Stamina with DEN HAAN (Optimo Music/The Courier of Death)
Friday 26th January 2018


Our big ol’ night of disco back in May was one our favourite nights to date, so we are bringing back the disco with the help of a three hour set of italo and dirty disco by Glasgow’s Hi-NRG Gods from outer space: Den Haan! “Den Haan are built for the rhythms of the night. Their releases are the spirit of seedy 70s basement dives, a deco-greco roman blur of glistening bodies and dazzling lights.”

All Good presents JASPER JAMES
Friday 9th February 2018


We thought after a wee month hiatus we’d get right back into the thick of it and get back our good friend, Jasper James. Jasper's been busy as f**k playing everywhere you can think of the past year, really cementing his place in the scene. It’s been too long since we last had the Glaswegian through our doors - this will be a definite stomper!

All Good presents CAMELPHAT
Sunday 25th February 2018


We don't know where CamelPhat hail from. We don't know the first records they bought. We don't know what they had for breakfast. We don't know their names, their ages, their favourite colour or their shoe size. We don't know if they can completely close their nostrils...

Headway with DVS1 (3 Hour set)
Friday 2nd March 2018


We’re delighted to announce that we've finally managed to bring someone we’ve been after for many years to Dundee for the first time, one of the best techno DJs around - DVS1! Immersed in the heydays of the '90s Midwest rave scene, DVS1 (Zak Khutoretsky) has gained a highly respected reputation for his versatile skills, infectious energy and physical power behind the decks...
