The Arches presents

Uffie comes to the Arches, Glasgow for a live set at Death Disco.
Girls want to be her, everyone wants to be with her. Don’t even try to deny it. Ten tons of attitude squeezed into 90 pounds of party grrrl, Uffie is returning to the Death Disco stage for an intimate, up-close-and-sticky performance.
All Parisian arrogance, Miami cool and international school tantrums, Uffie made the move from socialite to nu-skool rapper after then-boyfriend Feadz encouraged her to provide vocals for his track Uffie and Me. Fast forward a bit and you’ve got a deal with Ed Banger, production from Mr Oizo and SebastiAn, collaborations with Justice and N.E.R.D’s Pharrell Williams, and a generous handful of nu-skool-rap-meets-French-electro hits: Pop The Glock, Tthhee Ppaarrttyy, In Charge, Hot Chick, Ready To Uff, MCs Can Kiss… After finally pushing out her debut album Sex Dreams and Denim Jeans last year after a baby-related break, she released her cover of Tom Tom Club’s Wordy Rappinghood (a track crying out for the Uffie-Ed Banger treatment, non?) in April. Just don’t even MENTION Ke$ha.
Canadian production wunderkind Felix Cartal will be taking it up a notch to finish off the night with some heavy electronica. Not for the faint hearted, his tracks Drugs, Parisienne and Montreal Dreams first kicked the sh*t out of the genre back in 2007, before truly finishing it off with his first album, Popular Music, on Bloody Beetroots label Dim Mak in 2010. All relentless Vitalic-esque builds, electro robotic vocals and punk rock energy, Berlin, Boy And His Computer and Popular Music were soon nudging their way into record bags from MSTRKRFT to Felix Da Housecat and Richie Hawtin.

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.
