about // Subcity Radio: Flail Your Limbs

subcity poster

After our sell-out party with the Hill 52 Radio crew we are back at The Vic Bar on Thursday the 16th of November!

>> Horreurscopes (subcity.org/shows/horreurscopes) >> Babestation (subcity.org/shows/babestation) >> Trainwreck (subcity.org/shows/trainwreck)

Horreurscopes Up first, reading the stars, is Horreurscopes. Saying no to chin-stroking electronic staidness: Horreurscopes is serious about spotlighting marginalised creators, overlooked underground productions and new releases. ♈

Babestation Not the Babestation you're probably thinking of... 😉 This Babestation are your two favourite Glasgow-based glamour girls b2b. They'll be playing music created exclusively by femmes and LGBT+ musicians, mixing sexy R&B with smooth electronica, as well as the occasional pop banger thrown in for good measure.

Trainwreck Headlining for one night only is Chicago-based legend Jakey Witz aka ATZ, playing his Scottish debut.

Flail Your Limbs

£3 before midnight / £4 after 11 pm - 3 am

about // Web Team Applications


Subcity's website is the backbone of all its operations. Everything we do is broadcasted directly from subcity.org so we need to keep it up to date and fast. Get onboard and you will have the opportunity to influence where thousands of people click their mouse and how they engage with their favourite shows.

You'll need to be able to develop new features for the website, or even new websites. Check out our guide to see what we're capable of doing in a few short weeks.

Grounding in HTML, CSS, Python and Django is key. Knowledge of using and administering Linux alongside Git version control is desired, but not necessary. Most importantly, we need someone who is self motivated to find the solutions to their own problems.

LET’S GET READY 2 RUMBLE. For one night only Subcity Radio presents 100% BEEF! A four hour, no holds barred, straight up smackdown. We are opening the warehouse doors to a land of spandex, body slams and foam fingers, letting the beef run wild. The night will see station DJs old and new pitted up against each other, flexing their finest tunes fighting to make your body groove. Head to head, back to back, and cheek to cheek. Things will be heating up behind the scenes, and the steaks have never been higher. Banners Encouraged.


Round 1 /// Grand Unify Grooves vs Pabs Debussy (Franz Ferdinand / FFS / They're Only Records Paul)

First to the ring, Grand Uppercut Grooves take on Paul ‘The Drumminator’ Thomson to bring a below the belt battle of unadulterated disco from this cosmos and beyond.


Round 2 /// HUSH (MUSIC, Please! / Maxi Dance Pool / RPZ) vs Bleaker + DJ Laboonier (The Rainbow Dome / Gang Fatale / Hex / UTTU)

Glasgow heavyweight and sensual superstar HUSH is challenged by the yung (and handsome) double team of Bleaker and Laboonier. Who takes the wheels of steel is anyone’s game, but this face off is a guaranteed to excite with grooves and grinds from all manner of electronica.


Round 3 /// Solid Blake (Apeiron Crew) vs Cleoslaptra (Jackie Your Body / Self Service / PVC)

Shipping in from Copenhagen, Solid Blake is back on home turf for a one-off B2B brawl with queen of dark and dank Cleoslaptra in a round of hot and heavy, four to the floor techno to get the fists pumping.

Subcity presents: Last Night a DJ Took My Life

Subcity presents: Last Night a DJ Took My Life
Friday 30th October
The Buff Club

The year is 3015. Things are pretty shit.

After the collapse of Earth’s interstellar uplink in 2985, the dark ages began. The three decades that followed were a waking nightmare, as people took to the streets in protest against the draconian regime of Earth-President/DJ Anne Droid. In response, the government declared a state of emergency and seized control of all mainstream media sources. The curfews got stricter and the punishments harsher as more and more of the people’s freedoms were revoked and nobody was able to speak up in their defence.

Earth year 2995 marked the dawn of a new horizon. It started as a faint crackle on the airwaves which grew to a great cacophony as Subcity Radio found its form. At last the people had a voice.

