The future of Thursday nights changes this week with the launch of a new club night in Inverness.
Behind Thuture are three local names, as one of them, Mark Mackenzie, explained: "Thuture is a brand new venture from myself, Cisco Rodriguez (Alottarhythmman) and Khalid Hussain.
"It's a mid-week club night dedicated to playing the best rare grooves, disco and house, featuring quality DJs and live guests from around the country every Thursday at Mad Hatters.
"The idea is to have somewhere for the everyday music enthusiast to experience something new, but with an atmosphere anyone can come and enjoy - whether you're on a night out and want to dance or just want to chill and enjoy the music.
"We each have years of DJ experience acting as residents which more than often means we play a lot of warm up sets, and for us this can be the best part of the night. It's a chance to play something different, interact with individuals and get people moving without shoving heavy techno down their throats. We want to take these kind of vibes and make a night of it, and most importantly we want to make everyone feel welcome to join us.
"Already the announcement of the night has had a great response on social networks and we've been overwhelmed with the amount of people wanting to get involved.
"For us it's a sign that it's a well sought-after niche for the scene, so we're looking forward to getting stuck in about it!"
The club night will run every Thursday through July and August starting on Thursday (July 3) with the residents kicking things off.
Mark said: "Continuing from this there will be a number of special dates to announce in the near thuture... I mean future!"
The Residents' Launch Party will feature:
Mark Mackenzie (Pleasure / Concrete Music Records)
Alottarhythmman (Pleasure / Nocturnal)
Khalid Hussain (Tribe / Hectors House / Flare)
