With just one week to go until Players Ball relaunches for 2013 at Shoreditch’s finest East Village Club, the good people at Dummy asked us to put together this exclusive mix to give those uninitiated with London’s favourite hip-hop night the Players Ball Experience.
If you’re in London next Friday 15th February make sure you come down and get buck. Send names to firstname.lastname@example.org for the £5 advance list or RSVP on Facebook.
Get a taste of the London label’s riotous hip-hop party night, made exclusively for Dummy.
Every month or so, Southern Hospitality run a night in London with selection that focuses squarely on the best in US hip-hop. They’re not about championing a specific region or style, though Southern rap is a major feature – as you’d guess from the name, or overly reverent appreciation circles but do party rap better than anyone else in the capital right now.
Playing hits from favourites like Future or Drake alongside upcoming talents like Ty Dolla $ign and the Bay Area’s HBK Gang, they follow a simple but effective formula, with a dedicated crowd and a thorough knowledge of hip-hop current and history.
Ahead of their move to East Village in Shoreditch for their first show of the new year resident DJs Rob Pursey and Davey Boy Smith made an hour long mix specially for Dummy to show what they do best. #Turnupturnup!
