Wildkats, Thunder Disco Club, Lewiss Jamess
Last month saw the launch of Glasgow City Social Club with Alex Arnout and this month we are excited to welcome WiLDKATS to continue the party....
WiLDKATS are a production collective formed in East London when Edinburgh DJ's Stuart Sandeman & Scott Dickie met US import Corey Baker.
After sharing ideas over a booming warehouse bass bin they decided to get into the studio. Pulling influences from 80s Funk and New York Disco they began to develop their sound; an energetic combination of groove led house and dubby disco with their trademark WiLDKAT baseline. Inspired by the new wave of contemporary house music fusing 80s drums, synths and bass sounds, WiLDKATS have put their own stamp on this with their catchy edits and raw dance floor killers.
Since their inception last summer their tracks have caught the attention of some of the biggest names in the dance music community with support coming from Hot Natured, Wolf + Lamb, Crosstown Rebels, Lee Curtiss, Droog, Jamie Jones, M A N I K and Soul Clap. All of which have tried and tested these across some of the globes most prolific dance floors from Sonar to Burning Man, Glastonbury and Ibiza's mecca DC10.
WiLDKATS have a created quite a buzz amongst dance community and are currently riding a wave of hype following there recent releases 'System Crank' and 'Perpetrating' on Hot Creations and Hot Waves. As WiLDKATS put it themselves...
"We are not a cheerleading team, We are not a sports team, We are not a fictional superhero team, We are not a high school Musical!
We like baselines, we like synths, we like groove, we like stabs, we like disco, we like house, we like techno, we like expression, we like harmony, we like pads, we like voice, we like diagonais, we like edits, we like colour, we like loops, we like tomorrow, we like spots, we like stripes, we like steps, we like motion, we like shape, we like to run naked in the desert.
We like to make music to make you dance!"
We like the sound of their ethos!
Warming up for WiLDKATS we have Thunder Disco Club's very own wildkat, Jube... Having recently secured a residency at Subclub and with plans for Sonar and beyond, their disco infused club night goes from strength to strength.
