Clubland gets off to a typically slow start in January while promoters and DJs recover from their NYE/NYD antics. Starting early though are Edinburgh promoters Wack, who are bringing Hessle Audio and Timedance affiliate Ploy along to The Mash House in Edinburgh on 10 January, and Shoot Your Shot, who throw their first party of the year with former Panorama Bar resident Prosumer at The Berkeley Suite in Glasgow on 11 January.

Everyone’s favourite small club, Sneaky Pete’s, have a bit of a scheduling shake-up for the new year and welcome new party Cultur to the club on 23 January. For their first show in the new slot, they’re setting the bar high and hosting Glasgow DJ and producer extraordinaire S-Type. Edinburgh-born Bobby Perman recently soundtracked 2019's Edinburgh International Film Festival opening movie Boyz in the Wood and released a new EP Beat – his first in four years – on LuckyMe. Perman is rarely spotted on the club circuit these days though, so make sure you get your tickets for this early to avoid disappointment.

Right at the end of the month, on 31 January it’s a big night across Edinburgh. First Edition welcome London-born Joe Seaton, aka Call Super, to The Mash House alongside residents and local support. On the same night, SSL XL host another 140bpm special at The Bongo Club with Sicaria Sound and Riz La Teef. Take your pick or jump between the two and enjoy both; the clubs aren’t that far away after all.
