FREE ENTRY: Styxx 1 w/ Kenny Campbell, Foundry, Data Protection Act, Dave N/V
On the darkest day of the year, cross over to the other side . . .
A new night catering to the darker, harder end of the techno spectrum, we are aiming to bring the vibe and sounds of Berlin’s dankest parties to Glasgow’s basements. For our first event, we have local legend Kenny Campbell (of Pitch Dark Records and Bone Skippers infamy) topping the bill – Kenny has been instrumental in keeping Scotland’s techno scene thriving, via his consistently banging label and also his own seriously heavy productions and remixes.
Back in the summer Kenny delivered a storming set for the gents behind one of our favorite local nights Foundry, so it made sense to put them together again and see what destruction they come up with together. Foundry have been booking some seriously impressive acts for their monthly La Cheetah shindigs and always rock the Lunar Module whenever they play, on top of regularly putting out kick-ass mixes themselves. These guys never disappoint, so we are honored to have them on board for the evening.
Data Protection Act is the alias of up-and-coming local DJ Keir Milne, who has recently supported such luminaries as Keepsakes, Post Scriptum and Christina Sealey from industrial legends Orphx. As a resident, Keir is determined to bring to Glasgow the sort of hard-edged techno that he regularly travels abroad for, and to recreate the atmosphere of the sweatiest, darkest raves out there.
Our other resident is NULL / VOID’s Dave, who along with his N / V partner Marc has been running the monthly industrial-techno night since July 2017, indulging in the more clanging, mechanized end of electronica along with the classic eras of industrial. In a short span of time, the night has hosted a variety of guests ranging from Optimo’s JD Twitch to goth icon Qual and young Scottish upstarts like Duellist, Ben Techy and Sluhg. Expect he sort of nose-bleed, ear-piercing techno normally reserved for N / V’s rowdiest climaxes.
For this first event we are keeping entry costs FREE for the whole evening, and we also have a 4AM licence so get down to Broadcast on Friday 21st for a trip into the techno underworld. . . .
