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...

Nightvision presents The EATS EVERYTHING Scotland Tour
Saturday 3rd March 2018


Few producers in the history of dance music have made such a rapid and far-reaching impact on the electronic music scene as Eats Everything aka Daniel Pearce. This larger-than-life beat maker is at the forefront of a swathe of talented producers to come out of the West Country Bass Epicentre known as Bristol, defining an entirely new strand of forward thinking underground music.

Book Club • DJ BONE • St. Patrick's Day
Saturday 17th March 2018


Only went and booked DJ Bone! From the home of techno - DETROIT, to the home of pehs - DUNDEE! To some he is the champion of the underground. Others see him for the first time and ask the person dancing like crazy next to them, "Where did THIS guy come from?" An absolute wizard, with the fastest fingers we’ve ever seen on a mixer, this is going to be something special.

Headway with LEON VYNEHALL (3 Hour set)
Friday 6th April 2018


Leon Vynehall has already proved himself to be that rare thing – an artist with his own agenda rather than a producer aping the sound of the day. To date his off kilter sounds have come in the form of EPs on labels like 3024, Rush Hour and Running Back, and have been carefully crafted things, layered with musicality whilst never straying too far from a infectious groove.

RRP present EROL ALKAN (All Night Long) ‘To the Rhythm’
Friday 13th April 2018

GJ Promotions present CAST (Doors 7pm)
Saturday 2nd June 2018


Labelled ‘The Who of the 90s’, Noel Gallagher once described watching Cast play live as “a religious experience.” From playing bass in the legendary Northern band The La’s, John Power (guitar/vocals), Liam ‘Skin’ Tyson (lead guitar - also playing with Robert Plant) and Keith O’Neill (drums) are joined by former La's member Jay Lewis on bass. Cast reunited in 2012 with original producer John Leckie (Stone Roses, Radiohead, The Fall) to release a new album ‘Troubled Times’, their first studio album in over ten years.
