DJ Hiphoppapotamus is known for his infectiously fun fusions of latin, jazz, reggae and world music favours with house, breaks and D&B/Jungle. For this live session he uses his own custom productions as well as triggering recorded sounds of the natural
world to design a continuous, hi-octane global soundscape which is then accompanied by maestros of the saxophone, percussion and vocals. During 2018 they played at many festivals across the UK including packed out major stages at Boomtown Fair (Hotel Paradiso) and Shambala Festival (Chai Wallahs)
