Nina Kraviz

Nina Kraviz is currently the name on everyone’s lips in the house and techno community. Very rarely does a DJ/Producer shoot to stardom so quickly – and when they do, they seldom have the talent to back it up. Nina is the exception to the rule. Last year saw her release a second single on Naif, as well as a collaboration with Sascha Funke on BPitch Control and the well received remix of Okain’s ‘Scream’ on Tsuba.

Fat!beaches Night

As always we are delighted to deliver minimalistic deep and dark side House and Techno music to your ears. Think about modern, fresh, solid beats standing out from already clichéd popular electronic music you can find in every other club. Often we go back in time as we also believe that less is more in some cases. We would like to introduce you to quality sound, the sort of experience you might find in Berlin, London, Amsterdam or Barcelona! We believe it is crucial to choose pure music and we would like you to be part of it! This time our dj guest will be Mary Cones from Brighton beloved night – ‘Change’. She will be spinning some techno vinyls for this special occasion which also happens to be Subtone’s birthday party!

Since the mid-noughties DPM has been a Brighton clubbing institution, with every Brighton clubber having a seat on the DPM merry-go-round at some point in their clubbing careers. Musically DPM is house music with a nod to the underground, with occasional big name DJs but most importantly an army of local talent providing the ‘party first’ non-pretentious attitude the parties have become known to represent.
