Our aim is simple. To bring more soundsystem culture to Glasgow.
Over the coming months we will be bringing you a string of parties showcasing some of the biggest and best names in Hip-Hop, Garage, Dubstep, Reggae and Drum & Bass, complimented by a host of local talent in room two.
We boast a resident 26kW wall of sound supplied by the mighty Electrikal Sound System.
We will have a fresh graffiti wall created live for each event with some of the best street artists from scotland.
ZED BIAS [ Swamp 81, Tru Thoughts ]
As a trailblazer of underground dance music, he is always moving with – or ahead of – the times and his productions grace the playlists of Radio 1 DJs Gilles Peterson and Mary Anne Hobbs, as well as making themselves at home in the record boxes of DJ/producers like Toddla T, Blame, Skream, Plastician, Oneman, Benga, Kode 9 and Martyn (who included new track ‘Lost on Tenori Street’ on his recent ‘Fabric 50’ mix).

LOEFAH [ Swamp 81, DMZ ]
Seen by many as one of the founding fathers of dubstep and innovators of the scene, we can’t even begin to describe his back catalogue, including some of the seminal releases of the last 10 years. Recently and perhaps most famously Loefah has re-invented himself and founded one of the hottest labels in the UK, Swamp 81. As if that wasn’t enough Loefah also holds down a regular Rinse FM slot.

GIRL UNIT [ Night Slugs ]
Girl Unit has proved to be well capable to kill dancefloors all over the globe with his well known and respected ‘WUT’ and ‘I.R.L.’ EP’s on Night Slugs.
Girl Unit aims to produce bass-heavy club tracks that serve to project his love for RnB/rap music and regional US. Club music styles.

PINCH [ Swamp 81, Tectonic ]
Celebrated for his fusion of Dub/Reggae, World Music and Dancehall with Dubstep, 2010 saw Pinch undertake the groundbreaking “SCIENTIST LAUNCHES DUBSTEP INTO OUTER SPACE” project which saw legendary Dub producer Scientist from Jamaica producing an albums worth of dub mixes for Techtonic. This culminated in a live tour of the UK with ‘The Upsetters’ mixed by Scientist and a whose who of the deeper dubstep world.
