Otherwise known as ‘one half of Aeroplane’, that title is starting to fade as Stephen Fasano has secured his own fanbase as The Magician. Whereas Vito was more focused on making tracks, Stephen still got his kicks out of making people dance at parties. Or so the rumour goes. Following in the success of the Aeroplane Soundcloud mixtapes, he’s been releasing his own ‘magic tapes’ (see what he did there) which mix disco, pop and electronica, tending to focus on the highly emotional, over-dramatic hi-NRG side of it all – suggesting to us that he really does just want to make people dance at parties. Remixes of Lykke Li’s I Follow Rivers and The Aikiu’s The Red Kiss support the theory.
Renaissance Man make lush, playful, modern HOUSE music, staying true to the basic elements of the genre but using tip-top production and a focus on modern sounds to ensure it is nothing but sparklingly relevant to today’s club scene. Two guys from Finland, they started making music in 2008 after starting Helsinki club night NOW. EPs on Dubsided and Sound Pellegrino were followed by remix requests from Brodinski & Noob, Crystal Fighters, Crookers and Delphic.
Add to that Bright Light Bright Light’s Casio-friendly disco pop anthems, blissed out, warm waves of housey electronica from Brooklyn duo Blondes (before they go on tour with SMD and The Juan Maclean) and debut set from our new resident HaHaHa and you have this month’s satisfyingly packed Death Disco line-up. A touch irresistible.
NB: Death Disco promotes an alternative, open-minded club environment… http://www.deathdisco.info

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.
