WEEK 8: DRUM & BASS, MR BONGO AND BIMM TAKE CENTRE STAGE

United We Stream Brighton continues to showcase some of the city’s best local artists and venues to help raise money for local charities and to keep the city’s nightlife alive.

Week 8 welcomes a very special stream on Friday from one of Brighton’s most loved spaces, and an epic drum & bass session from The Volks straight into to your living room. The line up includes; Calyx & Teebee, Degs (dj set), Erb n Dub ft Eksman & Herbzie, Levela, Unglued.

On Saturday we head to Patterns for an eclectic line up presented by renowned record label and shop Mr Bongo. Kicking things off are Normanton Street, an unstoppable musical force combining elements of Jazz, Soul, R’n’B and Hip Hop, followed by some unique and diverse tunes from Dashia. Next up are indie-pop outfit RALPH TV, who Clash Magazine call “Slacker pop gems”, their unique blend of evocative modern pop pays homage to the stylish romantic pop acts of the 80s, the likes of Prefab Sprout, Orange Juice and Aztec Camera. Mr Bongo head honchos deliver a sublime infusion mix of Brazilian, Latin, Reggae, African and Jazz infused-music. Contemporary jazz newcomers Ebi Soda, an invigorating mix of bustling rhythms, powerful piano chords and earworm melodies with DJ Format wrapping things up with some infectious soulful hip-hop breaks and beats.

On Sunday Europe’s leading music college BIMM, presents an hour of lockdown performances along with original drama shorts by students from Brighton’s IC Theatre, followed by entertaining and hilarious singing impressions from comedienne Jess Robinson.

The idea is for locals as well as people around the world to enjoy and experience Brighton’s music, art and culture through the website and social platforms. United We Stream Brighton is free, but with donations welcome, and all proceeds will go to support night-time economy businesses and cultural organisations across Brighton & Hove as well as contributing to the fight against homelessness and the vital work undertaken by the Grassroots charity and Audio Active.
