Reso (Pitch Black) and Doctor P spin four decks of dancehall, jungle, reggae, dubstep and big’n’bashy hyperactive bass through the Elecktrikal Sound System, teaming with lasers and dancers! It’s like a Major Lazer comic strip come true. I’m still not sure which other clubs in Scotland, if any, have pole dancers onstage.

Sounds like:

11pm-3am, £10 / £8 before midnight or if you have a vagina.

Club: We Own

Sounds like: I apologise for the inclusion of Tim Westwood in this video. However, the idea of him sleazily ordering prostitutes tickles my funny bone.
