Restoring the over-cited genre of ‘mash-up’ to its full glory, London DJ Jaguar Skills is a skilled craftsman in the art of electronic cutting and pasting.
Proving his worth live at Jade Jagger’s Jezebel night in Ibiza, Skills was soon playing in clubs worldwide. Appealing to the nation’s deteriorating attention span, his weekly ten minute mixes on the Trevor Nelson Show – as well as his mixtapes on Radio 1 and 1xtra – are a bullet of sheer electronic joy, expertly mixing DJ Yoda’s cartoon comedy with sharp cuts of dubstep, electro, house, breaks and R&B. His celebrated hour-long 30 Years Of Hip Hop mix in 2009 contained 538 tracks, charting the entire history of hip hop, whilst his latest mix, commemorating 20 years of Pete Tong by mashing together 50 of the best dance tracks from the past 20 years, is available to download now from the Radio One site.
Performing onstage in a ninja mask, join Jaguar Skills and an array of DJ friends as they descend upon The Arches for a night of impressive turntablism and an eclectic mash-up of huge party tunes, from old school house to 90s rave, TV theme tunes and hip hop classics. And, of course, the trademark shout greeting him from the crowd: HooooOOOOOO!

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.
