Patterns Saturdays - February
Get the low down on February’s Saturday schedule as we get stuck into the second month of our Winter //// Spring 2016 club season.
Co-founder of the infamous Hessle Audio imprint, Ben UFO needs little introduction, a true tastemaker, and one of the most original DJs of our time. With a commendable level of dedication to challenging the dance floor, with sounds both old and new, whilst also holding a trusty knack for recognising the most up-to-the-minute emerging talent. At the end of last year Ben stepped up to deliver one of the 5 ‘RA500’ podcasts (one of our favorite mixes from 2015), if ever an indication of how universally respected the chap is, that would be it.
Joining him on the night will be German selector, producer and long-lasting resident of the iconic Düsseldorf club Salon Des Amateurs, the impressive Lena Willikens.
After one year of holding it down in Brighton, with parties across the city featuring the likes Palms Trax, Spencer Parker, Anthony Parasole, Ed Davenport, Tin Man, Steevio + Suzybee, XDB, Ryan Elliott, Lakuti, ItaloJohnson and a whole host of local talent, we’re proud to be hosting First Floor’s birthday, celebrating with a special extended set from Simian Mobile Disco alongside a return Live show from Tin Man.
As tradition goes they’ll be welcoming back some of their favourite resident DJs alongside a few new additions.
Chris Davids and Liam Ivory AKA Maribou State have fostered a cult following through their sterling repertoire of well loved releases, remixes (including Kelis, Ultraísta, Fatboy Slim and Lana Del Rey) & vibrant DJ sets.
Intrigued by the dynamics of electronic music for the dancefloor as much as with the richness and human quality of live instrumentation and song-craft, they’ve met somewhere in the middle, prepped with a rich amalgamation of the organic and the synthetic, showcased on their forthcoming debut album Portraits.
Sonic sculptor, and fellow MS friend Pedestrian joins the lineup as well.
Erol Alkan has been keeping kids dancing since the early naughties (it says it on the t shirt) and remained at the forefront of the British underground movement ever since. His Phantasy record label has set the pace with monumental releases from the likes of Daniel Avery, Klaxons and Ghost Culture. Add to this his radio 6 residency and it’s clear to see why he still headlines Fabric, The Warehouse Project and other top venues across continents.
Always a Brighton favorite this one.
