"We do things on our own terms. When we want and how we want. We are in control of our own destiny. We follow our own path. We create. We lead. We achieve. We be who we want to be. We decide what happens next. We Are The Brave!”
Alan Fitzpatrick brings his We Are The Brave label to SWG3 in Glasgow! Joining him for this blockbuster Friday night Techno party are Gary Beck, Harvey McKay, Ronnie Spiteri & Leonardo!
There can be no doubting Alan Fitzpatrick’s position as one of the most influential electronic artists of the moment. Pumped up by yet another series of head-turning productions over the previous twelve months, the Englishman’s profile continues to transition rapidly from the techno underground towards the electronic music main stage
We Are The Brave is a community comprising a record label, clothing range, events brand and art exhibitions. A core that will be the primary home to all of Alan Fitzpatrick’s creative pursuits, from the traditional through to the avant-garde, and featuring contributions from Fitzpatrick and his peers, the edict being that everything should be about having fun while sharing and celebrating moments, music and memories with fellow believers in the Brave ethos.
Gary Beck will be celebrating the release his new Dál Riada album with a special appearance in his home town. As a regular fixture at the world's top clubs and festivals, Gary has long been established as a primary figure in techno. Known and respected for his unique sound and blistering DJ sets, since his emergence onto the scene in 2007 he has gained support from the best names in the business and released music on some of the genre's leading labels, institutions such as Drumcode, Soma, Cocoon and Saved as well as his own BEK Audio imprint.
Harvey McKay emerged from Glasgow's underground clubbing scene to become one of the hottest prospects in electronic music, synonymous with driving, soulful techno. Described by Mixmag as 'probably the techno pages most regular contributor' although he is never one to be pigeonholed by genre, always experimenting sonically, yet always with the driving energy and soul that makes his tracks so unique.
Ronnie Spiteri is a young DJ from Southampton who’s been tearing up the dancefloor with a blend of Deep Underground House and Tech House. During the last few years as well as his Southern residencies he’s played along side many of the big names of today and secured some notable guest appearances.
Leonardo and his music have been a very well kept secret so far. A chance meeting with Alan Fitzpatrick led to music being shared and within a matter of days Fitzpatrick had signed multiple tracks and offered Leonardo the chance to become an integral part of the We Are The Brave roster.
"It was pretty unique how it all came together with Leonardo, but I recognised something special in the music he played me." says Fitzpatrick. "When you hear music this versatile that genuinely makes you stop dead in your tracks its not a hard decision to want to support that talent and be a part of realising their potential. That's what really excites me about the label; when you are working on instinct and putting trust in your feelings."
