Featured Club of the Week: Discopia
Venue: The Admiral
Date: 3rd July

They've come to save your house and disco! Or rather, if you fancy jigging away in the name of local revivals this is the club fundraiser for you!

Lo-Quality grabbed a quick chat with Discopia co-founder Niall Connolly to get the lowdown.

Who is the fundraiser for and why? "We are raising funds to get the Discopia website back online. We launched it in 2005 (after being a printed fanzine) and have featured writing from and articles on David Mancuso, Greg Wilson, Alden Tyrell, Daniel Wang, Metro Area, Nicky Siano, JD Twitch, I-F, Daniele Baldelli, Bill Brewster and more. The radio show had sets from Prins Thomas, Cosmo, Maurice Fulton, Danny Wang and hundreds of other folk. But one of the main aspects of the 'zine is that it was a platform for, and supported, the Glasgow disco scene, which basically doesn't get a look in anywhere else. So when we return we will have interviews with some pretty big names, but also a focus on all the DJ and production talent on our doorstep. We are also planning to start a record label to release music by some of that talent too."

Who is playing? "We've managed to get the cream of Glasgow's disco DJs on board for the fundraiser, which I am very proud about! Our kick ass line up will see music being spun by Billy Woods (Der Supermax), Andrew Pirie (Melting Pot), Teamy (Wrong Island), David Barbarossa (Fun Size), Ally McLeod (Refo Recordings) and myself. Melting Pot have kindly let us take their slot at the Admiral while they're on a summer hiatus, so really there's no excuse not to come. Get your dancing shoes on!"

What are you wearing? "My best Brian-Blessed-in-Flash-Gordon finery."

11pm-3am, £6

Extra: Free mix for your listening pleasure and to celebrate the Discopia website: "It's 69 minutes of very uptempo, string-laden, soulful late-70s disco, and you can download it from here.
