The RPZ Radio show is run weekly by DJ Hushpuppy. RPZ show is a showcase for both old sounds and new - a weekly crate-digging session traversing cosmic, new-wave, boogie, classic house, funk, soundtracks, psych, hi-NRG, acid, primitive electonica, synth pop as well as some slices of serious muscular digital bass. A long-term member of the Glasgow clubbing scene, Hushpuppy has djed across pretty much the entire spectrum of the city's clubbing community. A rabid music fan, he has slipped in the side door and thrown down some mind-bogglingly diverse vibes for the likes of Club Noir, Divine, One More Tune, Menergy, Melting Pot, Thunder Disco Club & Optimo. For eight years he worked with fellow digital sound freaks Hifi Sean, Bonjour Boi & Jackson Stars at the helm of the Art Schools legendary thursday night future-shock clubbing institution RPZ (Record Playerz), putting the Art School firmly on the cutting edge of clubbing with an unrivalled, dazzling visual treatment and genre-bending soundtrack. Currently Hushpuppy is keeping himself busy - as newly recruited third wheel with the KILLER KITSCH crew at the buff club, as a monthly resident (for the sixth year running) at DEATH DISCO, as rolling resident at Snafu club Aberdeen's disco phreek party HOT CITY and bar-vibing along-side THUNDER DISCO CLUB's Korbin Dallas for west end basement sessions at The Lansdowne. His skills and taste have seen him play with the cream of contemporary dance acts over the years, having warmed up and partied at live shows for Simian Mobile Disco, Midnight Juggernauts, Underworld, Den Haan, Hercules and Love Affair, Siriusmo and even having the balls to play AFTER the Bloody Beetroots live!

Berkeley Suite & Ballroom. Friday 18th May 11-3 £5
Glasgow's very own Gods From Outer Space touch down at the Berkeley Suite to distribute their manifesto of inter-galactic awesomeness.
Den Haan are a totally unique and by now somewhat legendary feature of Glasgow's electronic music scene. A couple of italo and hi-nrg obsessed dudes who between them have cooked up an utterly intoxicating catalogue of glistening and glorious slabs of pan-galactic wonder.
Its been some time since the duo played live in the city, so its a genuine treat to be able to bring their frankly dazzling live show - a glorious mass of synths, lights and bespoke projections - to the Berkeley Suite for a Music Please event.
Accompanying Den Haan will be familiar Music Please co-horts Hushpuppy and Joe Crogan. Hushpuppy, no stranger to italo sounds and cosmic beats (the Arty's RPZ was the original Glasgow home of Italo Disco and mega-gay hi-nrg excess) and will be spinning an 80's fixated super disco sound mix of boogie, italo, freestyle, street-beat, hi-nrg and cosmic magnificence.
Joe Crogan - visualiser, artist, performer and all round positive dude - will be throwing eye-googling high-contrast projections up the basement walls to keep your eyes entertained and your brains buzzing both before and after the Den Haan live set.
