Slam to open monthly club night at Mareel

Slam are Stuart MacMillan and Orde Meikle.

ONE OF Scotland’s leading dance acts make a return to Shetland this weekend to play at the very first club night in the islands’ new music and cinema venue Mareel.

Slam will make their third appearance in the isles this Friday following previous performances in the town’s now legendary North Star venue.


Slam are a DJ/production duo from Glasgow consisting of Stuart MacMillan and Orde Meikle.

They formed in 1988 and were seen as pioneers of the Scottish electronic music scene.

Slam co-founded Scottish dance label Soma records in the early 90s on which they’ve released all their own music as well as tracks by other techno acts including Funk D’Void and Silicone Soul.

Slam are being brought to Shetland by local promoters Klub Revolution who said they were delighted to have secured Slam’s services to open their new monthly club night at Mareel.

Klub Revolution will also be bringing name DJs such as Kutski, Lisa Lashes, Mylo and Graeme Park to Shetland in the coming months.

Support for Slam at Mareel comes from Shetland’s very own dance pioneer, Scott McCulloch.

Tickets for Slam are available from Shetland Box Office at www.shetlandboxoffice.com, at Mareel or at High Level Music.
