The Arches, Colours and Capital FM present
Sat 12 Oct 2013 | 10pm-3am | £20 + booking fee
Duke Dumont comes to The Arches on Saturday 12th October, with support from FCL, Underground Paris and local collective The Shimmy.
10pm – 3am The Shimmy
The Arches hosts a night of house music all night long as no.1 smash hit-maker Duke Dumont plays his first set in the club since releasing Need You (100%), the track which saw him rocket to the top of the charts this April. Mentored by Switch, and with two releases on Tiga’s Turbo Recordings, Duke Dumont made a name for himself as remixer du jour as early as 2006 with strong house versions of pop tracks from the likes of Santigold, Bat For Lashes, Lily Allen and Aluna George. His latest track, Hold On featuring MNEK, is a smooth, effortless vocal-focused house classic, released this July and already a firm favourite on the dancefloor.
He’s joined by two of our favourite names in house right now, both making their debut Arches appearance. Belgian duo FCL, aka Ruurt en Wilfried, are the masterminds behind such club classics as Let’s Go, More Than Seven and the cover version of ESP’s It’s You.
Best known as the founder of independent Parisien house label My Love Is Underground, Underground Paris is a house-obsessed producer and DJ in his own right and, if his second label release Paris Underground Trax Vol 1 is anything to go by, we’re expecting a set of the best in Chicago-influenced, piano-heavy, techno-tinged deep house.
Please enter through Argyle Street entrance

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.
