Patterns celebrates its 1st birthday with the return of legendary party boy Jackmaster.

One of the most in-demand selectors around, Numbers boss Jackmaster has an impressive bag of tricks meaning you never quite know what you’re going to hear next – be it obscure disco tracks one minute, then straight-up techno the next.

Joining Jackmaster is one-third of Studio Barnhus, Kornel Kovacs.

Ninja Tune veteran and supreme selector, Mr Scruff’s sets are a melting pot of jazz, soul, hip hop, funk, disco, deep house, reggae, afrobeat, latin, electrofunk, techno, new wave and plenty of goodies that don’t fit into any category.

Club Nights Brighton May 201614th May: Joy Orbison B2B Fold, Patterns

From the early days of his sister handing him Zed Bias tapes, to making satirically titled club weapons ‘Big Room Tech House DJ Tool – TIP!’, his Hinge Finger efforts with The Trilogy Tape’s boss Will Bankhead, and being billed on all the top club & festival line-ups, Joy Orbison has made strides as both a DJ and producer.

For Joy Orbison’s Patterns debut, he’ll go back to back with fellow London tastemaker, Fold.
