A tip of the hat, then, to Colours and their unstoppable array of incarnations that still pepper the clubbing calendar after a staggering 22 years in the business.
Streetrave harks back to the very first tentative steps that Colours took when it was spawned in Ayr back in 1989.
For their birthday celebration at The Arches, they've roped in some seminal house music names.
James Zabiela is the Southampton DJ whose tech house mixes have been filling major dancefloors since 2000, and joining him in the club's main arch will be Berlin duo M.A.N.D.Y, who peddle a distinctly funky strand of techno, plus Colours resident Giovanni Ferri.
In the dance arch prepare to be transported back to the early days of rave culture with non-stop old school rave tunes from Shades of Rhythm and The Bassheads, who'll both be performing live.

Hillhead Book Club is the charming, indie-leaning former cinema on Vinicombe Street that won our hearts when it opened last year.
This, their third bring-your-own-booze event, looks to be the best yet: they've only gone and booked Optimo – Glasgow's premier purveyors of quality tunes.
The premise is simple: turn up at the Book Club at 7pm with a cargo, grab a seat and wait for things to kick off. Judging by last time, and with the addition of Optimo's Twitch and Wilkes, that won't take long.
l BYOB 3, Hillhead Book Club, tonight, 7pm – 12am, free.
In the last 25 years few have done more for British music than Alan McGee. He founded Creation Records, helped launch the careers of Oasis, Primal Scream, The Jesus and Mary Chain, The Libertines and Mogwai among others, and ran the international club night Death Disco (not to be confused with The Arches' monthly electro romp) in his spare time.
Now that he's mostly withdrawn from the music industry, he prefers revel in its misfortunes.
He recently caused a fuss by stating in an interview that the Sony warehouse fire which destroyed thousands of records and pushed several independent labels to the brink of collapse was "funny".
Maybe not as funny as if he accidentally dropped a warm pint over the contents of his own record box.
Not that I would ever want that to happen, you understand..
