A Night with HUSH.
We are joined by HUSH. One of the city’s longest standing quality underground DJs. HUSH aka Alan Miller has been a fixture at some of Glasgow’s most reputable parties over the years, holding down residencies at the Arches (Death Disco), The Art School (RPZ/Maxi Dance Pool) and Subcity (Music Please!).
Ahead of his set at the Duck, we asked Alan to compile a playlist of signature HUSH tracks, the likes of which were sure to have been heard blasting across dance floors at Death Disco, RPZ, Maxi Dance Pool etc or through the airwaves on his Subcity show.
With such a huge and varied record collection we can’t wait to see which way HUSH takes the Flying Duck basement on the night of the 5th.
A Night With HUSH 5th July FREE ENTRY
1. Islands In Space – Perrey & Kingsley
Seminal oddities from the very earliest days of electronic music, a classic difficult listening gem.
2. Funking Subway – Opel Bastard.
Finish analogue tech-funk rawness from 1998. A promo joy from my music PRing days.
3. Chicago Calypso – Ju-Par Universal Orchestra.
I’d been after this slink slab of bongo’n’flutes magic for about a decade before a highly affordable re-issue come along.
4. You Take some Lentils… And You Take Some Rice – Eurythmics.
Really experimental Eurythmics b-sides is totally a thing. Check more out.
5. Tum Aur Main – Ahsa Bhosle & Bappi Lahiri
A romantic, sensual and twangy tempo change treat from the extraordinarily prolific Lahiri. With expected arpeggiated interludes and synthy sound effects.
6. Mandala – Sally Oldfield.
Yup, Mr UK prog’s sister, with an impressive voice and a unfashionably folk-mystic outlook in 1980.
7. Der Stern, Der Nie Vergeht – Mark Barrott
luscious melodies, sensory replications of an ancient forest, calming.
8. Take Me With You – Sammi Clark
Lebanon’s most successful singer, with a woozy and eccentric soundtrack cut.
9. Fuck Face – Organs Of Love.
Waves of pelvic pleasure, presented by possibly my favourite Glasgow band in the last ten years.
10. Null Null – Fancy
Bizarre one-off slice of italo/cambidian (possibly?) hybrid dance pop. A gem.
