Why do people keep falling over? They should use Titanium Buff, it's the most useful colour for mixing and is pretty nice on its own too.

The Third Man LIVE in Rotterdam

The Third Man was playing in Rotterdam last weekend at new night 'Eclectro'. His live set has come on tenfold since we put him on and as the lads who were organising the night recorded it, we thought you should hear it too.

03. michael rother - blauer regen
04. tangerine dream - first movement: birth of liquid plejades

Slabs of the Tabernacle 008 @ The Twisted Wheel
Saturday 6th December
£5 Entry


Fancy & Spook are no stranger to these parts by now but we wanted to wait until it got cold before we put them on.

Live, fast, analogue electro from the guests with complementary techno and electro sets from the residents. Are you sitting comfortably...

Fancy & Spook are Gavin Hughes & John Davis. Originally from Northern Ireland, they have been living in Glasgow since 2000 and are now part of the thriving electronic music scene based around the city’s Rub-A-Dub Records.

Inspired by a love of all things analogue and constant exposure to the best of international electronic music at clubs like Test, Club 69, and Monox they have developed a tough yet playful take on the classic electro-techno sound.

In late 2005 they set up Heatray Records, with fellow Glasgow artist Craig Bell (aka Ditone) and released the “We Had The Technology” EP in April 2006.

The Detroit influenced electro of that 12” received the Dave Clarke seal of approval, making the Top 10 on for April 2006, and earned comparisons with
Detroit legends Aux 88 and Drexciya.

However, 2008's “Extended Peril” EP sees their sound come closer to home with British bleeps, bass and bounce coming to the fore. On top of a solid 808 foundation, the influences range from the minimal melodies of Sheffield Techno and the metallic bass mastery of Neil Landstrumm to the eccentric electronics of the J Saul Kane’s Octagon Man project and analogue terrorists Add (N) to X

They specialise in live performance, taking an MPC full of home-made loops and as much of their analogue gear as they can carry to thoroughly road-test their sounds. They have supported J Saul Kane, 808 State, Dynarec, and Cursor Miner and have played out locally alongside fellow analogue fiends Marco Bernardi and the Sleepless Crew.

SLABS 030 - Don O'Kane

Moving swiftly onto our next mix which comes from Basic Aly (or Don O'Kane as the taxman calls him). We asked him to get a mix to us after hearing some of his previous endeavours and he promptly came back to us with this stunner.

He'll be joining Ali Renault on the 3rd January for our first night of the New Year.
