Laurence Tonkyn

I DJ under the name Mystery Selector, specialising in multi-genre mysterious sounds. I also organise and promote an event called ‘Textured Silence’. The articles I write for Brighton Source mainly focus on electronic music and clubbing culture although my musical taste is more diverse.
