Event: Mystex Presents Dirty Mac, The Last B-Boy On Mars, @ The Poetry Club, Glasgow, 1.5.15


Yes folks, part two of a Friday night double header comes courtesy of my old Alma Mater, Mystex, ambling back from the misty great beyond like some weird funky shade with a clutch of burning tunes in one hand and an empty bottle of Buckfast in the other. Wilba and Spud provide the smiles and the vibe in support of a live set by Dirty Mac, the last B-Boy on Mars – a set which Mystex guarantee will be a special experience.

If the past is any indication of the future, expect dirty nasty beats and a wallop of twisted grooves. Doors open at 9PM down at The Poetry Club at 100 Eastvale Place, Glasgow G3, with free entry before 11, but only a very sweet fiver after. Dress casual and dance like you mean it.

Never thought I’d be writing up a listing for Mystex. It’s like a grinning Lazarus in dirty Converse. Excellent. That’s two full on nights this Friday. You’ll get a special award if you make it to both.

Event: La Cheetah & Missing Persons Club Present Joey Anderson @ La Cheetah Club, Glasgow, Friday 1.5.15


Missing Persons Club have had more than their fair share of quality guests over the last couple of years, and this Friday they’re on their way to topping the lot when they and La Cheetah join forces to bring the one and only Joey Anderson north of the border for his Glasgow début. The US producer has consistently been on bang up form for a while now, and hit new heights with last year’s ‘After Forever’ LP for Dekmantel, one of my albums of 2015 and a record that took deep house and techno, and reworked them into something quite special.

I’ve got to tell you, I don’t know what to expect, but if his now legendary set at last year’s Dekmantel festival in Amsterdam is any indication it’s probably best to go prepared for galactic whirlpools of space-age funk and deadly silicon based grooves.

Support from La Cheetah and MPC residents. Doors open at 11 down at Max’s La Cheetah on Queen Street, and those good (well, on this occasion) folk fae the council have bestowed a 4AM licence on the proceedings, meaning you get an extra hour of drenching yourselves in sweat and getting mad with it – for free!

Tickets are a bargain at £8, available in advance from Resident Advisor. I imagine it is going to be mobbed, big time, so do yourself a favour and get down there early enough to physically fit into the place.

Probably also a good idea to not have to work on the Saturday and then leave it too late to take the day off.

Like an utter fanny would.

You’d think I’d know by now.
