The Arches presents
Sat 16 Apr 2011 | 11pm-3am | £14/£7 (join DD mailing list above)
Responsible for making up the term ‘fidget house’ as a bit of a laugh with his mate Switch, only to see hoardes of bloggers/journos jump on it and rinse it to death, the overlord of modern house Jesse Rose is equally responsible for making some of the biggest dancefloor tracks of the past few years – in 2008 alone he put out You’re All Over My Head, Touch My Horn, Take It To The Club with Herve, Forget My Name with Hot Chip, as well as his anvil-supplemented remix of Ready For The Floor, with his first album proper, What Do You Do If You Don’t, being one of the defining sounds of electrohouse in 2009.
Still moving between the Dubsided label and his own imprint Made To Play, he released his latest track Anthem – made under his Black Rose guise – on Made to Play in Feb 2011, and is currently moving between producing his new solo album and checking out ‘the grimy but very fresh warehouse parties’ in downtown L.A, where he went to escape the ‘uber cold’ Berlin winter for a few months. Such similar lives, Jesse.
The rest of the night will be dedicated to retro-futuristic disco house, vocoded vocals and crisp handclaps. After being scuppered by the snow (remember that?) at our XXXmas party, we’re delighted to welcome BURNS – who sounds like he’s been brought up solely on a diet of Daft Punk, synths and sunshine at a Spanish summer carnival, despite the fact he was born in Glasgow. Check out So Many Nights if you don’t believe us, or his Yasmin, Empire Of The Sun and Passion Pit remixes.
Meanwhile, in the next room, the RPZ boys are bringing us a treat in the form of Xinobi & Moullinex – head honchos of the wonderful Discotexas label/collective based in Portugal. More daft italo disco than Daft Punk, they, too, clearly devour synths and sunshine for breakfast, although this time at a late summer pool party. Whilst Moullinex’s luscious Superman EP was released last year on Gomma following remix requests from Cut Copy and Sebastian Tellier, Xinobi is known as much for tracks such as Day Off and Best Of Me as his remixes – including highly recommended recent ones of Coupons and Toro Y Moi, with a remix of Giorgio Moroder in the bag.

As Scotland’s original superclub, the Arches is the stuff of clubbing legend. There really is no other venue like it in the world.
Repeatedly voted one of the top 100 clubs in the world in DJ magazine, the industrial brick arches are home to a continuous roster of the world’s most in demand DJs and producers from across the dance spectrum, whether it be minimal techno, big bassline electro, hardstyle, deep house, UK bass, dubstep or trance.
With a Funktion 1 soundsystem and three fully stocked bars spread over six subterranean arches, the space is transformed each weekend depending on the faces behind the decks. From huge, sell out nights with platinum selling Ibiza trendsetters such as Alesso and Laidback Luke or legendary acts such as Fatboy Slim, Carl Cox and Jeff Mills, to the hottest, most-hyped names on the dance scene’s lips – from Jamie Jones and Nina Kraviz to Jackmaster and Omar S, ours is one of the most diverse club programmes in the city.
As well as the Arches’ own club nights, which have recently brought the likes of Hot Creations label, Madeon and Chase & Status to the venue, for many fans the Arches is synonymous with either of its two biggest nights, Pressure and Colours.
Slam have now been playing and promoting in the Arches since 1992 with their monthly techno and house night Pressure celebrating it’s 16th anniversary in November 2014. Normally taking place on the last Friday of the month, Pressure sees the biggest names in the game playing regularly, with guests like Richie Hawtin, Ben Klock, Laurent Garnier, Joris Voorn, Maya Jane Coles, Pan-Pot, Chris Liebing, Dave Clarke, Len Faki, Dubfire, Gary Beck, Visonquest, Heidi, Vitalic and Green Velvet joining resident DJs Slam in recent times.
Scotland’s biggest dance promoter, Colours regularly bring the biggest and best names in big room house, tech-house, electro and trance to the venue, with recent guests including Alesso, Otto Knows, Laidback Luke, Dannic, Hardwell, Markus Schulz, Showtek, Gareth Emery, Nervo, AN21 & Max Vangeli, Nicky Romero and many more.
