To celebrate their first birthday LightsOut are brining one of Dixon Avenue Basement Jam’s finest to Stereo. Glasgow’s very own Fear-E will be cutting the cake and helping them blow out the candles on the 14th of April. If you’re not yet acquainted with the producer or his DJ sets have a listen to his podcast on Rinse FM. He’s well versed in bouncy, energetic house and much like his label mates possesses a fondness for Chicago Jackin’ classics. The producer has also been known to fling some techno, EBM, acid and his own tracks into the mix just to keep things interesting. You certainly won’t be bored, don’t you go missing it now!
Check the event page here.
Listen to Fear-E’s Soundcloud here.
Recent imports from North of the border Remake Remodel have been thrilling crowds in the basement with a hefty mix of alt rock classics, punk, psych rock, rock’n’roll, alt pop, grunge and all the other good stuff. Having expanded from their night in Manchester, they’re bringing something a little bit different to Techno-centric Glasgow and Glasgow seems to like it. Their next night will focus on the affable Australian psych-rock band Tame Impala.
The night will not only be playing all the Tame Imapala classics but there will also be free posters and Tame Imapala installations. It’ll be Tame Imapala-mania, woah! There will also be a second floor with a guest DJ upstairs . But don’t worry if Tame Impala ain’t you bag, they’ll also be playing all the favourites through out the night.
Get down to the basement on the 31st of March from 10pm, more details and Facebook event here.

Saturday 4th Feb 2016
Stereo Cafe Bar
We can all agree that we’d quite like to see the back of 2016 as quickly as possible, so this year as well as celebrating the birth of 2017, we can party knowing that 2016 is well and truly dead. This year at Stereo we’ve brought together the finest and freshest hip hop club nights for evening of popping bottles. Before you get down to the night get to know the peeps playing the party.
The freshest of the fresh, Tomboy might be newcomers but that doesn’t mean they don’t know how to cold rock the party. With a focus on alternative female hip hop, trap and grime (with a lil’ bit of dancehall and R’n’B flung in for good measure) their nights encompass live performance from female MCs alongside resident DJ Sycophantasy . Previous guests have included Lady Shocker and they’ve got some big names coming through for 2k17.
What can you expect: A lot of bad ass female MCs like Princess Nokia, Little Simz Paigey Cakey and some alternative female hip hop from the far reaches of Soundcloud.
Too Nice have been causing it for a few years now, they’ve partied in a few different venues over the years but they’re currently residing in Stereo’s basement. These boys specialise in party rap, drill, dancehall and everything in between. Over the years they’ve collaborated with Astral Black, Freaky Freaky and Sub Rosa as well as hosting SpaceGhostPurrp and Yung Simmie. Their recent parties have utilised cities as a theme with nights playing artists from cities such as Atlanta and New York.
What can you expect: Definitely a good time featuring everything from Lil Wayne to Yung Lean to Lil Yachty to Jay Z to Sicko Mobb to Drake to Beenie Man…you get the idea
A staple of Glasgow’s hip hop scene, the tape label has been distributing and releasing cassettes for several years. The tapes feature music from a range of producers across the full spectrum of rap and hip hop, from gold era flows to jazzy instrumentals and big beats. The collective features both DJs and artists and includes Bessa, DJ Picnic, Ile Flottante, Kayak and Tuner. They’ve been pretty busy throwing parties solo and with Frogbeats as well as collaborating with Glasgow based clothing label The Worst amongst other things.
What you can expect: Lil’ bitta funk, a lil’ bitta rap and loadssssssssssssssa’ beats. Artists on rotation will include Outkast, Cameo and A Tribe Called Quest
Push It are the undisputed party queens, the girls have been hosting events for just over two years. Their events have included throwing Beyonce and Britney themed parties as well as dedicating nights to exes and teen movie soundtracks. The female focused night aims to put women at the forefront both in terms of the music and the vibe of the night. However, they don’t take themselves too seriously, they’re quite happy dropping Paris Hilton’s ‘Stars Are Blind’ right beside Mary J Blige and Lauryn Hill.
What to Expect: Female hip hop, pop, R’n’B from the likes of Missy Elliot, TLC, Destiny’s Child Sugababes and Kelis. Probably some glitter curtains too.
Another new kid on the block, Half Cut combines elements of jazz, disco, soul and fuses them with hip hop. The night has been holding its own mid week in Stereo recently hosting Jeen Bassa. Several of the residents and guests have shows on Subcity including Pleasant Overthinking and Vugge. Half Cut specialises in good tunes and good vibes and are definitely ones to watch for the future.
What you can expect: An exploration of the genres that have played an integral part of forming hip hop as a genre alongside modern MCs and beatmakers. Leaning more to the chill end of the spectrum, artists such as Nujabes and Mos Def.

Sat Dec 3rd at Stereo… Islam Chipsy & EEK + Cucina Povera, General Ludd DJs, Becky Marshall, and Flame Boi Three DJs!
Islam Chipsy and his band EEK are a three-way force of nature from Cairo, Egypt described by those who’ve been caught in the eye of their storm as one of the most exciting live propositions on the planet. At the core of the group lies electro chaabi keyboard pioneer Islam Chipsy, whose joyous, freewheeling sonic blitz warps the standard oriental scale system into otherworldly shapes, as flanked by Mohamed Karam and Mahmoud Refat raining down a percussive maelstrom behind dual drum kits.
