The legendary UK techno duo of Stuart McMillan and Orde Meikle have travelled far and wide, touring Australia, the USA , Europe, South America and Japan and they hold residencies at 3 of the UK's best clubs (Pressure & Return To Mono in their home town of Glasgow and Fabric in the nation's Capital, London.)

SLAM ON FIRE: 2008/2009 has been one of their busiest periods ever. Performing dynamic sets at many of the world's leading festivals including Monegros, Oxygen, Bestival, 10 days off, Extrema, Glastonbury and T In The Park, they have also played at some of the world's best clubs including the legendary Womb In Tokyo, Cocoon in Frankfurt, Rex in Paris and Berlin's infamous Watergate and Berghain to name a few. At the end of 2008 they celebrated 10 years of their own club Pressure, with a Mixmag cover mount CD and a string of hit releases including "Variance", "We Doin' This Again", "Hot Knives", "Ghost Song" and "City Destroyer".

PARAGRAPH: Their new label Paragraph sees the pair focus on their own productions entirely. The first release "City Destroyer", with its sinister pitched vocals and crafty, crisp and skippy electronic soundscapes, secured club plays from the likes of Richie Hawtin, Adam Beyer and Laurent Garnier. Paragraph 2, "Hot Knives", was even bigger staying in the Beatport top 10 for 10 weeks with plays from just about every big name including Carl Craig, Anja Schneider, Dave Clarke and Dubfire. There will be an album with an exciting new concept based around Paragraph in 2010.

REMIXES & RELEASES: This surge in activity has put them in demand as remixers with fellow big names such as Josh Wink, Paul Ritch, Pan Pot and Radio Slave calling on their services. On top off all this they still find the time for new projects like Paragraph records. New releases include Paragraph 4, featuring Slam tracks "Variance" and "We Doin' This Again", and Slam remixes of Samuel L Session "Can You Relate", Paul Ritch "The Wolf" and Fabio Gianelli "Apparlas" on Material. They have also completed an EP, along with Rejected's Joris Voorn & Edwin Oosterwal, for Podium boss Len Faki's Figure label. SLAM have just remixed Josh Wink ‘Everybody to the Sun' for Ovum and they are currently finishing remixes for The Black Dog, Silicone Soul and Steve Lawler.

SOMA RECORDS : SLAM are also the proud co-owners of Soma Records, which, in its 18th year, continues to be one of the world's finest purveyors of cutting edge electronic music, with recent releases and remixes from Silicone Soul, the Black Dog, Mihalis Safras, Mark Broom, Joris Voorn, Prompt, Samuel L Session, Christian Prommer, Radio Slave, Paul Ritch, D'Julz, Adam Beyer, Steve Rachmad, Itamar Sagi and Funk D Void.

SLAM GIGS: During the summer, Slam curated and played at the 15,000 capacity Slam Tent at Scotland's T in the Park festival (which they have organised since 1997) and they also recently headlined the G stage at the Glastonbury festival as well as performing live at Awakenings and Extrema in Holland and Space in Ibiza. They also hosted a special Soma Records showcase at La Terrrazza in Barcelona during Sonar, and have recently returned from a very successful Australian tour. Slam are residents at Pressure & Return To Mono in Glasgow and Fabric in London.
