Berlin - Brighton, Codesouth.FM
Two strangers enter a toilet at a Pan Pot gig, they emerge as friends, and two years later are ready to start showing the city of Brighton and the rest of the world their unique style of dance floor groovers.
Luke and Owen, aka Monica, have been members of the dance floor generation since their late teens. With a musical choice that is sometimes considered to sit just outside what the majority of people in Brighton play, and a love for the Berlin sound, it wasn't long before they were offered their first taste of limelight, when the head honcho of Nightshift Records, Sami Kubu, offered them a slot on her bi-monthly podcast. The podcast was to be released as a Halloween special in 2016. The mix was an emotional and moody eclectic mix of music both Luke and Owen love with groove from start to finish. It was well received by both listeners and Nightshift records themselves and building on their success secured a weekly radio show on Codesouth FM.
Since then Monica have been involved in numerous Berlin-Brighton events and completed a Berlin Mixtapes Guest mix for us too.

A longstanding member of the Berlin - Brighton crew and well-known figure within Brighton's Underground Music Scene. Colin or 'Colinos' as he is known in the Berlin family, burst onto the stage 2 years ago in his quest for deep underground sounds. It wasn't long until he was firmly nestled into the Brighton scene with gigs at Block, The Tempest, The Volks, the Arch, Marwoods and the Fortune of War as well as an outing last year at Generator Barcelona and the Bimble Festival, gaining quick recognition by his musical piers and partygoers.
Colin started his own radio show 'Koipinoxia' towards the tail end of 2018 on Trickstar Radio, where you can catch him on the airwaves every Thursday 22:00-00:00 delivering a multitude of deep, progressive and melodic flavours. Colin will be warming up proceedings, so luscious grooves are guaranteed.
JUST : ALI
Melody is the very essence of music and provides a bright and beautiful light that flickers in the dark.
Back by popular demand and twenty years in the making with sets at legendary clubs including The Cross and Turnmills, Just:Ali’s love affair with music remains as insatiable as it was from the very day he was bitten. Stepping back from playing out and building a career behind the scenes at some of the UKs largest festivals and events including Glastonbury, Lovebox, Drumcode, Abode and Junction 2, this return sees a rebirth and a return to form.
Just:Ali brings a battery of driving beats spiked with melody and voice from a palette of Europe's finest techno labels and producers.
Is this night for you?
Of course it is, have you seen the line-up??? Come if you like House, Deep House, Tech House, Funk, Funky House & Techno. Come if you like stickers, glitter, confetti, laughing lots, speaking in a German accent, lasers, The Hoff, Jägermeister, saying 'Ja' a lot, dancing, musical journeys, inflatable animals, high fünfing a lot!
Why does Berlin now charge entry?
We want to bring you some of the biggest and best artists out of Germany and continue to share with you ground breaking underground music. To do that we need to finance the night and we can no longer fund it for free especially if we're bringing over artists from Berlin. We are still the cheapest club night in Brighton and we aim to keep to that and make underground music accessible to all.
