At last we got our man…and are very excited to announce A Night With... UK House hero CHRIS DUCKENFIELD! In 1989 Chris got his first residency and started to learn the art of making people
dance and putting records together ‘on the job’. Since then he has become recognized as one of the best and most talented exponents of the DJ art ever to have emerged out of the UK.
Mungo's Hi Fi is a sound system based in Glasgow, Scotland, which follows the original Jamaican sound system tradition. After working together as the Dub Dentists,
Tom Tattersall and Doug Paine founded the group in 2000, writing, recording, producing and performing their own brand of reggae and dub music, working in collaboration
with other artists and producers.
1994 saw Harri join forces with one of Glasgow’s most talented young DJs, Domenic Cappello. Together they created Subculture, the Sub’s
flagship weekly Saturday night. Over 20 years on, Subculture - with Harri and Domenic still at the helm, is the longest running weekly House night in the UK
and very possibly worldwide.
Well, what can we say. We have been wanting to get Dense & Pika up to our Book Club for a long time now, and we have finally done it. Their back catalgoue has been the soundtrack to many a
party for us, and if you've been to any Book Clubs before you will have danced to their music. We are very excited to have them play, and will be at the front dancing with the rest of you lot.
If we can show them half the enthusiasm and atmosphere as we had at the last chapter then they are in for a treat.
Headway and Reading Rooms Productions are excited to present Fabric resident Daniel Avery for an all night long set! That's right, he'll be playing from start to finish: 10:30pm - 3am!
Daniel Avery is on the crest of a wave at the moment, his unique brand of hypnotic and driving house & techno projected him to 32nd position in Resident Advisor’s DJs of 2014 poll.
Reading Rooms Productions and Phazed are happy to announce the welcome return of Dixon Avenue Basement Jams.
Following on from their Phazed debut in October, we couldn't wait to invite them back… And this time they are bringing rising star BIG MIZ along for the ride!
Support on the night comes from Phazed residents Correlate and Teddy Hannan
After an amazing run of sold out events this year, A Night With welcome back one of their favourite DJs, ANDREW WEATHERALL, to take us on yet another musical journey down the Reading Rooms.
Andrew is the original swaggering, moody DJ. A pop-star producer, bastion of the underground, one-time Balearic figure-head, electronic experimentalist and a peerless explorer of the
2016 promises to be one of the biggest years yet in the glittering career of the dynamic Glaswegian duo SLAM (aka Stuart McMillan & Orde Meikle).
As Slam's Soma label prepares to embark on the 25th year of it's epic journey, you only have to take one look at it's release schedule to understand why they have remained on the cutting
edge and firmly at the forefront of musical innovation.
Since 2002, the Reading Rooms has been at the forefront of the underground clubscene in Scotland. Housed inside a former public library, with an exposed brick, warehouse-style interior and furnished with original retro decor, the Reading Rooms is home to a tight collective of some of Dundee (and Scotland's) most exciting music promoters who present an eclectic and diverse range of late night party offerings.
With a weekly programme crossing many musical genres including electro, dubstep, reggae, funk and soul, techno to hip hop, rockabilly, dancehall and beyond, it all promises to keep this legendary venue at the forefront of the Scottish underground clubscene. To further enhance your clubbing experience, the Reading Rooms is also home to a top of the range D&B sound system.
