Soul Damn Funky’s 4th Birthday w/ SEAN MCCABE

Sean McCabe

With UK soulful house legend…


Another year has passed so quickly and here we are again getting ready to celebrate the forth year of Soul Damn Funky.

We’ve had some of the biggest names in house music grace the Soul Damn Funky decks since we started in 2009 and that trend continues with non other than Sean McCabe.

For those of you who don’t know the name, Sean McCabe is now one of the leading UK soulful house DJ/ producers and having remixed for the likes of: Todd Terry, Barbara Tucker, Dennis Ferrer, Joey Negro and Quentin Harris you can see why!

Bristol-based producer Sean McCabe has had plenty of time to develop his own sound. Famously, he created his first tracks at the tender age of 17. Now 28, he’s spent the last 11 years fine-tuning a trademark sound that is effortlessly soulful.

Sean made his name in soulful house, developing a long-running relationship with legendary US garage label King Street Sounds. Since then, he’s amassed an impressive discography, delivering inspired reworks for labels like Local Talk, Z Records, Strictly Rhythm, Room Control, Tribe, and Quantize.

A quick listen to any of his productions or one of his superb DJ sets will confirm this attractive, emotion-rich aesthetic. While rooted in house, his sound regularly takes on flavours of disco, boogie, Afro, deeper grooves, proto-house, ‘80s garage-house dubs and much more besides.

As a DJ, he has forged a reputation at the legendary Southport Weekender, where he has performed regularly. Anyone who can impress the notoriously knowledgeable Southport Weekender crowd must be doing something right.

Sean has traveled the world as a DJ, playing as far afield as Asia and the United States, as well as regular appearances in Europe and the UK. Refreshingly, he seems to have no particular aspirations to play in gargantuan clubs, and admits to preferring gigs in small, intimate venues, where he can make a connection with the crowd.

Also on the night we have Soul Damn Funky residents Curly Deb, The Analysir, Kevin Fernando and Russell Ruckman.


Located in Brighton’s beautiful theatre district, away from the madness of West & East Street, tucked away by the entrance to the Royal Pavilion, this intimate basement club with a “Turbosound” sound system, lights and lasers and a very professional and friendly team of staff.

The venue is also conveniently just five minutes from Brighton’s mainline train station, all of the busses stop here and there is a taxi rank just over the road.


We had good numbers through the door at our last event plus lots of new faces all saying they will come again, but as this venue is smaller than the last one demand for tickets will be high, but on the plus side this means everyone who’s there will be there for the music, and when you go out for the music you want to be around like minded people.

The capacity is 150 but so its not uncomfortable we are only selling 120 tickets.

Party kicks off at 10pm and rolls through till 4am

OSMusic // Dennis Ferrer / DJ QU / Rick Wade / jozif


Oval Space Music brings you a quality deep house line-up with DJs and producers from across the pond, featuring guests Dennis Ferrer, DJ QU and Rick Wade. Our resident jozif couldn’t be better placed to complete this line up. With a record collection strewn with elegant house music, jozif’s driving house sets are set to become a staple at Oval Space.

Tickets available from Oval Space: and Resident Advisor:

Crafting house and techno music since the 90’s, Dennis Ferrer is a prolific character in the international electronic music scene. With a solid knowledge of the past and an insatiable hunger for the sounds of the future, Ferrer has worked and played with the best in the industry. From his original techno productions with Jerome Sydenham on Ibadan, to his gospel house sounds on Defected or his dance floor house anthems on King Street Sounds, Dennis’ multi-faceted DJing and producing have ensured a consistently high level of success and recognition over the last 20 years.

In Todd L Burn’s 2009 piece about the revival of New York City house music and Jus Ed’s Underground Quality label, DJ Qu – amongst contemporaries such as Levon Vincent and Black Jazz Consortium – featured heavily, kick starting our interest in him and his deep grooves. The self-proclaimed “Dancers’ DJ” (Qu was originally a dancer and instructor before concentrating solely on DJ’ing and production) favours the crowd above all else and is sure to please with his selection irresistible rhythms with New York roots.

Deep house stalwart Rick Wade’s sounds are present throughout what can only be described as a range of truly elegant record labels. Laid, Soulstar, Landed, Holic and Housewax are just a selection of labels where Rick Wade’s outstanding contributions to music can be heard. With an impressive eighty releases under his belt, Rick Wade takes our USA house-led line up to another level.
