Doors: 8pm-2am

We are SUPER excited to be back in one of our favourite spaces The Jam Jar Bristol, and lucky to be one of a few select events that are happening there as it slowly re-opens its doors! We have a blazing lineup of some of our finest familia including Hippo Sound System on the live global-jungle fusion, X-Ray Ted of the tropical disco, Indian Man World Selector and his bangin' Bhangra garage, along with PantherPanther and Fruit Palace providing global and tropical party selections!

In the usual TTP fashion we shall transform the Jam Jar into a tropical haven, and lay on the leis, limbo and bottomless GOOD VIBES! And this time we are able to sell tickets making it much easier for you all to secure your place in the TTP!

~ Hippo Sound System ~

The Hippo SS is a hybrid electronic/live band lead by Bristol's notorious ‘Samba Junglist’ DJ Hiphoppapotamus, who’s known for his infectiously fun fusions of latin, jazz, reggae and world music flavours with Drum & Bass, Jungle aned Global Bass. Using his own custom productions as well as triggering recorded sounds of the natural world, the hippo designs a continuous, hi-octane global soundscape which is then accompanied by maestros of the saxophone (Dave Sanders of Snazzback), percussion (Leon Mook) and vocals (Feline of The Midnight Zu).


~ X-Ray Ted ~

Excited to have our old friend X-Ray Ted for his first set at TTP! This man has been churning out the fresh and funky vibes for years and has recently has been tearing up the BBC radio airwaves along with regularly destroying Craig Charles Funk & Soul Club, not to mention the festival circuit! He's putting an extra tropical twist on his usual funky disco vibes just for us and boy we cant wait to hear it!


~ Indian Man World Selector ~

Our ghundi grandfather Indian Man is still on the run from his arranged marriage! Luckily we can keep him safe and sound in the Malthouse away from all of the Babylon.... whilst also spinning us his extra tasty Bhangra garage bangers and punjabi infusions of all kinds! If you've not seen him before... you're in for a REAL treat!


~ PantherPanther ~

A keen enthusiast for South American music and culture you may have caught this man at his lovely night called Midnight Ritual. They have a similar ethos to TTP but with more deep and psychadelic global grooves so we are very excited to see what he pulls out of his collection for this one! Expect the likes of tropical bass, electro cumbia, and ethnic rhythms!


~ Fruit Palace DJs ~

Good friends of the TTP these guys have been running events for some time with regular events at Hootananny Brixton and they also collaborated with us the first time we took over the Jam Jar! Only seems right to have them along as they pack super fresh selection from dancefloor reggae, Latino rhythms, soulful house & everything in between!

Big luv and see you in the dance! TTP ♥
