The Arches and Detourjam present
Thu 23 Aug 2012 | 11pm-3am | £8
8pm Fort Romeau (DJ set)
10pm Holy Other
Holy Other returns to Glasgow following his shimmering set at Chambre 69 in May as part of a Tri Angle records showcase, with support from Vessel and Fort Romeau.
With his debut album Held set for release at the end of August, it was actually last year that the ghostly, effervescent fizz of Holy Other’s whatever-step grabbed the music industry’s attention, a fact helped along by his debut EP being released on Tri Angle – one of the most forward-thinking and on-the-money imprints around just now.
Having half signed up for the same mission as How To Dress Well and The Weeknd of rethinking 90s R&B, but with his mind still in minimalism with James Blake and Nicolas Jaar and a seeming obsession with another world altogether, underwater and full of ghosts, Holy Other was always going to be his own thing. With too many slow-building tracks to mention – try on Yr Love, Touch or Feel Something for size if you’re not familiar with him – the only thing to do is to catch him live and feel the sound for yourself.
Brought to you by the Arches and Detourjam, the public were asked to vote for where they wanted to see the act play, with Glasgow being one of the seven finalist cities.
This gig takes place at Stereo, 22-28 Renfield Lane, G2 5AR

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.
