BIG NEWS for Tropique Magnifique for 2018: We are moving venue from Ingensteds to Revolver!  
DJ BHLB har en sjelden samling av musikk fra tropiske strøk som i flere år har løftet dansemusikk i hovedstaden til nye høyder. Nå inntar han Revolver med Tropique Magnifique for første gang! 

(E) Revolver is a lot more intimate and more suitable for a warm Tropical party. If u have not been at Revolver before, it is located in Møllergata and features a great bar upstairs and a friendly club/concert venue in the basement. Tropique Magnifique will be in the basement by the backyard. I am super excited and cannot wait to play my new finds for you lovely people. Event will be up very soon. Below i have linked my Mixcloud with all the previous Tropique Magnifique recordings so you can check it out. Much love & see you there!
@ Revolver / Møllergata 32 / from 10 pm/ fra kl. 22’00 / cc 50


A night dedicated to the most unlikely grooves from Africa & South America, new and old, rare & deep, all blended with expertise for a busy dance floor.

The music is carefully selected each time,
and will present new findings within 60s to 90s Tropical rarities as well as the freshest releases with a Tropical flavor.
Ranging from the cutest Bossanova to the meanest percussive Bass Beats of today.
