This month, the fourth Hidden Depths event – a collaboration between Black Atlantic, Tiger Beer and FACT – will showcase Glasgow label Numbers.

Formed from the ashes of Dress 2 Sweat, Wireblock and Stuff, Numbers may be the youngest label profiled by Hidden Depths thus far (previous events featured Hyperdub, Ninja Tune and Hospital), but that hasn’t stopped it releasing a slew of great records, from contemporary fare like Mosca’s ‘Bax’, Jamie xx’s ‘Far Nearer’ and Deadboy’s ‘If U Want Me’ to explorations of the classic house and techno that originally inspired the team behind the label in their re-release of DJ Pierre’s ‘Mystery Girl’ and Lory D’s Strange Days series.

In keeping with the ideology of both Numbers and the Hidden Depths series, their showcase blends old and new: legendary Chicago house cat Lil Louis headlines, while Artwork, one third of dubstep powerhouse Magnetic Man and one of UK garage’s all-time favourite sons (D’n’D, Menta, etc), joins Numbers residents Jackmaster, Goodhand and Spencer in support. Spencer has released the following mix to promote the event – it’s “mainly old Chicago & Detroit stuff, with a few new tracks and some Lil’ Louis.”
