Hip Hop & Jungle
With DJ Vadim & Suff Daddy
Friday 16th September
The Art School
11pm - 3am

Kicking off the fresh semester with a double dosage of guests gracing our two floor takeover at one of Glasgow’s finest clubbing establishments, The Art School. We’re going that extra mile for the regular rock-ups and new arrivals to the city, with a bunch of extra production and audience interactive activities galore.

☟With DJ Vadim (Jungle Set) & Frogbeats

A veteran that knows no boundaries, DJ Vadim is one of the most prolific figures in electronic music today. Since the mid-90s the producer from St Petersburg, now based in Barcelona, has gained himself global acclaim after being introduced to the world by Giles Peterson and John Peel, and later being signed to the Ninja Tune insignia. Renowned for his infectious recipe of global music fusing together dub/reggae, hip hop and soul, Vadim has demonstrated his unquestionable ability to span multiple genres with an adept ear. We’ve enlisted him to join the takeover and play a special jungle set in what promises to be a show of epic proportions.

☝︎ With Suff Daddy & Handpicked Cassette Tapes

With the release of his latest album ‘Bird Songs’ dropping on one of our favourite record labels of the moment, Jakarta, Suff Daddy has solidified his ability to saunter the line between real raw boom bap and soulful subtleties, enlisting vocal artists such as Mayer Hawthorne and Miles Bonny to collaborate on his all original productions. 

The seminal Suff Sells is still on heavy rotation down at Handpicked HQ, as is his contribution to Melting Pot Music’s Hi-Hat Club series, and if past releases Blunts With My Crew, Sympathy for The Liquor and The Gin Diaries are anything to go by, Big Papa Suff is going to appreciate Glasgow City as much as we will his selection.
