Rhythm Sister Club Night: This Saturday in Brighton.
Sat 18 November 2017 – 11PM – 4AM.
DJs: Mike Servito, DEBONAIR, Faro, Jess Farley, Liv Ayers, Daisha.
Rhythm Sister is a London & Bristol based DJ collective and community highlighting & supporting women & LGBTQ+, we’re excited to be teaming up with the collectives for their first foray into Brighton. As well as hosting and curating parties, the collective play out regularly and host a monthly show on Balamii Radio.
For their first party here at Patterns, we rubbed heads and decided on MIKE SERVITO and DEBONAIR as our chosen guests. Hailing from Detroit, now residing in Brooklyn NY, The Bunker resident Mike Servito has coined a solid following overseas. Coming from a special time-frame of US techno, house, and illegal raves, this dude has earned his stripes and we can’t wait to have him back at the venue.
On the night, we’re also pleased to be hosting a true tastemaker and one of the most excitingly eclectic selectors about, DEBONAIR. Debi hosts a bi-weekly show on NTS Radio, has recently guested at Chapter 10 and Panorama Bar, with upcoming shows at XOYO, Hope Works and Wire in Leeds for Midland’s UK ‘presents tour.
Rounding off the bill we have Patterns resident DJ Faro and Platform B radio host Daisha, with Liv Ayers and Jess Farley representing RS.
We will also be giving local artists the chance to DJ on the night, collecting submissions before the event, full details on that soon…
Jess Farley, who started the collective, had this to say:
‘I started Rhythm Sister as an idea one morning after a night out when I was chatting to a female friend who bought records, who said she wanted to learn to mix but was embarrassed but said she would feel comfortable if I or another female taught her. I kinda realised there lacked a community and space where women can hang out, share music and learn to DJ together so I started a group online (and it got 600 members in a day!) https://www.facebook.com/groups/862048497259054/‘
We run free Rhythm Sister ‘Mix Session’ DJ workshops giving female/LGBTQ+ DJs, aspiring DJs & anyone interested in music a chance to practice and learn the basics on a club soundystem. We’re running one before the Patterns night in Brighton.
We chose patterns in Brighton as they were really supportive of our project and really respect the work they do there, they always have on point bookings and Ive heard nothing but great things from people.
Our aim with RS is to make a difference to the scene, we’re a group of young women who have a passion for music, we DJ together, have a radio show, do events and want to inspire other females & LGBTQ+ (who are hugely under represented in Dance Music) to do the same. We also run a community project along side our music stuff. We have a big online community, run panels & free workshops to teach people how to DJ & produce.
Alongside the main club event, the RS crew will be a putting on a daytime workshop, helping those who want to learn how to DJ and produce, giving access in a safe and inclusive environment.
