Zine Release // 19 April
Our disco-electro-italo-house-synth-NRG-party baby Hot City has some exciting news this month, graduating from sleepy Sundays to a breezy Thursday evening. It just had too much energy for a Sunday night and now becomes the perfect way to kick start your weekend early. Over the last few months Hot City has welcomed Erol Alkan (Disco 3000), Rory Philips (Durrr), Minival, Josh Jones, Hush Puppy, Youlap, Maryvillians, Delusions of Grandeur and MWX. This high standard of cosmic boogie will be a mainstay as Snafu offer the city an alternative option on Thursdays.
Their first Thursday party will coincide with the new edition of Hot City's Zine - read about time travel, long lost veroucas, the new Chromatics album 'Kill for Love', DOLFiNZ interview, see some artwork and much much more! Come down for the release party to grab a copy.
Blog Launch // 03 May
Hot City will also be launching into the blogosphere in celebration of its move to Thursdays, opening a space where the DJs, staff and customers can post tracks and photos, images and articles relating to the night. The blog will act as a creative outlet for people to connect and share similar to the Zine, except online and more mobile. The following week led by resident MWX, the Hot City crew release their latest edition of their successful ZiNE venture upon the world with artwork, articles, charts and guest reviews. Look out for copies across Aberdeen at EARL, The Athenaeum, Project Slogan and Snafu. To close the month, Gray's School of Art are hosting a charity night - dress up as your alter ego and come disco - Alter Ego Disco - Raising money on the dance floor.
