Cleoslaptra – Welcome to the Pleasure Garden 16th January, 2014

One of the new Thursday night Pleasure Garden residents Cleoslaptra introduces herself with this mini-mix of tracks that she says “people will either want to dance to or have
sex to…or both, you be the judge.” Her Jackie Your Body radio show has been running for four years, traversing footwork, juke, house and all kinds of experimental sleaze. She says the motivation behind the mix “comes from my appreciation of girls letting go on the dancefloor to tracks which people usually raise an eyebrow or screw their face up at – I say FU to all that posturing.”

You could say she’s part of a new generation, she was only just starting out when the doors closed on the decrepit old union building on Renfrew St., too young to be granted entry (regularly), her reputation as one of the most effective DJs at The Art School really flourished in 2013. Security were called to remove people from the stage when she played at our Halloween party and she went in just as hard for the Sauchiehall closing party.

This isn’t throwback music, this isn’t an all-vinyl-boys-club, this is redressing the balance, this is her own thing and it’s designed to make you move.
