This week, it’s a Glasgow special of Residents’ Hour. The internationally recognised Sub Club has built its legacy as a prime nightlife establishment, with a mighty 30-year-long guarantee of raucous fun with every party. Dive into a warm-up mix from Sub Club’s very own Harri & Domenic, and read on for Domenic’s history lesson on one of clubland’s key institutions.
“Sub Club was born back in April 1987, as a club night at Lucifer’s in Glasgow by Graham Wilson and Greg Macleod. The scene in Glasgow has always been strong, especially at the moment. There are loads of great nights and really talented producers, DJs and labels. There are plenty of places to go to hear all sorts of music – from electronic to reggae, to disco, to funk, and so on. If you’re a music aficionado with broad taste and a love for drinking and dancing, Glasgow is perfect for you.
“Sub Club always attracts a good crowd with loads of familiar faces. The club staff are great, even when Harri is being a nightmare. He always has at least one diva moment, and always steals the coldest beers. Along with its amazing sound system, it’s one of the best clubs I’ve ever played in – and it’s ten minutes from my house.”
“The way that Harri and I start our DJ sets can differ week to week. We tend to start slow and warm, and build it up until about 2am. After that, it can go through the gears and get pretty banging, or we drop it back down and build it all over again. Most weeks, we try to change it subtly in one way or another.
“This mix, recorded from a few weeks ago in the club, is just a small snapshot of the particular night. It starts off beatless, then moving into some electro and broken beat tracks. Eventually, as the club fills up, it builds into a more 4/4-ified house groove.
“Sub Club has served us well. Harri is now in big demand in the over 70s male model circuit. I’m just trying to stay out of trouble with my kids.”
This weekend marks Sub Club’s Relaunch, with Harri & Domenic paying tomorrow night. Check full details of the weekend’s antics here. Keep eyes peeled for the next episode of Residents’ Hour – directly from Frankfurt.
