Friend of the show Ian Hall will be putting together a guest mix for us to play. Ean alongside partner in crime Twonko and residents Smiddy, Galaxian, Jan and Peacock are responsible for one of Glasgow's newest and most respected club nights. Void.
Since Void's initial inception at the beginning of this year, throughout it's short period of time they have consistently strived to bring to Glasgow some of the finest, most progressive dj’s and producers from the all over the world from Detroit techno and electro (D.I.E's very own DJ Maaco) to squelching acid house (Perseus Traxx) to deep, soul searching minimalism from Poland (Echoplex) as well as providing a platform for some of the most proficient local acts to show off their skills from Thunder Disco Club to Konx-Om-Pax to members of the All Caps crew.
Void's sound palette broadens far beyond those horizons as they encompass all of the great facets of music from Hip-Hop to Italo-Disco to Coldwave to Funk and further afield. It doesn't cater toward a specific genre, it is a celebration of music.
Fascinatingly almost each show has had a theme attached to it. From February's fantastically titled "Transmission From The Outer Atmosphere" (the poster has what appears to be spacemen floating aimlessly in space as they approach the sun) to March's "Set The Controls For The Event Horizon" (the poster gives you the impression that you are peering through an hexagonal window of a star ship as it enters warp speed). Being a big fan of science-fiction, the development of ideas/concepts/theories, the enhancement of technology and looking toward the future, I feel as if Void are wanting to combine both energy and matter so that they can transport us to the end of the cosmos where nebulas and clusters of galaxies limitlessly expand beyond your line of sight, whilst our minds meld and melt into the seeping gateways of time and space.17:00 - 19:06
