From Disco to Techno via Underground House. Diskopolis celebrate 10 years of forward thinking parties by welcoming one of the hottest young talents to emerge from these shores in Hide / Sub Club resident Junior G.
In their own words:
How time flies, it’s been 10 years since we put on our first night in the basement of an Edinburgh restaurant. Back then it was all about looking to the future and musically trying to have a forward thinking party. Subsequent events in Glasgow and truly unique surroundings such as Harburn Hall in our native West Lothian then ensued before a hiatus. We returned putting on occasional parties focusing on quality rather than quantity and talk turned to how we would mark this milestone. Those tentative discussions have led us to where it all began the capital and a venue with history and culture that mirrors our own underground ethos in the Bongo Club.
We are also delighted to welcome our guest DJ who is one of the hottest young talents to emerge from these shores over the past 5 years Junior G. Jordan Grierson as he’s known to the tax man has had a remarkable rise to prominence from making his debut in Glasgow’s world-renowned Sub Club before his 18th birthday and where he still holds down a residency to this day with his outstanding night Hide. Other residency’s include Ministry of Sound London as well as guest appearances at clubs and festivals all over Europe such as Weekend Club Berlin and Sonar Barcelona. Also a very accomplished producer check out his wicked material on the awesome Under No Illusion Recordings. Support on the night comes from Edinburgh’s own Birds in the Basement and our resident BT.
Most importantly of all thank you all the support over the last 10 years, we look forward to seeing old and new faces to help us celebrate with some bank holiday madness.
