The Berkeley Suite gets a proper taste of NYC as two of the city’s finest disco/house DJs play back to back, with help from Glasgow’s own Hushpuppy.
The pair of truly dons of the New York scene. DFA label and A&R manager, known for being one of the nicest guys in the industry to boot, Justin Miller plays the best parties not only in the city but across the world, with an earnest love of music which supercedes sleepnessless. Same goes for Renault – with a record label history taking in Throne of Blood, Italians Do It Better, Rekids and, of course, DFA, through his own label On The Prowl he’s released tracks from Azari & III, Tensnake, Kaos and The Revenge, amongst many others, whilst his Let’s Play House events bring international and local disco and house acts to Brooklyn warehouses, Manhattan ballrooms and everything in between.
With a little help from THIS city’s own disco don Hushpuppy providing primitive electronics, proto-house, Afro-cosmic and metal beats…
This event takes place at The Berkeley Suite, 237 North Street, Glasgow, G3 7DL
Legendary international acts, cult festivals and the most exciting new bands collide at one of the city’s most eclectic live venues.
It’s perhaps natural that, as one of the nation’s most unusual live music venues, our programme spans rock, pop, indie, electronica, soul, jazz, country, metal, folk, and the many sub-genres inbetween. The unique atmosphere and space of the building means it’s often used for anything from intimate acoustic gigs to stage-diving, sweaty rammies and slick, spectacular international concerts.
Supporting the best examples of the known and the not-so-known, the Arches stage is host to everything from the latest stars of leftfield pop, such as Grimes and Chvrches, to alternative indie rock acts such as Peace and Yeasayer, prog and rock heroes such as The Fall, Swans and Dinosaur Jnr, and cutting edge electronic talent, from Rustie to James Blake.
We also regularly plays host to international legends – from Martha Reeves to Ben E. King to Jane Birkin – and provide the perfect multi-room setting for various festivals, from Celtic Connections to the Glasgow Jazz Festival. In 2012, the hallowed arches played hosted to the UK-wide Africa Express tour, featuring Damon Albarn, Baaba Maal and a trainload of world music stars, and in 2013, the building was transformed into a sonic Cineplex for our own co-curated cult event the Glasgow Music and Film Festival, featuring live film scores and AV sets from Jeff Mills, Dieter Moebius and Raime.
“A classical gig in the vaults of Scotland’s dance mecca might sound an odd prospect, but the Arches proved the perfect setting”
