THE TUBE PRESENTS: HYPERCOLOUR //

This coming SATURDAY – the 27th August – sees a take over at THE TUBE from House & Techno label HYPERCOLOUR, with headline sets from ENDIAN, SHENODA and label bossman, CEDRIC MAISON.

ENDIAN is an incredibly mysterious name on the scene right now, and we’re intrigued to see what is on offer. With a brilliant review on Resident Advisor for Endian’s “Two Chords Deep” EP – read it HERE – his set promises to be full of mesmerizing Deep House, Bass and Techno.
Listen below to the title track, a hypnotic 6 minutes of gorgeous bass and softly textured, all-encompassing rhythms. We’ve put up the flip side too, a track entitled “Doze”, for more aural amazement and pleasure – Endian is definitely one to watch!

Next up is SHENODA. Signed to Hypercolour, with forthcoming material set to be released on the label as well as on others such as Fresh Meat and Sonida, the future is set to be big for this guy. His productions have a compelling groove, a sense of driving forward, that propels them onwards and keeps you interested. With carefully placed vocal samples and fragments of punchy melodies, with 2-Steppy scatty rhythms, he experiments with the Electronic sound, having a refreshingly free approach to making music. Listen below to “Favourite”, a stand-out track from the “Shots” EP – out now on Hypercolour:

Supporting will be CEDRIC MAISON, co-owner of Hypercolour and fast becoming a regular at The Tube – we love him, and we know you dance freaks do too! Expect sick blends of House and Techno with loads of flair.

THE TUBE PRESENTS: GIRL UNIT //

This is definitely one for the diary… SATURDAY 20TH AUGUST see’s a pretty big night hitting Brighton seafront, with a huge lineup set to rinse THE TUBE and shake us all into a club-fueled madness. Headlining is the London-based NIGHT SLUGS strongman and globally respected DJ/Producer, GIRL UNIT, with fellow Night Slug GREENA, Well Rounded’s DONGA and Jailbait’s NICOLE DE LEIBURNE on the support.

If you managed to miss GIRL UNIT‘s release “Wut” last year, you must have been doing something especially wrong. Such was it’s wide roaming appeal, it could be heard on systems all around the world, even prompting Minimal House legend, Claude Von Stroke, to remix it.
Add that to last year’s similarly world comquering single “IRL” and you have a pretty impressive back catalogue for someone still in their early twenties. Pure spaced out crunk:

He’s also done some flawless mixes for Resident Advisor, Fact Magazine and the like – check out his mix for Numbers, below – chock full of massive tunes and wicked blending…

Fellow member of the Night Slugs crew, 23 year old GREENA, will be making an appearance too. Relatively new on the scene but already causing a stir, Greena certainly knows how to create an atmosphere with his DJing. Check out his mix for XLR8R to see what we mean – unfortunately we can’t stream it, but click HERE to be redirected to their website. This is what they had to say on the matter:
“You can go ahead an add Greena to the list of artists to obsess over. On this exclusive mix, the 23-year-old Londoner and Night Slugs cohort whips together the usual assortment of dubplates and unreleased tunes from scene heavyweights like Untold, Brackles, Bok Bok, and Roska, but he also stretches his musical boundaries further than many of his contemporaries will dare, slotting in vintage techno, ghettotech, upfront house, and even some grime-flavored R&B. It may sound a bit schizophrenic, but Greena weaves his way between genres with ease, resulting in one particularly potent XLR8R podcast.


It’s gonna be a night to remember, full of exciting, heavy, future-fresh and inspiring selections.
Be sure to get down early for FREE ENTRY and 2-4-1 on the cocktails before midnight.

HACENADA PRESENTS: XXXY //

Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, Orca Recordings x Local Action will no longer be taking place at The Tube on SATURDAY 2nd JULY – however, do not fear, as HACENADA have stepped in and will certainly deliver!

Previously booked headliner XXXY will still be playing, rolling through with blissed out bass that’ll melt your mind, not your face…


The Manchester-based producer XXXY, known to his mum as Rupert, is known for refining the propulsive, foot-forward sound of UK garage. Over the past year he has built a solid reputation with milestone releases on Infrasonics and Fortified Audio, as well as featuring on the seminal Fabric compilation “Elevator Music”. The cheeky little number below is forthcoming on our favourite label: Well Rounded Records.

Support will come from three of the finest, forward thinking, future-funksters in the game – who just happen to be from Brighton: DOM, LORCA, BROWN NOISE and EL TOPPO.

