As co-owner of Tropical Disco Records alongside Moodena, Sartorial is a man with music coursing through his veins. Buying his first set of Technics in 1997 he has never looked back. From his first residency at Tempo at Dogstar In Brixton, then an underground venue of high regard, right through to running Tropical Disco Records, music has been the guiding light in his life.

Growing up as part of London’s burgeoning DnB scene he played at landmark events all over the city studying some of the doyens of the scene in Andy C, LTJ Bukem and Roni Size as he learned both his DJ and production craft.

Across the years his love of music imbued with soul and funk saw him gravitate towards house and disco scene citing Louie Vega and Joey Negro as latter day influences. For Sartorial it was only a matter of time before he put all of this accrued knowledge and experience to work. It led to the launch of Tropical Disco Records in 2017. Starting out as a radio show with Sartorial presenting it would quickly develop into a club night and then the record label that we all know and love today.

Tropical Disco Records was an immediate success. Sartorial's elegant production style captured the imagination of both Jamie Jones and The Black Madonna who would support his tracks on Radio 1 on the legendary Essential mix and covering Giles Peterson’s show respectively.

Seizing his opportunities Sartorial has never looked back. He has become one of the most crucial producers on the disco scene with his success mirrored by that of the label. Consistent digital number 1’s and chart topping sell-out vinyl releases have followed him across the last whirlwind two years. By the end of 2019 his sales power was such that he landed firmly in Traxsource’s coveted top selling Nu Disco artists of the year list at an impressive number 6.

Sartorial’s first love as a DJ too has seen him build on Tropical Disco’s club events which now holds down a residency at London’s Number 90 and has also sold out Night Tales. There are also regular appearances at the fabled Ministry of Sound. Sartorial now appears beside those key figures in the scene recently sharing the bill with Roy Davis Jr, Glenn Underground, Marshall Jefferson, Joey Negro and the Shapeshifters as a co-headliner. The festival shows too have flooded in from across Europe with recent appearances at 51st State Festival, Geneva Dance Festival and Noisily.

As a DJ he is at home behind the decks easily able to craft his set to the venue and crowd whilst as a producer he has years of experience but with a guiding principle to never stop learning and having fun in the studio. It’s safe to say that for Sartorial and Tropical Disco Records their place of dominance in the disco scene is assured for years to come.

And that trusty set of Technics? They are still part of his setup today.
