Yes, Chicago is coming to Glasgow as The Arches welcomes the triumvirate of Chicago dance music to the venue for a night of big vocals and even bigger basslines.

Back with a slew of new material, including a new album later this year, Felix Da Housecat is still one of the dance scene’s most sought-after names. A notably eccentric personality and game-changing artist, his sound has continually morphed over a 20 year career from the raucous, biting acid-techno of his early material to the future-retro, nu-skool electro of massive, still-classic hits such as Silver Screen Shower Scene and We All Wanna Be Prince.

It’s unsurprising that a young Felix was in fact mentored by DJ Pierre – also known as the forefather of acid house. An original member of Phuture, whose 1987 E.P. Acid Tracks is generally known as the first acid house recording, his name is also now synonymous with the consistently excellent early house label Strictly Rhythm, and hits such as Generate Power, Follow Me and The Horn Song.

Finishing off this legend-packed bill is fellow Chicago house producer Marshall Jefferson, whose 1986 single Move Your Body (The House-Music Anthem) became just that, remaining one of the best house tracks of all time. A prolific DJ in the 90s house scene, he is also known for his production work for CeCe Rogers, Stirling Void and Ten City.

About the Mental Health Foundation
 
The night is being run in collaboration with Mental Health Foundation with the aim of promoting a positive attitude about mental health. With three quarters of mental illness occurring before people hit their mid-20s, it is very important that people in this (or any) age group know that they are definitely not alone and that help is available to everyone.
