Location: Glasgow, Scotland
If you walk down some unassuming stairs from Glasgow’s Jamaica Street, you’ll find yourself in a low-ceilinged basement decked out with a Martin Audio soundsystem and stripped-back industrial aesthetic. The music is all-consuming, while the vibes are similarly thick and saturated. Operating as a speakeasy jazz venue in the late ’50s and taking on several guises since, Sub Club has been part of the Scottish dance music establishment since 1987. It has spurted out an excess of internationally renowned residents — including Harri & Domenic, SLAM, Eclair Fifi, and Sensu — securing the venue as a permanent fixture on the clubbing map.
