Leo Zero at Big In Japan Ldn

Following a killer party with Phat Phil Cooper & Ste Hodge of Kat Records we are super pleased to announce our next party will once again be in good hands with a special set from Leo Zero!! Friday 26th November - save the date!

Leo Elstob Aka Leo Zero is undoubtedly the UKs most productive and in-demand Remixers, not to mention one of the worlds leading DJs. The man himself comes hits Big In Japan to play a special set in The Book Club’s intimate basement space.

Having re-worked a string of A-list pop and rock artists, earlier this year we were treated to Super Edits Vol.1 of which highlights included Stevie vs Empire of the Sun – Jammin on a dream, The Police, Freedie Murcury, Bat For Lashes & Prince vs Beck – Rasberry Beck. Before you know it he’s back on another release this Nov as part of the Strut series Disconnect and is set to contain some real gems from the darker more obscure corners of his record collection.

Alongside Leo we are pleased to be joined by our second guest Andrew Thompson of Huntley & Palmers Audio Club. Having relocated to London the H&P nights have been causing quite a stir in Glasgow with guests including James Holden, Pilooski, Four Tet, Rebolledo, Aeroplane & Todd Terje to name a few!
