CLUBS – Double act double up!

DO Optimo's Twitch and Wilkes ever stop?

Loading Comments

When they're not DJing as a unit or individually they're cropping up in collaborative projects.

The latest of which is Doubleheart, a duo consisting of Twitch and Edinburgh DJ Neil Landstrumm. Despite having released three EPs in as many years, this showcase, at Make Do, in Hope Street, is their first live show.

Theirs is a heavy, hypnotic sound: Latin rhythms, thundering basslines and wailing sirens punctuate the tracks, which also carry a strong Jamaican influence.

As well as playing live Twitch chips in with a DJ set, as does Glaswegian producer Dam Mantle and label-mates Ben Martin and Sam of Vitamins.

Tonight the same venue hosts Make Up or Break Up, an early Valentine's party with a difference. Expect Afrobeat, hip hop, synth grooves and hypnotic visuals, with the proceeds helping to fund the Art School's degree shows.

l High Sheen Label Showcase, Saturday, Make Do, 95 Hope Street, 11pm-3am, £5

l Make Up or Break Up, tonight, Make Do, 95 Hope Street, 11pm-3am, £7

Disco heaven

AT their weekly Organic Grooves party, New York duo In Flagranti brought together electronic disco, punk funk and contemporary dance to send the city's hipsters crazy every Friday night from 1995 until 2003.

Ten years later they're still at it, just they get around a bit more.

Tomorrow night they team up with don of disco Billy Woods in SWG3's Poetry Club for a cosmic disco love-in. Team this with The Berkeley Suite's Oddio on Saturday night and Thunder Disco at the Subbie on Sunday for a dream dance weekend.

l In Flagranti feat. Billy Woods, tomorrow, The Poetry Club, SWG3, 100 Eastvale Place, 10pm-2am, £10

Milk shakes

A cold-hearted serving of Milk this month (it's billed as an "Anti Valentine's night: whatever that means) is balanced out by another cracking line-up at this gig-cum-club hybrid.

Playing live are Dundonians Make Sparks, Edinburgh's The OK Social Club and the Detour boys, who'll be spinning indie tunes alongside (hopefully) toe-curling nu-metal and pop- punk – as is their wont at their own nights.

l Milk Anti-Valentine's feat Detour, Wednesday, Flat 0/1, Bath Street, 8.30pm-3am, £4
