Clubs: Dance legends poised to put clubbers in a spin

Bjarki Bunatee bar, QUBSU, Belfast Tonight 9pm

Andrea McVeigh

When you think about techno heartlands, Iceland isn't the first country that springs to mind. But the dramatic landscape of this Nordic island provided the inspiration for Bjarki to start dabbling in computer-generated beats at the tender age of just 12. Currently living in Copenhagen, he's still riding high on the success of last year's EP, the whimsically-titled Arthur and Intergalactic Whales. Tonight he'll be performing a live album showcase of his latest tracks.

Plaid

Black Box, Belfast

Tonight 8pm

Electronic legends Plaid return to Belfast to promote their most recent album, The Digging Remedy. With support from local electronic musician Boxcutter, this promises to be a very special gig, with Plaid performing behind a partial screen made up from 40 triangles, while the duo - Ed Handley and Andy Turner - make full use of new software to project images and video clips onto each triangle in time to the music.

Sasha

Lush, Portrush

Tomorrow 9pm

One of the most famous DJs to emerge from the UK dance music scene, Sasha is no stranger to these shores. So it will be something of a homecoming for the Welsh wonder, once voted the No 1 DJ in the world by the highly-respected DJ Magazine. There's also a first-rate line-up in the supporting slots, including Lush veteran Col Hamilton and Belfast-born mixer Ejeca.
