Donky Pitch began in Brighton in the summer of 2009, born out of two peoples’ frustration with the local club scene and coinciding with the rise of synth heavy dancefloor mutations within underground electronic music. At first just a midweek party in a small club below a pub, over the years that followed it has branched out to be a record label and a monthly radio show on Sub FM
The label kicked off in 2010 with a split release drawing from two of the party’s residents, Slugabed and Ghost Mutt, and has since released records by Nino, V.C. , 813, The Range, Keyboard Kid and ARP 101 x Elliott Yorke as well as a free three part EP series focusing on local producers. 2014 will see releases from Lockah (including his debut album), The Range, Vespertown and Tokyo Hands.
Sticking true to their roots, Donky Pitch continue to promote club nights and have hosted the Brighton debuts for Debruit, Mweslee, Shlohmo, Salva, Alexander Nut, ARP 101,Blue Daisy, Lapalux and Tokimonsta, as well as giving local producers and DJs a platform to perform. On top of their love for synth and bass music, they are the UK’s premier exponent of Skweee; hosting not only the UK premier of the ‘We Call it Skweee’ documentary but also the UK’s first ever Skweee showcase in March 2011.
Now taking their sound to cities around Europe, including a showcases at Glade Festival, Secret Garden party and on Boiler Room, Donky Pitch show no sign of slowing down into 2014 and beyond.
