Felix Dickinson Felix Dickinson has been D.J.ing for over 16 years and producing music for over 12, yet because of his many monikers people often believe ‘they’re not totally familiar’ with his sound. Yet upon closer inspection, most discerning DJ’s, realize they have at least one of his tracks in their box. His tracks have been licensed on mixes by The Unabombers, Chicken Lips, The Glimmers and Rub’n’Tug, and had support from the likes of D.J. Harvey, Maurice Fulton, the Idjut Boys and Daniele Baldelli .At the tender age of 20 Felix organized his first major party collaborating with the D.I.Y. sound system from Nottingham. This love for a good party with good music led to the monthly Slack nights in Brighton which he put on with a group of close friends in the early 90s. Despite being held on a Monday night and only going till 2amthese parties regularly attracted large crowds from as far afield as London and Nottingham and would usually involve an after-party down on the beach or some local warehouse.It was at this time that Felix beganhis next and most long-lasting D.J. residency at the Joint nightclub with Jaime Read (L.H.A.S) Kevin Sparrow (Ugly) and Bobby Coulman (Soft Rocks) where he played every month from ’95 to 2000.Since Felix moved from the South Coast to London in 2000, he has run the labels Cynic and Urban Myth, and has produced a steady stream of records for other labels, collaborating with many top producers and musicians such as D.J. Harvey, Pete Z, Ray Mang, and Toby Tobias to name a few. While his D.Jing, has taken him all round the world including his residency for Life-force in Japan and regular trips to Nevada desert for the Burning Man Festival. Leo Elstob (Rat Salad) Leo Elstob is simply one of the most underated producers/ djs on the planet from being co- promoter of Soulsonic one of London's best house clubs of the nineties through to his sublime production work for ' A Mountain of One' and his acclaimed 'Rat Salad' edits are just a few examples of his work and production ethos. Leo will be digging very deep into his fantastic vinyl collection for Tropicana so expect the unexpected and be ready for a non stop party when Leo hits the 'Groom'
