Room 1: Nicky Romero
Colours are very proud to present the return of one their favourite young stars of recent years, Nicky Romero, taking up the headline slot at this Protocol Recordings party alongside label buddy and deep/tech house newcomer Nilson. Immersed in music from an early age, after swapping a drum kit for turntables he soon became obsessed with practising his mixing skills and, not soon out of school, began releasing tracks such as Privilege and QWERTY. His track My Friend proved a breakthrough moment, and he’s since toured the world, sharing a residency with David Guetta in Ibiza and collaborating with him closely on more releases this year, as well as teaming up with Avicii for latest single I Could Be The One.
Room 2: Jack Beats
Citing influences as diverse as Timbaland, Rage Against the Machine, A Guy Called Gerald and SebastiAn, Jack Beats (aka Beni G and Scottish hip hop DJ Plus One) teamed up in 2007 to hone a style fusing house, hip hop and dubstep with electro and drum n bass. What emerged was a cutting edge sound, demanding immediate attention with their remix of Boy 8-Bit anthem Fogbank, and what followed were remixes for Skream, Beyoncé, Aloe Blacc, Big Boi, Florence & The Machine and La Roux as well as six of their own own massive electro tracks such as Get Down and All Night.
Utterly dedicated to music and their craft, 2012 brought two mini albums – a “summing up” of everything they’ve experienced so far, with a cast of collaborators including Example, Diplo, Dillon Francis, Chiddy Bang and Takura – as well as touring a new live show. Latest single Somebody To Love was released in December featuring Jess Mills on vocals, and shows off the duo’s eclectic roots, spending their formative years jumping between 90s raves to the earliest underground grime nights with 50 people in attendance.

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.
