It's the build-up to tomorrow’s Sensu Boat Party.

The twice-yearly one helmed by Sensu, the Glaswegian techno fivesome made up of Junior, Barry Price, Paul Ingram, Cesco Ferri and Alan Belshaw, is always one of the most anticipated parties of the season.

And tomorrow’s jaunt down the Clyde – which is captained by Mano Le Tough, the eclectic DJ from the Irish seaside village of Greystones – is no exception.

Now based in Berlin, Le Tough’s underground house and techno chops are undisputed. He arrives in Glasgow straight off the back of a show at Ibiza’s Pacha, while his recent remix of Phil Kieran’s Solar Storm has been winning serious plaudits for its emotive, hyper-hypnotic dreaminess. He’ll also be appearing at the afterparty back at the Subbie, alongside The Drifter and Sensu resident Ferri.

• Sensu Boat Party with Mano Le Tough, tomorrow, The Riverside Museum, 7pm – 11pm, sold out

• Afterparty, tomorrow, Sub Club, 11pm – 3am, £12

Kelburn Garden Party 2017

North Ayrshire isn’t a region best known for its partying opportunities. But this weekend, the fields on the outskirts of Largs are set to reverberate to the sound of banging drum and bass, house and techno as the annual Garden Party returns to the genteel grounds of Kelburn Castle. This year’s highlights include a collaboration between legendary local crews Optimo and Numbers and the Canadian producer Jayda G, a four-hour set from the brilliantly off-kilter Mancunian DJ Mr Scruff, and Palestinian electro pioneers 47soul.

Elsewhere, DJ Food presents his stunning audio-visual tribute to the back catalogue of Aphex Twin, Glaswegian crew We Should Hang Out More dispense disco and house, and there’s a pop-up old school acid house rave in the middle of the site’s glen with sets from Brainstorm and She-Bang Rave Unit.

• Kelburn Garden Party, tomorrow – Sunday, Kelburn Castle, all day, from £104

Craig Charles

Three months on from his afternoon session at the BBC 6 Music Festival, funk and soul stalwart Craig Charles returns to Glasgow for two very different shows on Sunday night. He’ll be spinning records at The Jacksons 50-year celebration tour, before hot-footing it up the street to the Subbie for the afterparty.

Joining him is The Reflex, aka DJ/producer Nicolas Laugier. A champion of disco edits with a Midas touch for making glorious records even better, Laugier’s admirers range from Nile Rodgers to Disclosure. The London-based Frenchman destroyed on his last appearance in Glasgow – at Melting Pot in May last year - and a repeat is very much on the cards.

Before all that though, the German duo Âme (it’s pronounced “ahm,” by the way) stop in at Subculture on Saturday, bringing their bulging crate of bleeding-edge deep house records with them. This should be a belter, if the footage from their headline set at Innervisions in Barcelona last weekend is anything to go by.

• Subculture with Âme, Saturday, Sub Club, 11pm – 3am, £15

• Craig Charles and The Reflex, Sunday, Sub Club, 11pm – 3am, £15

Vini Vici

The much-maligned subgenre of psychedelic trance deserves just about all of the stick it gets. With its origins in the Goa trance scene, it’s the kind of unpleasant nonsense that gap year students with dreadlocks enjoy, which on its own should really be enough to have it consigned to Room 101 forever. But it’s big: bigger than you and I could possibly imagine, certainly, and big enough that its leading lights, the Israeli duo Vini Vici, are headlining at SWG3 tomorrow night. They’re backed up by Ben Gold, the man declared by Armada Music as being “the future of trance.”

Vini Vici, tomorrow, SWG3, 9pm – 2am, £22.50

Rumours Rave

The Los Angeles-based party and DJ collective Fleetmac Wood exists for one reason: to get people dancing to repurposed and original Fleetwood Mac tunes. Forty years on from the release of the band’s classic album Rumours, their disco-minded disciples are touring a curated and specially-created set of remixes and edits to mark the occasion. Can they improve upon what is widely regarded as a perfect album? “We simply cannot,” the organisers say, “but we will have fun re-framing it for the dance floor.”

• Fleetmac Wood presents Rumous Rave, Saturday, The Art School, 11pm – 3am, £10
