Edinburgh Gig Guide Vol 1.

Fresher's week has passed, everyone is hungover, tired and looking forward to settling down into the strict routine that uni brings. However, here in beautiful Edinburgh there's a whole host of massive parties in the coming month that promise to keep uni attendance and grades at an all time low. We are truly being spoilt for talent...  

Fresh off the back of releasing his debut album, SBTRKT (pronounced subtract) brings his gorgeous future garage/post dub/electro mess to Cabaret Voltaire. It's really hard to describe his style, far easier to go check out his album. Check out 'Trials Of The Past', 'Never Never' and my favourite tune from his album...

SBTRKT - Pharoahs    

Zed Bias - Caves  30th September 
On the same night as SBTRKT, garage/dubstep producer Zed Bias smashes The Caves. Not much info has been released about this gig yet but if his past productions are anything to go by this night'll be special. This guy's making garage funky... 

Zed Bias - Been Here Before 

 Gasoline Dance Machine Launch Night With Special Guests The C90s 1st October   
The C90s are two london based producers who have been making waves in the disco seen for about two years now. On soundcloud their style is described as Disco Club Cosmic House, i haven't got a clue what that is but just listen to their remixes then go down this night, they also do a monthly mix which are always unreal...

Now there are two unreally large gigs coming to Edinburgh in early October and this is the first. Annie Mac needs no introduction, she has been the queen of new electronic talent for a number of years now, she's done pretty much everything that DJs aspire to do and she's done it all without becoming a producer. Accompanying her is bassline monster Fake Blood who released his brand new Deep Red EP recently. An absolutely essential gig. 

The second unreal gig hitting Edinburgh in October again needs very little introdcution. James Zabiela has been on top of the techno game for ages now, we saw him at Exit Festival in the summer and although i'm not really into the techno scene he absolutlely blew my mind, incorporating some sort of effects keytar (?) into his sets on the build ups. Crazy. Maya Jane Coles is an upcoming producer who has been producing some outrageously good tunes as of late, can't wait for this night...

Souloco Presents Subb-An 21st October

Souloco bring Subb-An to the capital, with releases on labels we adore such as Crosstown Rebels and Hot Creations, his deep sound will destroy Cab Vol, big look, Musika residents Jamie Mckenzie and Kirk Douglas, alongside Chris Graham provide support.

De-Signer - Suicide Girl (Robin Porter & Subb-An Remix)

This list is by no means definitive and i'll keep posting Edinburgh gig guides at the beginning of every month or so, so keep glued to the Juicy! blog for updates...
