Mixed Bizness and Slam Events join together to bring Felix Da Housecat to the Arches, Glasgow for the Bank Holiday weekend, with a back-to-back set from Boom Monk Ben and the much-hyped newcomer HaHaHa.
Having only recently smashed the Slam Tent at T In The Park while also residing at Pacha Ibiza this summer for Pete Tong, the time is definitely right to bring Felix back to Glasgow. With a massive fan base, his popularity extends far beyond his music; just his very presence will incite a sense of excitement amongst the club-going public. Everyone knows Felix Da Housecat. Your mum knows, your sister knows, your estranged cousin in Tasmania knows, so having him at The Arches will, for many, equal the night of the year. Guided as a teenager under the watchful eye of acid house legend DJ Pierre, Felix’s rise to prominence has been nothing short of stratospheric. From his first release Phantasy Girl in 1987 to the seminal Silver Screen Shower Scene which helped kickstart electroclash, Felix has always been at the forefront of dance music. Turning out one of the biggest tracks of last summer, Thee Anthem, and releasing free album Son Of Analogue earlier this year has reiterated that. When he brings his Sinnerman – Best Of… tour through Glasgow you can expect things to go well and truly off.
On warm up duties you’ll find one of the most exciting up and coming producers in Glasgow right now. HaHaHa’s instant sit up and take notice sound has made fans out of everyone from A Trak, to Martyn, Carte Blanche to Sinden, blazing a trail of certified hype which he refuses to fall victim to. With his recent Adzuki Beans EP signed to A1 Bassline’s Tighten Up label and a constantly developing sound which not one person has successfully pigeonholed, you can rest assured he will bring something special to proceedings. Add to the fact that he will be going back-to-back with Mixed Bizness head honcho, globe-trotting DJ and trend-setting ginger, Boom Monk Ben and we have potential for an out and out classic on our hands. The duo will be touring this set-up in the future, so this is your chance to see the fireworks first.

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.
