Patterns full programme for Autumn/Winter 2015
Entering the new season armed with a massive selection of world class electronic artists and live acts, this shining new beacon on the local scene has fast become an essential part of nightlife for Brighton’s dancing crowd. Whether you’re into house, disco, techno, drum & bass, electro, garage, grime or something in between, the Patterns crew has got the antidote to those incoming winter blues.
With September’s CLUB programme well under way, the remaining acts in store are too good not to mention. This Friday sees the ultimate US house maestro Todd Edwards alongside ‘godfather of grime’ Slimzee and UK garage don Noodles (aka Groove Chronicles) bringing a B2B session. Saturday is all about the finest and most trusted selectors with Horse Meat Disco, Psychemagik, Balearic Mike and more at the reins. Friday 18th September, ZigZag presents the best of the current bass and grime scene curated with Faze Miyake and featuring Faze himself, Mssingno, Scratcha DVA and Wen. On the Saturday, it’s an all night takeover with one of the UK’s most unshackled DJ/producers Midland – rightfully admired for his seamless exploration through the multiple strains and dubby terrains of house, techno and future electronica. The final weekend of the month, Rhythm Junction presents another strictly underground affair with NY’s White Material bosses Galcher Lustwerk & DJ Richard plus German wunderkind Damiano von Erckert, and South London’s latest breakout Henry Wu. Saturday’s excursion is with two eclectic electronic masters – Beats In Space tastemaker Tim Sweeney and Aus/Clone favourite Leon Vynehall.
Kicking off the stellar line-ups in October, the one and only Andrew Weatherall will be headlining Disco Deviant on the first Friday, 2nd October, while Lone brings his incredible AV live show to Patterns on the Saturday night along with Berlin based UK producer Palms Trax (Dekmantel Records/Lobster Theremin). The following weekend Radio 1’s Monki and Rinse FM resident DJ Haus will be bringing the vibes. Friday 10th October, the First Floor crew will be injecting a dose of the Berlin sound as Ostgut Ton / Panorama Bar affiliate Ryan Elliott and Uzuri boss and all round industry legend Lakuti get the heads buzzing. To top it all off, Powerhouse aka Head High and Prosumer B2B are descending, Saturday 17th October, followed by a final weekend with tough techno don Pangaea, Friday 23rd, and a night with the ultimate party starter Jackmaster, Saturday 24th October. Vanishing Point will be residing over Halloween, 31st October (special guests TBA).
As the November chill sets in, things are heating up on the seafront, with The Streets front man Mike Skinner presenting Tonga with Manchester collective Murkage, Friday 6th, while Patterns invites Moda Black with Sidney Charles, Jaymo & Andy George, Saturday 7th. The following weekend sees the much lauded chameleon producer Paul Woolford in his Special Request guise bringing the grit on Friday 13th and Running Back boss and master selector Gerd Janson will no doubt lay down one of his signature killer sets, Saturday 14th. Later in the month, Livity Sound’s Bristol bass heavyweights Pev & Kowton, along with Kahn & Neek will be out in force for MUTE on Friday 20th, while first lady of Chicago The Black Madonna will grace the decks for an education in classy bangers on Saturday night. The Rhythm Junction crew are back with fresh Glaswegian talent Denis Sulta and L.I.E.S artist Florian Kupfer, Friday 27th November.
Already confirmed for December is a charged up bunch of electronic renegades including Black Butter Records artist My Nu Leng, the unstoppable Seven Davis Jnr, DnB institution Hospitality 10th Birthday, Berlin vinyl purists Italojohnson, Pinch B2B with Logos and the Futureboogie massive, all making their Patterns debut before the mighty Bicep throw it down for an extra special first Patterns NYE.
