DEKMANTEL PRESENTED BY SUB CLUB W/ MARCELLUS PITTMAN

Amsterdam’s Dekmantel: record label, events company and perhaps most notably, one of the world’s finest house and techno festivals. This Thursday Dekmantel join forces with Sub Club to present Marcellus Pittman, a Detroit veteran and one quarter of legendary production team Three Chairs (alongside Rick Wilhite, Kenny Dixon, Jr. and Theo Parrish). His mix for XLR8R was described as “the deepest, most soulful DJ session in the history of the series.” Pittman will dig deep, and Pitmann will produce. (Facebook Event / Tickets)

LA CHEETAH CLUB X EZUP PRES JEREMY UNDERGROUND

Hooking up with Ezup to present Jeremy Underground - the main man behind essential Parisian label ‘My Love Is Underground’ and a fanatical record collector and true advocate of deep, groove-driven house - this is a night where you’ll find a spot on the dancefloor and stay there.

SATURDAY

RUMOURS 5TH BIRTHDAY BASH

Rumours have been promoting bassy, weighty parties in Glasgow for five years now, while also holding down a show on Subcity Radio which takes in everything from hip hop to house, garage to grime. This Saturday they invite members of fellow Glasgow crews Kunst, Offbeat and Handpicked to help celebrate at Flat 0/1, in what will likely be an impressive display of raw, raucous talent. Add a 15,000 watt soundsystem and a steady supply of 20/20 to the equation and this could well get out of hand. (Facebook Event / Free Entry)

LOVE ACTION PRESENTS MK

While the old guard may make disgruntled noises when you mention the second coming of MK, no one can deny that he’s back at the top of his game, becoming an icon for a new generation of house fans. Fresh from playing at Miami’s mammoth Ultra Music Festival, he’ll be returning to SWG3 this Saturday where he’ll be joined by 'Pushing On' heavyweight Oliver Dollar. Expect sing-along anthems such as ‘Look Right Through’, ‘My Head Is A Jungle’ and new MK single ‘Piece Of Me’ to take centre stage. (Facebook Event / Tickets)

SUNDAY

ON THE HOUSE // EASTER SERVICE

There’s nothing like an all-day Sunday sesh to validate your bank holiday bender, and On The House may well lay claim to the biggest bruiser of the weekend. Descending on Queen St’s ping pong emporium, Proud Mary, you can expect some 30 DJs of Glasgow's great and good to guide you through afternoon, evening and night, providing quality house over four areas (including an outdoor terrace, ‘rave in the cage’ and ‘sunken dancefloor’). There’s even an afterhours included in the ticket price, so don’t peak too early. (Facebook Event / Tickets)

Dont Drop will be throwing their own all-day party there on Sunday with the help of Berlin-based producer Youandewan, whose brand of deep, emotive and jacking house has seen him release three EPs on Aus Music.
