Patterns launches brand new residents led ‘FOCAL’ concept

Patterns has solidified its reputation as the cities premiere dancing spot by bringing forward-thinking and far-reaching sounds to Brighton week in, week out. Always distinctive and diverse; the line-ups span from left-leaning techno stompers to hi-energy grime, dusty disco grooves to heads down hip-hop. To see the year out, Patterns has curated a packed-out calendar of parties and live shows, featuring DJ Fett Burger, Ebi Soda, L U C Y, Batu, Kahn & Neek, Raphaël Top-Secret, Maurice Fulton, Sally C and more. And, there’s more huge news with the launch of ‘FOCAL’.The idea is simple, each resident will in time invite an artist they have a connection with to play with them all night long. FOCAL will not be defined by set times; each party will unravel naturally. First off Charles Green presents : Ryan Elliott, followed by Methola presents : Willow. Tickets and more information for shows :


There’s plenty of action in fresher’s this September, kicking off with high-brow heat from L U C Y who plays the regular Foundations session on the 20th. Next up, there’s Patterns faves Horse Meat Disco heading to the basement, joined by residents Mr Bongo. A special one is in store on Sept 23rd as Boiler Room takeover with a heavy bill. On a different tip, there’s discerning jazz from an Offie Mag presented night with Chloé Bodur, Yadasofi and Ebi Soda, and rounding off the week is a free jungle party from Foundations gang on the 27th and Or:la with Batu and Momo with angular techno and cosmic creations on the 28th; the final instalment of her residency.


October kicks off with the return of garage gang Klub Kiwi, hosted by label boss Conducta with guests Sharda and PDV; expect badboy basslines to soundtrack the night. On Saturday 5th it’s Sex Tags Mania head honcho DJ Fett Burger who makes his club debut with a three hour set of  dance-floor  oddities. The following weekend it’s Manchester’s finest, Chimpo, heading to the basement all night long and on Saturday 12th October, it’s the very first FOCAL event. For the primary party, long-term Patterns resident Charles Green invites Ryan Elliott to join him; a DJ / producer who has been a source of inspiration for Charles. In the later half of the month, SHOOK and Foundations bring Scratcha DVA to the club, there’s Cooking with Palms Trax ft. Raphaël Top-Secret, plus Kahn & Neek play all night long, and Soirée presents Harrison BDP


Starting November with a dose of low-end theory it’s Foundations x 23 Degrees on the 1st with a host of dubstep and bass’s breakout names. FAUZIA & Sicaria Sound, i-sha & Layce will journey through sounds from the 140 to 160 BPM spectrum. Brighton based independent label Tru Thoughts celebrate their 20th anniversary on 2nd with global hip-hop, soul and more. On the 9th it’s the second date in the FOCAL series; this time it’s Methola inviting revered selector and producer Willow to join him in a session that’ll span left-leaning techno, acid and breaks. Also through November see DJ Boring and Maurice Fulton play at separate Patterns in house parties, DJ Flight heading to the club space with a disco-fuelled agenda and more Foundations sessions with Manara and ANZ, and a Free Liquid Party. There are a few more big names to join through this month too; keep your eyes on socials for updates.


December is another big month in the Patterns diary with solid selection of names joining each week. Ones to watch include the Brighton stop of the In Dust We Trust UK tour with Chaos In The CBD and Jon Sable on 7th December, who’ll be playing all night long in Patterns’ much loved rave space. The following Saturday, Belfast’s finest Sally C returns with her trademark selection of nostalgic classics and dusty rare grooves, one not to miss. For a taste of what is in store, check her Boiler Room here. There’s a belting line-up in store for NYE, which brings together two of Pattern’s favourites selections for what will be a trip into 2020. And of course, there’ll be more Foundations sessions on Friday’s for those fans of all things Drum N Bass, jungle, hip-hop, grime and more. More information will be released soon.
