Wow, all you clever cats just never cease to amaze us – last month’s gig was off the chain! It was the biggest, busiest, most epically fun night out that we’ve had this year… and we wanna rinse and repeat, so block out all of next weekend yo!

This seventh episode we have Nila, Smiles Davis and of course Clever Box (live) rocking the booth, so come join us for more fantastic music, dancefloor shimmies and some serious shenanigans. We are also super excited to have Tim Costar sliding on in for some tambourine action, welcome.

It's just the usual sly tenner on the door & everybody in before midnight goes into the draw to win one of five $20 bar tabs, thank you Ink Bar!


Nila is a Scottish DJ and producer currently living in Auckland. His passion for dance music started way back in 1992, in his hometown of Edinburgh and after hearing the likes of Dave Angel, Sasha, Carl Cox and Jeff Mills, his obsession rapidly morphed into a way of life.

At the tender age of 16, he began buying records and following labels such as Harthouse, Djax and R&S Records, then after several years honing his craft DJing at numerous house parties, Nila secured his first club spot as the main act. He then went on to play at all the best clubs around Scotland to critical acclaim with a career highlight being invited to create several guest mixes for ‘Beat 106’, Scotland’s premiere dance radio station of the time.

After an extended hiatus from playing, Nila could stand it no more and returned to his musical roots, demonstrating what he’s famous for; his superb technical ability and for delivering his own unique style of sexy, progressive and tech-tinged house.

Since 2014, Nila has been invited to guest on many radio stations including: Frisky Radio, Circle - Ibiza Radio 1, Groundworx Session FM (UK), George FM, DNA Radio FM, Innervisions Radio and Late Night Grooves Radio.

Nila has also been releasing his own music on a number of labels such as: Pro-B-Tech Records, IconYC, Keep Thinking, Hydrogen, Wulfpack, Deep And Under, Unrivalled Music, For The Record and Plethora Muzik (to name just a few)!

Having recently been signed to renowned agency Probtech Global DJ & Artist Management, Nila is just now hitting his stride, so watch this space, because you’ll certainly be hearing a lot more from him in the very near future!

Smiles Davis says that music makes him smile. He likes playing music that makes you smile too.

Clever Box consists of Marcus Morgan & Rachael Sabin, who came together as musical soulmates a couple of years ago. They were delighted to find their individual styles melding together to form a sexualised melodrama of electronic soul, set against a backdrop of warm, lush deepness, caressing and flirting with many flavours of house and techno.

Drawing on over 40 combined years of DJing, performance, vocal work and music production, Morgan & Sabin have now created a sensuous live house act, that pulses with lyrical magic and never fails to deliver.
