Sauchiehall Street perhaps isn’t the first place you’d consider for a night of electronic delight, but this Friday Sub Club resident and co-founder of iAM, Matthew Craig aka Kappa, kicks of a new party at ABC2 offering an eclectic and electric mix of house, disco, electro and funk. HI-DEF is for those who like to dance rather than stand about awkwardly, so if you’re not up for getting down, you might want to give it a swerve.
To get us pumped up, Kappa has recorded a special promo mix offering a taste of what to expect, delivering a 60 minute workout aimed squarely at the dancefloor. With leftfield gems from the likes of Retrograde and Butch, as well as universal classics from David Morales and Chemical Brothers, you get a fair idea of what we’re dealing with here: quality tunes and bawz-out fun.
Here's what Kappa had to say about his new residency and mix:
"I'm really excited to be playing at the 02ABC, a venue with a lot of historical significance and diverse music policy. For this mix, I've selected a lot of party tunes as I think it's important not to take things too seriously, and keep it light. After three weeks or so I fully expect the punters to be on board for four hours of Schranz-Trap, Psy-Deep-House, Angolan-Ornithological field recordings and Aqua-Spice, but in the mean time I hope you enjoy the selection of clubby belters."
