Interview with Sartorial
Hi! I’m Alex, founder and co-owner of Tropical Disco Records. I got into dance music though the British Rave scene in the mid 90’s. Bought my Technics 1210Mk2 in 97 and been mixing ever since. I Dj’d Drum & Bass for the best part of twenty years. In that time I played at some huge raves in England. My Dj name, “Sartorial,” is a play on my surname Sartori.
Tropical Disco Records, started life on a weekly radio show on Housefm.net. I had a weekly 2hr show on the same radio station as Terry Hunter, Roger Sanchez and Louie Vega to name a few. So this was a great platform to promote my new releases and also to promote club events also called TDR. I started TDR really as a platform to get some tunes out and press, if lucky, a few vinyls for me and a few close friends. Speaking of friends, I must mention and thank Simon Kennedy for his part in the label in the early days. I’ve also not yet mentioned Tim Burnett (Moodena) (who’s a fucking G by the way) as well as co – owner of TDR. Its crazy to think what started three years ago in my flat in Brixton has now become. In 2020 TDR, will keep putting out weekly promo’s on TraxSource, as well as bi-monthly vinyl releases.
