Get your excuses in early... Yeah thanks Mum, gonna need to shoot off pretty early Boxing Day though ;)

C.O.R have been throwing legendary parties on Boxing Day along the South Coast in Southsea. Greg Wilson, Diesel, Graeme Park, Ashley Beedle & Alfredo have all joined the friendliest gang of disco reprobates you are ever likely to meet for some well organised debauches over the years. I'm a big fan and love their parties but have yet to make it along to a Boxing Day beano. This year it's gonna be different, plans are being made, excuses in early and a mid morning departure from the family should be pretty smooth. No Turkey sandwiches for me, I'm off to a Vintage Holiday themed H.O.U.S.E party! Tickets are available very shortly and the info you'll need is here FB EVENT By the end of play we can see a few of the crowd rolling out some Party Chat for the remaining post - Christmas telly sessions...see below!

Amen Brother

Great debut release here from Dublin based label Amen Brother.

Niall Kirk and Pete Cadden started throwing their Amen Brother parties back in 2009. Focussing on psychedelic funk and soul sounds, their parties have a solid reputation for quality and are loved by dance floor darlings and beard strokers alike.  “We’ll throw some psychedelia, James Brown and Hendrix into the mix” says Niall “People like to hear something a bit different”.

Their debut release features 3 lovingly created re-rubs by the Amen Brother Disco Band. ‘Afreeka’ is a peak time percussive groover with hypnotic vocals and a driving afro groove and ‘Gonna Get Some’ offers a more sleazy female lead offering. ‘Rollin' & Sinkin’ is the gem here for me - a rework of ‘Painted Ladies', an Ian Thomas track originally released in 1973, it’s been stuck in my head since it arrived here in the week.

Available at the usual places on vinyl now.

Poolside Mix Tape

Cracking mix here from the Poolside Boys. This dropped on soudcloud a few weeks back and it’s been on heavy rotation here since. A great selection of down tempo sounds - definitely worth a listen on those lazy, rainy days like it is here in Brighton today. 

Poolside hail from LA and the duo’s album ‘Pacific Standard Time’ was released back in July. It contains some beautiful instrumentation. Great percussion, dreamy keys, fantastic guitar work - a proper band album. Single ‘Do You Believe’ has been hammered all over the shop and THAT cover version of Neil Young’s ‘Harvest Moon’ is a fantastic highlight.

The whole album is well worth a listen if you haven’t already. Some nice limited coloured vinyl available at Piccadilly Records too if you feel like treating yourself.

NYE Brighton with Rayko, Pablo Contraband & Ben Monk

Disco Deviant have had another great year throwing a handful of excellent parties in Brighton, Oslo, Groningen and London. 

Disco Deviant's New Year's Eve party sees special guest Rayko jet over from Madrid to continue his global boogie crusade alongside chief orchestrator, Pablo Contraband and his close collaborator and fellow music fiend Ben Monk.

This night is certainly an attractive proposition for the more discerning party goer with a soft spot for quality Disco, House and Boogie, without necessarily needing things to get too deep and meaningful. 
Fun is definitely high on the agenda with plenty of room left for dancing.  The venue has been chosen with comfort and aesthetics in mind boasting panoramic sea views and stylish design.

Pablo is well known for ensuring that the music sounds superb with clarity always a priority, therefore an excellent system will be installed at the venue especially for the party.

All of this attention to detail and still the tickets are limited to 200 and held at a reasonable rate bucking the trend of new years eve's hyper inflated door prices and queues for everything.

Early Birds are just £7 & Standard Advance tickets £10
Last years party was amazing and sold out well in advance so get in there
