~ The Busy Twist ~

Hailing from London, The Busy Twist are a strong favourite of the TTP's with their heavy and grooving fusion of afro/latin styles with UK Bass music. Much loved for their debut single 'Friday Night' they continue to grow and grow with tours in Columbia and exciting new works/collaborations with artists and labels such as Nidia Gongora and Chongo De Colombia, Palenque Records, Systema Solar and Ghetto Kumbé.



~ Horseman ~

Yes yes steering the vibes through Kingston we have none other than the legendary Horseman! This man's gloriously uplifting reggae tracks with both his band Prince Fatty the have already grooved the TTP dance floor countless times so it will be such a pleasure to finally have him do it in person! ♥


~ DJ Hiphoppapotamus & Special Guests ~

Tropical Tea Party's chief noisemaker and music programmer, if you're familiar with us at TTP I'm sure you already know about him and his love for fusing tropical sounds with all forms of dance music be it Boogaloo with Breaks, Afrobeat with House, Reggae with Hip Hop or Brazilian with Jungle! He's bringing a special guest or two for this one so watch out!


~ AAA Badboy ~

AKA Kaptin, AKA Boomtown Fair's head of music, this badboy is an all-round legendary nice guy and a self admitted music addict! We've never met anyone with such an ear for so many styles of music from across globe, and with a particular love for Reggae, Dancehall, Afro, Soca and Global sounds we are VERY excited to see what he pulls out of his collection for this one!

Two of the most lovable music maestros in Bristol they will be trading their favourite selections of world music, party tunes and global infusions for a whole 90 minutes!
