Another fruitful week of clubbing is in store on Valentine's week in the capital, with plenty of love-in's forthcoming on the Cowgate and elsewhere.
Midnight Bass brings forth it's second party of the week in the capital on Tuesday with a grime takeover featuring Glasgow specialist Rapture 4D. A collaborator with genre heads like Plastician and Flirta D, and having released on the likes of Terrorhythm and Scotch Bonnet, this is sure to go off alongside Big Alf, Sosi, and JI2001. Drum and Bass sounds all night long in room 2 with Bower and KATARINA.
Heavy Flow return with their unique club night to the Mash House with special guests Raw Silk, alongside support across two rooms from some of the city's most promising female selectors. A club night making a real difference with its inclusivity, and with 100% of proceeds going towards Sanitree, the group tackling period poverty in countries like India and beyond. This impetus alongside selections expected within the realms of garage, breaks, disco, and house, sees Heavy Flow as one of our picks of the week in the city!
New heaters ressies hypnotikk arrive on the scene with a promising booking in Ahadadream. A purveyor of Eastern club rhythms, the London-based artist is built for the Sneaky's sweatbox with his collection of percussive weapons at the ready. Another mammoth act taking the reins at Sneaky's as their billings continue to excite with each passing week.
Signal welcomes Dr Banana on his tour to Sneaky's for a two step showdown with one of the leading acts to come out of the recent UKG revival. With consistent and ever-credible releases coming off his DRBAGAIN imprint working with the likes of K-Lone and DJ Deller, and an impressive Boiler Room appearance with Interplanetary Criminal recently under his sleeve, another special night in Sneak's is promised as a precursor to the weekend.
Palidrone celebrate 4 years of prominence in the city as they welcome one of the UK's brightest acts in Parris (Wisdom Teeth) to the Mash House. A man who has worked with acts like Call Super and Minor Science, as well as recently dropping a stellar debut album on his own imprint 'can you feel the sun', his genre fluid sound is sure to capture the imagination this coming Friday at the Cowgate club.
603 bring together a selection of Edinburgh genre bending selectors sure to travel through breaks, techno, garage, house, hip-hop, & more. Local hitters George IV, B3HRA, Felix Angelo, & Fusion make up a promising line-up in what is shaping up to be one of the more interesting bills to take on the Liquid Rooms in recent weeks.
Funk fuellers AOTN return to the city with Sam Don (Free Association & Netil Radio) and their own Euan Fryer. Don is an avid record collector in the London scene that has shared bills with scene heads like Maurice Fulton, Hunee, and Glenn Underground, and is sure to spell up a groove ridden potion on the Sneaky's faithful this Friday. Expect soulful disco & funk all night long.
Prosumer's Heyday returns with Joe Delon for the queer party that buoys between eclectic house, electro, & disco charms. A definitive head in shaping the sound of Berghain's Panorama Bar, Prosumer consistently brings his own inspiring nouse to his sets and is sure to raise hell with the Lisbon-based Joe Delon who can meld anything from garage to old school disco burners. Delon has played all across Europe at rooms like Spaced in London, and Madrid's El Cuerpo Del Disco.
Irish block-rocking selector Shampain (Rinse France/ G-Town Records) returns to Edinburgh once more. Seemingly becoming a frequent stop off point for the Galway gunner, his show at the Mash House falls in between a string of UK & Irish shows running through until March. Anyone who is familiar will know what to expect from this guy. High energy techno all night long with support from Tais-Toi, SMIFF, and more across two rooms.
