HANNAH WANTS + JESS BAYS + BRAD LESSUR – PATTERNS, BRIGHTON 16.03.19
By the time we got in, the tunes were pumpin and the crowd was getting mesmerised by Brad Lessur who was warming up proceedings with his housey techno tunes. The hard beats kept coming till there was a subtle change to the night a more funky vibe, fog horn type siren with almost a JAWS like theme tune and you knew it was Hannah Wants!
Not just musically, but the atmosphere changed. The dancefloor was rammed. It was hard to push to the front to take a decent picture! (I normally like to appreciate from the back).
Throughout Hannah’s set, she kept throwing in some classics into da mix. Hypnotising her audience on a journey from deep funky start to a trancy ‘It’s A Fine Day’ mixed in acid house with a strong dark flavour, yum! ‘I’m Sorry’ from Monster Boy was thrown in there with a hard bass. Then teasing me with DnB, ‘Professional Widow’ mixed with bold hint of jungle, boom! All inda name of House.
Finishing her three hour set, she handed the reins over to Jess Bays. OMG! The night ain’t over, there were more delicious delights to indulge in. Bringing in a more soulful garage deep bass house. With ‘Fly Life’ and ‘Dub (Just) Be Good To Me’, kept the energy level up. The crowd was lovin it and kept going till the end.
Had a cracking night thanks Hannah, Brad, Jess and Patterns!
