Slam Boiler Room & Ballantine's Stay True Scotland Live Set

SLAM (aka Stuart McMillian & Orde Meikle) return to the small town club for another night of forward thinking techno. Always a busy and popular night, selling out every time.


Protagonists since the early days and always in the vanguard, forward-thinking techno producers Slam's recent 'Transmissions: Glasgow compilation showed a continued commitment to the future, this time centred around the talent of their home town and focusing on the burgeoning Techno scene which is so prominent in the city. Over the last 3 years the pair have also developed 'Slam Radio', delivering some of the best DJs and music that Techno has to offer to a massive and loyal weekly following, with a truly underground flavour.

SLAM instigated Glasgow's underground House music scene in the late 1980s, going on to be instrumental in the explosion of the UK Techno scene, and their quarter of a century of exploits have seen them travel far and wide, leaving scorch marks on dance floors everywhere while taking their uncompromising vision of Techno around the world. Closer to home, since 1997, SLAM have curated the 'Slam Tent' at Scotland's biggest festival 'T in the Park', with some of the world's best known DJs and live acts playing alongside underground ground breaking talent on their monumental stage.

SLAM have never been ones to rest on their musical laurels and they are constantly and consistently experimenting in the studio, working multitude of tracks, many of which have surfaced in recent times in the form of singles for labels like Figure, Drumcode and of course their own Soma Records and Paragraph imprints. When Soma reached its 400th single release, who better to provide the soundtrack, and with Soma reaching it's silver jubilee of 25 years in the game the duo who were instrumental in its formation will reach another pinnacle in a glittering ascent.
