Bigfoot's Riverside with Ambivalent
The first of Bigfoot’s summer parties graces us with its presence with M_nus mainstay Ambivalent lined up to send the place into orbit. And that place is 100 Stobcross Road which usually functions as a reputable Indian restaurant-cum-karaoke nexus but for the last few years has seen its alluring exterior and spacious multi-roomed interior commandeered and remodeled into one of the most exciting club environments to exist (for twelve hours at a time, for a few nights a year).
Kevin McHugh, aka Ambivalent, previously helped to blow out the candles on Bigfoot’s second birthday and his style and sound have evolved in recent years into a dark, grooving and often revelatory approach to modern techno which solidifies his live sets and infects his productions. This, coupled with an endlessly inventive approach to performance, makes him one of the most impressive artists in electronic music today.
Ambivalent is no stranger to Glasgow after supporting Plastikman at his recent Barrowlands show but this marks an opportunity to see him in another light altogether. Also on the bill is Esa (of Auntie Flo fame) and Fuad, alongside firestarter residents Christopher Kelly, Wrick and Dave Scott. Expect BBQs, a specially-sized Funktion One setup and plenty of surprises. [Calum Sutherland]
