BN is best described as an attitude-free party where real men meet to socialise and dance! A relaxed atmosphere where guys come to enjoy high quality music by our main DJ’s and international guests, coming from both the main circuit as from the underground scene. The BN-sound is progressive and sophisticated with an emphasis on quality tracks rather than obvious floorfillers or hits.
