From his time spent exploiting the sub-driven rave of early tracks, through to his dabbling in a heavy-hitting live show and the more dancefloor-focussed machine-funk of the recent Waves Trilogy, the name Drums Of Death is synonymous with highly original, personality-driven dance music of the highest calibre. A favourite amongst the Glasgow crowds, the ex-pat voodoo child is back to wow us once more. Having recently moved on from the Waves Trilogy into fresh territories, recent tunes like Bang The Dub and This Night have put the wheels in motion for what is set to be a very big and bold year for new Drums Of Death music.
Tickets are £5 all night.

Chicago is coming to Glasgow as The Arches welcomes the triumvirate of Chicago dance music – Felix Da Housecat, DJ Pierre and Marshall Jefferson – to the venue for a night of big vocals and even bigger basslines. Back with a slew of new material, including a new album later this year, Felix Da Housecat is still one of the dance scene’s most sought-after names. A notably eccentric personality and game-changing artist, his sound has continually morphed over a 20 year career from the raucous, biting acid-techno of his early material to the future-retro, nu-skool electro of massive, still-classic hits such as Silver Screen Shower Scene and We All Wanna Be Prince. It’s unsurprising that a young Felix was in fact mentored by DJ Pierre – also known as the forefather of acid house. An original member of Phuture, whose 1987 E.P. Acid Tracks is generally known as the first acid house recording, his name is also now synonymous with the consistently excellent early house label Strictly Rhythm, and hits such as Generate Power, Follow Me and The Horn Song. Finishing off this legend-packed bill is fellow Chicago house producer Marshall Jefferson, whose 1986 single Move Your Body (The House-Music Anthem) became just that, remaining one of the best house tracks of all time. A prolific DJ in the 90s house scene, he is also known for his production work for CeCe Rogers, Stirling Void and Ten City.
