As Slam's label Soma prepares to embark on the 25th year of it's epic journey, you only have to take one look at it's release schedule to understand why they have remained on the cutting edge and firmly at the forefront of musical innovation. Protagonists since the early days and always in the vanguard, forward-thinking techno producers, Stuart McMillan & Orde Meikle delve into the everyday workings of what makes us human; with life, so to speak, running at the very heart of their upcoming album “Machine Cut Noise”. Over the last 3 years the pair have also developed 'Slam Radio', delivering some of the best DJs and music that Techno has to offer to a massive and loyal weekly following, with a truly underground flavour. 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' and 'Return To Mono' at the Sub Club, are ranked amongst the best nights out on the planet.
