This month’s musical musts take on a different form; instead of multiple gigs, we’re recommending one and only one, in order to accommodate the prowess of Processed Beats. A monthly electro club night, which is being re-launched at The Arches, the aim of the game is to bring together hot newcomers and industry heavyweights in a live band/DJ mash-up. Sounds delicious, doesn’t it synth fans?
The next Processed Beats night takes place on November 16th. Techno outfit Clouds and Optimo’s JD Twitch head up the bill, with stellar support from HaHaHa, the Glasgow DJ setting dancefloors alight with his techno house beats.
Support on the band front comes from Roman Nose, Indian Red Lopez, Any Color Black and Ginger Beard Men, all of whom are profiled below to whet your appetite for musical filth.
This electro techno trio supported 2manydjs at Glasgow’s O2 Academy last New Year’s Eve, performed on the T Break stage at this summer’s T in the Park festival, and like to wear masks while performing. That last one sold you, didn’t it? The energetic threesome, consisting of GP on vocals and keys, Bullet Beard with the vital visuals, and Young Cheteen on live percussion and FX, play a little bit of everything; metal, house, dubstep, etc. You name it, they’ll churn it out in terrific techelectro style.
The five piece Aberdeenshire outfit stop by Processed Beats in the middle of their mini UK tour. An indie- electro delight, the band have been described as “a Celtic Two Door Cinema Club”, but prefer to think of themselves as “an idea of natural compulsion.” Whatever they are, we like them at Scotcampus. Expect plenty of tracks from acclaimed debut album Empty Your Lungs and Breathe, and perhaps a sneak peek at what’s to come from their highly anticipated second record.
Any Color Black have gained much press attention for their electro house rock tunes over the
years, with their music featuring in STV teen drama Being Victor and BBC3’s Lip Service, to name but two. Glasgow duo Louise and Andy are guaranteed to get you on the floor with their dirty drum beats and gritty guitars, as they showcase songs from debut album Sex and Love- available now on iTunes, musos!
Take two dudes, one far more ginger than the other, throw in some banging drums and a whole lot of funky distorted vocals and you’ve got Ginger Beard Men. Or, if Ke$ha was male, this is what her songs might sound like. Whichever way you think about it, Ginger Beard Men are a welcome addition to the bill. Playing original songs like Give Em’ More, plus remixes including Bear Arms’ track Cities, you’re bound to find something to love amongst their set.
