So the two month wait for Pineapple republic is finally over, which means this Saturday the 24th of August we happily take you back to the our Tropical hideaway in the Tatler bunker. Step into our below sea level oasis where plastic palm trees line the booth and pineapple platters reign supreme. Resident selectors join the dots between Latin heat from the coasts of Colombia to the belly of tropical bass from the clubs of Buenos Aires, Fania Classics to slept on 90’s Reggaeton, Up to the time Dancehall from the islands, deep Afro vibes and healthy doses of Brazilian Boogie and Funk.

10pm till forever..
Our Colombian connection Señor Bolivar dropped by the show last week for a big mix to get you hyped for Saturday. Listen and download Below.
Listen: La Yegros- Viene de Mi (Captain Planet Remix)
At 11pm, when the club was empty, we had those doubts that every party host has – “Shit, nobody is going come. Nobody likes us. Think I will eat some worms”.
Fortunately, we avoided a diet of worms. By 12 midnight, the dancefloor was already heaving and a line gathered outside the door of Tatler as folks squeezed into our tropical basement party.
With Charlie Villas, Mike Who, Shantan Wantan Ichiban, Tropicante and Sr Bolivar throwing down Caribbean Rhythms more pineapples were kissed, inflatable palm trees were danced with, and all were merry.
Here is a mix I did to keep you going till the next party in mid-August!
No small or even medium sized tings tonight. Just big tunes and big issues.
We talk racism and the Aussie Hip Hop scene, Indigenous Hip Hop and stray cats named Slim Thug with Urthboy.
Also to get you in the mood for Dutty Dancing this Saturday at Goodgod, Shantan Wantan Ichiban plays a set of gargantuan Caribbean tunes with a African and Latin twist.
