CLUB 10-86: PIG & DAN
VERY few record labels become as iconic as fashion houses such as Prada and Channel, the exceptions being Sven Vath’s Cocoon, Deep Dish’s Yoshitoshi, Slam’s Soma and John Digweed’s Bedrock.
There are even fewer producers who have smashed the charts on all four imprints... Pig & Dan have.
The pair headline Club 10-86 tomorrow as they make their Scottish debut with a marathon three hour set. Bullet dodge label boss Gareth Whitehead heads up the supporting line up of DJs. Expect a heavy dose of deep, hypnotic house and cutting-edge progressive techno.
