Pressure residents Slam are joined by an all-star international line-up for the May bank holiday weekend.
May sees Slam make another trip stateside, playing at the world famous Movement Festival in Detroit. The imminent completion of their new studio album is also building justified hype. Following on from a prolific five year period in which they have released a plethora of singles and remixes, this will be their first studio release since their Human Response LP on their Soma imprint in 2007.
Wedged in amongst a hectic tour diary, Dubfire will make a welcome return to the venue. Ali ‘Dubfire’ Shirazinia’s decision to go solo in 2005 was anything but easy. Together with Sharam Tayebi he had conquered house music under the name Deep Dish, a partnership which began in 1991 in Washington DC. Since then Dubfire has captured the hearts and ears of techno fans across the globe through his remix of Radio Slave’s Grindhouse and Plastikman’s Spastik along with many of his own productions such as RibCage and Roadkill. His SCI + TEC imprint, launched in 2007, has seen massive releases from the likes of Paul Ritch, Steve Lawler, Davide Squillace, Carlo Lio and of course Dubfire himself, championing the ‘stadium techno’ sound which translates so well to the Arches’ cavernous space.
We are very excited for the Pressure debut for Nicole Moudaber – without doubt one of the biggest producers and DJs around at the moment. Her releases on labels from 8 Sided Dice and Intacto to Intec, Drumcode and Kling Klong have ensured Nicole an incredibly busy diary, touring the world on a weekly basis as well as boasting a high profile summer residency with Carl Cox at Space in Ibiza.
Parisian DJ Ivan Smagghe of Kill The DJ and It’s a Fine Line fame, graces Pressure for the first time since 2007. Highly regarded as a DJ’s DJ, Ivan’s productions have also always stayed true to his passions, avoiding fads and trends that pass in the night and recently seeing success with Visionquest, Crosstown Rebels and the Kill The DJ collective.
Ambivalent is an accomplished producer, DJ and live performer and an integral part of the M_nus crew. Consistently on tour with the Richie Hawtin’s Enter and Plastikman outfits, his intelligent and intricate sets are perfectly fitted to the much celebrated M_nus sound. Recent releases on Cocoon, Plus 8 and M_nus, along with his remixes of Joe Stawarz’s M17 on Soma and Matt Herdman’s Otiose on Incorrect Music have continued to gain him new fans across the world.
Shaded, the new kid on the SCI + TEC block is currently touring with Dubfire and will be bringing his distinctly minimal sound to Glasgow for the first time at this bank holiday Pressure.
