On Saturday 6th July, Berlin-based, Belfast-bred Cromby is up for his Pattern’s debut at 110% HOUSE; expect absolute bumpers and certified dancefloor gold from this fast-rising superstar. Fresh from smashing one of AVA Festival’s legendary Boiler Room slots, he’ll bring the same energy to Brighton next month. Next up, Slimzee heads to the Brighton basement for a raw, old-skool jungle set; an essential for any jungle fan. Find two icons with iconic record collections to match playing all night long in the Patterns basement the weekend after, Red Greg and Nick The Record. Set to be a special one, this is a Patterns debut for Red Greg – the East End record collector and edit master who has been a key part of the UK underground since the 80s.
Later in July Patterns teams up with Wheel It for another night of DnB vibes with Metalheadz’ Commix, and there’ll be a special Trans Pride takeover on 20th of the month in line with the Pride celebrations across Brighton later in the summer; magical. Finalising the July agenda is a Foundations and Tropicalé collab on the 26th with a DJ set from London Afrobeat Collective, and last but not least; Patterns invites mighty selector, producer and Mahogani Records signee Dan Shake to play in their intimate basement space on Saturday the 27th July.
August sees another set of discerning names heading to the South Coast each weekend. To start, Patterns team up with the most colourful, most fabulous party in the country – Brighton & Hove Pride for a serious weekend session where Horse Meat Disco, RAW SILK and more bring strictly good vibe through on the 2nd and 3rd. Normal service resumes the week after with Wheel It’s liquid DnB rave, and Parisian disco don Bellaire laying it down on the Saturday. At only 20 years old he’s made an impact with his house, disco and jazz tinged productions, plus killer DJ sets. Calling all garage heads, the one and only Wookie heads to the Patterns basement on the 16th; gun fingers at the ready as this true garage OG steps up for a ‘History of Garage’ session. Across the rest of the month there’s an acid special with acid house dons Posthuman, who’ll be hitting the club for the first time.
Hear nostalgic bleeps, beats and breaks with as this game-changing duo step up. OFF LICENSE and Foundations join forces for a night hosted by the forward-thinking culture mag. Kettama plays on 31st July, the Galway native who has been creating warm, infectious house jams perfect for the dancefloor.

Finalising the summer shows in September is another dreamy combination of talent from the electronic underground, plus a next level Freshers week line up for all of Brighton’s new faces and returning party heads. Each Friday will see bass, garage, jungle, hip-hop and grime explored by Foundations; inviting leading selectors as well as a heavy set of residents on rotation each week. A legend in the game, Joey Negro joins on 7th September. He’ll bring a record bag packed with nostalgic grooves and feel-good house, the night after IndiKa plays as part of the Foundations series. On the 14th, Materials hosts Jensen Interceptor & DEBONAIR for electronic oddities, left-leaning techno and plenty more. This is a Patterns first for Jensen too. Freshers week is going to be a major one for Patterns this year – a week long agenda packed out with parties, including DONUTS, Midnight Funk and a free Foundations jungle party.
