With the ambient mist surrounding it clearing ever so slightly once again, you're invited to the first transmission from the cradle of 2017. Antwerp, Cuba, Lier, Malta and Zagreb will all be added to the musical map this evening in an episode filled with the usual ethereal ambient, a choral Drake lament, Mica Levi-sampling electro and even a Berlin School deep cut among other sounds.
This episode of Natural Light features an interview with Canadian producer/vocalist Marie Davidson. Marie is signed to Minimal Wave's Cititrax imprint, and was kind enough to meet me in the bar of The Flying Duck before her performance last week, and you can hear us chatting about her music, and touring life and club culture, among other things.
Marie Davidson has consistently been releasing her unique brand of cold, industrial pop music since 2013, and with the release of 2016's Adieux Au Dancefloor, she has brought pounding techno to the forefront of her sound, and in her live sets channels otherworldly energy and sensuality.

The freshers hangover is over. We’re back at the Art School taking over the Vic Bar for a night that will make your eardrums sweat. Acquaint yourself with our DJs for the night ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Nice Pipes [DJ Kevin] ~ subcity.org/shows/nicepipes Cowbell fanatic and nicest of pipes, Hannah, will be bringing the sweet female attitude. Get down early to see Kev’s eclectic taste take a slide towards garage. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Loose Joints DJs ~ subcity.org/shows/loosejoints Fresh to Subcity this year, the Loose Joints trio have been cooking up a storm as one of the most versatile and exciting new troupes and event promoters on the scene. This is their recipe for a good time: 3 x DJs (Dylan, Chester, Fraser) 3 x can do attitude 1080 x loose joints (a medical fact) 1x bag of mixed records - mixed on high heat. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Beat Beneath ~ subcity.org/shows/beatbeneath You can’t go over it. You can’t go around it. We’re going underground with Subcity icon, techno-nice-guy and all round great selector, Simon, who’ll take us to a deep, dark and heavy finale. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ (Don’t) sweat it. When you know you know.

Subcity's website is the backbone of all its operations. Everything we do is broadcasted directly from subcity.org so we need to keep it up to date and fast. Get onboard and you will have the opportunity to influence where thousands of people click their mouse and how they engage with their favourite shows.
You'll need to be able to develop new features for the website, or even new websites. Check out our guide to see what we're capable of doing in a few short weeks.
Grounding in HTML, CSS, Python and Django is key. Knowledge of using and administering Linux alongside Git version control is desired, but not necessary. Most importantly, we need someone who is self motivated to find the solutions to their own problems.
This freshers' week we are looking for more team members for certain areas of our station. Dedication, creativity and interpersonal skills are all essential and a knowledge of the station and our output is recommended, but you don’t have to be a student to apply. However, it should be expected that team members attend the weekly team meeting and help with running events on the night.
Applications are open until midnight on Sunday the 25th of September
