"Sprightly analogue electronica from Longford.
I’m really liking this new track from Longford producer Imploded View. ‘Withering Lights’ has a hypnotic groove that reminds me of the work of Fort Romeau. Jerome McCormick plays Phase One Festival in Carrick-on-Shannon on Sunday. I’ll be DJing there too." - Nialler9 (2014)
"This album works great as an aural teleportation device to transport you to a better place when life is a bit rubbish. ‘Anomaly Domine’ is a welcome addition to the ever-expanding field of Irish abstract electronic music." - Golden Plec (2013)
8.40pm - 9.10pm Twisted Pepper
Benihana are an electronic duo based in Kildare Ireland
Golden Plec "Based in Kildare, Benihana, comprising the duo Will Molloy and Billy Archbold, have unleashed the ‘Patterns’ EP, an ambient triumph of synth and substance which offers a lesson in how electronic music should be delivered.".
The Thin Air "Having released a couple of tracks throughout the year, the pair’s five-track release veers between understated techno and synth-driven electronic pop, serving as a brief but brilliant introduction to a duo likely to concoct great things over the next while."
Soundblob "Benihana’s EP Patterns, rather than relying on patterns, is centrally focused on textures. These are rich reverb-heavy textures soaked in emotion.This is our first proper listen to Benihana, and has immediately made them an act to watch coming into 2014"
9.20pm - 9.50pm Twisted Pepper
SLEEP MCEVOX began as a classically-trained multi-instrumentalist, who later made a leap of faith onto the dancefloor. To make up for lost time, he is in a hurry to share his vital, visceral, textured and noise-laden vision with anyone who has two ears.
In October 2013, the single "Monolith" and debut EP were released on the much-hailed Italian label Bad Panda Records to wide acclaim. The EP was both a progression and a departure from his previous work with Datadrip and under his real name Steve McEvoy, adventuring into a bleak and crystalline world, being driven forward by propulsive techno rhythms and punctuated by ferocious and blissful slabs of noisy devastation.
"Sleep McEvox’s new EP hears the Dublin producer veer wildly into bleak and blasted territory where the tunes are filthy, frantic and frankly, brilliant." - HARMLESS NOISE
10pm - 10.30pm Twisted Pepper
Kobina is Dublin based producer Sean Arthur.
