Wow. What a oh so sound year. Every step we’ve taken has been one filled with a soundtrack so good the dance just had to be had. Be it on 1BTN or in Brighton’s many clubs, venues, Wildblood’s 50th celebrations, or of course the glory that was Brighton Pride 2019, this has been a year of perfect BPMs. BPMs that always sounded better with you dear dancers. So here’s to doing it all again next year, growing old disgracefully (and possibly qualifying for that disco bus pass). Wishing you all a magical and very sound Christmas and New Year.
