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.

DOLLOP holds its Brighton launch party at THE TUBE on SATURDAY 23RD JULY!

Originally born in Nottingham 7 years ago, DOLLOP is a club night that revolves around forward thinking, electronic music. It grew in size and moved to London around 4 years ago, and events now run regularly in both cities, making dollop one of the most exciting UK club nights of 2011.

Never tied to one specific genre, bookings can involve a combination of DJ’s, bands and live acts. To mark dollop’s 7th birthday they are launching a series of events across the UK – this will be dollop’s first event in Brighton, with lots more to come! Keep your eyes peeled… Check out a video from a Nottingham night, featuring Jamie XX, Jackmaster, Joy Orbison, Benji B and Julio Bashmore:

Headlining dollop’s entrance at The Tube will be London-based BRAIDEN. Constantly mutating and branching out, this young man is at the very pinnacle of Bass music coming out of London at the moment. As one of its most able DJs, he employs an amalgam of sophisticated techniques and a selective imagination which takes in everything from sumptuous House to the most developed Dubstep, stopping by Future Garage, UK Funky, Juke and unpredictable Techno on the way. Check out the intensely swervy and epic “The Alps”, below, released last year, to get a flava of his own production style:

Supporting Braiden will be the resident dollop DJ’s, and more TBA – watch this space – and check the Facebook Event Page HERE for updates!

As always on a Saturday, it’s FREE ENTRY before 12 / £5 thereafter.

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.

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!

THIS FRIDAY – the 8th April – we at THE TUBE are hyped up and excited to welcome you to the LAUNCH PARTY of our new weekly clubnight, MOTEL.

MOTEL will take up residency at The Tube, running each and every Friday night under Brighton’s iconic King’s Road Arches.

At Motel we take our partying seriously – music is always at the forefront, we will never charge high entrance prices and all of our expertly crafted drinks are served in glasses.

We will specialize in sleazy house and electro, big beats, stripped back bar vibes and limitless late nights – after the doors open, they will stay open until the party ends organically – usually at around 5/6am.

The intimate space of The Tube also makes for intimate, select and stylish clubbing. As such, Motel reserves the right to refuse entry if we do not feel you are right for the party – we know the right people will understand.


Incase you’re interested, we’ll also offer a wide range of promotion priced drinks plus 2-4-1 cocktails… AND as a cheeky little bonus, to celebrate our launch we’ll be giving out a complimentary glass of Champagne on entry. Just head to the Facebook Event – CLICK HERE – and post your full names onto the wall to get on the guestlist and qualify for your free bubbly…

So come on down, the party starts here!
