Sunday Circus

Sunday 30th May is Sunday Circus Bank Holiday Special in Glasgow with guest Spencer Parker (Rekids) and residents. This see's them moving to the Ark an even larger capacity venue of 380 with a two level courtyard out the back. There going to be having a BBQ as well as some great circus visuals at the Ark and the afterparty. The afterparty will take place in Stereo over two levels with Solardisco playing in the bar area.

Spencer Parker is one of Europe's leading Djs. His unique style of house music is in demand the world over and support for his productions is widespread with the likes of Luciano, Laurent Garnier, Richie Hawtin, Radio Slave, Nic Fanciulli and Pete Tong. Spencer's DJ style is simply best described as underground electronic house music. A set from Spencer would include acid house and techno alongside some hypnotic instrumental tracks and the odd spaced out vocal.
In 2005 Spencer began his production career with the release of "Open Your Eyes" and 12 months later his second single “Beautiful Noise” both on Radio Slave's Rekids label. In 2008, Spencer's production schedule really stepped up a gear with releases on SAW, Buzzin' Fly, Tsuba and Rekids. In 2009 Spencer released his first compilation album for Rekids, the aptly named 'Rekids Revolution'. Look out for new material on Buzzin Fly, Liebe and of course Rekids but whatever you do dont miss this great night. Last years party sold out well in advance so make sure you get your tickets early....

Digital Deviance

Disco Deviance is all about keeping quality groove based music alive. Their definitition of 'disco' is very wide and inclusive in the tradition of open minded DJ pioneers like Larry Levan, David Mancuso, Nicky Siano and Tee Scott. Some call it 'Balearic'. But musically speaking, they don't care if it's disco, funk, electrofunk, electro, Italo, post-punk, cosmic, afro, house or whatever as long as it's got the funk and makes people want to dance and party. They seek out the very best tracks, editors and DJs to put Their music together. They want it to be essential. The Disco Deviance idea came about in 2004 when Dicky Trisco first met legendary electrofunk DJ Greg Wilson. A shared love of disco and electrofunk lead to a decision to hold one off events together to showcase the sounds they loved. Things grew from there ultimately leading to an imprint dedicated to keeping the vibe alive.

Out next week comes the first Disco Deviance CD "Digital Deviance Vol. 1". It's a beautifully crafted vinyl look package and features edits from the first five vinyl releases plus exclusive bonus cuts from Fat Camp, Eddie Tour, Pete Herbert and Greg Wilson's great edit "CHA".

All ten tracks on the compilation are great "must have" disco gems, definitely one to keep your eyes and ears out for....

Million Dollar Disco

Sadar Bahar is one DJ who Million Dollar Disco (Al Kent) have constantly been in touch with, struggling for dates to bring him over to play. He's been high on their hit list for some time now. So their very excited to finally bring him to Glasgow for his Scottish debut.

Sadar began DJing in the mid '80s, during the height of Chicago's early house music era. He's admired and respected by many DJs, from Rahaan to Theo Parrish, earning him the title "the DJs DJ"! Many retiring Chicago DJs have donated their entire record collections to Sadar, because they know he'll put them to good use! He now has some enviable music, deep knowledge and unbelievable skills and we can't wait to hear him play!

The Big Joint is a special venue for Million Dollar Disco, having previously hosted sell out parties with Rahaan and Theo Parrish. The small dark room, and loud, clear sound is perfectly suited to the musical vibe.

As with the Rahaan party at the start of the month, this will sell out quickly!, Sadar is one of the world's most respected DJs and this is an exclusive visit to the UK, to play a 100 capacity venue! - early booking is highly recommended.

Tickets: Strict Door Entry List. Paypal names plus £10 per person to (email)
