At HYPE this week... we welcome two of Dublins House & Techno originals -
Francois & Liam Dollard for a special night where the old meets the new...
From it's humble beginnings in UCD's student bar, UFO / Alien will be
remembered as one of Dublin's most consistent weekly Techno clubs, famously
taking place every Friday in Columbia Mills, Sir John Rogersons Quay.
Boasting a who's who of local House & Techno DJs each week, it gave many of
it's devoted clubbers their first taste of real clubbing. Before, during and
after it's closure in the mid nineties the clubs co-founder and resident -
Francois was a regular name at almost every Techno night in the city,
eventually settling into the Kitchen in the late nineties where he was a
regular guest / rotating resident DJ at the excellent Tuesday club - Genius.
He then took a break from it all, 'hanging up' his headphones circa
2000[ish]... He comes out of retirement for another one of his rare
appearances this Friday at HYPE. Expect new / upfront Techno alongside
classic UFO / Alien tuneage.
Also on the bill and no stranger to Dublin clubland is UFO / Alien regular -
Liam Dollard. Another Dublin DJ who's name was a constant on Irish flyers
back then. These days Liam is enjoying a return to DJing and has proven with
recent sets at Kennedys / The Underground & Dame Lane that he is still a
great DJ... Expect new House music with an ever so slight nostalgic nod to
the past. Dolly on the phone...
Getting things started are Mike Mooney from Melodica & Jay Riordan who
represents Nice & Nasty's sister label - Dublin X-press Recordings. More
