MS Fundraiser with Jackmaster

We’ve always suspected that Jackmaster is a good egg. His rise to international prominence from the Glasgow underground wouldn’t have been possible if he wasn’t. “Good lad,” you’ll often hear the audiences at his gigs saying, nodding towards the stage in quiet admiration as he drops the bass back into another prime techno banger. “Good heid on his shooders.”

More evidence to back up this assertion can be found at SWG3 tomorrow, when the renowned selector hosts a special club night to raise money for Multiple Sclerosis research. Jack has roped in mates including Subbie resident Jasper James and house favourite Artwork to help Moe Abutoq, a close friend of his and Jasper, who is suffering from the illness. With no cure available and his condition deteriorating, Moe’s family hope to raise enough to fund a course of breakthrough stem cell treatment in Mexico that offers him the chance at a normal life. Tickets for the fundraiser are £10, but you can of course donate more on Moe’s Justgiving page, with the link available on Jackmaster’s social channels.

The following night, Jax Jones ¬– the man responsible for one of last summer’s scorchingest bangers – is back in Finnieston after seven months of relentless touring. The south London DJ and multi-instrumentalist’s 2016 smash single You Don’t Know Me mutated into a worldwide earworm, and the Demi Lovato-featuring Instruction, which was released in the summer, was a samba-infused stomper that hit Number 3 in the UK Dance charts. Breathe, which was released at the weekend, is another slice of bubblegum pop perfection that is sure to get a runout at this massive SWG3 show.

• MS Fundraiser for Moe, tomorrow, SWG3, 10pm – 3am, £10 donation

• Jax Jones: House Work, Saturday, SWG3, 10pm – 3am, £25

Oliver Heldens

Oliver Heldens’ Twitter bio sums it up: “spreading good vibes and addictive funky beats.” As mission statements go, it’s pretty simple and effective – he’s the current king of the Dutch big room EDM sound, with a remix portfolio that includes Coldplay, Martin Garrix, Robin Thicke, Disclosure and Calvin Harris. Two enormous SEC Centre gigs this weekend underline his popularity: prepare for an onslaught of poppy dance bangers. Later in the week, the worlds of Balearic house and classical merge on Wednesday at the Hydro as Pete Tong brings his Ibiza Classics arena show to town, along with the 65-piece Heritage Orchestra.

• Oliver Heldens, Saturday & Sunday, SEC Centre, 7pm – 11pm, £30

• Pete Tong presents Ibiza Classics, Wednesday, The Hydro, 6.30pm – 11pm, £40

Miss Kittin

Everybody knows that online popularity is based around one key currency: cute cat and dog memes. It took a while, but the Berkeley Suite has become the city’s first club to realise this and looks set to reap the benefits with an entirely animal-themed weekend: French electroclash DJ Miss Kittin and Brighton producer Rex the Dog bring the noise tomorrow night and on Saturday, respectively. Down on Queen Street, All Night Passion’s last party of the year has Edinburgh-based Natasha Kitty Katt spinning disco and funk-infused house at La Cheetah. Sounds purrrfect.

• All Night Passion with Natasha Kitty Katt, tonight, La Cheetah, 11pm – 4am, £5

• Miss Kittin, tomorrow, The Berkeley Suite, 11pm – 3am, £10

• Rex the Dog, Saturday, The Berkeley Suite, 11pm – 3am, £6/£8

Hannah Wants

Hannah Wants wants her Playground tour, which lands in Glasgow tonight, to instill a “proper rave” atmosphere in intimate venues across the country. The bassy Birmingham house superstar should have no problem creating that in the Subbie: her last gig at SWG3 was bedlam, and tickets for this one sold out almost as soon as they went on sale –big things are in store. And on Saturday, Brooklyn-born Chicagoan DJ Heather returns to Jamaica Street for the first time in over a decade as she spins soulful house with her usual verve and undeniable talent.

• Hannah Wants, tonight, Sub Club, 11pm – 4am, sold out

• Subculture with DJ Heather, Saturday, Sub Club 11pm – 4am, £10
