In just over 2 years Concrete Music has grown to become one of the south coast’s most respected underground dance & bass music brands.

Beginning as an illegal beach rave on a desolate part of the Portsmouth coast, the seven Portsmouth uni students then got together and began their weekly Tuesday night party at the then-named ‘The Kraken Wakes’.
The boys took advantage of the venue’s little used Funktion one sound system and from the get-go, filled a once baron pub with musically educated party goers. Eventually a small budget for bookings appeared which allowed Concrete to bring their first guest DJ to the night – Klose one , then an Urban Nerds resident.
The weekly night continued to grow ever popular when half a year later, the main dance floor was forced into the larger back room where the party continues today.


In this short time, the night has brought over 40 of the nations (if not the worlds) biggest DJ’s & producers to Portsmouth, has raised Hundreds of pounds for the ‘Help the Heroes’ & ‘Movember’ charities, been chosen as one of the top student nights in the UK by Mixmag, named ‘pick of the week‘ by The Guardian & has been publicly highly regarded by the likes of Eats Everything, Loefah, Justin Martin, Oneman, Shadow Child, Monki, Kry Wolf…

Concrete Music has now become more than just a weekly night, the brand has grown nationally & internationally with residencies at ‘Get satisfied‘ – Bournemouth, ‘Apogee Presents‘ – London and aboard the ‘Lost in Ibiza‘ boat parties – Ibiza.

2013 see’s the launch of their highly anticipated record label, ‘Concrete Music Records‘. Plus new residencies in Ibiza this summer! (watch this space)
