July 2010 (Week 4) Clubbing Listings: Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, and Dundee


Club: It's All Good
Venue: Cabaret Voltaire
Date: 30th July

It’s an It’s All Good Residents’ Party this week, with all shades of house (funky, hard, groovy, electro and here) and brand new residents on rotation, Niall Angus and Craig Wilson. Tommy Kay, Claudio, Tonykeo, Stuart Kane, Gregsta and Niall will tear up the Cab Vol’s Speakeasy, and discounted table deals are available in advance from

11pm-3am, £ 5

Club: Sahara Sessions
Venue: Po Na Na
Date: 30th July

On the same night as It’s All Good is another house contender; the launch night of Sahara Sessions at student-friendly Po Na Na, aiming to “bring fun, glam and sexy clubbing back to Edinburgh”. Again, that probably means I’m not invited until I pick up the glam and sexy side of things, but if you’re diggin’ the funky, disco-sparring house rhythms of labels such as Defected or Hed Kandi join John Hutchison as he spins the vinyl biscuits.

10.30pm–3am, £7 / £4 before 11pm

Club: Jackhammer
Venue: The Caves
Date: 30th July

As you can tell from the name, expect nothing but cuddly, fluffy, sweetie beats – what more can you expect from the head of Tortured Records? Actually scratch that, Jackhammer likes to mess your head up and rub your ear drums up and down the stone walls with techno ferocity, so good thing they’ve got Billy Nasty! The Stepback DJs and Gee Dubs support.

10.30pm-3am, £7 / £5

Club: Cause It
Venue: The GRV
Date: 31st July


A charity night in support of St Columba's Hospice, Cause It welcomes Canadian techno purveyor Patrick DSP (Blackout Audio) alongside residents from JakN and Jungledub; F-N, Sekonz, Brother Most Righteous, Tamobanter, and Tekamine. Party to techno and feel the charitable vibes!

10pm-3am, £6

Club: Big 'N' Bashy
Venue: The Bongo Club
Date: 31st July


Rinse FM DJs Elijah and Skilliam play an intimate gathering of dubstep, reggae and bassy charms for the Big 'N' Bashy crew. Also faithfully taking on DJ duties are Taz Buckfaster (Subway), Deburgh and Decoy Roy; no, you don't need to wipe your feet, that grime is supposed to be there! Check Eliah and Skilliam's recent podcast here - go on, click it, you know you want to.

11pm-3am, £7


Featured Event of the Week: Electric Frog Street Carnival
Venue: SWG3
Date: 1st August

Ah, I like the idea of a mini-festival; one which requires no flippin’ tent or having to buy in ‘sensible’ shoes. No, I like my fests on concrete with flushing toilet access and short bar queues. If you’re of similar mind set check out the electro line-up occurring inside and outside, across three stages, under the influence of five bars and a food court chucked in to make sure you can top up what you sweat off.

In the Optimo (Espacio) Marquee: Liquid Liquid, Simian Mobile Disco, Alter Ego, Optimo and Factory Floor.

In the Sensu Room: Felix da Housecat, Luke Slater presents Planetary Assault Systems live, Cottam and of course the Sensu crew, live.

The Street Party brings on: Trus’me, Simon Cordiner & Billy Woods, Teamy & Dirty Larry (Wrong Island), Dema & Nice (Freakmenouvers), and Craig Moogroove & Kev Stevens.

It’s a veritable mix of local acts, cherished global hits, and more electronic music crammed onto warehouse land beside the Clyde than should be possible. Techno, house, electro, disco, punk, bass and plenty screams of ‘wan more tune’.

2pm-11pm, £32+bf / £29+bf early bird


Club: Ironworks Summer Party
Venue: The Ironworks, Inverness
Date: 31st July

The Ironworks venue is hosting a summer party with special guests Les Petits Pilous from Boys Noize Records (rescheduled from June). Anthony Ferrando and Jean-Patrick Simonetti dish out thrashing electronica like a repeated kick to the head by a gang of mean-street synths. 

10pm-late, £7 adv.
