Brighton Clubbing Survey – Results So Far

Written by Michael

We’ve had about 120 responses so far, but the survey is still open so if you wish to take part, head over to http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/7TLXSB7. Remember to check out our Privacy Policy before continuing. Anyway – the results so far have shed an interesting light on the scene in Brighton. Digital and Audio are overwhelmingly Brightons favourite clubs, with each club getting a vote from 80% of people. Brighton Clubbers seem satisfied with their experience too, giving the scene down here a 4 out of 5 stars.

Anti-Social behaviour is the number one issue facing clubbers in Brighton, whilst 80% of those who took part would like to see a greater variety of music. 20% are calling for a Trance night. Some of the comments we got were:

“I think there should definitely be more larger clubs in brighton aswell as more varied nights such as hip hop nights. Also some should stay open abit longer, maybe till 5 or 6.”

“I want to see better DJs. Ive had enough of listening to just shitty pop and “retro”.”

There definitely was a time when Brighton attracted some of the worlds best talent. Even as recently as 2008, every single week was punctuated with talent. Just a quick look shows us that in the next three weeks we can look forward to Joey Negro at Digital, Timo Maas and Sebastien Leger. Certainly not bad acts, but unless you have a specific interest in one of them it’s not likely to get you pumped up in the same way that Deadmau5, Oakenfold, Carl Cox, Tiesto etc is likely to. Sure, Carl Cox is playing at Audio in the next couple of weeks, but it is a largely private affair with probably less than 100 tickets available to the public, and these were gone in a couple of hours.

HIIO Feat. Terri B! – Something About You

February 28, 2013

South American duo HIIO (pronounced H2O) have arrived in 2013 with their attempt at creating a classic house tune. There’s definitely some classic house vibes here in the synths, the Planet Perfecto influence is pretty obvious. But this track is much slower than anything Planet Perfecto ever put out, and as a result it’s not… View Article

Arty, Nadia Ali & BT – Must Be The Love (Official Music Video)

February 24, 2013

BT is a legend of Trance production, Nadia Ali is a legend of Trance vocals. Any team up between these two is bound to be good, but when you throw in relative newcomer but excellent producer Arty into the mix as well, are we witnessing collaborative genius or are too many cooks spoiling the broth?… View Article

Kirsty – Hands High (Afrojack Radio Edit)

Who is Kirsty? We don’t know either, but this looks like her attempt to crack the commercial dance scene and she’s enlisted the help of Afrojack who provides remix duties. Apparently Sander Van Doorn said “supporting!” and David Guetta said “huge!” Although we’d question how much thought they gave to their answers when questioned. The… View Article
