Gogglez Party


Fantastic to see one of the musical institutions of Brighton dusting off a few cobwebs and getting stuck in there again

Alonside a handful of other crews these guys are a great example of a once very healthy Brighton tradition that featured parties and club nights that played across the board dance styles, the basic formula being if it sounded good then it got played

Unfortunately I never made it to a Gogglez party but did enjoy a good few years of Brighton clubbing where the work of Googlez continued through similar nights in and around the city



Crawling from the woodwork for one night only, 15 years since their first party and 5 since their last gathering, the Gogglez boys invite you to shake your rump at the magnificent Brighton Proud Ballroom on Easter Sunday

Gogglez ran for over 5 years at The Pavilion Tavern Club (Brighton) before a brief residency at The Ocean Rooms. An open-minded music policy, bespoke decor and unpretentious attitude led to midweek clubbers queuing around the block and DJs queuing up to guest - Rob Luis (Tru Thoughts), Adam Freeland (Marine Parade), Bobby Coleman (Soft Rocks) and representatives from Metalheadz, Positive, Stompaphunk & many more graced the decks over the years. Although the sounds could shift from Funk & Hip-Hop to Disco, House, Techno & Drum n Bass (sometimes in the same night), the electric atmosphere remained unchanged

All four original residents from these sessions will man the decks at Easter in addition to very special guests and old friends, the mighty Evil 9, who have promised a special set. Tickets are priced at just £5 + bf and will be available from Rounder Records (Brighton Square) and Resident Records (Kensington Gardens) from Monday 4th April

FREE pre-club at The Thomas Kemp (St. George's Road) from 6pm on the day
