As anyone who’s been a frequent reader of FKOF will know, we’ve long been supporters of what The Mine are doing for the dubstep sound down in Brighton. I’ve been fans of what Duku and the team are doing since meeting the DJ and promoter during my Lithuanian dubstep adventure. Their next dance, this coming weekend, is yet another testament as to why we love what The Mine does…
FKOF fam Thelem and Syte are – as far as we can tell – frequent collaborators with The Mine. They’ve both played Volks before – but given both DJs’ selection, mixing expertise and favour with the fans it’s a pleasant surprise to see them returning to put the system through its paces. Donga, Capture, Duku and Sibla, The Mine’s resident DJs are joined by special guests the Dub Drifters – rising stars Foamplate (who’s just signed a release with our good friend Sleeper) and Lungman.
There’s a whole host of artists looking after the basement vibes, and as usual, Gweni MC and Geniq are on hosting duties and the visuals are being handled by the hugely capable Irie Pixel in the main room.
Irie Pixel have also recently smashed out a truly superb new website for The Mine family. Duku hit me up and suggested I take a look – and damn, did the Irie team really do themselves proud. Check out a few screenshots below and head over to The Mine’s site and have a look around yourselves.
Peace, love and respect.
