Two Montrose DJs - Rossco and Moono - will join International superstar DJs at a dance music extravaganza in Strathclyde Park.

The event, Size in the Park is an all-day 6,000 capacity event headlined by International Superstar Steve Angello of Swedish House Mafia, on Friday, August 23.

Both Rossco and Moono are former pupils of Montrose Academy. Rossco is Ross Archbold (30), who works as HSE Consultant at Biarchi Safety.

Moono is Mike Edwards (32), who is self-employed and works offshore,

The lads will be entertaining by playing Tech House Building to Progressive House in their usual way in a Back to Back format, working off each other, to ensure the crowd gets as much from their set as they do.

They told the Review: “We’ve been DJ-ing between us for 34 years, starting in the bedroom practicing patiently and relentlessly with our weekly dance music vinyl purchases on Moono’s very basic soundlab turntables, then finally to our first gigs at the Star Hotel in Montrose.

“We used to play every venue in our area to get as much experience as we could. Things just got better and better and we started our very own dance music clubnight called DD10 in Montrose. We then started hosting and warming up for the likes of Utah Saints, Fergie, Lottie, Dave Pearce and Rui Da Silva just to name a few! We were also asked to play alongside big names such as Alex M.O.R.R.P.H. in the tunnels in Aberdeen, Koen Groenveld in the reading rooms and Dundee dance events.”

“In recent months we have had an influx of bookings which has seen us playing the decks all over Scotland, with a lot of the best gigs coming up soon. Our gig diary keeps on growing with lots of bookings in Dundee supporting big DJs, including Mashed up nights hosting Radio 1’s Danny Howard, also Static Presents Radio 1’s Jordan Suckley, then on to Lovejuice Digitals Masquerade Toga Party in Mains Castle.”

The rest of Rossco and Moono’s time is taken up with family. They both have two young children whom they love spending time with.

Size in the Park runs between and 10.30 p.m., with tickets priced £34.50. They can be purchased through Rossco, telephone 07873 637466.
