“I wouldn’t want to be like Dixon or Optimo, it’s too much like hard work what they do, travelling five countries in a week. We’re 15 minutes from my house, my mates are there, the beers are cold, the music’s good the soundsystem’s good, wake up on a Sunday, what a night.”
Now 21 years into their Subculture residency at Sub Club, we could spend all day describing how and why Harri & Domenic have become such a Glaswegian institution, but nothing sums up their ethos more than the above quote from their RA Exchange. The pair epitomise everything we love about club culture and we were fortunate to spend the evening with them in Bristol this summer, to witness this first hand. After closing our day party, they politely declined a taxi to the afterparty, opting to buy some tinnies and walk it instead. We joined them and so began a hysterical, Fosters-fuelled 30 minute stumble across Bristol.
We vowed to welcome them back to another party soon, but in the meantime, we asked them to put a little playlist together. Unsurprisingly, they opted for a toung-in-cheek theme, as they explain in more detail: “These are all tracks that we like that are around the ten minutes and still hold a dance floor, thereby giving one the chance to go to the toilet while DJing and get back in time to mix in the next record.”
Harri & Domenic play the Warm 16th Birthday at Bussey Building (28th Nov).