The year is 3015. You wander the streets of Glasgow looking for a place you’re not sure exists. Staggering through a mess of debris and deprivation, you trace the neon-lit streets in your mind looking for the right path. Eventually you come across an image you’ve seen before; almost a circle but not quite. You approach the door and a figure moves towards you from the shadows. A harsh voice croaks the word 'Password?' and you stumble over your response. 'Now is not a time for nerves', you think to yourself as you stutter 'f-f-free… freeform or death'. The doors open.

Inside you find a den of carnal pleasures; the underground resistance to a culture of repression. Revellers release their inhibitions to electronic grooves and sonic textures that before this point you could only dream of hearing. This is what it feels like to be free.

The euphoria is short lived, however, as a creeping sense of dread flows throughout your body. Something is amiss. This fear is an almost physical sensation. You question your sanity as you try to fight the phobia.

Something is amiss...

A champion of genuinely experimental house and techno, Narratives will be fuelling the boogie furnace with a selection of deep rhythms unearthed from dark places.

QMU Posters

Facebook Event

After a hiatus of several years, we have the pleasure of announcing our glorious return to the QMU, where we’ll be bringing a stellar line-up of station DJ’s to blow the butt out of Fresher’s Week.

However, this time we’re bringing backup; our partners-in-rhyme and fellow good-cop charity organisation Philanthrobeats have got our backs covered. Not content with just one partner, we’ve also buddied up with Glasgow record label Handpicked.

Come join us as we prove that even after 20 years of freeform radio, we’re still not too old for this shit. The party is spread over 3 levels, so let the charity-based carnage commence.

//// Qudos ////


A regular fixture on the Subcity schedule, and with good reason. Usually a fan of chilled-out baby-making music, he’s decided to scrap the build-up, and play an hour of club classics. Don’t expect any warning when he kicks it up a notch, but do expect to freak.


Lava Lava are Barrientos and Divers, these guys play some of the most danceable music designed for dark basements and enlightened minds. We’ve managed to snag them for a Saturday night. Expect anything possible, but most importantly, expect to dance.


Straight outta Paris, this new kid on the block keeps it old-school. If pianos, classic dance and Fat Boy Slim are your thing then stay downstairs to hear him make his Subcity club debut.

//// Jim’s Bar ////


Glasgow’s premier hip-hop cassette collective, Handpicked have moved from strength to strength in recent years. Always interesting and eclectic, their influence stretches from dancefloors to outdoors, with a solid street presence cemented by their signature buggy-boom-box. Keep your eyes peeled for their guerilla PR, it really makes them stick out in a crowd.

//// Scran ////


Started as a way to effect worldwide change via the medium of music, Philanthrobeats are a shining star of the Glasgow music & charity scene. Famous both for their immense productions and the message they send, Philanthrobeats are a ray of positive energy piercing through the grey Glaswegian skyline. Radiating their classic feel-good vibes across the entire building, they make partying hard about giving harder.

The Rainbow Dome

Come ready for grooves as smooth as molasses. Known ecelecticists Bleaker & DJ Laboonier bring the best from their extensive collections, melting hearts and melting dancefloors.


The 199X boys may have still been trading Pokemon cards & wearing light up trainers during the golden age but they definitely know their [good rapper] from their [generic shit rapper with similar sounding name]. Keeping alive that OG sound, yo.

Deep Brandy Album Cuts

DBAC is like ronseal for rap music (does what it says on the tin lol). From bootleg booty shakers to the rawest joints on the webisphere; she puts the fresh in FRESH2DEATH. This girl’s game is always on fleek.


“Bass. How low can you go?!” is the question Rumours have been asking since they started on the station. They found out sometime in 2010 but have refused to let the secret out… until now.

= The Vic Bar =

Philanthrobeats Resident DJs

After three long years of selling out non-profit clubnights across Glasgow and preaching at afterparties, Philanthrobeats are finally tall enough to ride the wave up Scott Street and into the debaucherous world of The Art School. Enter our creation, take a bite from the apple and follow us in our downward spiral from freshness to deathness, whilst our Resident DJs provide more sonic sleaze than Sodom and Gomorrah combined. Expect raunchy disco, impressive visuals and a hell of a lot of fresh air.

Philanthrobeats are a charity and social enterprise formed in Glasgow in 2012. Over the past 3 years we have organised music, art and club events, and have collaborated with communities to support individuals in need through providing an open platform for free expression and activism.
