LAST time Ferry Corsten played a club in Glasgow, it was an intimate charity gig in Karbon that only a select few were invited to attend.
His much-anticipated return is, mercifully for his many fanatical followers, going to be somewhat bigger.
On Saturday the Dutch dance deity takes over the O2 Academy as part of his Full On Ferry tour.
Corsten is credited with creating the Dutch trance sound which started a revolution in club culture, and is consistently ranked among the world's top DJs.
Expect a breathtaking marathon set on the night, alongside back to back sets from Aly & Fila, Bart Claessen and homegrown DJs David Frobes and William Daniel.
Before all of that, Ibiza resident and Radio 1 DJ Judge Jules makes an appearance at The Tunnel tomorrow night, kicking off what should be an enormous weekend for trance devotees.
l Full On Ferry: Ferry Corsten and Friends, O2 Academy, Saturday, 9pm – late, £21
l Judge Jules, The Tunnel, tomorrow, 11pm – 3am, £10
BRAZIL'S foremost reggae and dub crew go by the name DigitalDubs, and Glaswegians Chungo Bungo and Mungo's Hi-Fi have managed to convince their main man Scientista to cross the Atlantic (to the birthplace of Babylon oppression, no less) and show us how it's done in Latin America.
DigitalDubs' latest album, #1, features reggae legends such as Ranking Joe and Earl 16 alongside young Brazilian vocalists, and the result is undoubtedly going to have Mungo's supreme soundsystem stretching eardrums to the limit.
A decidedly calmer affair is Sunday Dub Club, which takes place at Dukes Bar on Old Dumbarton Road around Sunday teatime.
There's a cheap and delicious soul food menu, Red Stripe on offer and reggae, dub and dancehall from special guest Kokoro.
l Mungo's Hi-Fi and Chungo Bungo, Chambre 69, tomorrow, 11pm – 3am, £6
l Sunday Dub Club, Dukes Bar, Sunday, 8pm – 12am, free
PREMIER hipster magazine Vice is famous for its monthly issue launch parties, which routinely see the East London pub, The Old Blue Last, shaking in a frenzy of abrasive rock and/or glitchy electronic noise.
This month the concept is being rolled out nationwide, with Glasgow and Brighton getting arguably the best deal.
At Nice N Sleazy (where this week we took in so-bad-it's-amazing movie The Room at Second City's cult bad film night and the excellent Withered Hand on Record Shop Day) tomorrow there's live euphoric lo-fi electro from Manchester's D/R/U/G/S, blippy synthetic soul courtesy of London's Becoming Real and blissed-out electronica from Glaswegian Cur$es, aka Niall Morris.
