Glasgow is not without problems. As in most cities, gentrification threatens its creative communities. It is forcing up rents and forcing artists out, hence the migration of creatives to the Southside (south of the river Clyde). Meanwhile, a 3am club curfew means that hard-partying Glasgow has to play cat-and-mouse with the fun police. Such licensing restrictions have spawned a sub-culture of ad hoc gigs in grey area spaces, illegal after-hours events and raucous late- night house parties. “Going back to people’s houses and bonding over music is a big part of Glasgow’s club culture and how electronic music has developed here,” says Chater. Yet, laments Keith McIvor – aka JD Twitch, half of the city’s legendary Optimo DJ duo, club and label – a lot of that “brilliant” talent “Music, the visual arts goes unnoticed: “There is something in the Glasgow mentality.
