AN ARDROSSAN DJ set to play at the latest event in the Metro nightclub says he is "buzzing" to be playing the "iconic" venue.

Jack McCrindle - who plays under the stage name JM - will be playing a set at the club alongside fellow local talent Niamh Temporal on Friday, February 22.

The pair will form the 'next generation' part of the evening who will close the event playing the final two sets of the night.

Beforehand, two icons of the Saltcoats nightclub will make their return playing some classic 'Old Skool tunes'.

Coming back to the club for the first time since it re-opened last weekend will be former resident DJs Sinki (Anthony Sinclair) and the much-loved Joe Deacon.

Ahead of the event, 23-year-old Jack spoke of his excitement to play at "Scotland's most famous nightclub".

After leaving school aged 15, JM started producing music and studied sound production at college.

He went on to work at the college's student association for a couple of years while continuing to master his passion before stepping out to make a name for himself.

He created the JM brand, secured a residency, and began making connections which led to a three month spell playing alongside artist Lugzy in Magaluf.

Jack has since returned home, playing a number of large Scottish events before stepping in to arrange this event at the Metro, which has been revamped by Steven Miller and Gary Burns.

He told the Herald: "I’m absolutely buzzing to be able to play a set in the Metro.

"Steven and Gary invited me along to see the place in 2020 and it’s amazing to see what they’ve done with it. An amazing sound system with a brilliant lighting set up, all we could really ask for!

"I like the set up of the night, with ‘old school’ music being played to open the night, with Sinki’s and Joe’s music being more euphoric, it will be great for building the energy in the place.

"Niamh and I will then be keeping the energy going playing some of newest sounds getting produced in the dance scene at the moment."

Jack added his delight at being able to share the stage with some icons of the nightclub when he makes his own debut at the venue.

He added: "It was amazing that we managed to get Joe Deacon on the line-up.

"He was one of the main people that brought the energy to the Metro back in the 90’s and I’m honoured that I’m playing on the night of his return."

The Ardrossan DJ added his delight at being able to play to such a wide audience and introduce them to new sounds.

Jack continued: "It’ll be a good opportunity for some of the ravers my age to experience music that they’ve not heard in a night out before with Joe and Sinki bring the old school sounds.

"It will also give the more experienced ravers a chance to see the new sounds that are coming out with Niamh's and my set.

"I expect the night to be packed full of energy, giving different generations a chance to come together and experience the Metro as one!

"Personally I’ve spent a lot of time practicing my set, packing as much tunes in as possible and I know the other acts will be doing the same."

While it is Jack's first event at the venue, he certainly doesn't expect it to be the last.

He added: "I know it won’t be the only event I’m running in the Metro although I haven’t had too much thought past this event. I've just been buzzing to have a night so close to the reopening of the iconic venue.

"Although after this weekend's by, I’m sure me, Gary and Steven will get back to the drawing board to plan another action packed night."
