In The Face

Venue: Volks Bar & Club

Location: Brighton, UK

Date: May 15 to May 16

Length: 11:00 pm – 6:00 am

In The Face celebrates its 5th Birthday (5 years I know right!) and we are doing it in style with 2 absolutely killer headliners who both debut at Volks, not to mention the Uncle of bassline Krissi B & Hudders madman Mr C! Expect stickers and plenty of birthday cake too…and in Room 2 we have Sicknote – Brighton’s Techno Night providing some heavy techno, and the lovely ladies of Amenstrual smashing it with jungle, tek, grime & more!


★ ROOM 1 ★

(Hyperdub/Formula Records/Harddrive/Butterz)
Combining UK Funky, Garage & Grime Champions sound is certainly unique. With some big releases on Hyperdub alongside Terror Danjah, as well as on Four Tets label last year with his huge remix of Kool FM, and running his own bass label Formula Records, Champion will be smashing the granny out of it at In The Face.

(Butterz/Formula Records/RKS)
The queen of garage & grime production Flava D has been absolutely killing it recently with multiple releases on Butterz & Formula (In The Dance being tune of the year last year right?) as well as her own exclusive releases on Bandcamp, and a regular slot on Rinse as part of the Butterz show. Her live sets are no exception, we caught her at the Bangface Weekender and it was the highlight of the Festival. This one is gonna go off!

(Northern Line Records/Stomp N Wonk SWB/Mutant Bass)
Da Uncle of bassline Krissi B returns to Brighton to school us on where this sound comes from. Northern bassline with a grittier edge to it, expect some heaviness! For a good taste check out his collection of classics recently released on Stomp N Wonk Records.

(In:Flux Audio/Off Me Nut)
Also from up north but with a slightly housier vibe is Mr C, who’s tunes reflect the new way in which this genre is progressing. That doesn’t mean there aren’t some serious bangers in there too, Mr C has a knack with catchy vocal hooks blended expertly with big bad basslines, as on his latest split EP with Brightons own Pavv.

(In The Face/Mutant Bass/Tumble Audio)
Our floorkilling residents have been working the crowds at In The Face since the beginning and are well versed in the art of making you move. Always armed with the freshest cuts of bassline, garage, juke, tropical or your money back!

★ ROOM 2 ★

Brightons longest running techno night take over the second room for some heavy techno. Putting on seriously sick music is what Sicknote is all about, and after In The Face smashed it with a takeover at their last night they’re coming to us to return the favour.

Brighton & Bristols baddest gyals bring the fire with pumping amens, gabber kicks & plenty of grime to boot! You can catch them in room 2 with an all-star, all female lineup!
