    22/05/2019 Duración: 36min

    About Trip Trop: Two words. Trip Trop. The brother duo from Los Angeles make whatever they want. They compare their releases to a jungle. You never know what you're going to find in there. Not caring what anyone else thinks, they push a movement powered by freedom. The freedom to do whatever you want in life. Buzz started surrounding their name in 2016 when they released two remixes gaining support from heavy hitters such as JOYRYDE, Bro Safari, and ETC!ETC!. After honing their sound at Icon Collective, they are back from hiatus. Having recently been supported by The Chainsmokers, Zeds Dead, JAUZ, and more, they show no sign of slowing down. Where in the jungle will Trip Trop take us next? Soundcloud // Instagram // Facebook // Twitter

    Soundcloud; Facebook; Twitter; Midnight Snack Mixseries Bio: I spent the majority of my childhood in Australia and Singapore and grew up playing the electric organ as well as training in classical music + dance. My first exposure to house music was actually the Ministry of Sound and Hed Kandi nightclubs in Singapore thanks to all the up and coming European DJs that would always pass through. When I left Singapore I moved to New York for uni and started performing/producing music for a Latin/Caribbean/Middle-eastern dance team before eventually starting to DJ locally and finding my niche in Brooklyn's underground scene. Over the past few years I've played bigger NY nightclubs such as Webster Hall, Output, Schimanski to smaller warehouses in deep Brooklyn - supporting acts ranging from Walker and Royce to The Magician as well as Aluna George. Most recently I supported Tchami on his Ghosts tour at Analog, Steve Darko at HOY and soon will be playing BangOn's Elements Music Festivals over memorial day weekend. I a
