Born out of a desire to bring Sub Club’s ethos of inclusivity and uncompromisingly good music from the underground to the wider world, Sub Club Soundsystem returns this weekend for its fifth year with one of its most stellar line-ups yet.
Glasgow’s celebrated arts and events venue BAaD will play host to some of the biggest and most exciting new names in dance music; alongside some old favourites and a whole host of Glasgow born talent.
On Saturday the 24th Glasgow’s East End will gear up to host iconic disco legends Horse Meat Disco. Born out of a love of New Yorks heady 80’s club scene, the London four-piece have built a reputation for throwing the some of worlds most unmissable parties.
Joining them is one of dance music’s most exciting new names, Jayda G. Fresh off the heels of the release of her acclaimed album ‘Significant Changes’, the Canadian DJ and producer is known for sets that are as fun as they are eclectic, bringing a fusion of house, funk and soul from all eras to the dancefloor.
Following the release of his latest album Sinner-KDJ48, Detroit house hero Moodymann is the final act set to tear up BAaD’s courtyard on Saturday with his trademark brand of dark, dusty grooves.
Sunday is armed with a line-up of as equally high a calibre. Peggy Gou, the Korean DJ and producer taking over the dance music world with her flawless productions; fearless, genre-defying sets; and army of dedicated fans, is bringing ‘Gou-mania’ to Glasgow’s Barras.
Joining Gou is disco-house trailblazer and head honcho of the notorious Running Back label Gerd Janson, as well as German deep house veteran Henrik Shwarz.
On Sunday BAaD will also be opening its backyard space to a huge host of Glasgow’s own up and coming talent including Lezzer Quest, Rebecca Vasmant, Ribeka and WSHOM.
With an incredible set design by Glasgow artist Shaun Murphy transforming the Barras into an ‘icy Mars cavern’, Sub Club Soundsystem 2019 is set to be truly out of this world.
