Soulwax (live) @ SWG3, Glasgow, 15 Jul

David and Stephen Dewaele’s resume is one of high acclaim full of dance magic: together they have toured the globe as 2manydjs; they run their own DEEWEE label; they run the Despacio project with LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy, and together they are Soulwax! Their latest banger of an album, Essential, takes joy in the exploration of the word ‘essential’ with tracks named Essential One, Essential Two and so on all the way through to Essential Twelve. This Soulwax show is an essential for any lover of dance music. Tickets £24.50

Saturn presents Dalfie (Pets Recordings / Glasgow Underground) @ The Gellions, Inverness, 28 Jul

Inverness club night Saturn are back at the end of July for a pay weekend party upstairs in the Gellions Bar on Bridge Street and they’ve invited special guest Dalfie along to lead the way on the tubs. Dalfie, perhaps best known for his regular appearances for Colours at Glasgow’s much missed The Arches, is bringing all things house, techno and everything in between to Saturn and will be joined by the club night’s residents Ross Calder and Darren Hamilton for a party not to be sniffed at. Tickets £7-8

Kyle Falconer @ Church, Dundee, 2 Aug

Kyle Falconer is best known as the frontman of Dundee indie pop-rock band The View, but after five albums with the band 2018 sees the singer-songwriter go it alone, releasing his debut solo record No Thank You via a Pledge Music campaign. Catch him on 2 August at Dundee’s Church where he’ll surely be playing loads of new cuts, but maybe with a smattering of older more familiar tunes thrown in for good measure. Tickets £15

Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival @ Belladrum Estate, Inverness, 2-4 Aug

Paloma Faith, Primal Scream, Amy Macdonald, The Charlatans, Professor Green, Fun Lovin’ Criminals, Beth Orton, Songhoy Blues and Pumarosa are just some of the artists you can expect to enjoy at the tenth instalment of Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival. Frightened Rabbit were also set to perform The Midnight Organ Fight in full at the festival, but sadly due to the loss of much-loved Scott Hutchison this will no longer go ahead. Instead, Bella will be playing the band’s seminal album in full accompanied by a video tribute to Scott. Three-day weekend ticket £146

Renata Rose @ St Vincent’s Chapel, Edinburgh, 10 Aug

This is an incredibly rare visit to the UK for Brazilian singer-songwriter Renata Rose so don’t let the madness of the Edinburgh International Festival or Fringe get on top of you. Rose will be bringing her rabeca and unique polythmic harmonies to Edinburgh in August with her musical influences spanning that of European, African, Arab and indigenous Brazilian. Nominated for Songlines Best Artist Award 2018, this August show in the beautiful surrounds of Edinburgh’s St Vincent’s Chapel is a must. Tickets £18

Jackhammer presents Dave Clarke, Ben Sims and Stephen Brown @ La Belle Angele, Edinburgh, 24 Aug

This one will also feature a second room with a Sleaze Records showcase including sets from Hans Bouffmyhre and Lex Gorrie. Oh, and it’s the festival, so the 5am licence will be in full effect. Tickets £10

Perc (Perc Trax) @ The Tunnels, Aberdeen, 1 Sep

What’s better than one big Scottish promoter putting on a club night? The answer of course is TWO big Scottish promoters putting on a club night.

Perc and his Perc Trax label are respected worldwide so this is set to be quite the night for techno fans. Darrell Hardin, Tim Haux, Greg Gibb and Sean Laird will be on support duty.
