“Every brunch will open with a show-stopping performance from Diana Ross. That’s right, Diana Ross - but the northern, drag version. As if that wasn’t enough, a Prince lip-syncher and full band will be recreating his classics. There will be party games, Blind Date and dancing competitions as well as a lot of boogying under the disco ball - so dust off your flares and spandex and get on the dance floor.”
“They said disco is dead. They were wrong. Disco is back, this time with brunch on its side. Hip Hop LDN, the brunch innovators who run Hip Hop Brunch, Garage Brunch and 90’s Brunch, now add the mighty disco genre to their ranks - beats, eats, and questionable dance moves combine, as your Saturday brunches come alive under the sparkle of the disco ball.”
“Kicking off, boozy ‘brunchers’ will be greeted by two of the finer things in life: bottomless cocktails and a Diana Ross tribute, sure to cause a chain reaction of excitement. What better way to end an event than the promise of Prince classics? A tribute to the Partyman singer will see a lip-sync of some of his greatest hits, bidding farewell to the days when the platform shoes, sequin tops and leisure suits gathered dust in the back of the wardrobe.”
Sartorial and Moodena are Tropical Disco – two likeminded individuals, who share a deep love of music, vinyl-culture and no-boundary parties.

Tropical Disco started in November 2017 releasing their first vinyl ep Tropical Disco edits VOL 1 which kicked the label off with a bang. Building on that formula the label has gone from strength to strength, with each release selling more than the last with re-presses ordered within two weeks of each release being on sale.

In March 2018 TD records went digital with a string of tracks going into the top ten of the Nu Disco chart immediately.
