Laurent Garnier presents L.B.S (4 hour set)
Ben Klock

We’re very excited to bring three of techno’s biggest players together in Glasgow to mark the 20th anniversary of the very first Slam at the Arches.

Opening up the party in the front arch – the room they made their own for 6 years, every Friday from April 10th 1992 – Slam will be celebrating their 20th anniversary at the club with an expert selection of new music plus some of their own unreleased creations. They’ll also be closing the party with a set of classics in the famed back arch following a set from not only one of the original and biggest Pressure names but one of the first guests at those original Slam parties, Laurent Garnier.

With a musical diversity and DJing flair which has cemented him as a hero amongst clubbers everywhere, his L.B.S. tour is the next level. Whether you choose to think of it as Ben & Scan X, Live Booth Sessions or Loud Bass & Samples, one thing we do know is that L.B.S means Laurent Garnier, Benjamin Rippert and Stephane “Scan X” Dri live on stage, with Garnier manning turntables and “machines,” Rippert playing keys, and Dri also on machines, giving Laurent the freedom to weave other people’s music into the set via decks, juxtaposing live renditions of his own material.

Topping off the bill is Ben Klock, resident at Berlin’s Berghain and one of Pressure’s favourite DJs, who slaughtered three venues when he came to Glasgow last year – Electric Frog, the Pressure afterparty at the Arches, and substanz underground.

This may very well be night of the year…

Glasgow’s foremost deep house and techno night, Pressure continually seeks out the biggest and most exciting new names in the field, bringing them to the Arches on the last Friday of every month for an epic celebration of electronic sound with resident DJs Slam.
