“With the start of the new academic year upon us, what better way to kick things off than with the first instalment of Oscillate SEASON 2. Rated Edinburgh’s most smile inducing, body grooving, guaranteed marble losing night by anyone with good taste. For the start of the new season we are delighted to be able to welcome Session Victim to our adopted home The Bongo Club. These guys need no introduction to many; however, for those unfamiliar with their work, CRACK magazine recently said: “from their enthusiastic off-kilter live shows to their signature brand of sunny, sample-laden house, Hauke and Matthias have seemingly nailed the formula for inducing wall-to-wall smiles on a dancefloor”. With a record collection covering several decades of hip hop, funk, disco and soul and as well as house and techno cuts, it’s Session Victim’s passion for uncovering dusty vinyl treasures and the feeling that can be captured on a miniature moment in wax that inspires both their DJ sets and production environment. Foolish not to mention the calibre of their production ability, with hits such as ‘Good Intentions’ and ‘Never Forget’ these guys will have the floor moving all night.” Tickets / Facebook

For the first of three nights in Wack’s Autumn Bongo Club residency, they are delighted to welcome our first international guest, Marquis Hawkes.
Mark Hawkins is one of the most consistent producers in the scene today, having released classic after classic for the best part of a decade. Marquis Hawkes is his house centred alias, which boasts an impressive release history. His producing style centres around punchy and pumping house, a style of music that they identify strongly with. If you have been to a Wack night before, it is guaranteed you have heard one of his tunes before. His tracks are absolute set weapons.
As a DJ, Marquis Hawkes promises to bring the party wherever he goes. There is no messing around with his mixing style; straight up movers and shakers from start to finish. Expect to dance, very hard.
