As a son of Detroit, Jimmy Edgar has invariably been tied to the Motor City throughout his career, yet his sound goes beyond just those local roots. With his electro-funk basslines, 80s synth stabs and bucketload of sleaze, Edgar’s leftfield electronica originally found a home on Warp Records and then K7 Records, with latest album Majenta released on Hotflush this May. Delvinh deeper and darker, it sees Edgar connect more with the techno soundscape of his youth, allowing it to resonate with a distinctive blend of funk, R&B and sexual spoken word narratives. This ambitious live show synchronises his sound with LED lighting to create a complete visual experience which touches on his other passions as an artist, designer and photographer.
If ever there was a multifaceted artist it was Machinedrum. Producing under multiple guises, Travis Stewart has been at the heart of underground electronic music in New York for the best part of a decade. His eclectic exploration of genres from Chicago footwork to experimental hip-hop has led to his current distinctive sound, evolving in step with the current vogue genres whilst retaining a crisp sense of individuality. Some of his most recent productions have found a home on Scottish soil, with Glasgow-based imprint LuckyMe releasing both the Many Faces EP and this year’s SXLND EP. It’s some time since his last Glasgow solo appearance, so we’re really excited to welcome him to Chambre 69.
We’ve paired our American guests with two fine, varied examples of local talent. Dam Mantle has been a presence on the Glasgow scene and beyond for some time now, impressing many with his innovative rhythms and kaleidoscopic arrangement of synths and samples, whilst opening the party will be HARA (HaHaHa & Raksha), the pairing of Glasgow producers HaHaHa and Raksha on new label High Sheen. Already individually respected, this may well be the start of an exciting new name for Glasgow.
This event takes place at Chambre 69, 69 Nelson Mandela Place, Glasgow, G3 7DL

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.
