Telefunken Xmas Special with Harri (SubClub) and Yogi Haughton (HouseWorks)
Friday December 12th
After yet another incredible night of top class house music featuring Brazil's Jamanta Crew at The Caves, we’re excited to host our official Telefunken Xmas 2008 at Cabaret Voltiare on Friday December 12th.
This month we've decided to keep it local and booked two of the UK's most prolific and longest serving dance music veterans, Sir Harri SubClub and Yogi Haghton.
Main Room: House
Yogi Haugton - (Northern Soul, Funk and Rare Groove)
Harri is perhaps the most influential DJ to ever emerge out of Glasgow’s vibrant underground house scene. In a career that spans nearly 20 years, Harri has remained three steps ahead of almost every other DJ but always perfectly in step with his dancefloor at his weekly residency, Subculture, the flagship Saturday night at the Sub Club, which is internationally regarded as one of the most credible and forward thinking club nights in the world.
Harri never fails to engage with his crowd by delivering music that transcends musical boundaries and feels relevant and cutting edge without descending into self-indulgence. With his energetic style and technical virtuosity combined with his passion for the music he plays, we welcome back Harri for his second outing at Telefunken and if it’s even half as good as the last time he played, we’re in for a very special night.
Dubbed by DJ Magazine as the John Peel of dance music, Yogi Haughton is Scotland's number one collector of black music and a well respected broadcaster and journalist. His roots are firmly implanted in the Jazz/Funk and Northern Soul scenes after frequenting such legendary establishments as Wigan Casino, Blackpool Mecca, Rafters and Legends. His schooling and passion for great dance music began early and has never relented.
Yogi has been credited as being the man who gave house and techno music to Scotland via his legendary Edinburgh based Hoochie Coochie club in the mid 80s and as the first resident at Glasgows infamous Sub Club. By DJing at 14 of the legendary Southport Weekenders and several Prestatyn Weekenders his extensive knowledge, experience and ability to play any sphere of black music at the highest level has gained him many loyal fans. At the weekenders Yogi & Norman Jay's all-night Pot Pourri sets became one of the most essential sessions. "It was amazing, thousands of people into every sphere of black music and hungry for rare shit came to see us.” said Yogi.
Yogi is without doubt Scotland's most influential DJ and our Godfather of modern clubbing.
