Slam is Stuart McMillan and Orde Meikle. Synonymous with Glasgow's underground club scene and their sound-searching record label, Soma, the duo have garnered a reputation as international DJs, accomplished recording artists and respected collaborators. Their schedule regularly takes them to clubs worldwide confirming their status as one of a handful of artists that truly shape their genre.
