The term legend gets passed around a lot when established Techno and House names come around, and we are very excited to be able to say we're bringing one of the most important duos in Techno to our fair city. Slam are unequivocally legends, from their early hits in the early '90s 'Positive Eduction' and 'Step Back' to their current renaissance with their RTM remix series and storming current releases. Soma has always been a label to pay attention to and as the global fire for Techno has rekindled Slam have been there delivering the goods.

Slam:

In the past two decades, Slam have defined techno in Scotland, cultivated many artists of note on their Soma label, and remixed everyone from Daft Punk to Underworld. The legendary UK duo, comprising of Stuart McMillan and Orde Meikle, have travelled far and wide, leaving scorch marks on dance-floors worldwide, touring Australia, the USA, Europe, South America and Japan. They hold residencies at 3 of the UK's best clubs (Pressure & the Sub Club in their home town of Glasgow and Fabric in London).

The last few years have been the most prolific period in Slam's career. Performing dynamic sets at many leading festivals including Time Warp, Mayday, Bestival, Glade, Awakenings, Glastonbury, Monegros and T In The Park. They have also played at some of the world's best clubs including the legendary Womb in Tokyo, Cocoon in Frankfurt, Rex in Paris and Berlin's infamous Watergate and Berghain. Their Soma Records label hit its 20th birthday in 2011, which is a great achievement in any industry never mind the fickle music business. In this prestigious year Slam were also nominated as the 'Greatest Dance Act of All Time' in the institutional UK Dance music magazine Mixmag.

Slam are the proud co-owners of Soma, which now in its 21st year, continues to be one of the world's leading purveyors of cutting edge electronic music. As well as introducing and developing many new acts and album projects, Soma's recent releases have included singles and remixes from artists including The Black Dog, Adam Beyer, Joris Voorn, Silicone Soul, Gary Beck, Surgeon, Loco Dice, Mark Broom, Nick Curly, Matthias Tanzmann, Pan-Pot, Carl Craig, Radio Slave and Sebo K. Big names. Big tracks! Slam's latest release on Soma is 'Old School Jams for the New Republic'; a two track EP of powerful dancefloor burners.

The first release 'City Destroyer', with its crisp electronic sound-scapes, secured club plays and support from the likes of Richie Hawtin, Adam Beyer and Laurent Garnier. Since then Paragraph has combined Slam's love and talents for both Techno & House to great effect. Massive tracks like 'Hot Knives', 'Variance', 'We Doin' This Again' and 'Room 2' have been working crowds the world over. Slam's 'Alliances' series, has also commenced on Paragraph with collaborations between Slam and their friends and peers. The first release was with Gary Beck and is soon to be followed by collabs with Pan-Pot & Italo Boyz. Their Return To Mono residency at Glasgow's Sub Club has also etched its way into the Paragraph label through the 'RTM Project'. This concentrates on the housier side of the duos productions.

As well as a string of monster tracks on their own Paragraph and Soma labels, this prolific period has seen Slam releasing singles and remixing on other imprints including Planet E, Figure, Ovum, and Mobilee. Following on from their 'Old School Jams for the New Republic' is the 'Capana' release on Len Faki's Figure imprint, which includes a remix from Gary Beck. Slam have also been tied closely with Drumcode, most recently destroying clubs with 'Vespula' , the 5th Slam single for Adam Beyer. The duo have also remixed Spencer Parker, Christian Smith, Josh Wink, Paul Ritch, Pan-Pot, Radio Slave & Paperclip People, many of which are combined with Slam's Paragraph, Figure and Drumcode singles on the Soma-released Slam album 'Collecting Data'.
