD July 13th by Hipsters Dont Dance on Mixcloud
Our last party at The Shacklwell Arms was a heater and definitely one of the best yet! Jasmine Solano joined us all the way from NYC and tore the place down with a very big set covering dancehall, soca and tropical bass. If you missed it you really missed out! Stream the live recording above or download it here.
This Friday July 19th we will be at Lockside Lounge for a On A Ragga Tip residents special. If you are a HDD regular you know how good these events can be. Each one of our residents Murlo, The Large, Illanja , Kazabon & Hootie Who all know how to make sure that the carnival vibes will be reaching Camden.
Over the past few months Murlo has released tunes on Mixpak, had his songs played on Radio 1 and also released a collaboration with the world renowned Brenmar. Trust us you dont want to miss out on someone whom regularly gets press love from Fact Magazine, Vice and XLR8R.
DJ and Shimmy Shimmy honcho, The Large’s latest mix is easily one of the best in dancehall this year. Incredibly respected in her field and an amazing DJ make sure you are there to experience one of her fantastic sets.
Our understated but incredibly versatile veteran dj of the Irish scene is someone whose tastes are impecable. Whether it’s a block party set, rub a dub set or classic funky set this man can do it all. His sets at Lockside are great and definitely takes advantage of the unique atmosphere of the venue.
We (Kazabon and Hootie Who) are the duo behind HDD who live and breathe the World Carnival sounds that this club night is famous for. Whether it’s afrobeats, soca, dancehall or hip hop. This duo has it covered. Their DJ edits are becoming essential to dj’s across the world and even won approval of Queen B. Not sure what music to expect? Check out our live recordings below.

This past Friday Illanja did a storming set of classic funky and tropical jams. It was great to be there in the room but you can listen to it in the comfort of your own room. Make sure you catch him alongside Tomb Crew and Illaman and others this Saturday at the Shacklewell Arms.
