All Good presents: THEO KOTTIS
Saturday 2nd September 2017


Here we go, the 2nd half of the year, and what we've got in store is doss. To kick things off we have mr Theo Kottis. Scotlands very own Mr worldwide, having just got off a North American tour, playing every club in the UK worth it's salt and a stint of gigs in India too. Theo has been grafting for years, originally from Edinburgh honing his craft as resident of Fly club. His first releases on Moda Black garnered heaps of attention from big names including Solomun, Skream as well as the big man himself Pete Tong.

Reckless Kettle Presents: TAMA SUMO
Friday 8th September 2017


Reckless Kettle are extremely proud to be bringing one of their favourite DJs to Dundee all the way from Berlin...TAMA SUMO. Heart, emotion and passion instead of pure functionality – these are Tama Sumo's DJ characteristics in a nutshell. She started out in 1993 at Drama bar in Berlin / Kreuzberg, one of the first bars to ever feature its own DJ at the weekend and an important hang out for the scene before going to the clubs.

BE CHARLOTTE (Doors 7pm)
Tuesday 24th October 2017


Be Charlotte is all about the damn good vibes.
TenementTV: She manages to capture the essence of modern day catchy pop yet is the furthest thing from frivolous or throwaway.
TheSkinny: The pastel haired, bespectacled Dundee teenager is a delightful breath of fresh air carving out soulful moments and never wavers in her momentum.
