(Get The Records On/The ‘freak-beats’ club – basque country/Glasgow)


My name is Aitor, I’m originally from the Basque Country but live in Glasgow, Scotland since 2004.

After having collected vinyl records for most of my life, I started DJin regularly in a Glasgow bar/pre-club called ‘Get The Records On’ with my friend Jamie Kidd and later with Craig Reece. Now since few months ago I DJ with the same two individuals in a club called ‘Freak-beats’ were we play freakbeats sounds a plenty, or whatever falls in that category depending on our mood on the night.

The best thing about djin is that you can play out loud your favourite songs without having to worry about the neighbours. I like many different styles but If you ask me I prefer 60’s punk to psych-pop.

So far I have had the chance to play records in various nights in Glasgow such as Friday Street, EWO, Grow Your Own, Shout Bamalama and now Glasgow’s own psych weekender! I’m really looking forward for this weekend and I think is going to be even better than last year!

These guys will delight your senses with all manner of mind expanding sounds, from psych & freakbeat to popsike, with a healthy dose of funk.

Some words from the men themselves…

Paddy, Tell us a bit about your DJ style, what can the Double Sight crowd expect?

Hi. I’m not Sarge. My DJ style is the essence of Crippen in the section labelled Mods. I also heart psych funk, funky psych, & psikey phunk.

What are you looking forward to about Glasgow, and the Double Sight Weekender?

I’m mostly looking forward to Glasgow’s excellent impression of Belfast. And deep fried creme eggs.  And  I guess this is the first weekend of its type in them there parts, also hooking up with our chums, the tunage, & the ample parking. And you organised it.

What are your top 5 spins for the weekend?

The Samurai – Fresh Hot Breeze of Summer
Peshka – La Danse du Ventre

Sarge, Tell us a bit about your DJ style, what can the Double Sight crowd expect?

DJ style is hard funky ass psychedelic club stuffs with phasing, hammond, bongos, flues, wah-wah guitars and big drums.  Popsiek don’t send me much, it’s gotta be a heavy groovy thang.

What are you looking forward to about Glasgow?

I love Glasgow, it’s my kind of place; adaptable, innovative, unique and it has something for everyone, whatever you like to do!  Scotland’s largest city, it’s home to over 600,000 people.  Undergoing a massive transition from it’s industrial past to European City of Culture in 1990 and UK city of Architecture and Design in 1999; this is a beautiful place.  As well as appealing to the visual senses it’s renowned for it’s music too.  With one of the most vibrant nightlife and club scenes anywhere, all the big acts play there, like me.

A word about Double Sight…

How a group of mod bums and beatniks wound up in a Glasgow garage and psych weekender is a mystery.  What happens next will blow their minds!  This is the spot, right here on the dancefloor, where Dr. Frankenmod had his crazy frug.  I hear they had soem wild stuff happen.  Dr Frankenmod is hot on the trail of this group of misfits.  He’s protecting what’s his, and they’ll be lucky if they escape Double Sight with their lives.  This is where the Modboy said he saw those wild lights.  But I don’t see… Wait a minute!  What’s this?  It’s the Modboy.  And he’s been torn apart by the funk!  [Choking sounds.]

Can this ragtag group of deadbeats find the acid funk before Frankenmod find them?  And if they do, will the mysterious mod psych dancer with phasing drive them mad?  Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!  The Doctoer is out… far out!  Come check out the Double Sight Garage & Psych Weekender before it checks you out!  Coming soon.  Check your local listings.

First of our local guest DJs is Andrew Symington, the man behind Divine, Glasgow’s longest running club night.  Divine celebrated it’s 20th year at the Art School in 2010.  Unfortunately, the union is closing for refurb in June, so the future of the club is uncertain at time of press.  Make sure you don’t miss this chance to hear Andrew spinning the 45s which have made Divine such an institution!

Tell us a bit about your DJ syle, what can the Double Sight crowd expect?

I’ve got pretty eclectic taste and collect all sorts of styles – from acid-folk to Detroit-techno! At DIVINE, I spin mainly 60s and 70s psych rock, northern soul, deep funk and dynamite ska. But for Double Sight I’ll be focusing (geddit?) on the garage, psych and freakbeat side of things. As you’d very much hope.

What are you looking forward to about Glasgow?

You’re always guaranteed a great crowd – friendly, knowledgeable,
enthusiastic and open-minded. Plus, I can stagger home afterwards…

What appeals to you most about the Double Sight Weekender?
