Tropical Tea Party with DJ Hiphoppapotamus & Ru Robinson

Sunday The Alchemist’s Playground

Sunshine music for the masses! The happy hippo always brings the sunshine no matter what the weather.

This DJ and producer has created his own unique party vibe by infusing Afro, Latin and Caribbean and styles into his tastefully produced selections of Breaks, House, Drum & Bass/Jungle and Hiphop.

Both David Rodigan and Craig Charles are fans giving his tracks national airtime on their shows on BBC 1Xtra and BBC 6 music.

He has brought his good vibes to major stages at some of the UK’s best festivals including Boomtown, Secret Garden Party, Shambala and Greenman, aswell as programming stages, takeovers and events for his extended family Tropical Tea Party. He and his ‘TTP’ family are much loved for the extreme effort and attention to detail that goes into the decoration and design of their parties, turning otherwise ordinary tents and venues into tropical havens with an exciting array of world-infused dance music and entertainment to match!

Ru Robinson is known for exciting and eclectic DJ sets served up with an infectious smile. His broad collection of music is lovingly selected for the dance floor, spanning the diverse tropical influences of Latin America, Africa and the Caribbean, whilst dipping and delving into countless other party sounds. 

Ru has performed at many interesting club nights and events all across the UK and occasionally further afield, including Uganda’s Nyege Nyege Festival in 2017. With huge enthusiasm for live music and involvement in the UK scene, he has also had the honour of joining the stage as supporting DJ for artists such as Femi Kuti, Vieux Farka Touré, Bassekou Kouyaté and Novalima.
