In 2006 and 2011, cult releases Tropical 1 and 2 came out respectively on JME's Boy Better Know label. At that time, as Grime and Dubstep dominated UK Underground culture, UK Garage was no longer represented in the clubs. In response, tracks from the likes of Todd Edwards, Wookie, Preditah and Royal T mixed UK Garage with Grime production, to served as a nod to Grime's submerged roots. Now, as Grime's resurgence gathers momentum, Tropical has moved forward from an audio format into a 3D club experience, injecting some bounce back into Grime's clubland context and refreshing the dancefloor with the best of old and new. This event will celebrate the legacy of, and the groundwork lain by, one of Grime’s seminal figures. And what would such a celebration be without some other familiar faces?
