Snapshot...

Dark Daze is at it again. The Brighton based photography company have a fresh as fuck Exhibition starting this weekend by photographer Kevin Mason.

The show is called Writers One, and it's being held in the North Laine photo gallery above Snoopers Paradise. The show features portraits of 10 of Brighton's most notorious Graff writers, and there's a neat twist in the tail, as Kevin has taken the photo's, blown them up, and given them back to the artists to customise..

Dark Daze earned the gallery space by reaching the finals of the Brighton photography competition, and they've come up with a nice original idea, one that combines Graffiti and Photography i na pretty unique way.. should be well worth a look.

The launch is this Saturday from 10 am till 5pm, and the show is running for the whole of April, at the North Laines photo gallery, above Snoopers Paradise on Kensington Gardens. Don't Sleep!

you can also catch a glimpse of some of Dark Daze's other work right here at brightonhiphop.com, in the gallery section of the site

This Friday

Here's a quick heads up on a couple of shin-digs coming your way on Friday night.

First up we've got Comix Trix at B'lo on West Street, still holding it down on the first Friday of every month.

April's line-up is an all Brighton affair with Nick Maxwell from the Menagerie and Nine Bob of Pacman fame on the wheels of veal alongside Comix Trix resident dj Tonic Nonsense

The Comix Trix team generally get the joint jumping with a dancefloor friendly mix of hip hop, R&B and funk, so make sure you break out ya dancing shoes for this one.

Entry is £3 before 11, £5 after. From 10 pm at B'lo, with Dancing Bear and Synaptic dj'ing in the bar upstairs from 8pm

And if that's not your cup of tea, then it might be worth checking out the Ocean Rooms, who also have a hip hop show on this Friday.

DJ Rubbish is heading up the bill, accompanied by Barry Evans from Barry's Bootlegs on Microphone duties.

They get Props over here for having an MC named after Eastenders loser, Barry 'son of Roy' Evans, and these fellas, along with the likes of Brighton's own Cassette Boy are at the forefront of the crazy vocal-sample-tv-theme tune-10 second-mash-up bootleg. If you've heard the style you'll know what I mean.

Also playing on the night will be a host of local dj's including Roo, As If, Blood One, The Great Dane, Grey Matter, Fidel Cutstro, TGK and Homeslice. Not sure how all of them are gonna have time to spin, but there you go....

Entry is £7.50/£6, from 10pm at the Ocean Rooms.

Over the last eighteen months Fractured Films have been gathering footage of Brighton hip hop in it's various forms in preparation for a full length documentary to be premiered at this years hip hop festival. This will be pretty much the last bit of filming for the documentary, so all you rappers out there come prepared and get involved.

More glitches in the all-seeing I that is brightonhiphop.com, as the big dog Tim Westwood is playing in town tommorrow night, and we've only just found out.

We don't actually have much info on this, other than it's on tommorrow at 10pm at the Bounce at the Brighton Gloucester, with Monoxide Dj Outbreak providing hometown support.

Seeing as it's bank holiday it should be a busy session,although you should be able to get in on the door. BOOM.

Coming Up...

The Brighton institution that is Knowledge of Self returns this week, with a bumper charity fundraiser on Thursady night down at B'lo on West Street.

They've assembled a monster line-up for this one, with a whole host of local talent on the bill. The full run down goes a little something like this... (deep breath)

Nonconformists, Devise, Koaste, Remark, Branch 2, Real D, Amatuer Dramatics, Iye 95, Shelley Mack, The Tipster, Req, Fresh Worms, Viscious Circle, Ill Technicians, Surgical Cuts and Russ Rockwell.

Tax is £3 before 11, and £4 after, and it's all for a good cause, so you've got no excuse! from 10pm on Thursday, at B'lo (formerly the Joint)

hen the night after on Friday, UK hero Blak Twang makes another Brighton appearance, this time at Soundsystem at the Brighton Gloucester.

Soundsystem has just started it's new regular Friday night residency at the Gloucester after a clutch of shows at vaious other venues in town, and Dj's on the night will be Tom Proper from Beatdown and Rare Kind's Odzilla, with Koaste from the Menagerie hosting.

Twang's new LP 'The Rotton Club' just dropped, and he has a reputation as one of this country's finest live performers, so I'd expect this one to be packed out. There's cheap drinks all night, and the first 200 people throught the door get in for a very reasonable £4 as well, so an early arrival is probably not a bad idea either. From 10pm.

And if Blak Twang's not your cup of tea, the Ocean Rooms also have a hip hop show lined up for this Friday. Grand Central's Riton will be playing the main room, with a whole host of local talent supporting. Brighton crew Plan B will be performing a live p.a. in Room 2, with DJ's Kodak, Race, The Great Dane, Fidel Cutstro and Beardyman on the wheels of steel.

We havn't goit exact prices for htis show, but expect it to be somewhere in the £5/£6 region.

This Week

There's a couple of nice shows going off in town this Friday.

First up it's the last installment of Legwork Presents/Social Skills upstairs at the Albert pub on Traflagar Street.

The live P.A. this month comes form none other than the Dirty Diggers crew, currently making noise with their excellent 'Diggers don't get Days Off' EP on Brighton's own Zebra Traffic records.

MC's Young Max and Pat Stash will be stepping up for a rare Brighotn appearance with turntable support from DJ Bluey Craft and Zebra traffic's head honcho Simpson.

After 12 months of packing out the Albert with a motley crew of Brighton hip hoppers, the Social Skills team are moving onto pastures new, so this should be another roadblock session for the final chapter.From 8 till 11 at the Albert. Free entry all night.

Also this Friday Skinnyman, Klashnekoff and Digi Tek are live at Concorde 2 for the first in a new team-up between Red Hot magazine and Slam Dub Brighton.

RedHot are best known for their Drum and Bass nights, although they have been involved in a fair few hip hop promotions, and Slam Dub are the peeps behind the dope Brighton t-shirts that have been doing the rounds.. you can check out there website at slamdub.com for more info..

It's a sure-shot line up for the first night. Skinny's 'Council Estate of Mind' Lp on lowlife has clocked up some impressive sales figures, and tere's some serious rumours going round that Klashnekoff has just signed a major-label deal, so it's fair to say that these are two of the countries hottest artists right now.

And it's good to see some local talent on the bill in the form of Digi Tek too. Any one who's seen the Tek's live show knows they wreck the set...

From 10pm at Concorde 2. DJ's on the night will be Blood One and As If from Surgical Cuts, DJ Flip and Iye-95, and tickets are £8.50, more on the door.

To everyone who submitted tracks for the next update, your tunes will be put up as soon as we get a few technical glitches sorted out.
