We speak to Stuart McMillan – one half of Glasgow techno mainstays Slam – about the duo's new experimental album, Athenæum 10. Why have you chosen that particular tempo for the new album, which explores "left field electronica, ambient, dub and experimental" over 61 continuous minutes? Stuart McMillan: Orde and I had both spoken about doing an album at that tempo for a few years now. There is no specific reason why it should have been that tempo per se, other than that we are both huge fans of dub reggae and I liked the idea of fusing a Jamaican dub ethos with electronic music, mainly because of the space that tempo allows within the sounds and textures.
