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
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.

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.
Pineapple Republic is our Bi Monthly late night Tropical Pachanga, in your favourite below sea level den, Tatler. The last one was heaving. Pineapples were caressed, people got low and selectors ran the dance with deep Latin and Caribbean heat.
Expect more of the same with your local heros Shantan Wantan Ichiban, Alongside The Colombian connection Sr. Bolivar and Tropicante, plus our special guest Huwston.
And to get it all started the night will feature dance performances from the 101 DOLL SQUADRON! SQUAADDDDD!
It’s only 5 bones all night long. BYO Pineapples and tropical attire, and palm tree installations
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.
