Brighton’s Best DJ and Club Nights: May 2015

Published On May 6, 2015 | By We Love Brighton | Best of Brighton, Music & Nightlife Features

May is here and with it comes one of the busiest and best months Brighton has to offer full of festivals and fun! Here we’ve picked Brighton’s best DJ and Club Nights for the month with everything from Funk & Soul to Drum & Bass!

Brighton's Best DJ and Club Nights: May 2015AGMP presents: Dub FXConcorde 2

Influenced and motivated by his love for trip hop, dubstep, jungle and even grime, Dub FX is a musician whose style is constantly changing. Having toured the world with his then-fiancée Flower Fairy, who performs ‘nursery-rhyme raps’ during his shows, the two will now perform as a newly-married couple. A Dub FX show has never been predictable, and his performances utilise live looping to create rich, soulful bass music. Dub FX has established a big following in Europe with some incredible live shows, and at this show he’ll be playing songs from his recent crowd-funded album “Theory of Harmony”.

Date: Thurs 7th May
Time/Price: 7pm | £15

Wired presents…ADRIATIQUE, Enzo Siffredi + My Cat SnoopBrighton's Best DJ and Club Nights: May 2015The Arch

ADRIATIQUE – This duos joint approach to DJing is hard to put to words but may be described as the work of true track selectors with a sound that’s at once varied yet cogent, a journey of choice tunes that are techy or deep, contemplative or energetic, constant tension and release that leaves jaws on the ground and dancing legs sore. ENZO SIFFREDI – Main man and creator of Wired & minimal kids, a fusionist in his own right. Enzo has always evolved as an outsider and continues to break musical boundaries.
