On Friday 14th December we celebrate Too Hip To Be Square's 3rd Birthday at The Star of Bethnal Green. In preparation for the night, I have mixed this special 3rd Birthday Mix. The mix was going to be based on choosing 3 tracks from the different genre's we feature on the night (3x funk, 3x soul, 3x hip hop, 3x disco, 3x house & 3x electronica). However, caught up in the moment there's a few extra tracks thrown in for good measure.
Be sure to join our celebrations this coming Friday from 9pm-2am with free entry all night.

Way back in December 2009 I stepped out from behind the blog to start a night of guest DJs spinning guilty pleasures and hidden treasures, past and present, in a small bar in Haggerston.
Three years on and the Too Hip To Be Square brand has been privileged to host guest headliners that include Ali B (Kiss FM), 2 Bit Thugs, Neoteric (Dubsided), Arveene (Arveene & Misk), Stew Streetlife (Streetlife DJs), DJ Matman (DMC champ), Mooqee, The Freelance Hellraiser and Jim Sharp. With monthly residencies and events hosted at 93 Feet East, The Westbury, All Star Lanes, C.A.M.P, Electricity Showrooms and Queen Of Hoxton the resident team has now expanded to 5x resident DJ's & 2x AVDJ's.
This month we’re bringing the Too Hip To Be Square party to The Star of Bethnal Green to celebrate our 3rd birthday in style, with residents Alruii, White Tyson, Fade In Fade Out and myself spinning the finest hip-hop, funk, soul, disco house and electronica all night long.
Check out the Facebook event for more details.
Here's the 5 minute minimix I made a while back with a previous to the sounds to expect on the night:
