A Very Brighton Tradition?
Banging On The Air Ducts
Just been flicking through some pictures from our festival launch party and spied this one. OK nothing too out of the ordinary, a few people milling about checking some music early on in the evening. However if you check top left you'll see a guy banging on the air ducts down in the basement we used.
As memory serves, there was a lot of this banging on metal to show appreciation of individual tunes, the main culprits being various local record producers, djs and dancers as the night went on.
Would dearly love to know how this originated or even if it's a tradition not from round our way. American house music dancers used to jack their bodies against the walls of clubs back in the day, so maybe this is something similar.
Anyhow, great to see some passion and feeling back in the house again in Brighton.
