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!

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.

Listen: Swappi – Dis Gyal

Listen: Dos Melo – San Juan

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…

Listen: Adele – Rankin In The Deep (Harvey K TEL Remix)
