Well, now that the dust has settled and folks back to work and everyday life, reminiscing about Saturdays shenanigans (maybe its just me, however comments on social media indicate digferently) we’re left thinking ‘how do we top that?’
Well, we go bigger and longer and tougher and stronger, as the old rave tune ‘Dominator’ suggests.
So with that in mind, and the fact its our summer alldayer, we’ll have an additional area for you to throw some shapes and enjoy yourself.
The main room wont be inside this time, oh no siree. We’ll be utilising the large courtyard within the castle walls and transforming it in to a little festivalesque stage, where our main man, absolute progressive house god, one half of Way Out West, Soundgarden sepremo Nick Warren spinning for a lovely extended 4 hours of proggy goodness.
Joining Nick outside, will be a man very much of the moment, whose stock is well on the rise, thanks in part to his huge ‘Cognitive Behaviour’ ep, which is currently receiving massive exposure from the likes of a certain Hernan Cattaneo. Added to the fact that he’s a bloody good DJ and producer, our resident Brent Lawson will be on warm up duties, which will fit perfectly with the prog vibe.
Kicking things off in the afternoon will be, resident and string puller, Robert Clark (I need to get a better DJ name than Dirk Beetlejuice sounds kinda catchy).
Due to the castles location, there is a curefew on the outdoor stage, so from 9pm, we’ll move things inside.
So, we thought we’d better get another top artist in to headline room 1. We’re sure we’ve got an artist that’ll pickle your tangerines and hammer the senses. A DJ and producer, who has been around for years, right from the early 90s. However, over the last few years, he’s really come to the fore, and right up there with the premier league guys. Co-founder of Selador, with some incredible releases, such as 303V and Squidfist, the uber talented, and nicest bloke you could meet, Steve Parry.
Joining Steve in room one, will be our resident and so much more behind the scenes, Paul Montague.
We are also delighted, and from a personal point of view, thrilled to bits, to bring back the guy, that without doubt, none of this would’ve happened. Founding member of MitA, Lee Ultrasound will be returning for the first time in 2 years.
After a cracking debut on Saturday, and we’ve been getting rave reviews of his set, which i missed due to being on playing duties downstairs, we felt it only right to ask Elgins finest back for another shotty, so Kevin Smith aka Sidney will once again joining us.
Finally to kick start proceedings inside will be one of not only Dundees finest, also voted 62nd best DJ in Scotland (sorry mate, couldn’t resist) Derek McCusker completes the lineup for room 1.
In the upstairs room we’ll have a host of local and up and coming DJs, as well as a competition winner (keep your eyes peepers peeled for competition details at the bottom of this rather lengthy announcement and how to enter).
We’ve decided to do away with online ticketing for this, as the 3 or 4 quid extra you’d pay on top of your ticket price in fees, doesnt really give you anything extra, so we felt we could put the money to better use, by bringing in another artist, and hopefully a bit extra into production.
So with that in mind, tickets for our alldayer will be £28, there will be no booking fee. However, postal orders will carry a £1 additional charge for postage, so buy in bulk if you can, as we want to keep costs down for you lovely people.
Tickets will be available for purchase from 6th May at 9am, however those on the priority list, we’ll be in touch when tickets arrive, and will post out, before they go on general sale.
If you live outside the Dundee area and would like to come, please send us a pm from 9am on May 6th and we’ll get tickets to you that way.
Once again, thanks for your continued support, and we’ll see you on July 6th for 12 hours of music, fun, shenanigans and keeping it real.
*If you fancy winning yourself a slot at our summer alldayer, please send us a pm and we’ll give directions on how to get your mix to us. What we need, is a 1 hour mix, thats it.
Please be mindful of our music policy, which is anything from house, to prog, to techno. Remember though, the prize is opening room 2 from 4pm, so something that fits that time slot will go a long way. Be creative, think outside the box, and just enjoy yourself. Youve got plenty of time and we’ll announce a winner around the end of May.
Competition closes on April 30th.
