Zoo Muzik with Gerard Bell aka DJ Panic (Tangent, Sub Club) 

17 July 2009, 11pm-3am 

Blackfriars Underground Club 
36 Bell Street, G1 1LG 

£5 (£3 before midnight) 

This month's musical rampage with GK Machine, B*Licious and Commander Fuck brings a special guest appearance from Gerard Bell aka DJ Panic of Tangent (Sub Club). 
Gerard has been lurking around the underground dance scene for many years, firstly as Brainticket, then as co-founder of the Sonora crew (which Optimo's Twitch was also a founder of). 
Gerard went on to form Tangent which ran at the Sub Club for three years on a Friday night which featured a stellar array of guests, including first appearances in Glasgow of DJ Cosmo, Tim "Love" Lee, DJ Harvey, Legion Of Green Men, Dobre & Jamez and many more and which almost propelled him and DJ-partner A-Man into the star-spangled limelight they deserved! But, as we know, talent is invariably inversely proportional to fame! 
Gerard has also been special guest at numerous Melting Pot boat parties, New Year's parties, one-off events and many many more. This fellow is indeed truly wonderful and his skill at mixing all manner of styles together into a cutting-edge collage of amazingly out-there dance music is as inspiring and pleasureable to watch as it is to hear and dance to! 
Combined with the incredible talents of GK Machine and B*Licious (the latter just back from performing at Croatia's Garden Zadar festival) and their mysterious musical cohort Commander Fuck the night is certain to provide aural pleasures unavailable elsewhere in this dear green place!!

Flyer - 19 June 2009 (Soft Rocks)



Fri 19th June @ Blackfriars Basement, Albion St, Glasgow 
11pm - 3am 

Following the club launch in May, ZooMuzik welcomes Chris G from Brighton collective Soft Rocks to the basement at Blackfriars in Glasgow, for a disco- fuelled DJ set on Friday 19th June. 

Four-piece Brighton collective Soft Rocks are responsible for setting the music and club-land scenes ablaze with their edits, productions and DJ sets. As well as producing and DJing, they’re heavy-duty record collectors who have gained a reputation for discovering many lost classics. Their sets embrace a variety of styles from rock, house, Afro, boogie, disco, cosmic, Balearic, and Italo – if it’s heavyweight music you want– Soft Rocks are out there on their own. 

2008 saw Soft Rocks put out releases on Eskimo, Lo Recordings, and their own label Soft Rocks Recordings – with a fantastic remix for the mighty MGMT, CRUE-L in Japan, and Black Pepper in Italy. Having clocked up performances at many of the leading festivals last year including The Big Chill, Bestival, Connect and the Garden Zadar, and with another five releases scheduled for 2009, it's understandable that the music press have been touting them as new leaders of the leftfield disco scene. 

With support from GK Machine and B*Licious

Zoo Muzik stampedes into Glasgow, 23 May 2009

Eyes and ears peeled for a new night on the town - a musical rampage by the name of Zoo Muzik.

This new night is a collaboration between GK Machine & DJ B*Licious launching on Saturday 23 May and from then on on the third Friday of the month in Blackfriars basement.

The two have often worked together in the past but the time seemed right to combine their talents further. Their musical paths have crossed at seemingly the right time, not just for both of them in their musical development, but as regards the current musical climate, GK's background in fully-charged turbo-tech and BL's in funk has merged on a common ground of psychedelic dancefloor grooves that are not simply for habitual clubbers or weekend hedonists that don't even know why they do it, but for musical movers, alive and kicking, and with a select taste in sound who really know how to party wild....but most of all it's for that often forgotten aspect of commercial clubbing -basic, animalistic, primal, high - the spiritual feeling of a community gathering, moving, feeling dancing as one - a deeper primal connection, where the mind stops and the body starts. It may sound stupid in this day and age but it's a form of ritual that touches us all in some way whether we understand why or not. But we all recognise that it's usually only when you free your self that you realise you were trapped! So we want to help unleash your beast via the art of music. And so we made it....Zoo Muzik!!

Special guests Soft Rocks on June 19 and many more to come, including the legendary Tim "Love" Lee on September 18!!!!!!
