MUNGO'S HI FI SOUND SYSTEM
Friday 16th September 2016


Mungo’s was the brainchild of two likeminded dance DJs at the turn of the millennium, inspired by King Tubby, Prince Jammy and the UK’s Unity Sounds. True to reggae/dancehall’s DIY ethos, they built their first sound system from speakers found in a skip and began producing on an old Atari. More info/videos/music

All Good All Day with JACKMASTER (Numbers)
Sunday 25th September 2016


For our first All Good All Day party we thought we'd make it a real sesh, and what sesh is complete without Glasgows main party starter, JACKMASTER. Just coming off the back of a choca block summer season, and the release of his latest addition to the DJ-kicks series there are no signs of jack letting up in the slightest. More info/videos/music

ALEXANDER NUT (Eglo Records / NTS Radio)
Friday 30th September 2016


Alexander Nut runs one of the more idiosyncratic outfits on the UK dance music landscape: Eglo Records. The man born Alex Rogers counts singular talents like Floating Points, Fatima and Funkineven as part of his core roster. And while his renowned label—which recently celebrated its fifth anniversary—showcases his strong curatorial voice, he's also an excellent DJ.

EROL ALKAN
Saturday 22nd October 2016


Erol Alkan has lived many different guises so far; DJ, remixer, label founder, club promoter, radio host, and each with great success. Keen to keep moving forwards, what, one might wonder, allows Alkan to remain such a vital figure in contemporary music, both in the DJ booth, in the studio and beyond?

MR SCRUFF
Saturday 19th November 2016


As a DJ, Andy Carthy aka Mr. Scruff plays across the board, flitting between soul, funk, hip hop, jazz, reggae, latin, african, ska, disco, house, funk, breaks, soundtracks and loads more...
