events // Subcity at Freshers' Week 05

Freshers' Week Flyer

Freshers' Week 2005 sees the return of Subcity Radio to the decks of Glasgow's clubs. On a mission to expose the freshers' to as many new genres as musically possible, we will be hosting Subcity's HiFi in Jim's Bar, QMU, from Tuesday to Thursday. On Friday night we up-sticks and move down to Deep 6 in the GUU for the Freshers' Party 05.

Tuesday | Jim's Bar, QMU | 9pm - 2am Tuesday is all about house, in the broadest sense. Ranging from US garage (as in the kind of stuff underground disco legend Larry Levan played at his infamous NYC club the Paradise Garage), to the tougher house sound of Chicago and deep, moody techno from Detroit, right through to contemporary grooves and twists from Europe and America.

Wednesday | Jim's Bar, QMU | 9pm - 2am If Tuesday was brought to you by the reassuring 4/4 beat, Wednesday is brought to you by the people who reacted to such self-assurance by twisting it into unrecognisable and often unsettling forms. From warped soundscapes and downtempo beats, to 2-step dub, glitch and breaks mixed by DJs who know how to make a dance floor rock.

Thursday | Jim's Bar, QMU | 9pm - 2am Thursday is roots day with bowel-shaking b-lines, Jamaican dancehall riddims, funk, hip-hop and bashment - delivered with attitude and irresistible energy.

Friday | Deep 6, GUU | 9pm - 2am All hints of musical snobbishness go out of the window on Friday as Subcity go into party mode, featuring some of Glasgow's most loved party DJs playing classic disco, hip-hop, funk and soul anthems and a few surprises guaranteed to get the party started - Subcity style.
