19L-Vis 1990 at WitnessSneaky Pete's, Edinburgh
Co-founder of label and club night Night Slugs alongside Bok Bok, he is an artist whose musicality has shifted from explosive hyperbass on his debut ‘Change The Game’ to propulsive Chicago house on ‘Club Constructions Vol.1’ all via the smooth pop sensibilities of his gatefold album ‘Neon Dreams’. His DJ knack for deconstructing then playfully reassembling hard edged dancefloor styles is one of the reasons he’s such an exciting performer.

22Spectres plus guestsSneaky Pete's, Edinburgh
The reviews are in for Spectres‘ new record and – woah.
Essential show on 22nd April.

“‘Condition’ sounds huge, as if the quartet were playing at maximum volume in a canyon. Sudden shifts between grinding white-noise guitar and metronomic strumming – evoking vintage Steve Albini – are set off against terse riffs and hazy, choirboy vocals.” MOJO (4/5)

“Spectres’ pranks sometimes detract from the excellence of their music. ‘Condition’ obscures lovely melodies with disjointed electronica on deliberately self-destructive tracks like ‘Dissolve’.” Uncut (8/10)

“Spectres are not necessarily for people who wish to actually enjoy music in the conventional sense. Instead, they continue to carve their niche amongst listeners who wish to be moved, shaken, challenged and disgusted. A fitting soundtrack to the year’s dystopia.” Crack (7/10)

28Lionoil: Ajukaja & ThinktankSneaky Pete's, Edinburgh
We first came across Ajukaja a while back through a couple of standout, cheeky, oddball 12's with Andrevski on Levels. Dig a little deeper, and it quickly becomes clear that Raul is a deeply rooted stalwart of the Estonian music scene - running monthly Tallinn institution Mutant Disco for the past 20 years; putting out wildly eclectic and highly sought after records on his Porridge Bullet label; not to mention his 90s output as Hüpnosaurus (with Aivar Tõnso) which endure as relevant today as when they were made.

Similarly Colvin's Edinburgh roots go deep; long time venue manager of the Wee Red Bar, fiercely eclectic record collector (with a penchant for dancehall); leader of post-punky electro unit Snide Rhythms; all round soundcunt. Last year he re-booted a couple of highly sought after tracks from 2000 on a soon to be highly sought after 10", this year he provided the inaugural release on Stepback's label, and in the very near future we will be dropping an EP from him on Lionoil (more on that to follow soon!).

As we say, momentous meeting of minds...

Moxie is back with another superb lineup!

Moxie is our favourite NTS selector and she’s held down shows for Radio1 too. Her ‘Moxie Presents’ compilation series have featured a broad selection of artists including Lone, Medlar, Ikonika, Kowton, SCNTST & Lord Tusk.

Alexander Nut, another NTS favourite also runs one our favourite labels Eglo Records alongside Floating Points. By far one of the most consistently high quality labels in the UK, their stage and boat parties at Dimensions Festival are an annual highlight – and Alex is our man who holds it together.

Nick Stewart is the booker for Sneaks but his appearances behind the decks are pretty rare. Get down early to see why!

18Samo DJ at JuiceSneaky Pete's, Edinburgh
Stockholm's Samo DJ continually sabotages the model with distinctive productions that fearlessly compact a myriad of demented ideas with a twisted Scandinavian cheek. One-half of Sling & Samo and co-founder of their label Born Free, Samo also creates faux-fantasy original soundtracks with MaxxxBass as KWC 92, while studio time with Tzu Sing, Baba Stiltz and Cos/Mes further transmutes his sound.

Responsible for multiple standout L.I.E.S. releases, Samo's tweaked out edits and remixes have also been issued by Public Possession, Macadam Mambo and Klasse Wrecks.

29Mike ServitoSneaky Pete's, Edinburgh
The Bunker New York - Ghostly - Brooklyn

Mike Servito is from a very special yet temporary and partially lost fertile crescent of techno / house / party DJing. It was a time when raves were still a fresh idea, almost felt like a revolution, and DJs like Claude Young, D Wynn, Derrick Carter and Mike Huckaby were informing an upcoming generation. If you look directly to that inspired generation you will find the lost threads of Detroit Techno, House and beyond, you will find a group of DJs with insanely deep mixing skills, the ability to rock almost any kind of party with an improvisational approach that is so skilled it makes everything seem so well thought out that even they don't know where their set will go. But, it will take you there! In the future, this special generation of deep midwest mixers will be remembered and revered as the wizards they are, long after the trendy players have lost their luster.

Detroit never forgot about Mike Servito, his upfront dirty deep and bitchy taste has had an impact on Detroit nightlife for over a decade. From debuting in 1995 at Dat's Poorboy parties, to being a resident at blackbx and Ghostly's Untitled (along with Derek Plaslaiko, Tadd Mullinix, Matthew Dear, and Ryan Elliott), contributing to the bizarrely popular, wild and free Dorkwave, and progressing that concept into Sass (the hippest queer party in Detroit at the time), to blowing minds at Interdimensional Transmissions' No Way Back parties, Servito has made his impression. Moving to Brooklyn, Detroit's loss has been their gain, as he has found a proper home with a residency at The Bunker, and representation by Beyond Booking in North America and Odd Fantastic in Europe.

4Green Day + RancidBellahouston Park, Glasgow
As a reaction to overwhelming public demand, we are delighted to announce that Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees and Grammy Award-winning rock band Green Day will return to Scotland on July 4th 2017, playing a huge outdoor headline show in Glasgow’s Bellahouston Park. Having amassed in excess of 75 million album sales to date, the show is in support of their 12th studio album, Revolution Radio, which was released by Reprise Records on October 7th this year.

Main support for the show will come from Berkeley, California’s Punk Rock icons, Rancid, who last year re-issued their seminal record ‘…And Out Come The Wolves’ on it’s 20th anniversary.

Produced by Green Day and recorded in Oakland, Revolution Radio is a potent 12-track blitz of angst-ridden anthems that unites Green Day's fully formed stylistic approach with lyrical themes that address the complexities and uncertainties of modern day existence. Musically, the album is raw, visceral, and fearless — solidifying the band's reign as one of the leading voices in rock music. Inspired by recent events, the first single "Bang Bang” marks a welcome return from a band with more to say than ever.
