On 9th March, an exciting new show will be taking over King Tut’s. Expect banging tunes, audio visual wonders and great beer, thanks to Coors Light!
We caught up with Neil Macdonald, Process Booker/DJ, to hear more about what to expect from the Murlo A/V show.
KT’s – Hey! How’s things?
NM - I'm good, thank you. Lots going on at the moment, far beyond our usual remit, so good to take some time out and catch up on things! There has been a lot of hard work put in to get to where we are so far with the show but I've just seen the flyer for the Murlo A/V gig with the Process and LuckyMe logos on the back, and it looks amazing!
KT’s – So tell us… what’s your involvement with King Tut’s and the Murlo A/V show?
NM - I’ve been DJing at Tut’s for a while and Davie [Venue Manager] asked me a while ago if I’d like to look into booking some shows at the venue. The first show I booked was Jacob Yates and The Pearly Gate Lock Pickers who played with St John’s Ambience and Fat Black Cats. It was Fat Black Cats’ first show in Glasgow and they’ve now done loads of shows so it was great to be a part of that. I always wanted to do something totally different from the ‘norm’ and that’s when I thought it would be cool to speak to Murlo as I’m a huge fan. Turns out he has this AV show ready so it worked out perfectly. It’s something so different to what people expect to see at King Tut’s so I’m really excited to see it all come together.
KT’s – You’re a true supporter of finding the freshest talent to emerge – what drew you to Murlo?
NM - At first it was always the labels he's been on and the people he worked with, then his Boiler Room set and it just went from there. Having the AV show just swung it! He's a really talented illustrator, so he's made this film to go along with his set, which will play on a big screen, and I wanted to get that for the Process. I play a lot of his music when I'm DJing and this show certainly fits in with the whole idea of bringing something very different to King Tut's.
KT’s – What should everyone attending expect from the show?
NM - I'm not sure, because as of now this show has only happened at the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London so I would definitely say to expect something totally outwith the normal gig experience. I'm glad he's doing something as creative as possible, and contorting what people should expect from a live electronic show. People are getting tired of watching one person stand behind their equipment nodding their head. This is going to be pretty special, and getting the LuckyMe guys to play is just great. As much as it's a 'local' label, LuckyMe is a label that has unquestionably changed the way people think of, and approach, electronic music and hip-hop globally.
KT’s – What would you say to convince those people who are considering coming along?
NM - Listen to Murlo, S-Type, Inkke or The Blessings, and imagine hearing that on an amazing sound system.
KT’s – Any last words?
NM - Is that a threat?
