All Good presents MIDLAND
Friday 23rd March 2018

We are incredibly excited to announce our next guest who’s list of accolades and contribution to the dance music world are insane, Midland. Midland has been in the game for the past 9 years , with one of the most varied discography’s of any dj we’ve had the pleasure of hosting. At the moment his Regraded label is the go to label for a ‘sanctified’ club / disco banger.

Headway with LEON VYNEHALL (3 Hour set)
Friday 6th April 2018

Leon Vynehall has already proved himself to be that rare thing – an artist with his own agenda rather than a producer aping the sound of the day. To date his off kilter sounds have come in the form of EPs on labels like 3024, Rush Hour and Running Back, and have been carefully crafted things, layered with musicality whilst never straying too far from a infectious groove.

Headway 14th Birthday with Dr. RUBINSTEIN
Friday 4th May 2018

For our 14th Birthday (!), we're delighted to announce a DJ who's already smashed it at our sister night Missing Persons Club @ La Cheetah, Glasgow last May, and has since gone on to play Maximum Pressure @ SWG3 - Dr. Rubinstein! Marina Rubinstein loves to DJ, but even when she’s perched in the booth, weaving together an invigorating assortment of hypnotic acid, 90s rave and pumping techno, her mind is on the dancefloor.

GJ Promotions present CAST (Doors 7pm)
Saturday 2nd June 2018

Labelled ‘The Who of the 90s’, Noel Gallagher once described watching Cast play live as “a religious experience.” From playing bass in the legendary Northern band The La’s, John Power (guitar/vocals), Liam ‘Skin’ Tyson (lead guitar - also playing with Robert Plant) and Keith O’Neill (drums) are joined by former La's member Jay Lewis on bass. Cast reunited in 2012 with original producer John Leckie (Stone Roses, Radiohead, The Fall) to release a new album ‘Troubled Times’, their first studio album in over ten years.
