TRONIC - April 8th @ Brunswick, Basura Blanca

Basura Blanca @ Brunswick
April 8th
Doors 9pm - 2am
Entry £5

Techno flows through Glasgow’s club and venue arteries, as the city’s heart beats for music. Tronic live and breathe for those new found electronic sounds and in our next gig we bring together some of Glasgow’s finest techno and electronic producers.


Techno with a dark edge, innovative, minimal yet warm. Clichéd annotations, but entirely merited ones none the less. Voltergeist (aka Shaun Dowse) knows the Scottish electronic scene more than most, running his own label, Microrave Records and from successes through his previous project Emotiqoun.

Voltergeist has forged a name for himself as a first class producer of dark minimal techno. Not only this, he also has several high profile remixes to his name recently. The most notable being the excellent "Cut By The Brakes" by Grand National. Radio 1 DJs have given air play to his work and the man has even had interest from the likes of Ministry. More recent activity saw Shaun as a chief organiser in pulling the Glasgow Sound Cloud community together as part of International Sound Cloud meet up day.

Headlining on the night, this will be a set you will want to be present for, so get your techno hats on and get on that dance floor folks, cause he aint letting up.

I am Blip

Blip boy, now man, but with the heart of an 808 drum machine.
The techno Trojan returns to the scene where it all started five years ago and now with a reputation as one of the best live acts in the country.

A short break from the live scene and now set again to explode back into action for the Tronic crew. The man knows no boundaries when it comes to filthy fat relentless naughtiness.

Pure sounding in his creativity and productions skills when it comes to electro and techno there have been some big nights in the past for I am Blip. Playing along-side Sebastian Leger, Si Begg, DMX Crew and Alex Smoke to name but a few.

Running his own meaty club night (BEEF) he’s no butcher when it comes to cutting up his sets, free flowing and seamless in amongst the sweaty raised fists, see you down the front!


A young yet extremely talented Glasgow producer, ESQ (aka Greg Peebles) is a master of the electro / techno genre. He is a major player within the Heartbeats Collective and also a regular DJ for the Spectra nights in Blackfriars.

Playing a live set for us down at TRONIC this month, ESQ will be filling our ears with the sounds of some top electro with an ESQ twist. Watch out for his track "Elephant" to be released on the next up and coming Heartbeats compilation which as always will be a ‘free to download album’ featuring some of the best producers Glasgow has to offer.

ESQ is one of those rare finds, effortless in his production and playing out club sets. When you know it all just fits together. You have to be down for this set when it goes off, as there are more than a few of us that reckon he will make it huge.


Think little fluffy sound clouds and add some very intelligent dance music and you’ll start to get the effect from this Glasgow based producer, who has recently caught our attention.

Mixing ambient sounds with guitar and beautifully crafted samples, this producer promises to take us on a journey of wonder and carefree. Get-Effect will be showing us all the beauty to be found within electronica music.

A Tronic debutant, warmly welcomed into the community, will be kicking off the night so get down early for the full effect.


Our guest DJ comes courtesy of the Spectra crew. Spectra now one of Glasgow’s favourite club nights that fuse top DJs and local artists, strengthening the electronic collective and community in the progress. B-Tone is one of the main organisers of the night and a product of the fizzing scene in Glasgow right now.

Regularly taking up a spot at his own night you can catch B-Tone at his monthly residence at Spectra. He is also involved in the Heartbeats Collective releasing his own creations. With an eclective taste ranging from ambient electronica right through to some pounding dirty electro, expect to be taken on a journey through the world of electronica, getting you all warm and fuzzy and in the mood for the live acts on the bill.

Those craving techno and with the highest of electronic musical needs, this is a night to satisfy. Innovative sounds added with visual art supplied by live VJ on the night Euan Mackenzie.
