Funk Phenomenon and its bigger sister, Disco Lovers, are throwing a massive two-roomed event to send off Brighton Music Conference. Heading to Komedia on Fri 27 April, there’ll be disco and some proper house classics in the downstairs bar, while upstairs will host a selection of the finest old-school funk and hip-hop. For such a special occasion, they’ve brought some true heavyweights to keep those pulses racing.
It’s been almost five years since Disco Lovers started throwing parties in Brighton. They continue to say ‘No!’ to intolerance, and ‘Yes!’ to having a good time. For the BMC Closing Party, they decided they’d better bring a true titan of dance music to close it all down.
So, get ready for the mighty Graeme Park, curator of the Hacienda Classical project and original resident DJ from Manchester’s legendary Hacienda club. A true pioneer of dance music, Graeme was instrumental in the UK house sound with his club classic Carino, along with co-producer Mike Pickering. Aside from his nine-year residency at Britain’s most influential club, he was one of the first British DJs to play places like Australia, South America, the USA, Asia and beyond. He will be bringing a superb classic house and underground disco set to Brighton. Most able support comes in the form of Estonia’s Disco Tallinn.
Over in the upstairs bar, Funk Phenomenon will be breaking it down with some sublime groves. Tru Thoughts Records’ star J Felix and English Disco Lovers resident Sam Moffett will be playing quality hip hop, RnB, soul, funk and boogie. You know it makes sense.
