Tycho – Live at District 8


Tycho will be at District 8 this Thursday and it will be a sell out gig!

Tycho is an American ambient music project led by Scott Hansen. His music is a combination of downtempo vintage-style synthesizers and ambient melodies. The style of his music sounds very organic, typically incorporating clips of the human element into his songs (e.g. weather broadcasts, simple talking, or even breathing). On December 6, 2016 Tycho’s fourth album, Epoch, received a nomination for Best Dance/Electronic Album in the 2017 Grammy Awards.

Run and get your tickets as they are selling out fast!

Fatima Yamaha – At District 8


District 8 will be receiving Fatima Yamaha for a second gig this Saturday,  due to big demand. So, if you missed him you can catch his gig this weekend.

Fatima Yamaha was shrouded in mystery, known only as a project led by “a young lady born to a Japanese father and a Turkish mother”. Now, after two fully sold out tours in the past two years, the mystery remains. In 2015, he collaborated with Dekmantel on a reworking of his hit “What’s A Girl To Do?” and in 2017 the next hit “Araya” arrived. Meanwhile, his live shows unfailingly live up to expectations, offering refined house complemented by virtuoso synths. Fatima Yamaha is now in the spotlights of the electronic music scene.

Check out Fatima Yamaha’s music here!

Objekt – At Pygmalion


On Saturday, the Berlin-based DJ and producer, Objekt, is coming to Pygmalion. Objekt has built up a reputation as not only a technically skilled but also regularly surprising and well-informed DJ. His sets, while broadly focused on techno, frequently duck and dive between the hypnotic and engrossing, incorporating off-kilter broken beats, breakneck electro, acid, noise, house, EBM and anything else necessary to illustrate his version of events, sometimes taking large jumps in tempo and drawing fully from the last 30 years of recorded electronic music.

Listen to Objekt’s set here!

A4 Sounds Presents Katsura Yamauchi +¡NO!


From Japan, minimalist experimental saxophonist and filmmaker Katsura Yamauchi makes a rare visit to Ireland to screen his new short films HaRuLi and HuuA, and to perform with eclectic improvisers ¡NO! His fluvial cinematic mediations will be followed by two musical sets: one featuring Yamauchi solo, and the other a collaborative improvised set with the local para-psych outfit.

The Zennish experimenter previously joined forces with the local iconoclasts in 2013 for a highly successful live collaboration at Twisted Pepper. Now, taking Yamauchi’s themes of the paradox of water’s constancy and its flux, the musicians will probe the interstices between instrumental expressions of flow and restraint, and the dual presence and timelessness of the moment. The performance features Yamauchi on saxophone, Fergus Cullen on keyboards, clarinet and guitar, Damien Lennon on bass, and Jamie Davis on drums/percussion.

Friday (20.10) – from 8:00 pm

Tickets: €12
