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.
Supported by Awards for All and The Merchants House of Glasgow.

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.
