The second Pop That was an even bigger party than the first – with Levins, Shantan and special guest Sampology all playing a mix of rap and exciting club sounds.
The crowd warmed up to Shantan’s wild cub remixes of new rap and and r&b, lost their minds to Sampology’s set which featured everything from juke, dancehall and trap, then danced as the sun rose and Levins finished the night with a mix of all things mellow.
Pop That will return later in the year with more DJs pushing an eclectic mix of club sounds. Stay tuned!
People drank, danced and were merry. We kicked off with Huwston warming up the room with an all vinyl, high energy set of afro-latin funk vibes. By 11pm he had the dancefloor in full swing, ready for Mr Who and Ichiban to take over with a Moombah-Latin-Dancehall onslaught, then Sr. Bolivar and Tropicante took the night home with the crowd hanging on to every tune till the early hours of the morning. Through out the night 101 Doll Squadron brought the carnival vibes with a couple of explosive dance performances and costume changes.
Wooooaah! Did not expect it to be that rammed. By midnight we had to stop letting people in as the party reached capacity. It was another night of Caribbean music and intense booty shaking not restricted to our Dutty Dance Off. Congratulations to Audrey for taking out the competition and winning herself a top notch cask of wine valued at $15. Totally worth it. Our selectors took us on a journey through the wide range of sounds starting with roots reggae, into new and classic dancehall with a bit of Ska, Moombahton, Latin Heat, Bashment and Soca thrown in for good measure – then ended it at 4am with some Old School Jungle.
Missed out? Would like to relive the night? Listen to Shantan’s Mix while you peruse the photos…
Excuse the dodgy mixing, excuse the blaring mic levels, this is what happens when we trade places. The Empress Ichiban gets into the mix live on FBi, playing a mix of new old tropical favourites to give you a rough taste of what you can expect from Dutty Dancing this Saturday at Goodgod Small Club.

A night of Latin, Caribbean, and Tropical Bass vibes with not even one ‘Gasolina’ request. Mind blowing.
As Tatlers filled up and the temperature rose, it truly felt like a basement party somewhere in the tropics. With DJs Mike Who, Shantan Wantan Ichiban, Sr. Bolivar & Kato playing a fusion of progressive Latin-Caribbean rhythms and Global Club jams you almost never hear in Australia, it was a little surprising how quickly it turned into a real party with vigorous hip shaking in every corner of the small Kings Cross nightspot.
Look out for the next party in April. The Pineapple Republic is awaiting your return, in the meantime you will have to be satisfied with dancing in your bedroom to the following mix by Mike Who…
