Hell Events presents
Fri 18 Nov 2011 | 11pm-3am | £15 + bf
Hell Events are delighted to welcome back one of Supernova’s favourite DJs and one of techno’s key players Umek to the Arches, Glasgow.
Starting out organising raves and parties in the early 90s, and going on to become one of the most prolific and consistently high quality producers of his genre, it’s no surprise that Slovenian DJ and producer Umek is now known to a worldwide audience as “Fotr” – the Father of Slovenian techno, and the culture surrounding it.
A steady member of Top 100 DJ lists for over a decade now amongst many other accolades – including Beatport’s Best Artist of 2011 – Umek is well known for the constant reinvention of his sound. From dubby beats and electro as Zeta Reticula, banging techno on his Consumer Recreation label, party grooves on Recycled Loops, and pumping techno and infectious disco hooks on Astrodisco, his most recent project, the 1605 – Sixteenofive collective, is yet another confirmation of Umek’s place at the top of the international techno scene.

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.
Scotland’s biggest dance promoter, Colours regularly bring the biggest and best names in big room house, tech-house, electro and trance to the venue, with recent guests including Alesso, Otto Knows, Laidback Luke, Dannic, Hardwell, Markus Schulz, Showtek, Gareth Emery, Nervo, AN21 & Max Vangeli, Nicky Romero and many more.
