For the penultimate Disco Deviant party in Brighton they’re bringing in a heavyweight. Over the last ten years, Andrew Weatherall has remained a long-term favourite for this crew. A key figure in dance culture, he was there at the beginning of UK clubbing, when dancefloors became more open-minded and loved-up. A founder member of the legendary Boys Own fanzine and purveyor of quality underground music, he’s a creative and inspired artist. He joins Pablo Contraband in the booth, along with and long overdue visit from Tim Keenoy.
