Pressure return to the Arches after a three month summer break to kick off their autumn season with one of Berlin’s foremost purveyors of dark, futuristic techno Marcel Dettmann.
Making rough, raw and reduced techno, Dettmann is an integral part of the Berlin sound, with his sets delicately referencing the genre’s history while keeping close to his future minimalist ideals – as anyone who’s seen him DJ at the infamous Berghain club will testify.
Having released his debut album in 2010 on Berghain’s label Ostgut Ton and remixed artists as diverse as Fever Ray, Junior Boys, Modeselektor and Scuba, Dettmann’s productions and remixes bring together the extremities of quality electronic music. Dettmann also runs his MDR label, releasing records by Norman Nodge, Wincent Kunth and, of course, himself.
Sitting at the top of their game, Slam have released two massive records for Drumcode (Vespula) and their Paragraph label (The RTM Project) in the last month, with two new EPs to follow in August – Campana, which comes out on Len Faki’s Figure label, and their new release on Soma, Old School Jams for the New Republic. Immediately after this night, the duo fly to Berlin to play with Len Faki in Berghain.

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.
