In celebration of their 5th Birthday, Unleash are hosting a party with a line up to die for. Inviting some of the electronic music scene’s biggest and most respected artists starting with Petre Inspirescu. One of the founders of Arpiar together with friends Raresh and Rhadoo, Pedro will be playing an extended set for the occasion.
On a similar level, ToFu Productions aka Thomas Melchior and Fumiya Tanaka will also be playing a longer b2b set for everyone’s satisfaction. Both being part of the well known Perlon label with a few releases each on the imprints as well as many others on labels such as Sundance, Minibar and Half Baked.
Next on the bill is another Perlon pioneer, Baby Ford who needs no introduction knowing he has been in the music scene for over 20 years and is the proud owner of two incredibly well established labels, Trelik and PAL SL where he has been releasing music since the 90’s.
Alongside these four legends you will also find French Bass Culture label founder D'julz who also has been in the game for two decades. Whether it’s through his productions, radio shows, compilations, parties or club sets, D’Julz has been at the forefront of electronic music since his career first began back in 1992. A firm DJ and fan favorite alike, his ability to transcend genres and trends has seen him hold one of the most consistent levels of success of any modern-day DJ/Producer.
Speaking of Dj/Producers, the next duo featuring on the line-up also have been producing music for over 20 years under the alias Cab Drivers. With their first release coming out in 1994 on their imprint Cabinet Records, they have since grown in popularity and released on labels such as Djebali, One records and Daniel Bell’s 7th City.

Brighton is a place which loves to celebrate equality and diversity, and this is never clearer than at its amazing Pride, which supports not only having a great time but also fundraising for local charities and good causes. Brighton is generally an accepting place, but of course there are still homophobic and transphobic attacks and pride is not only a selection of fun events but also promotes awareness and tolerance.
There are a variety of big events to suit everyone this pride, for example the parade, the village festival, the dog show, the diversity games and of course all the official parties and after parties. These events are set to feature some amazing artists, including the legendary Sister Sledge, Carly Rae Jepsen, DJ Fresh, Fleur East, Alesha Dixon and many more.
