Azari & III bring their live show to the Arches, Glasgow with support from L-Vis 1990 (with Javeon McCarthy, aka Shadz) and Visions Of Trees.
Encapsulating the throbbing pulse of a European city after dark in deepest summer, Azari & III know how to mix detroit techno with soul and electro with funk, channelling the spirit of a baggy 90s rave with the faux-glamour of a cheap New York disco club to create what looks set to be one of the key sounds of this summer.
Comprising producers Alphonse Alixander Lanza III and Dinamo Azari, the duo have become most well known for their tracks featuring guest vocalists Starving Yet Full (SYF) and Fritz Helder, whose dynamic presence has been electrifying live shows from Death Disco in June to the Lovebox festival this summer.
Having released a clutch of 12-inches since they got together two years ago, Reckless With Your Love is easily their most popular yet, referencing Hercules & Love Affair, Frankie Knuckles, Inner City and countless 90s house piano riffs and drum machines. Already a dancefloor staple, it secured a much-coveted Tensnake remix which takes the 90s revivalism one step further by ending with a direct sample of C+C Music Factory’s Gonna Make You Sweat, whilst Into The Night has done well by the Nicolas Jaar treatment. Their self-titled debut album was released in August on Loose Lips Records.

Legendary international acts, cult festivals and the most exciting new bands collide at one of the city’s most eclectic live venues.
It’s perhaps natural that, as one of the nation’s most unusual live music venues, our programme spans rock, pop, indie, electronica, soul, jazz, country, metal, folk, and the many sub-genres inbetween. The unique atmosphere and space of the building means it’s often used for anything from intimate acoustic gigs to stage-diving, sweaty rammies and slick, spectacular international concerts.
Supporting the best examples of the known and the not-so-known, the Arches stage is host to everything from the latest stars of leftfield pop, such as Grimes and Chvrches, to alternative indie rock acts such as Peace and Yeasayer, prog and rock heroes such as The Fall, Swans and Dinosaur Jnr, and cutting edge electronic talent, from Rustie to James Blake.
We also regularly plays host to international legends – from Martha Reeves to Ben E. King to Jane Birkin – and provide the perfect multi-room setting for various festivals, from Celtic Connections to the Glasgow Jazz Festival. In 2012, the hallowed arches played hosted to the UK-wide Africa Express tour, featuring Damon Albarn, Baaba Maal and a trainload of world music stars, and in 2013, the building was transformed into a sonic Cineplex for our own co-curated cult event the Glasgow Music and Film Festival, featuring live film scores and AV sets from Jeff Mills, Dieter Moebius and Raime.
“A classical gig in the vaults of Scotland’s dance mecca might sound an odd prospect, but the Arches proved the perfect setting”
