The Globe in Brighton (Various Events From October 09)
"Recommended Brighton venue, enjoying a late night underground vibe with music to match the occasion for those in the know"
Here we go then, The Globe in Brighton is beginning to raise it's head again as a "in the know" destination for anyone wishing to get into some basement vibes on a Saturday night in town.
There are a handful of nights now focusing heavily on the groove and disco tip coming up making the venue the only dedicated spot locally where you're more or less guaranteed to get a regular dose of disco and groove in a party setting on Fridays or Saturdays in town now.
Around 2-3 years ago The Globe was very much the in place for quality underground groove based dance music locally with regular nights put on by the likes of Latenight Lounging and Askew easily catering for the more musically astute that frequented the venue each weekend.
Unfortunately changes were made internally and somehow the place fell slightly off the radar with both of the above mentioned nights moving on elsewhere as a result.
Now the situation looks promising as things are changing down in the basement once again on Middle Street .
Cosmetically The Globe is still the same, enjoying a rustic feel and interesting decor throughout, low lighting in the basement plus two separate bars (basement and upstairs both well stocked)
Now under the careful eye of the new management aka Carly from The Sidewinder there's a couple of new nights starting up in October that look worth a visit.
Disted Twisco @ The Globe, Friday 6th November 2009
One of the nights that we're all excited about is (Disted Twisco) put on by Alex Webb who provided one of our favorite guest mixes not so long ago.
Disted Twisco began life back in 2000 in Liverpool and soon became a firm favourite in the city’s underground scene. The night ran for five years and during that period it hosted guests such as Greg Wilson, Chicken Lips, Andrew Weatherall and Two Lone Swordsmen, as well as the best of the North-West’s underground players.
Alex Webb, Disted Twisco resident DJ and promoter, will be resurrecting the night on Saturday 10 October at The Globe in Brighton. You can expect chuggin house, 80’s soul and classic disco.
Listen to the set he put together for Go Bang here:
Sat 10 Oct @ The Globe
Monthly Basement Parties (Saturdays Only)
Brand new monthly parties focusing on intimate atmospheres and quality groove led dance music in the basement of The Globe each month
24th October with AD (TONKA HI-FI)
7th November with Pablo Contraband (DISCO DEVIANT)
5th December with Andy G (ELECTRIC SEX)
Featuring local dj's playing a selection of groove based music in the basement from 9pm till 3/4am
All Time Top 100 every Friday in the upstairs bar @ The Globe
This is a Brighton institution that's been going for ages and never disappoints both the avid musical fan or the casual listener.
The idea is simple, ask a well or sometimes lesser known local dj to pick 100 of their top most musical moments and invite them to play them, the nights are even recorded too, we'll try and dig some out when we can find the site they're hosted on.
Entry is Free
