It is with great pride and more than a little self-glorification that I present to you the last Wasabi Disco. Great pride? Well yes, Wasabi Disco is the club that almost never was, or perhaps never should’ve been…? Born out of a mis-timed birthday party, it was only meant to be a bit of fun, a one off, “let’s just see what I can get away with….” Basically somewhere I could play tunes and styles that I like and felt were underrepresented in Edinburgh. If it worked great, if not who cares……….. But fucking hell it worked!

On Saturday the 17th November Wasabi Disco will turn 10 years old. During those 10 years we have seen and done many things… Like the time Daniel Wang had all the bar staff singing their favourite song onstage in an impromptu American Idol at 4am in the morning, or the time somebody crashed into the decks on stage knocking 2 Technics, 2 CDJs, a mixer, a laptop and about 20 drinks all onto the ground completely ruining the soundcard resulting in Nick Stewart having to leave the bar and DJ for the rest of the night on a spare CDJ! Or the time I couldn’t get through the crowd from behind the decks only to be hoisted up and crowd surfed towards the bar. We saw Wasabi Disco being named as one of the best clubs in Scotland by the List Magazine and included in its Hot 100 list, pick of the week a couple of times by The Guardian, Time Out and The Skinny, we got mentioned on 6 Music and put in Mixmag’s top 3 clubs (twice technically but couldn’t afford to put their photographer up in a hotel the second time so we got dropped… no biggie!).

Wasabi Disco opened the doors for me to DJ in many other clubs and festivals, enabled me to write the occasional article for magazines (Hacienda DJ Dave Haslam would later get in touch to include quotes from one of those articles in his book Life After Dark) get interviewed by Boiler Room and supply photos for DJ Magazine and French magazine Trax.

We have hosted legends like Twitch & Wilkes from Optimo, DJ Brainstorm, Bill Brewster, Prosumer & Andy Blake. We have seen the likes of Daniel Avery and Jayda G go from behind Wasabi’s decks to headlining huge festivals, we have given DJ’s like Kris Baha, Violet and San Proper their Scottish debuts and Young Marco, Wolf Muller, Hashman Deejay amongst others their Edinburgh debuts. We have booked the notoriously difficult to book (DJ Fett Burger & Sotofett) and have witnessed wild live sets from Happy Meals, Octo Octa, RAMZi and Gabe Gurnsey from Factory Floor. We’ve had DJ’s from some of the best record labels around (Ari Goldman of PPU & Future Times, Shit Robot of DFA, Chuggy & Jamie Paton of Emotional Especial and Anton Maiovvi of Death Waltz). We have hosted local legends like Fudge Fingas, Linkwood, Auntie Flo, Astrojazz and not so local legends David Barbarossa, GK Machine and Billy Woods and soon to be local legends Wolfjazz, Cassavetes, DJ Cheers and Yves.

But all that being said, it was never really about the DJ’s: it was about not taking yourself too seriously, playing music we believed in, month in, month out, releasing yourself from the darkness of life and having a big fuck-off party. And to you, the dancers I am truly grateful.

So it IS with great pride that I announce the final Wasabi Disco.

WASABI DISCO IS 10 YEARS OLD WITH JD TWITCH!

Thank you for dancing.

“I want to be with you everywhere”

THE MISSION IS TERMINATED…..

Badmed’s back.

Since 2014 Ahmed has been working alongside midweek favourite Hector’s House, who have been responsible for many of the capital’s top drawer parties and are celebrating their 6th birthday shortly. Past guests include Optimo b2b Domenic Cappello, Eclair Fifi and Earl Jeffers so keep your eyes peeled for that.

Over the last few months he’s had the chance to play out at All Under One Roof ft. Ross From Friends, Mash House’s Cowgate Foodbank Fundraiser, FLY Club and his stomping ground Hectors House.

Sneaky Pete’s has been one of my favourite venues since moving to Edinburgh and I’m really excited to get on the right side of the decks for the best Sunday party in town.

Support from Believe from 11 – 1am.

Entry is Free. Booze is Cheap. Dancing to make you sweat.

“Sneaky Pete’s, a club where I first witnessed Mr Roy Davis Jr take control. The limited capacity proves for a really intimate experience, a club I always hoped I would be able to play in & here we are.

I’ll be playing all night long with Ben Ashmore one of my favourite Edinburgh selectors! Music policy? No policy or limitations really but I’ll predict a-lot of soulful Chicago house, melodic Detroit techno & rare disco finds.

I really can’t wait for this. See you on the dance floor.”

A bumper night of EH-FM presenters going back to back!

For our first EH-FM Presents, we’ve paired two well-known and established DJs with two of the city’s most exciting new club nights.

Good pals Davie Miller (FiniTribe) and FRANk provide their trademark eclectic oddball electronica; then the monstrous energy of Palidrone meet Wecht’s serving of percussion salad to end the night.

£5 in all night. All proceeds going to community radio.

Surprisingly, Telfort and Percy haven’t ever done the back to back thing at a Lionoil party before (apart from that time FYI Chris were at Sneaks with Percy and he popped by at 4am, plugged in, played Rui Da Silva, got the club taps aff and mic dropped back to his other gig down the road).

Keep your eyes peeled for birthday surprises…

Big up anu, Sofay, Lena Willikens, Violet, Bradley Zero, ELLES, Medlar, Pellegrino & Andrea Montalto for soundtracking this year of parties. Best yin so far, by far! ?

Rounding out 2018 with their 18th event, no less, HYAM are proud to bursting point to bring you a rare and exclusive urban sighting of the elusive beard & bard combo responsible for 2014’s LP of the same name, now followed up by the second outing ‘Sorrow Of Derdriu’.

Made once again in conjunction with Forestry Commission Scotland, our sonic explorers Hoch Ma Toch, House Of Traps, Lord Of The Isles and Other Lands have refined their freeform channeling of ancient and primordial forces via futuristic sound sources to a tight and effective electro-organic stomp, ready for the floor like never before.

Performing live early doors, with an extended b2b from all four of the crew, we advise you get there early to experience the full trip in all its majesty.

We’ve had a years-long journey with Brian D’Souza aka Auntie Flo, and we’re seriously thrilled to be on board for the next stage.

The Auntie Flo ‘Radio Highlife’ live show will be an engaging live rendition of not only his newly released album on Gilles Peterson’s Brownwood Recordings, but an expansive summation of his career thus far. Seven years of wild travelling, serendipitous encounters, deeply personal moments are packed into the live show with field recordings and themes from everywhere from Cuba to Cape Town, Bali to Kampala and voices from Russia, Istanbul, Senegal and the UK expertly fused together in an ambitious and original global statement.

We are proud to be a PRS Foundation ‘Talent Development Partner’ and with their help we have been able to curate our ‘New Waves’, ‘Night Music’ and ‘Central Belters’ programmes.

The shining light from Norway, will be joining us at Sneaky Pete’s for his Edinburgh debut.

Fresh off a standout year in 2018, playing all over Europe, North and South America and Asia, including standout Boiler Room and main stage sets at Dekmantel.

Skatebård is all things electronic. Connoisseurs know that his catalogue oscillates between emotional techno, neo-italo, electro from an alternative future and a Scando-cosmic reinterpretation of pure Detroitian house.
