Coast | Worthing, EN

As part of our ongoing mission to bring underground Techno to Worthing, together with unique and carefully curated guest dj’s, Worthing Techno Militia are hyped to bring you a night of sonic mayhem with Josey Rebelle.
For those that need to know, Josey is a DJ from London, described as “the genre-bending DJ dominating top-tier dancefloors worldwide” (Mixmag) and “a hero of the UK music scene” (The Face).
With accolades and awards including DJ Mag’s 100 of the World’s Best DJs 2022 list, BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix of the Year 2019, DJ Mag Best of British Award for Best Compilation 2020, Resident Advisor Mix of the Year 2020, a coveted DJ Mag cover and regular appearances on annual ‘Best Of’ lists for her DJ sets, mixes and radio shows, the London born-and-bred DJ seamlessly traverses genres with a fearless energy that evokes the spirit of her home city.
Raised in a Caribbean culture of dancers, DJs and sound system operators, Josey was introduced to the decks at an early age, taught to mix by her brother on his house, techno and jungle collection when she was 13. But it was some years - and countless hours of practice - later that she gained the confidence to graduate from bedroom DJ to the booth of the club, eventually earning her stripes as a resident at legendary London basement club Plastic People as well as decade-long host of a weekly show on pioneering London radio station Rinse FM.
As well as playing mesmerising sets at the world’s most iconic clubs and festivals, drawing in fans everywhere from hazy festival stages to the main floor of Berghain, Josey has also recorded highly-acclaimed mixes for BBC Radio 1, The Trilogy Tapes, Resident Advisor, The Face and Fader magazine. She appeared on the first official Boiler Room broadcast in 2010 and made the cover of DJ Mag in February 2020.
2020 also marked the release of her first ever compilation album, Josey in Space, released on Beats in Space Records and featuring a trove of exclusives and previously vinyl-only secret weapons taken from the depths of her cherished record collection. Josey In Space was crowned Best Compilation at the DJ Mag Best of British Awards 2020 and Resident Advisor’s Mix of the Year. Josey’s limited edition cassette tape mix for The Trilogy Tapes, released in 2021 as a meticulously-crafted ode to her teenage years, was described by Pitchfork magazine as the year’s “most faithful evocation of a vintage UK pirate-radio broadcast”.
“Josey Rebelle is a rarity,” The New Yorker stated. “A name DJ whose name comes not from producing (she doesn’t) but strictly from her work on the decks”. With no social media presence, Josey has worked hard over the years to build a reputation based on selection, passion and authenticity, to separate herself from the noise and arrive at a place where nothing more is required than the thing she loves most: to step into the darkness of the DJ booth and play.
We recently heard Josey play a warm-up set for the mighty Dopplereffekt at a show celebrating Drexcyian mythology at the British Library, were blown away and decided that we had to invite her to come down & play with us..
Supporting Josey will be the usual all vinyl Techno and adjacent genre assault from Worthing's own Techno Militia crew and, following the fantastic feedback from our last party, we bring back DJ Bunnyhausen (Xylitol, Planet Mu) on early doors warm up duty, who impressed with a truly deep bleep and acid filled selection last time round.
Don't miss what will undoubtedly be another high point in Worthing's blossoming underground music scene and a general kick ass party.
