Another week, another belter

Phew… I feel like I’ve just caught my breath after last weekend’s mammoth Fiasco. It seemed like half the Glasgow house music scene turned up at the Brunswick to check DJ Mes out, and I can guarantee that nobody was disappointed. As always, pictures and videos are up on the Fiasco Facebook Group. Here is a sample of DJ Mes and the Fiasco crowd rockin’ out;

But alas, another week, another belter. December is fast upon us and the end of the month means two things in Glasgow, both crucial to keeping the wheels of this fine city rolling; Payday and Pressure. This month sees Slam celebrating their 10th birthday, with the best Pressure lineup I can remember. The legendary Carl Craig and relative newcomer Boys Noize will be keeping it all things Techno, and with DJ Yoda giving it his usual one-of-a-kind audio-visual performance, who knows whats going to happen. Throw in Damian Lazarus and Radioslave too, and you know its gonna be one helluva good night.

At this point I feel obligated to mention the Pioneer DVJ-1000 showcase that Yoda made a few years ago. No point explaining it, just watch and try and figure out what is going on. Beats me, but one thing I know is this guy is an absolute maestro.

So, back to Pressure… My hot tip for the night is Jesse Rose, who’s ‘Made to Play’ label is gaining ground as one of the hottest new tech-house outfits out there. Jesse also made it onto the front page of IDJ magazine last month, demonstrating that he is not only getting recognition in the underground scene, but also breaking his musical agenda out into the mainstream. Check out the ‘Made to Play’ podcast for some hot mixes from label buddies Oliver $ and Jamie Anderson, and surf on over to their website at for 10 minutes of utter utter confusion. Once you are done there, get the Jesse Rose – Live At Focus mix from last year for some instant gratification.

If you haven’t already got your ticket for this months Pressure, then you are probably out of luck unless you can pick one up for £50-£75 on eBay, get lucky on Gumtree, or chance it outside the doors on Friday. The tickets were all gone in a week which is understandable for such a momentous event.

Don’t despair though, if you can’t make it down on Friday, Slam is putting out a special 10th birthday mix CD on the cover of December’s Mixmag which is in stores now. I haven’t heard it yet, but I have it on good authority that it scores 5/5 OOFTS! Plus there is always Pressure next month, and the month after that: this particular Glasgow institution is not going anywhere.
