The Arches and the Berkeley Suite present

With his name now practically synonymous with Beats In Space, the radio show and now record label he founded as a student at the University of New York, it’s difficult to tell which has become the more sought-after brand. Beginning as a show on student radio, Sweeney’s genre-busting attitude soon had him moved from the small hours of AM to prime time FM, where he attracted an enviable international following as well as guests from Carl Craig to the Avalanches to Lindstrom and Prins Thomas.
A pressure to find new music for his show – whether old or new – soon turned into his own burning need for constant musical discovery, sculpting his record bag and making him into the in-demand DJ and producer he is today. It also blessed him with a career that reads like a dance-punk fanboy’s wet dream: touring with James Murphy, forming DJ duo T&T with Tim Goldsworthy, and of course, playing sax on the DFA remix of Radio 4′s Dance To The Underground.
With Beats In Space launched as a label in 2009, boasting none other than Tensnake as its first 12″ release, Tim’s reputation, schedule and record bag are ever expanding, not only in New York, where he still records his show every Tuesday night, but around the world, where thousands of fans are turning up at his parties and tuning in each week.
Join Tim and the Arches for a night of house, disco and electro in all their many shades.
N.B. This event takes place at The Berkeley Suite, 237 North Street, Glasgow, G3 7DL

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.
