TO CELEBRATE THE NEW MONTHLY RESIDENCY IN BRIGHTON BEGINNING SATURDAY 25th OCTOBER
ABOUT GO BANG
Using influences from Disco to Underground House via Re-edits and Boogie. Dedicated to combining Both Seminal and Modern Day Electronic Disco Music in all it''s various forms.
Go Bang began back in the summer of 2006 as a direct result of hearing a new take on Electronic Disco Music coming out of The UK Festival Scene that summer.
The following 2 years have seen Go Bang Brighton in it''s various forms play and host parties at The very first Brighton City Festival, Brighton Frequency Festival, The Great Escape Festival and The Calabash 2008 Tent at Pride In The Park this year.
Along side hosting Brighton''s first "Micro Disco" Festival in 2008 at various underground basement bars and back street boozers Go Bang under it''s previous name (Broadcast Loft Party) was responsible for bringing back to Brighton the cornerstone of UK DJing Greg Wilson who is regarded as the pioneer of The UK Electrofunk Scene and King of The Re-Edit.
Preferring to look in the opposite direction from Ibiza and towards New York City instead, Go Bang is one of the few remaining nights locally to combine both modern day electronic dance music with hidden gems from the original glory days of the New York Underground Disco Scene.
Drawing on a vast collection of vinyl releases expect to hear Tirk Records, Salsoul, Disco Dimensions, DFA, Padded Cell, Prelude, London Heavy Disco Revue, Lindstrom, Raw DMX, Ray Mang, Faze Action, Loose Joints, Levan Classics, Ripple, T Connection, Crown Heights Affair, Firefly, Compost Recordings, Greg Wilson Edits, Disco Not Disco, The Popular Peoples Front, Atlantic, Munk, D Train, LSB, Mindless Boogie, Move D, Dinosaur L, Aleem, Disco Deviance, Pete Herbert, Swag, Mid-Air
ABOUT OUR NEW MONTHLY HOME (THE HOPE)
Situated on Brighton''s Queens Road, The Hope is one of the last remaining bars that offers a decent sound system for dj''s to play on. Inside there are plenty of comfy leather sofas to chill out on plus plenty of space to dance around.
