On Friday 3rd July Numbers celebrates its 6th Birthday party at Glasgow’s Sub Club. For this years celebrations we decided to mix up the old and new; so we’ve invited over one of our greatest influences and two of our most recent discoveries for a party of epic proportions.
MMM First up from Berlin is the massively influential MMM aka Erik & Fiedel. Erik is mostly known these days for his Errorsmith project and for being one half of Smith ‘N’ Hack, while Fiedel is a resident at the world famous Berghain in Berlin. These guys were responsible for the Donna Summer sampling techno classic ‘Donna’; a tune that just refuses to die. We first heard Donna in the late 90’s and it’s a tune that has stuck with us ever since. Over the years Errorsmith has a become regular guest at the club and for one of our Brunswick Hotel parties he decided to reactivate MMM for their first ever live show. This then morphed in to a legendary ten years of MMM party at Berghain… it’s about time we unleashed this beast at the Sub Club.
Gemmy & Guido Representing the new school are rising Dubstep stars Gemmy & Guido. With Glasgow and Bristol being at the forefront of Britain’s electronic music scene right now we just had to invite our Bristolian cousins up for their Glasgow debut. Alongside former Numbers guest Joker they form part of the hailed Purple Trinity, famed for their take on Dubstep that sidesteps the stereotypical wobblers in favour of Prince, Dr Dre, G-Funk and modern day R&B influences like the Neptunes and Danja, with Guido recently being touted as the British answer to Timbaland by The Wire writer Joe Muggs. Their music can be found on Bristol label Punch Drunk and the famed electronica label Planet Mu.
Numbers. Now in to its 6th year, Numbers is a collective of record labels, designers, writers, DJs and producers. The club was rated among the top 2 clubs in the UK and “one of the coolest clubs in the world” by Mixmag and the focus of their recent 4 page spread on Glasgow. This last year has seen the Numbers crew up the ante with our DJ’s releasing records and performing all over Europe whilst our in house labels Stuffrecords and Wireblock have dominated the UK’s electronic music scene. Expect some big announcements ahead as we prepare to do something very special with these labels.
