It gives us great pleasure to present our new mix series ‘Inner City Sounds’, showcasing house and techno from some of Glasgow’s most exciting producers. Continuing the theme of our monthly radio show, you can expect to hear music from talent both established and new, giving an insight into the city’s clubs, afterparties and bedroom studios. Although the intention is to focus on house and techno, we may divert to other sounds on occasion as Glasgow is a city which has become known for more than the 4x4.

The first edition, mixed by SynthGlasgow editor Alex Caslano, reflects on 2015 so far with choice cuts from some of the year’s biggest and equally, overlooked releases:

“It was impossible to include all the music I wanted to in this mix - there’s new talent emerging all the time in Glasgow which means this is only a snapshot of the city’s output as a whole. Having said that, you’ll find many of my favourite Glaswegian artists represented here, from the analogue house of Debukas and The Nuclear Family to the hypnotic sound of Petrichor and Sei A – not forgetting fresh talent like Denis Sulta and Jasper James. I also tried to capture the essence of Glasgow, so those who are familiar with the city will recognise the field recordings which bookend the mix, taking you underground on a very Glaswegian journey.” – Alex Caslano
