DUTCH techno giant Steve Rachmad, heads to The Caves for this month’s edition of Jackhammer.
For the past 25 years Rachmad has made his mark, remixing almost anyone worth their weight in quality vinyl.
His own productions were originally reserved for the collector, with rare vinyl runs followed by re-issues years later.
Nevertheless, he is one DJ who commands respect for taking clubbers on a musical journey filled with peaks and troughs.
The Caves, Niddry Street South, tomorrow, 10.30pm–3am, £10, www.thecavesedinburgh.com
