INTRO: The legendary UK techno duo of Stuart McMillan and Orde Meikle have travelled far and wide, touring Australia, the USA , Europe, South America and Japan and they hold residencies at 3 of the UK's best clubs (Pressure & Return To Mono in their home town of Glasgow and Fabric in the nation’s Capital, London.)
SLAM ON FIRE: The last 2 years has been one of their busiest periods ever. Performing dynamic sets at many of the world’s leading festivals including Monegros, Oxygen, Bestival, 10 days off, Extrema, Glastonbury and T In The Park, they have also played at some of the world’s best clubs including the legendary Womb In Tokyo, Cocoon in Frankfurt, Rex in Paris and Berlin's infamous Watergate and Berghain to name a few. They recently celebrated 10 years of their illustrious club night Pressure @ the world famous Arches club in Glasgow with a Mixmag cover mount CD and have started their own Podcast series, recorded live at their Return To Mono club nights the Glasgow bunker, Sub Club. They have had a string of monster releases on their own PARAGRAPH & SOMA imprints, while releasing and remixing on Ovum, Material Series, Mobilee and soon to be Drumcode.
PARAGRAPH: The first release “City Destroyer”, with its sinister pitched vocals and crafty, crisp and skippy electronic sound-scapes, secured club plays from the likes of Richie Hawtin, Adam Beyer and Laurent Garnier. Paragraph 2, “Hot Knives”, was even bigger staying in the Beatport top 10 for 10 weeks with plays from just about every big name including Carl Craig, Anja Schneider, Dave Clarke and Dubfire. Paragraph 3, 4 and 5 “One Note Samba”, “Variance”, “Heart of the Soul” respectively, were massive successes seeing Slam combine their love and talents for both House & Techno on the same EPs. Slam now bring their friends and peers onto the label to remix the first 5 Paragraph releases with Germany’s finest tag-team, Pan-Pot first to bat. Turning out 2 outstanding remixes, they set the bar high for those who follow, including Harvey McKay, Alan Fitzpatrick, Gel Abril, Adam Beyer & Jesper Dahlback, Steve Lawler, Chris Liebing, Gary Beck and Julien Chaptal. There will also be an album with an exciting new concept based around Paragraph later in the year.
