Channelling the spirit of the original block party, Tayo’s Tracksuit Party is a chance to get up and get down to classic hip hop, garage, reggae, new and old disco, dancehall, 80s grooves, early house, proper electro and all that good stuff from the past, present and future. Since the first party in 2000, TTP has welcomed the likes of Grandmaster Flash, Roots Manuva, Fake Blood, Jack Beats, Basement Jaxx, Joe Goddard, Cuban Brothers, Spin Doctor, Ben Westbeech and a whole host more to do their thing.
Sunday 6th May sees West London’s most luxurious party pub host the 2012 instalment of Tayo’s legendary Tracksuit Party with special guests all at the forefront of their dance music field.
Rob Da Bank is one of those rare breed of DJs who has forged an illustrious career by constantly championing underground, leftfield live and electronic music. With a regular slot on BBC Radio 1 and the creation and curating of arguably the most unique UK music festival, Bestival, Rob Da Bank never lets his finger stray far from the pulse. His eclectic mix of funk, soul, bass, house and leftfield is sure to cause serious destruction to the Paradise decks on 6th May.
As one third of perhaps the first ever dubstep super group, Magnetic Man, Artwork is famed for his prolific selection skills and dance floor focused sonics. He’s as adept at playing techno and house as he is dark garage, grime and dub and is sure to leave your tracksuit comfortably balmy after his May Bank Holiday strictly vinyl, classic disco set.
Matt Jam Lamont will be dusting off the classics and delivering a unique “back in the day” Sunday selection. We’re also bringing you Wookie because one garage legend is never enough! Blending r&b with tougher club sounds, he came out with his own unique brand of garage that is still revered to this day. On May 6th he will also be reporting for CLASSICS duty.
Coming up the rear (in a two piece Adidas number) will be Tracksuit Party’s host and founder, Tayo3000.
With more DJs to announce, Bank Holiday Sunday will feel like an indoor carnival. Get your style on in Nylon, and get down to the best block party of the year.
