farewell sweet prince

a sad day has come. our friend and hero quigo is leaving us for the sunnier climes of new zealand. but we have him for one more night at transmission, and that is tonight. so come down and see dublin’s most fun dj for the last time.

this year anyway!

new stuff from me

i’ve been busy with music new and old lately, and i’ve put a few mixes together. the most recent was for sidetracked, that ever-so-groovy friday night dealio in the chocolate bar in dublin. it’s a game of two halves, as i start off with some more groovy stuff like holmes price‘s unbelievably good cover of the juan maclean‘s human disaster and the classic shep pettibone remix of new order’s true faith. then it goes a bit garagey, with some mj cole and todd edwards, before a deep and slightly irreverent finale thanks to carl craig, and his relentless desire for chicken noodle soup. i’ll be playing sidetracked from 2 next friday, so come along and wave/say hi/boogie.

sidetracked bank holiday EXTRAVAGANZA

yupp, i used the e word. it’s a big deal. sidetracked has been running things between 8 and 11 on a friday since the beginning of the year, nicely leading into trainwreck, but tonight it’s sidetracked all night long. jamie clarke, frank sweeney, colin perkins, jevan neilan, quigo, kevin aiken, sophie de vere, jeff courtney flynn, shane morrisey, sarah mckenna, james o’donohue, just daire and myself. expect some of this.

Aurra – Baby Love (VDRK Special Disco Edit) by VDRK

still recovering

well transmission on saturday was nuts. even though it was just us residents, the place was packed. like at krash, i tried to play as many tracks as possible that i hadn’t played before – though mr blood made an appearance yet again – it’s just too good of a tune to let go! seriously though, as a clubber i know i get bored hearing more than a few tracks over and over, so i guess as a dj it’s my job to keep it interesting…

quigo and myself going back to back was a lot of fun too – not entirely certain of everything he played but it was something like this…

Major Lazer – Keep It Going Louder (Diplo Remix)
Gramaphonedzie – Why Don’t You (Greenmoney Remix)
Felix Da Housecat – Kickdrum (Arveene & Misk Remix)

???

10CC – I’m Not In Love

unfortunately we had to cut the last track short. think we even finished before the lights went on! crazy times. definitely want to do more back to back sets – really poses a challenge i think, and gives you a chance to have fun trying to get inside someone’s head.

what i’m really excited about is this: interview coming soon!

krashed out

still no internet at home – blogging at work. yeesh. last night at krash was a lot of fun, as usual. someone spotted that panda bear remix – what a dude. i was happy that a few people asked “what’s this track?!” while i was playing schizofonics. tellin’ ya, they’re headed for great things.

next on the list is transmission tomorrow night – it’ll be a special one, as quigo and i are going b2b for the last 45 minutes or so. we’re thinking lots of energy and lots of tunes that’ll put a smile on your face.

sorry, got sidetracked there

last thursday i did something i’ve never done before – played two gigs in one night. the first was a low-key affair, playing breezy disco at just daire‘s sidetracked night in the newly refurbished chocolate bar. it’s a lovely spot, and it’s a great place to play some funkier stuff. daire played some great disco like still going theme, and the siriusmo remix of shooting star. another first was that myself and quigo went back to back – something we first talked about as far back as june or july 2008. we should hopefully be doing that again some time.

after side tracked it was down to krash in wax, my first time playing downstairs after several spots upstairs in spy. being a three-roomed affair, naturally the crowd ebbed and flowed, but i was pretty happy with how the set went. also props to colin perkins not least for having me down, but also for looping and filtering and all sorts of ish on top of what i was playing.
