Where would Glasgow be without the Sub Club? As old as acid house itself, Harri and Domenic's intimate and relentlessly friendly bastion has bookmarked pretty much the entire evolution of the Glaswegian post-acid house club scene. Back in 1989, the city's techno godfathers Slam enjoyed their first residency here with Joy Fridays. Fast forward to the present and Jackmaster's sickeningly on-point Numbers is laying down a new template for the Glasgow underground - joining the dots between funky, wonky, mutant garage, bass music and every other forward-thinking post-dubstep mutant.
In between the Sub Club has birthed way too many lost nights, legendary promotions, fabled residencies, new friends and magic moments to mention them all, although special mentions must go to JD Twitch and JG Wilkes's Sunday celebrations of alternative eclecticism - Optimo - and Harri and Domenic's own faultlessly programmed deep house session Subculture.
"My favourite thing about the Sub Club is the connection you feel with the crowd while DJing in there - it's just so direct," says Jackmaster. "And the sound system of course, which is devastating in the right hands. A perfect example being Twitch and Wilkes from Optimo."
