The first to do so is Korsakoff, the Dutch hardcore sensation who headlined The Arches' last Hogmanay celebration.
It's a sad truth that she's one of the few female enormo-DJs – last year's DJ Mag top 100 list featured precisely zero women – but on Saturday she headlines what is sure to be an absolute rammy of a night.
Also on the sprawling bill is Italian dark hardcore specialist Nightmare DJ, local boy Chimera, Amsterdam's Chosen Few and fellow Dutchmen Edge of Darkness.
l Back To The Future, The Arches, Saturday, 10pm-3am, £15
IT'S surely no coincidence that Tale Of Us, the headliners of this latest watery escapade from Sub Club-based Sensu, have a sprawling back story.
Carmine Conte was born in Toronto, Matteo Milleri in New York.
Both moved to Milan in their infancy and it was there that they met and formed the bonds that led them to Berlin, where they're now based.
Their music takes in pop, house, disco, rock and everything in between. Expect straight-up dancefloor filling jams, low-slung moving ambient tracks and adventurous, abstract compositions.
As is always the case with these soirees, the Waverley will be full to capacity for the river-based portion of the night but you can still catch Tale of Us and Sensu themselves back at the Subbie from 11pm until the wee hours.
l Sensu Boat Party 2, The Waverley, departing from Glasgow Science Centre, tomorrow, 7pm – 11pm, sold out. Afterparty at Sub Club, 11pm – 3am
GLASGOW'S online clubbing journal EQTV's jaunts into the real world have been as discerning as you'd expect fromt he electronica connoisseurs.
They've previously brought Berliners Scuba and Cosmin TRG to the wider attention they undoubtedly deserve, and this time round it's London based label Wolf Music in the spotlight.
Their roster of artists include the excellent Greymatter, Medlar and KLR – all proponents of deep, soulful house. Medlar headlines tomorrow, alongside the label's head honchos Matt and Stu who'll be spinning disco, house and no doubt a few choice cuts from their protégés.
l EQTV presents Wolf Music, The Berkeley Suite, tomorrow, 11pm- 3am, £5
IN THE late 70s and early 80s New York City was on the verge of collapse: destitute, dirty and dangerous, it had some of the highest crime rates in the world.
At the same time, the best music in the world was emerging from its chaos: disco and hip-hop were born in Manhattan and The Bronx, and The Ramones took punk to raucous new levels.
Meanwhile, artists like Talking Heads, Liquid Liquid (from whom Optimo take their name) and Blondie were regulars at legendary clubs like CBGBs. It's this period that Houndin' The Streets celebrates, with Martin Law and guest Derek Smith playing songs from and inspired by those times.
