Tim Xavier @ Bigfoot's Tea Party, 3 Sep
The ebullient beast that is Bigfoot’s Tea Party returns to stomp all over the Art School’s chequered floors on Friday 3 September with a special night set up in conjunction with Sleaze Records, property of the always impeccable Hans Bouffmyhre.
Both Bigfoot’s and Sleaze have become essential additions to Glasgow’s alternative club scene over the past couple of years, so it seems only right that the two should pair up to present Tim Xavier, a trend setting techno beast who has been smashing dancefloors sideways for over a decade now.
With a string of releases on a number of high profile labels including Sci-tec, Clink, Cocoon and his own imprint LTD400, as well as providing a masterful addition to Ambivalent’s R U OK Remixes release, Xavier is a much respected man about town. Formerly a proponent of a much harder techno sound, the American born audio wizard has since switched to a more minimalist sound, moving from micro house to minimal with an always underlying deep groove.
