To kick off the first Style & Swagger show of the year on NTS, Kazabon and The Large celebrate the arrival of Soca Season by playing over an hour of high energy tunes to make you wine and wuk up. Listen out for some new dancehall riddims and new tunes from the Mixpak and Suncycle camps too.
It has officially been one year since Kazabon, The Large and Why Delila joined forces to bring you Style and Swagger and what an amazing year it has been! Style and Swagger began on Reel Rebels radio, moved to NTS, djed on the same bill as David Rodigan, played to a sea of people at Notting Hill Carnival on the Extra Stout Soundsystem, were interviewed for a feature on Dancehall in Mixmag, recorded an exclusive mix for Mixmag.net and were interviewed by Time Out London all in 2011!
Check out the latest show from the selectors, which features their favourite riddims and dancehall tunes of the year in a two hour Style and Swagger special.

Two weeks time (Decmeber 3rd) we celebrate 2 years of Hipsters Dont Dance with our monthly at the CAMP. It’s been amazing and we have thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it. The sessions at the camp have become legendary with soca mosh pits, amazing live performances and incredibly dj sets becoming the norm. What better way to celebrate than with just having our family involved, so it’s all residents. You can check out the event here.
You should also check out Large Up (the fantastic Caribbean influenced sector of the Okayplayer conglomerate) as we and Jillionaire Dancehall Jamboree mixes made their excellent mixtape monday column. Props to DJ Theory.
Our December Session is also the Offical After Party of G.R.E.Ed.S + The Remedies “Ready!” EP Launch
