To say Slam are in the middle of a prolific year would be an understatement. Not only are the duo celebrating 25 years of Soma Records, one of the world’s most influential techno labels and a Glasgow institution; they’ve also just announced their sixth studio album ‘Machine Cut Noise’ which follows a series of ‘slamming’ singles as part of their Soma Track Series. To see them at the helm of the newly renovated Sub Club all night long this Friday will be dark and sweaty treat.
After a sensational night with Vancouver’s Bluntman Deejay back in March, Bake and Ryan All Caps continue their love affair with Canada by inviting fellow Mood Hut duo Pender Street Steppers to play their occasional but essential party, ‘Region Free’, at The Art School. PSS have released a handful of deep, organic house cuts on Mood Hut, while their mix for Boiler Room (stream below) visited delicate ambience, upbeat disco and sensual grooves in the space of 45mins.
Blowing out the candles on two years of excessively fun, all-inclusive partying this Saturday, We Should Hang Out More have invited Aussie wonder, Dr Packer, to do the honours. Disco aficionados will already be well aware of Packer’s prowess, but for the unacquainted, his super-sweet ‘Sugary Edits’ have delivered delicious takes on everyone from The Whispers to Cherelle, breathing new life into classics and obscurities alike. If you’re a fan of Late Nite Tuff Guy or The Reflex, this night is for you.
SUNDAY: Fenix Presents DJ Sprinkles
The musically conscious and politically motivated DJ Sprinkles has acquired an almost cult status. From being recognised with an 'underground grammy' for Best DJ in 91’ to winning RA’s Best Album of 2009 for exquisite deep house exploration, ‘Midtown 120 Blues', Sprinkles’ career has been colourful and purposeful. Expect to be taken on a true dancefloor journey when Sprinkles joins Fenix for a highly anticipated set at The Berkeley Suite this Sunday.
