Winding it down in Brighton - 10 years is a long time - Friday 14 Sept - Andrew Weatherall.

Hideout Brighton | 211 Kings Road Arches BN1 1NB, Brighton, BN1 1NB, United Kingdom
This is the last Disco Deviant party we will be throwing locally. After 10 years I have decided it's time to stop running these parties in Brighton. It's been emotional. I will still be taking Disco Deviant on the road for parties elsewhere and am still in love with music and DJing. I just feel we should call time on what's been a fantastic decade of parties.  The final fling will be in November. Before that happens we have the Guv'nor....

Andrew Weatherall has remained a long term favourite of ours, he almost serves as a figurehead and guardian of the realm. Purveyor of quality underground music, a creative and inspired artist and one of the most satisfying DJ's to dance to.

Andrew's DJ schedule looks busier than ever and we are looking forward to having him join Pablo Contraband in the Disco Deviant booth one last time .

A long overdue visit from Tim Keenoy (The Date) who I am happy to welcome to the line up. He's a lovely chap and always makes me laugh a lot too.

Looking forward to this one immensely.  THERE ARE ONLY 100 ADV TICKETS AVAILABLE HERE


Let's see this thing off properly, together for one last time..

PABLO CONTRABAND - Ode to Maurice Fulton mix

Disco Deviant is now into it's 10th year and I am really looking forward to having one of my favourite producers and DJ's Maurice Fulton play a 3 hour set for us on Friday 20th April. It got me thinking about how many of Maurice's productions and remixes I play regularly in my sets. He is prolific and has released under various monikers including Boof, Syclops, Stress and Dr Scratch. His remixes are consistently on another level, sliding easily into classic status as they stand the test of time.
I decided to put an Ode of Maurice Fulton together. A 30 minute mix made entirely of his tracks and remixes. I could of easily made it 2 hours and feel like I left some of his biggest tracks out.
I hope you enjoy the mix and can join us to celebrate our 10th year on Friday 20th April at Hideout, Brighton.

Maurice Fulton returns to Brighton on April 20 for Disco Deviant's 10th Birthday at Hideout.

Maurice Fulton has been a huge influence and a constant feature of so many DJ's sets. His productions are like no-one else's we can think of, perfectly fusing genres and vocals within a framework of super tight percussion and killer bass lines.
His remixes for Rhye, Roisin Murphy and Alice Smith demonstrate this outstanding ability perfectly.
We are so happy to welcome Maurice back to Brighton to play a 3 hour set and celebrate the 10th year of Disco Deviant with us all.
Disco Deviant mainstay Pablo Contraband will be joined by our newest resident and Unity stablemate Tech Support for a night of disco excess at our new favourite, Hideout.
As it's a small capacity venue (200) Advance tickets will most likely sell out. LINK to Tickets - Group of 4 deal £24+BF

Tickets are also available in Resident on Kensington Gardens, Brighton.

ALSO on sale is our offering for The Great Escape this year - Erol Alkan joins Pablo Contraband for a Phantasy Showcase featuring Gabe Gurnsey and Cowboy Rhythmbox.

Late Nite Tuff Guy is in Brighton on Sun 27 August

Disco Deviant is proud to invite Australia’s finest musical export and chief disco vigilante Late Nite Tuff Guy for a very special Bank Holiday Sunday set at Patterns in August.
A superb DJ with immaculate programming and flawless mixing skills, Late Nite Tuff Guy’s rise has been nothing short of spectacular. His talent for reworking classic, soulful disco tracks into modern clubbing wonders has propelled him to the top of the edit scene, with his reworks rapidly becoming classics in their own right. With releases on TK Disco, his own Tuff Cuts / Soul Cuts imprint, as well as Midnight Riot and Razor N Tape, to name a few, LNTG remains the undisputed king of modern disco. His remix credentials are just as impressive - his latest and most notable contribution was the official remix of New Order - People on the High Line, which kicked off a busy summer schedule in 2016. 2017 has so far seen him deliver killer sets at Rainbow Serpent, Splendour in the Grass, Boardmasters, Ibiza, Berlin, Manchester and London.
His sets, characterized by the kind of effortless mastery that can only come with experience, have won him thousands of new fans throughout the world, in packed clubs from Glasgow to Bristol and Dublin to Vienna, Oslo and Paris. We are lucky to have found the chance to invite him back to Brighton for the first time since last summer.

Pablo Contraband is back for a special Brighton appearance, after the Disco Deviant party with Crazy P and DJ Nature at the end of July. 

Jakespeare opens proceedings setting the mood for a sultry, soulful night from 10pm.

Tickets starting at £10 each - Photo ID required for entry. ROAR
