SUBCULTURE

Subculture comes quality assured, but Harri & Domenic have secured a truly exceptional lineup for February. Starting this Saturday (6th), they’re joined by Swiss sensation, Deetron and his Character label mate, Ripperton, while on Sat 13th you’ll find man-of-the-moment, Denis Sulta, who after releases on DABJ and Numbers is fast becoming one of Glasgow’s hottest exports. Finally, Sat 27th sees Sub Club favourite, Midland, return to the booth for a night of finely-tuned house and rhythmic techno. (Saturdays throughout FebSub Club - £10 ADV)

SOMETHING WICKED PRES DMX CREW (LIVE)

With six albums on Aphex Twin’s Rephlex Records as well as a series of defining singles and EPs stretching back to the mid-90s, Ed Upton aka DMX Krew is considered a veteran and UK pioneer of electro-funk, breakbeat and acid. Performing a live set at this special showcase presented by Something Wicked, he’ll also be joined by fellow Rephlex artist, Monolith, and local favourites Twonko TFTV (Intergalactic Funk Smugglers) and Dave Shades (Horror Boogie Records, Banjax).

SUPERMAX PRESENTS A HISTORY OF DISCO

There’s only one night that can guarantee you disco satisfaction every month, and that’s Supermax. With long-serving resident, Billy Woods, guiding you through a history of disco this weekend, you’re likely to hear rarities, classics and future anthems, as he digs deep and produces dancefloor gold. With one of Glasgow’s finest selectors at the helm, coupled with The Berkeley Suite’s satisfyingly-seductive décor, Supermax is arguably the most authentic D.I.S.C.O experience the city has to offer. Arrive early. (Feb 6thBerkeley Suite - £8 OTD)

PURPLE LOVE VALENTINES WAREHOUSE PARTY

Returning for another dose of Prince-inspired Purple Love, three of Glasgow’s favourite club factions unite for the ultimate Saint Valentines schmooze. Transforming SWG3 into a decadent make-out mansion, Stay Fresh, Thunder Disco Club and Sub Rosa will be on hand with a mix of RnB, disco and ‘all-out sleaze’, ensuring the dancefloor stays hot and heavy all night-long. With a full warehouse to explore, you’re next squeeze might be just around the corner. (Feb 12thSWG3 - £8 ADV)

FREAKY FREAKY

After an explosive end to 2015 which saw them host a headline show from Hudson Mohawke, Freaky Freaky are taking it back to basics this month with a stripped-back party in the Art School’s intimate Vic Bar. Dishing out a dutty mix of rap, RnB and dancehall, they’ve invited BBC AZN Network from London’s Radar Radio to help lubricate the dancefloor. With Valentines arriving at midnight, it’s highly likely they’ll break out a few slow jamz too. (Feb 13thThe Art School - £8 ADV)

Cadbury’s may have a new Milk Tray man, but only one can deliver the aural delights we need on a Friday night. Lifting the lid on a selection box of creamy bass and luxurious beats, forward-thinking party collective and label, Astral Black, presents a night with four of Glasgow’s most ‘melt-in-your-mouth DJs’. Expect everything from UK Funky to ghetto club trax at this most indulgent of parties, delivered by DJ Milktray, DJ Thumping, Dressin Red and DJ Keoma. (Feb 19thThe Art School - £3/4/5 OTD)

LA CHEETAH PRESENTS JOY ORBISON (ALL NIGHT LONG)

Announcing a surprise face-lift to the club last month, along with a new website and logo, Glasgow’s most intimate rave-cave, La Cheetah, will pounce back into action after a short closure on Feb 26th, with a 5 hour set from the inimitable Joy Orbison. An extended set from one of the UK’s most on-point selectors has seen all advance tickets snapped up, but thankfully there’s a batch on the door, so don’t hang about. (Feb 26th - La Cheetah)

PRESSURE

Following SWG3’s game-changing expansion, no one has capitalised quite like Pressure. Utilising the multi-room complex to its full potential, this month sees Hotflush heavyweight, Scuba, joined by dubstep-don turned house and techno aficionado Skream in the warehouse, while Slam are joined by Berghain residents Marcel Fengler and Boris in the TV Studio. The Poetry Club, meanwhile, plays host to the deep, grooving sound of Laura Jones and local heroes, Silicone Soul. Belter. (Feb 26thSWG3 - £20 ADV)
