We’re all in agreement, Sub Club’s city centre venture, Sub Hub, has been a huge success. Running throughout April in a studio loft above Buchanan St, the pop-up hangout has hosted some of dance music’s most prolific artists as well as the revered local talent who make Glasgow great. Production courses, film screenings and parties, meanwhile, have made it a real creative and social hotspot.
With just over a week left, Sub Hub have revealed some of the events planned before they shut up shop. Highlights include ‘In Conversation With Jazzy Jeff’ (Apr 23rd), with the legendary DJ discussing his life and work, from winning the world DJ competition to appearing in the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. This will cluminate a day of hip hop at Sub Hub with a full schedule to be released shortly.
This Saturday (18th) is Record Store Day and Sub Hub plan to celebrate with a fully licensed record fayre boasting dozens of vendors and exclusive DJ sets, while in the evening Berlin producer and Subculture favourite Henrik Schwarz presents his new live set-up & talks production.
This Friday (17th) sees one of house music’s most enduring and successful figures, Roger Sanchez aka S-Man, in conversation with Graeme Park. From hustling in the late 80s, selling his mixtapes on Broadway, to rise to the top and headlining main stages around the world, the discussion will be a fascinating insight into a career spanning over 20 years.
Tonight (16th) is all about Glasgow's resident soundsystem, Mungo’s Hi Fi, who will be presenting a night of reggae and dub with Stalawa Sound, a film screening of ‘The Upsetter: The Life & Music Of Lee Scratch Perry’ and an exclusive live conversation with the Mungo’s crew.
All Sub Hub events are free but require an email reservation via Facebook (click the relevant links above). Check Sub Hub’s Facebook page for more information. The Sub Hub café/bar is open throughout the day with food provided by Devils Deli and No Way Back.
