Stage set for star DJs

AS superstar DJ crossovers go, they don't really come much bigger than Chase and Status.

Loading Comments

The London duo were unlikely Radio 1 Stage headliners at last year's rock-heavy Reading and Leeds festivals, highlighting their appeal beyond fresh-faced pop ravers and bedroom electro producers.

They'll take over the O2 Academy on Saturday night for a DJ set (that means no live band: soz, converted rockers) that promises to be high on the banging scale - ­support comes from DJs Rage and Kove.

Tomorrow night, the same venue has Dutch trance hero Dash Berlin peddling his euphoric, Alice Deejay-inspired wares. He'll be joined for a special live performance by singer and collaborator Chris Madin.

l Dash Berlin, tomorrow, O2 Academy, 7pm-11pm, £24.

l Chase and Status DJ Set, Saturday, O2 Academy, 9pm-2am, £22.50.

Numbers up

NUMBERS' first party of 2014 plus an intimate Sub Club session multiplied by amazing guests equals things are going to kick off tomorrow night.

Resident Spencer is joined by Brooklyn's Galcher Lustwerk, maker of trippy deep house jams that take the listener along on lyrical journeys.

There's also Midland, whose belter Trace was one of the tunes of 2013, making his Subbie debut.

Saturday has London's George Fitzgerald at Subculture for the first time, while an unusually busy coming Wednesday sees Ben UFO, one third of Hessle Audio and one of the country's finest selectors, headlining Sub Rosa.

l Numbers with Midland, tomorrow, Sub Club, 11pm-3am, £10.

l Subculture with George Fitzgerald, Saturday, Sub Club, 11pm-3am, £10.

l Sub Rosa with Ben UFO, Wednesday, Sub Club, 11pm-3am, £8.

Ibiza memories

YOU'LL have heard Breach's tune Jack - I want your body everybody wants your body so let's jack - a million times.

The seductive, bass-heavy jam was one of the major sounds of last summer, so prepare to relive those Ibiza memories all over again tomorrow night at Make Do.

Support comes from enigmatic banger merchant Route 94.

Fast forward to Wednesday, when The Arches has the profane and profoundly brilliant Danny Brown live onstage, accompanied by a series of short videos as part of the Glasgow Music and Film Festival.

After that, it's midweek club night ShangriLa with London nu-R&B producer Applebottom.

l Breach and Route 94, tomorrow, Make Do, 11pm-3am, £12.

l Danny Brown, Wednesday, The Arches, 7pm-10pm, £16.

l ShangriLa with Applebottom, Wednesday, The Arches, 11pm-3am, £5.

Film festival fun

YOUR final dose of Wednesday action is at The Art School, which has the launch of Cargo Camera… Action!

Part of Glasgow Film Festival, this unique night has collaborations between King Creosote and director Virginia Heath, local arts collective 85A, and Africa in Motion.

After all the arty stuff is out the way, the 85A DJs take over, spinning eclectic tunes until the wee hours.

l Cargo Camera… Action! Launch Party, Wednesday, The Art School, 8pm-1am, £5.
