Heralding the start of summer good and proper – when club nights trickle out in favour of sitting in the summer rain, rancid mud crusting your shins, supping on warm cider and somehow feeling ecstatic – we’ve got a ridiculously packed line-up at Death Disco this month.
We are hugely excited to welcome back Crookers. After working hard for their title as the kings of hip-house with remixes of Busy P and Chromeo, 2008′s Day & Night vs Kid Cudi and their debut album Tons Of Friends last year (on which their ‘friends’ included Major Lazer, Miike Snow, Soulwax and Drop The Lime), Crookers are back with new project Dr Gonzo. Working with Savage Skulls, Wax Motif and Neoteric, the EP is out now, featuring the same addictive Crookers bounce supporting a lot more influences – listen now on www.crookers.net
In the next room, DD favourites Aeroplane and Joakim will be sharing a stage. Vito Deluca, now the sole member of Aeroplane, is still reeling from the enthuastic reception of debut album We Can’t Fly whilst knocking out Soundcloud mixes to rival those of ex-partner The Magician’s mixtape series, the pair of them duelling across the internet as to who can mix the best selection of classic disco re-rubs, piano-heavy house, pop and balaeric nu-disco. We say, stop fighting, guys: your remixes of Grace Jones, Friendly Fires and Sebastien Tellier have enough life in them to last both of your careers. Tigersushi label boss Joakim is one of those horribly talented types who does a bit of everything – an accomplished classical and jazz musician, who also makes delicate nu-disco/house type electronic tracks, including remixes of Tiga, Friendly Fires and, possibly his most famous, his remix of Antena’s Camino Del Sol.
Topping everything off with Jokers of the Scene, a live set from The Whip, Clouds, Ghost Eyes and D/R/U/G/S as well as the full whack of residents, think of it as a festival without the mud, but with all the euphoria.
N.B. Death Disco promotes an alternative, open-minded club environment… Check out our favourite electro disco blog for news on the Glasgow scene.

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.
