Glory Glory have been putting on fantastic all day parties for Brighton Pride for four years. Starting at Brighton Rocks Pride Festival in 2011, they’ve built up to great success. Now for 2014 they have upped the ante, upped sticks, and relocated to the Concorde2 to put on a great big cracking rave.
Glory Glory’s Pride event on Sun 3 August will feature three arenas of different music to cater for house music lovers of all flavours. The venue is creating a special outside area for vocal/groovy house, the bar area will provide eclectic grooves with tougher house sounds in the main room.
Headlining this year is the World Famous Superstar Darren Emerson. In 1990, Darren joined techno band Underworld. In 1996 they released the single “Born Slippy”, which became a hit after its inclusion on the soundtrack for ‘Trainspotting’. Parting ways with Underworld in 2000, Darren began concentrating more on his solo career as a DJ and his remix work and his label. Since then he’s continued DJing relentlessly around the world.
Brighton’s very own Freemasons top the bill over in the special outside area. The Grammy nominated act with five UK top 20 hits under their belt played an enormously successful set at last year’s party and has been rebooked due to popular demand from Glory Glory regulars. DJ Russell Small and Producer Jimmy Wiltshire are regular guests at Pride parties worldwide and have a huge following that are drawn to their huge vocal house anthems and huge basslines.
Also joining the Glory Glory Pride line-up is Justin Robertson, a producer and DJ who brings with him a rich history as one of the creators of the Electronic Music scene. His restless need to push forward and innovate makes him one of the most relevant DJs around. Justin’s latest incarnation as The Deadstock 33s has been garnishing lavish praise from established figures such as Andrew Weatherall and Erol Alkan. Justin also found time to produce the achingly beautiful ‘’Yes It Is’’ with Tim Burgess, record reggae in Jamaica with Ernest Ranglin and Nadine Sutherland, front the art rock combo Thee Earls, write songs for two Fatboy Slim albums and run his own Neverwork label.
Other great acts on the bill include St. Etienne legend Pete Wiggs, Rhythm Master and top remixer Steve Mac and Seamus Haji from Big Love Records.
Putting something back into Brighton, this great annual party is raising money for HIV charities Sussex Beacon, Brighton Oasis and the Pride Rainbow Fund, as well as providing the great after, after party for Pride 2014!