One of the original pioneers of the Brighton scene, DOM has torn it apart at many of the legendary Dubpressure raves – you”ll recognize him for his flawless mixing and massive selection. Joining him, LORCA – the little man with a mighty mind for music! – is gonna keep things rumbling.

As always on our Saturday nights, ENTRY IS FREE before midnight and £5/4 thereafter.

It’s worth getting down early to make the most of our 2-4-1 cocktails, which will be pouring out of the bar until midnight too.

Check out the Facebook Event Page HERE for more information!

THE TUBE PRESENTS: JULIO BASHMORE //

JULIO BASHMORE returns to Brighton on SATURDAY 9th JULY, gracing THE TUBE with a headline set not to be missed.

After his superb performance for WELL ROUNDED RECORDS at The Green Door Store earlier this year, we are incredibly excited to welcome him back for a second time. Bristol born JULIO BASHMORE has been tearing it up all over the world with his productions, having had releases on DirtyBird, Ten Thousand Yen, PMR, Soul Motive, Futureboogie Recordings, and Night Slugs to name but a few. These forward thinking labels are fittingly representative of Julio’s own future-facing stance on Electronic music.

Check out a brilliant mix he did for Curb Crawlers way back in 2009 here – CCMixtape004.mp3 – slick mixing and awesome choices, Bashmore can certainly DJ to the highest level…

Hugely influenced by House, as well as the Bass music scene which he grew up with in Bristol, Julio takes elements of each genre and frees them from the norm – the skewed angle at which Julio approaches House music is instantly fresh and engaging. It’s difficult to say what it is exactly that has created so much fever around the name Julio Bashmore – but bounce to the blissed-out Garage of ‘Footsteppin’, lose your mind to his Mosca remix, or turn out the lights for ‘Batak Groove‘ and you’ll realise, simply, that it’s just something you feel.

Recent single ‘Battle For Middle You’ (above) was also particularly successful.

Ample support on the night comes from Well Rounded veteran DONGA, and it’s FREE ENTRY before 12 // £5 thereafter. It’s worth getting down early as 2-4-1 Cocktails will also be flowing freely before midnight!

WELL ROUNDED 006: DEADBOY + SUPPORT //

WELL ROUNDED RECORDS present another label showcase at THE TUBE on SATURDAY 16TH APRIL.

Headlining the night will be DEADBOY. Signed to Well Rounded Records and based in London, this DJ/Producer holds a strong and highly respected place in the swiftly moving world of UK bass music. He saw huge success with the big release of his single ‘If U Want Me’ on the Numbers label – listen below to this absolute piece of genius…

Tapping into London’s rich musical history, from early 90’s Hardcore all the way through to present day UK Garage and House, Deadboy’s tracks also take influence from scenes across the pond, sharing a similar sense of melancholy that we saw in the first waves of Detroit Techno.

His music has been described as “heartache for the dancefloor”, and with his penchant for swinging garage beats and ethereal, pitch-shifting vocal samples, it’s not hard to see why. Read a nice little review and listen to/download a wicked mix he did for XLR8R by clicking HERE.

Joining Deadboy on the Well Rounded 006 bill will be LITTLEFOOT, also signed to the label and steadily making his sound heard across the UK. Usually based in Nottingham, he is bringing his mix of House, Garage and Techno down South for all us lucky people at The Tube.
DONGA, TEMPLE and BEN WHITE will be providing powerful support; so get yourselves down here for a well rounded night of madness!
Entry is £5 all night, doors open at 11pm and the party will go on late…

WELL ROUNDED 005: THIS SATURDAY //

It’s gonna be big, it’s gonna go down… THE TUBE keeps things rolling for its second weekend with a showcase from Well Rounded Records, this Saturday 19th March.

Headlining the night will be C.R.S.T, blending a hype and heavy mix of Garage, House and Funky; these four producers from South Wales are creating tidal waves in the music world and have shared the stage with big names such as Redlight, Tempa T, Rusko and Julio Bashmore to name but a few.

Lock in to this wicked mix C.R.S.T did recently for Rinse FM:

Joining C.R.S.T will be London-based producer JAMES FOX. His DJ sets sweep across a range of house, bass-driven rhythms and UK flavors, and he mixes these different elements – as well as breaking and reforming them – to create an other-worldly musical landscape, unrestricted by genre. With full support from producers such as Jackmaster and Brackles, he is emerging onto the scene with vigor and is definitely one to watch. Fox’s latest offering is about to drop on Well Rounded’s own label Housing Project… very smooth indeed:

Donga & Blake, plus Dubpressure founder Unlikely, will also be playing on the night.
