Dream at Millionaires, Thursday, has designs on the acid scene but delves under the superficial and obligatory to provide Edinburgh with a vivid new club. From their own mouths the dream is based on the hugely successful ‘shoom‘ club in London which introduced Balearic sounds to the UK. As well as Balearic and Acid House tunes, Dream plays deep house and bangra, which is an appealing and danceable Indian club sound. The diversity for a venue in this vein gives the staying power needed for what in actual fact isthe first weekly all-nighter in Edinburgh. Featured during the evening are live acid performances- dancers and special effects which create an informal atmosphere, even uninhibited. Dream will serve as a platform to launch even bigger and better events under the banner of Pfantasia. Enjoy. (Stuart Raiker).
Thursdays at Panama Jax.
‘Specialists in electronic beats’ it boasts on Club Electra’s posters and tickets. This means they will be playing all types of electronic music which acid house has helped bring into fashion, especially New Beat. New Beat hails from Belgium and it can be described as a mix between European electro and Indie chart dance.
Club Electra‘s DJs Keith, Bill and Bobby are all regulars at the Backroom in Edinburgh on Saturdays. They have been trying to mix in electronic music with their regular ‘alternative' material with limited success. So when the opportunity arose to open up a new club in Glasgow, they saw the possibilities to branch out with a new audience.
It has two major assets: the first is that it‘s a totally original dance club for Glasgow. No funk orsoul is played, and any clubthat manges to fit in Tackhead, Kraftwerk and DAF can't be bad. Secondly is it has a great atmosphere, particularly when they turn the lights
offand the only light comes from the groovy images being displayed by the projectoron the wall.
If given a fair chance, this could prove to be one of the best clubs around. Well worth a visit. (Colin Steven)
