MISSING PERSONS CLUB W/ BEN SIMS

With a strong foothold at La Cheetah, Missing Persons Club is fast becoming a favourite for Glasgow’s techno hungry punters. Following a buzzing party with The Zenker Brothers last week, the announcement of their next guest, Ben Sims, has been met with obvious excitement. The techno veteran who presided over his own Theory Recordings for nearly 20 years and released his debut album ‘Smoke & Mirrors’ on Drumcode in 2011 is regarded as one of the genre’s key players. Seeing him play in such intimate confines will be a treat. (April 1stLa Cheetah - £14 ADV)

DON’T DROP BANK HOLIDAY SUNDAY W/ CULOE DE SONG

Bank Holidays provide the perfect excuse for a marathon party, so on the last weekend in March nomadic house and techno collective, Don’t Drop, have organised a ten hour get-together at popular South Side spot The Rum Shack. With a mighty team-sheet comprised of local DJ talent and an outdoor terrace to play with, the event will be headlined by prominent South African producer Culoe De Song, whose rhythmic brand of emotive, melodic house has seen him release three EPs on Innervisions.

MODE W/ ILLYUS & BARRIENTOS

Sunday sesh? Why not. On Feb 28th, local lads Illyus & Barrientos will play Mode at The Sanctuary, ensuring the week starts on a serious high note. Having caught the attention of Pete Tong with their breakout EP ‘Do Anything You Wanna’ on Glasgow Underground, the duo have since remixed the likes of MK and Purple Disco Machine, while recently making their debut on Coyu’s Suara imprint with new number ‘T.M.4.G’. Expect quality, energetic house all-night-long. (Feb 28thThe Sanctuary - £5/6 OTD)

STEREOTONE 1ST BIRTHDAY W/ BEN UFO

A perfect example of building from the ground up, Stereotone’s simple statement of ‘good music and good people’ has found them arriving at their first birthday with much to celebrate. With resident Wheelman surrounding himself with local talent (including Bleaker, Big Miz and Telfort), the focus is very much on low-cost and inclusive partying, with a music policy that takes in everything from house to grime. Announcing their surprise guest as Ben UFO, it's best to get down early and help blow out the candles. (Feb 11th - La Cheetah - £8 ADV)
