SLAM instigated Glasgow’s underground House music scene in the late 1980s, going on to be instrumental in the explosion of the UK Techno scene, and their quarter of a century of exploits have seen them travel far and wide, leaving scorch marks on dance floors everywhere while taking their uncompromising vision of Techno around the world.
Closer to home, since 1997, SLAM have curated the ‘Slam Tent’ at Scotland’s biggest festival ‘T in the Park’, with some of the world’s best known DJs and live acts playing alongside underground ground breaking talent on their monumental stage. Their firmly established monthly club events in Glasgow, ‘Pressure’ (formerly at the Arches now at SWG3) and ‘Return To Mono’ at the Sub Club, are ranked amongst the best nights out on the planet.
SLAM have never been ones to rest on their musical laurels and they are constantly and consistently experimenting in the studio, working multitude of tracks, many of which have surfaced in recent times in the form of singles for labels like Figure, Drumcode and of course their own Soma Records and Paragraph imprints. When Soma reached its 400th single release, who better to provide the soundtrack, and with Soma reaching it’s silver jubilee of 25 years in the game the duo who were instrumental in its formation will reach another pinnacle in a glittering ascent.
