Certain high-end consumables such as whisky, wine and cheese are said to improve with age, undergoing many complex processes to enhance and improve the flavour,
colour and appearance. In the same vein, DJ Vadim has defiantly and soulfully been fermenting and malting his global musical elixir for coming on 20 years now, and can
well and truly be described as vintage.
Model Aeroplanes are a four-piece band from Dundee consisting of Rory (vocals, guitar), Grant (lead guitar, vocals), Ben (bass) and Kieran (drums, vocals).
The band have been together in various incarnations since they were 13 years old and call themselves friends for life.
It seems like only recently we were talking about our 10th Birthday but here we are again! It gives us great pleasure to announce that for our 11th Birthday we welcome one of the
world's most in-demand and leading techno DJs to Headway for the first time - Ben Sims!
When all is said and done, whichever role Gilles is performing – DJ, broadcaster, producer, compiler, label boss or plain old record collector – the music is always the bottom line.
The French legend will be dropping by Dundee to perform. If you've had the chance of catching this man live, please imagine that energy in a contained space like the Rooms.
If you haven't had the chance, well, do not miss this. Ctrl have never been so excited to see an act in the Reading Rooms. And we're very proud to be the ones to showcase him.
A Night With... is back and is racking up yet more amazing DJ talent to blow your minds down the Reading Rooms. A Guy Called Gerald, DJ Pierre, Farley Jackmaster Funk, Optimo and Tyree Cooper have all graced the decks at the night so far. Next up it is the turn of UK DJ legend Andrew Weatherall and his cohort Sean Johnston to bring his latest DJ venture A Love From Outer Space to town to take things to yet another level.
