Tonight will see us bring our queer disco bpms back home to the building that has been the longplaying soundtrack to our clubbing days together in Brighton. As we hit the decks tonight at Horse Meat Disco at Patterns we’ll be giving a disco nod to our many years of joy (and glitter) at 10 Marine Parade. Loved up and loving it. But then when … Continue reading Escaping into the Patterns of Audio for 25 years
Farewell Audio. You have served us well. The sunshine on the terrace. The cute boys on the dance floor. The queues in the loos. The spankingly fine doormen, the glorious barstaff, the handsome managers and the handsomer DJs. The best promoters, the finest owner, the jump up and down moments and those fierce, fierce hangovers. The civil partnership and the day the snow closed down … Continue reading Farewell Audio
Without it Brighton wouldn’t be, well, Brighton. Without it my clubbing history would be less grin filled, groove sorted and decent. Without it where would we put our giant disco ball? Without it my hangover curing chemist would be bust. And without it Brighton today wouldn’t be able to hold its clubbing head up quite so high. From the underground to the proud, from the terrace … Continue reading Happy 10th Birthday Audio!
I could go on about the craft of these two DJs, the importance of the resident, the joy of house, the love of decent Audio, the cut of their jib. But I won’t. I’ll just say this live session makes me happy and leave it that. And turn it up some more. Like you do. Continue reading Perfect Distraction: Neal Schtumm & Charles Green B2B @ Warehouse
Jon Pleased Wimmin. A flamboyant legend in heavenly heels who has become a seminal part of clubbing history. Jon Pleased Wimmin, a DJ with a daring side, whose eclectic sets are as stunning as the wardrobe he displays in the DJ box. Jon Pleased Wimmin, a DJ with a decent soul, happy to Promote Diversity this Friday at Audio. So when I caught up with … Continue reading A Disco Deviant moment with Jon Pleased Wimmin
Just like a certain evil dictator I too spent most of yesterday ranting about my inabilty to secure Kraftwerk tickets. But then I counted my blessings. Well the set of tickets already pinned to my kitchen fridge. The first of which consists of Audio’s Tropical NYE Party with Eats Everything, Dusky, Neal Schtumm, Charles Green and Nick Sabin. Sold out and fabulous. Just how I … Continue reading Motel x NYE Late with Huxley and Maxxi Soundsystem
This Friday it will all go very, very Schtumm! as the filthy boys Bonar Bradberry and Tom Thorpe that are PBR Streetgang and the glorious Artificial Colours steam into town for a night of heavy bass, glorious grooves and a night of must do partying. Add the man that can Neal Schtumm! and you have a night the like of which you have to savour. … Continue reading Something Schtumm! this way comes
Today I am being distracted by Mr Savage. Just like I was when he supported James Zabiela at Audio last month. His latest mix delivers everything I loved about him downstairs at Audio that night. A crafted selection of tunes that snare you in with their decent groove and desire to keep a wiggle in your soul. Deep and delicious house that has this girl … Continue reading Perfect Distraction: Martyn Savage Mix
Joy doesn’t always come from the usual. Joy sometimes comes from left of centre, from people and places you’d least expect. After a Friday night at Audio filled with the bleeps and beeps of Zabiela a link came my way that made my day. Thank you Matt. And now I’m hooked, on the beats, the bass and the sentiment. Campaigning can be subtle, campaigning can … Continue reading Perfect Distractions: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis ‘Same Love’ feat. Mary Lambert
Every year I promise I’ll take more pictures next time. I never do. I get caught up in the moment, okay the 72 hour long moment, and forget. Too busy playing tunes, hugging the longtime no see dolls and running from venue to venue, party to party trying to remember to eat something. Yes Brighton Pride. The one weekend that seems to last longer than … Continue reading Brighton and Hove Pride 2012: More please!!
