Another instalment of Pineapple Republic went down last Saturday night and again it heaved! A party that has been growing since day one and one of the only spots in Sydney where you get to hear the variety of tunes run to a full dance floor. We hit capacity just after 12 and were faced with the prospect of turning away mega lines of tropical worshippers. Huge vibes the whole night and bigups everyone that came throug!! We have a Day of The Dead celebration on the  on Nov 1st where we have joined forces with some of the cities finest!! Details here>> DAY OF THE DEAD

Here are some freeloads of some of the biggest tunes of the night

LISTEN TO FULL SHOW: REGGAETON, JOYRIDE & CAKES

Yo!

Warming up to this Saturday’s Pineapple Repblic, we started off the show with some of the hottest reggaeton. We then rounded it off with some reggae and even got topical (not tropical) with The Herd’s 77%.

Joyride graced us with his presence and sat through a game of Cake where he miraculously got 5 out of 5. Joyride’s set was a mashup of classic hip hop and r’n b. Then it got pretty damn sexy.

Oh – and I ate the meanest, sweetest and juiciest navel orange. Shabba, Shabba, Shabba Ranks. Shabba, Shabba, Shabba Ranks.

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…

Mixtape Mondays with Kenny Dope

Seriously when doesn’t the Dopeman deliver, 100 percent  hands down one of my top 5 fav dj/producers of all time.Kenny Dope is the definition of legit, from his seminal work as one half of MOW, as well as dropping all matter f heat on some of my most cherished 12’s and comps, to tastemaker, ridiculously dope dj,  and Head honcho of KayDee the list is too long to continue. Anyone who isn’t down with Kenny Dope needs to do get acquainted with one of the most significant figures across more styles of music than you care to know about.  This Mixtape Mondays we check  another all 45’s mix of funk, soul and original breaks from the man himself. Listen below or sign up to his Newsletter  to download and cop regular heat. LONG LIVE THE DOPEMAN!!

Mixtape Mondays With Skratch Bastid and The Gaff

I wanted to leave this mix to post towards the end of the year to have some sort of grand finale or retrospective mix of the year  post, but i got impatient and wanted to share with anyone who hasn’t checked it yet. Soul Sisters Stand Up, is a mind blowing mix put together over the course of two years by two of the most legit dj’s worldwide, The Gaff and Skratch Bastid. These two dons of the turntables pay tribute to the female soul, funk and Rnb vocalists of the 60’s nd 70’s the right way. This mixtape is done proper,  real mixing, tight blends, tidy cuts, tasteful doubles and littered with original sample sources. There isn’t really much more i can say to get you to download this mix, easily one of the most hyped tapes of the year and with due respect. Download, share with crew, kiss me later.
