Kölsch Album Tour – At District 8


Kölsch is coming to District 8 this Thursday! Well known for his productions Rune Reilly Kölsch has sold millions of records all over the world under his many different monikers and production work.

The DJ returns to Kompakt records to release the third and final release in his autobiographical album trilogy. With these releases he took his techno craftsmanship to new levels, setting it on a melodic and even emotive course – without losing any of its punch and quirkiness. This trilogy of albums which started with an exploration of early childhood memories and influences on “1977”- the year of his birth – and continued on “1983”, a vibrant and picturesque journey sound tracking the year he traveled through Europe at the age of six.

Michael Mayer (5 hour set) – At Pygmalion


Michael Mayer returns to Dublin and this time he is bringing his 5 hour set to Pygmalion. As a DJ Mayer is known for weaving together long and story telling sets of house and techno from across the ages, he is also a super producer and remixer with an enviable and often referenced back catalogue. As an integral part in the way that techno has developed in recent years, it’s safe to say he loves being challenged and regardless of the pressure he never puts less than 100% of his heart and soul into everything he does.

Blonde – At Opium


The electronic duo from Bristol made up of Jake and Adam, Blonde, will be playing  their DJ Set at Opium this Friday. Similar to Rudimental, Disclosure and London Grammar, Blonde have used specialist sub-genres as the starting blocks from which to make huge zeitgeist-defining pop records – in the process, providing compelling evidence that pop is no longer the dirty word that it once was.

As Blonde gathered pace, their music evolved in all directions – a little house, elements of R&B, an occasional garage influence and a whole lot more.

Listen to Blonde’s music here!
