October 11, 2011

Words by Jesse Serwer, via The Guardian

British newspaper The Guardian last Friday tapped our own esteemed Cockney & Yardie columnist and the five-star general of top-ranking London soundsystem The Heatwave, Gabriel Myddleton, along with Heatwave MC Benjamin D, for a highly engaging guide to the art of the house party. Among the “dos” and “don’ts” recommended by Gabe and Ben:

โ€”No posing or being seen. Getting sweaty is not cool, but it’s essential to a dancehall party. When you’re at the rave, forget about what you look like

โ€”Never walk up to anybody at the rave and say, ‘So, what do you do?’

โ€”Play Sean Paul

โ€”Bring a drunk friend who is gonna get excited about the music
