Detroit legend Jeff Mills should need no introduction. As one of the founding members of seminal Detroit techno movement Underground Resistance he has been championing techno worldwide for almost 30 years, becoming a well known cult figure in the genre. Every year sees Jeff flying all over the world to spread the gospel of techno, whilst still managing to find the time to run one of the most influential labels in techno Axis Records, as well as sub-labels Purpose Maker, Tomorrow, 6277 and Tresor.
The last few years have seen Jeff hard at work in the studio once again, resulting in the Something In The Sky series – a more floaty, experimental take his sound. With his most recent albums The Occurrence and The Drummer 26 reaffirming Mills’ place at the very top of the techno tree, it’s hard to see him being anywhere else for a long time to come.
When not in the studio producing or remixing, in their own unique way, any one of dozens of acts, Berlin based duo Pan-Pot can be found touring the globe spreading their inimitable sound far and wide. Their DJ sets see them playing back to back and are unconstrained by boundaries as they seamlessly blend techno, house and everything imaginable in between, showing that they know exactly how to work a crowd up to fever pitch.
Once you’ve experienced one of Pan-Pot’s immense DJ sets you will never forget it. Their vision, passion, and love of music continues to drive the pair and their most recent releases, Confronted and Captain My Captain, have elevated their status within the techno scene even further.

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.
