New Release

Primitive World and Yør return to Obsession Recordings, this time for a split E.P. from the pair. The brainchild of  Matt Didemus (aka half of Canadian duo Junior Boys), the label is only on it’s second release but is definitely showing promise. Primitive World‘s ‘Purple Caps’ opens proceedings, with filtered loops oscillating around percussive bursts and distorted basslines. ’Tides Of Lust” ‘s protean techno ups the urgency with the phantom punch of its caustic toms, skittering percussion and low-res tones that ride the steady pulse of the 808 subs. ‘Rites Of Passage Pts. 1 & 2′ see Yør delivering steady rhythms and throbbing bass with  Pt1. vibrating with intensity and capped off by

What Next: The Pav Closes

Irish
14 (2) Tags : , ,

You read correctly - The Pav has closed in Cork! With a number of venues closed in the last month alone we were especially disappointed to see this happen. It was a fine example of dedication to the thriving and talented music scene but also an unfortunate example of the struggles Irish businesses deal with on a daily basis. With not a lot of alternative options it’s important we remember and support the venues that put quality first. Let the Pav be our inspiration!  Having given a home to all sorts of genres its unique space was enjoyed by many as a place to kick back and let go while listening

bualadh Tags : , , , , , ,

If  there’s one thing Berlin is known for, it’s a very thriving electronic music scene and now, thanks to some Irish expats, there is  a new night to add to the mix in the shape of Bualadh. Named after the Irish word for ”Beat” or ”Rattle”, it features a host of some of our favourite Irish DJ’s including Niki, Ruan and Púca who have all contributed wicked mixes for us in the past. Given the line up, it promises to be a night of, as the poster says -”TECHNO.NOISE.KITCHEN SYNC” and if you happen to be in Berlin this Friday, it’s definitely worth checking out. Big respect to all involved with putting

Mondays can be hard – the weekend is over and you’re trying to get back into the groove. I sympathise completely, but help is at hand – one thing that is helping me through it is the brand new mix from Mustard Gunn. Head honcho at Coin Operated Records, his sets and mixes are always straight to the point bass driven business. His latest concoction, Nae Butter, is no different and sees him storm through 24 tunes in under one hour. Featuring tracks from the likes of 3d!t, Spaceface, Boom Boom Distortion and Otto Von Schirach, there’s no let up- which is the way we like it. Happy Monday!!

Gigs New Release
Rob-Clouth Tags : , , , , , ,

Having already put out releases on Tigerbeat and King Deluxe as Vaethx – Rob Clouth is back and releasing under his official title (to the taxman anyway).  Having interviewed Rob as Vaethx back in 2011, we always knew he was destined for great things, especially when we brought him to Cork for his one and only Irish show the same year (which he absolutely killed by the way). His latest E.P. Clockwork Atom is out on the 28 April on Berlin based record label, Berghain residency, and nomadic party-starters Leisure System and sees him up the level of glitch  once again turn your brain inside out. It’s too easy to talk
