This Saturday, Inverness boys SoundClash kick off 2014 with their first event of the year with special guest Patty.


Patty is well known on the Aberdeen scene and has been a resident at top nightclub Snafu since 2009 where he has played alongside top DJ’s such as Jackmaster, Tiger & Woods and Felix da Housecat. He has also played at the Rockness and Wizard festivals.

Patty has also been responsible for many of Aberdeen’s cutting edge underground parties over the last few years.

Late last year, Patty started up Needa Records, a Scottish label which promises the highest quality underground electronic music and has already seen some top notch releases.

Joining Patty on the line-up is local producer, Mark Mackenzie. Mark had a great 2013, playing Rockness, Belladrum and various other venues and also featuring on Radio 1’s In New Music We Trust under his former guise, Them & Us.

Mark has already kicked off 2014 with some serious, high quality productions and remixes. This year is going to be a huge one for him so expect big things.

Last but by no means least, finishing off the line-up is one half of SoundClash, Ally Ridgers. Ally needs no introduction really, a familiar name on various line-ups in the Highlands, he has supported acts such as DJ Yoda, Benji Boko and next week will be supporting Belgian duo, 2 Many DJ’s. Ally is also behind the popular Monster FM DJ Showcase which takes part in September every year, gathering together some of the finest DJ’s in the Highlands and beyond for exclusive mixes.
