Arch 2 (Drumcode 15th Anniversary)
LOCO DICE //
After kicking of the Soma 20 celebrations earlier this year with his remix of the classic track East Men’s U Dig, Loco Dice returns to Pressure for the first time since 2007. Dice’s unique sound is built on a wealth of global influences, from his hip hop background and recording his debut album in New York, to his residencies at DC10 and Cocoon in Ibiza, cementing his reputation as one of the most dynamic DJs in the world.
ADAM BEYER //
One of the biggest forces in techno at the moment, his achievements over the last decade and a half are unparalleled. As well as shaping Sweden’s techno scene with his Drumcode label, he also added to the Soma 20 release series with a classic remix of Slam’s Stepback.
SLAM (LIVE SET) //
As well as a Pressure institution, Slam are an integral part of the Drumcode sound. They join the celebrations with their lauded live performance. Their track Area 51 is the most recent release of several they have put out on the Drumcode imprint.
JOSEPH CAPRIATI //
A new addition to the Drumcode imprint, the young Italian is one of the most exciting up-and-coming names in techno at the moment. With tracks signed on Hawtin’s Plus 8 label, amongst other famous imprints, Capriati is a name to watch out for.
HARVEY MCKAY //
Harvey McKay has emerged from Glasgow’s underground clubbing scene to become one of the hottest prospects in electronic music today. Having previously released on Perc Trax, 8-Sided Dice, Trapez and Soma, Harvey has had a string of successful EPs, including the dark, brooding Nightwalker and the jacking Shift (both Soma Records, 2010). Keep an eye out for his debut Drumcode and Saved releases.

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.
