Disco Deviance Presents - Pete Herbert & Dicky Trisco at The Berkeley Suite

Hopefully the first of more nights to come from the great Disco Deviance label at Glasgow's ever popular late night bar and club The Berkeley Suite. The highly popular Disco Deviance label has been at the heart of the Disco resurgence over the past few years, and DD residents Dicky Trisco & Pete Herbert have been behind many of the imprints best-selling releases. They also form a formidable DJ partnership melting the boundaries between funk, disco and house in the constant search for the best party vibe they can produce. The irresistible sound of their DJ sets has led to regular appearances at festivals like Glastonbury, Vintage and Rockness in the UK, plus constant touring around Europe (including Dicky's adopted summer residence in Ibiza), and annual trips further afield to Australia, Japan, China and South East Asia. On line DJ mixes by the two are highly in demand with downloads reaching into the 1000s for their Disco Deviance DJ mixes. On the radio, Disco Deviance do their monthly Pulse show and Pete does a weekly slot for Ibiza Sonica called Music For Swimming Pools.

Pete and Dicky also co-run House music imprint Maxi Discs together and have released a series of very well received club bangers on the label. Pete is also well known for his days as owner of the legendary Atlas Records in London, and for his successful releases under several monikers such as Reverso 68, LSB and Frontera. Dicky is one half of electrofunk and leftfield disco outfit Boogie Corporation (2020 Vision) and runs a number of other underground music ventures including the brand new 100% original disco imprint File Under Disco. Together they bring years of musical experience and knowledge to the party, and a desire to always rock the dance floor! 

The Berkeley Suite has seen some amazing guests pass through it's door's in the last while such as Prins Thomas, Horse Meat Disco, Optimo, Gerry Rooney, Thomas Bullock, the list goes on & on, with Pete Herbert & Dicky Trisco being the greatest latest additions.
This night is not to be missed!

Maurice Fulton At La Cheetah

Maurice Fulton cut his teeth as a hip-hop DJ, and most noticibly programmed drums and played keyboards on aboveground house hits by Crystal Waters and Ultra Naté. He started a stockpile of production pseudonyms including Boof, Eddie & the Eggs, Sticky People, and Syclops -- that likely numbers north of 20. His best-known work will forever remain within Crystal Waters' "Gypsy Woman," but the early 2000s saw him achieve a different kind of notoriety as the non-shrieking half of Mu, a collaborative affair with his wife, Mutsumi Kanamori. Mu's Afro Finger and Gel (2003) and Out of Breach (Manchester's Revenge) (2005) are two gleaming examples of left-field house at its least predicable.

Maurice has also developed into the most reliably creative and off-the-wall remixer. A complete compilation of his commissioned output would span several discs. A typical Fulton remix bends and mutates synthesized elements of house, funk and disco without sounding the least bit stilted or forced. In Fulton's hands, polite and pleasant house tracks are given edge and a whole lot of bite.

La Cheetah in Glasgow are proud to have him and invite you to join them for this rare treat!

Support on the night will be in the more than capable hands of Glasgow based selector Jamie Thomson (Traxx).

Electro Enemies

This weekend see's some real pioneers and legends playing in Max's La Cheetah club in Glasgow. The "Electro Enemies" weekend kicks off in style with legendary Italian producer Alexander Robotnick. He made his debut on the Italian music scene as the founding-member of Avida. Robotnick has had a long and colorful history, including scoring films in the eighties and joining a world music troupe in the nineties, but he’s most celebrated for his pioneering electro tracks such as ‘Problèmes D'Amour’ from 1983. He is joined on the night by Glasgow's great Jelly Roll Soul DJ's who have brought some outstanding guests to their club nights in the city over the past while. Also joining them on the turntables in full effect will be The Wasp (Pest Control Records) and Craig Moog (Piece Together).

The fun continues on Sunday with the all round creative Alan Oldham (DJ-T1000). A lifelong cartoonist and graphic designer, a young Alan Oldham published his own indie comic book "Johnny Gambit" in 1987 to local notoriety. Hired that same year by his childhood friend Derrick May to illustrate several memorable pieces for his new Transmat label, this led to Oldham's very first involvement in the fledgling techno scene. More art requests quickly followed, most famously from the Djax-Up-Beats label (NL), where his art took center stage for many years (the lone EP that Oldham produced for Djax, under the name Signal To Noise Ratio, brought home a 1991 Detroit Metro Times Music Award for best single in "Detroit Is Burning"). Since those long-ago days, a solo Oldham continues to rock crowds in Berlin (with an unofficial residency at Tresor), Naples, Barcelona (unofficial residency at Moog), Madrid, London, Tel Aviv, Tokyo and all points in between with his own no-nonsense brand of bangin', funky-ass techno. When DJ T-1000 is on the flyer, fans know he's bringing the ruckus. When he's not behind the decks or in the studio producing electronic dance music for labels like Tresor Berlin, Inzec (CH), Minimalsoul (CH), or his own Pure Sonik and Generator imprints, his drawings and paintings have been on display in art galleries in Chicago, Berlin, Paris, Los Angeles, and Amsterdam, the last of which was a SOLD-OUT opening attracting the likes of Ben Sims, Dave Clarke, DJ Bone, Ritzi Lee, DJ Kammy, and art lovers from Berlin, Dresden, and London. A true autodidact and all-around artist, Oldham's latest album, "Beyond Djax," a companion piece to the Amsterdam art show, is out now on Pure Sonik Records. He is joined on the night by Glasgow's Pro Vinylist Karim (PVK), Slabs Of The Tabernacle DJ's who have also brought some stunning guests to the city, The brilliant Jamie Thomson (Melting Pot/Traxx), Kev Stevens and De Large. This is a weekend not to be missed out on. Tickets available from Rubadub records and Max's Bar on Queen St Glasgow. For everyone who is attending ENJOY....
