The Arches and Sync In Squares present
Sat 26 May 2012 | 11pm-3am | £6 downstairs // FREE upstairs
DOWNSTAIRS // The Arches presents //
UPSTAIRS // Sync in Squares presents //
Walls are Sam Willis (aka one half of Death Disco/Optimo favourite Allez Allez) and Alessio Natalizia, a Manchester-born London-living electronic duo whose very hyped self-titled first album was one of the most exciting things to happen to 2010, introducing guitars to layered synths and ambient vocals to produce a small masterpiece in simmering bliss which made it into end of year lists from Mojo to NME.
The more dance-orientated Coracle came out last September with its first single being Sunporch – shimmering, euphoric, and as sun-drenched as the title suggests, it’s probably their best known track to date and for good reason; by this point, their list of impressive fans included Jamie xx, Caribou, James Holden and Battles, with whom them went on tour last year.
Their live shows are special. Garnering a reputation as being variously “ecstatic” (to quote a Facebook fan) and “full on and freaked out” (to quote the duo themselves), we are very much looking forward to experiencing this set unfurl, layer upon layer, in the fitting confines of the Stereo basement.
Given that John Talabot’s celebratory layered, looping, building house, Lorca’s 2-step tinged electronica and the ethereal, ambient spaciousness of Becoming Real are some of the most perfectly complimentary sounds we can think of – not to mention a whole upstairs floor curated by new promoter Sync In Squares – fans of any of the above should save this date in their diary now.
N.B. This event takes place at Stereo, 22-28 Renfield Lane, Glasgow, G2 5AR

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.
