June 2010 (Week 1) Clubbing Listings: Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, and Dundee


Club: Tokyoblu
Venue: Cabaret Voltaire
Date: 4th June

Tokyoblu invite back Epic 26 for another live house gig with extra percussion from Davi McGeorge and support from the Tokyoblu DJs themselves, John and Iain. Room 2 is funkily hosted by Niall and Denis McKervey, and DJ Nobad. Plus there's a free Tokyoblu CD giveaway; 50 copies of five different mixes from DJs playing on the night - grab a limited edition copy while you can!

11pm-3am, £8 / £5 guestlist

Club: Jackhammer
Venue: The Caves

Date: 5th June

After a few cancellations hitting Scotland over the last month, clubs and artists have still managed to find a way to bring music to you; having re-scheduled his Telefunken appearance from last month, Rolando now plays Jackhammer.

Roll up for Rolando, the Knight of Jaguar, for a Telefunken Jackhammer show in Edinburgh's underbelly. We're way past the Underground Resistance days now, but his important influence in underground house and techno still resonates to this day - plus he's perhaps the only Detroit DJ to choose a relocation to Edinburgh! Stephen Brown supports.

10.30pm-3am, £9

Club: Big 'N' Bashy
Venue: The Bongo Club
Date: 5th June

At some point you'll need to lay off the house and techno beats this weekend, so Big 'N' Bashy provide the reggae, grime and dubstep at a cool temperature. Messenger Sound System, Decoy Roy, Deburgh, Tekamine and Faze are all in on the Saturday night action.

11pm-3am, £tbc

Club: Volume!
Venue: Sneaky Pete's
Date: 5th June

How many free parties have Volume! had now? Plenty by my records, but they just keep giving, with another residents special featuring Termite, G-Mac, Paranoise and Brian D'Souza on the dubstep, bassline, jungle, dnb and Baltimore.

11pm-3am, £0


Club: Numbers & Monox
Venue: Sub Club
Date: 4th June

Techno clubs unite! Here's hoping they have special techno fraternity rings which can be combined to produce Captain M-Plant - oh wait, they can, it's the Numbers and Monox beast with Robert Hood! Detroit sounds ring out against Levon Vincent's house jams and the lovely-titled (if I do say so myself) Underground Quality label boss, DJ Jus Ed.

10pm-4am, £12

Club: Confusion
Venue: Soundhaus
Date: 5th June

Radioactive Man aka Keith Tenniswood of the Two Lone Swordsmen spins electro, techno and breaks for the Soundhaus select, playing his second of only two Scottish dates in the run up to summer. Matthew Smillie (Stereofunk), Matt Lygate (Orderly Disorder), Ben McKlusky, and James Campbell b2b with Ross McDonald form the support!

11pm-3am, £10 guests / £8 members

Extra: Also playing at Jackhammer, Radioactive Man stops off in Edinburgh on June 4 at the Wee Red Bar. Stepback and Gee Dubs on support. 11pm-3am, £8 / £6


Club: Let it Bleed and Mixtape
Venue: Snafu
Date: 4th June

For their 'end of term smackdown', the man who put sin into Sinden and tropical sounds will delight the students celebrating the end of exams and the coming of summer with an electro and house smackin' set.

11pm-3am, £7 adv.


Club: Headway
Venue: Reading Rooms
Date: 4th June

Take 2! This event had to be rescheduled due to the sudden illness of Carl Craig's daughter - all is well now though, so here's last month's blurb to remind you of what's ahead!

From Detroit to Dundee: Carl Craig leaves Planet E for Planet Earth to ring in Headway's 6th Birthday with a special extended set. And they may not have all of it, but Headway are also bringing in part of the Funktion 1 sound system to ensure the moody bass and enticing melodies are at just the right level.

9.30pm-3am, £12 adv.

More info: Tickets bought for last month are still valid.

Extra: Carl Craig's Resident Advisor podcast no. 200 is available here
