Tenth Planet presents the return of NYC techno innovator Joey Beltram. We brought Joey over at the beginning of Tenth Planet and weâ€™re proud to present the return of a legend of our scene! Joey has promised a very special set on the night and to throw in some classic techno for good measure. Joey will be joined on the night by a home-grown legend Giles Armstrong. Weâ€™re very happy to finally have Giles down to play for our little night and show us how itâ€™s done. Through his legendary Electric City night and beyond Giles has been lucky enough to have played with many artists down through the years but this is the first time that Joey and Giles will share a line up in what is sure to be a great night. This is the perfect way to start off your Paddyâ€™s weekend in style. This is a very intimate gig for Joey and weâ€™ll be selling limited early birds for only â‚¬10 +bf and presales for â‚¬15+bf. Tickets on the night will be â‚¬15. We recommend early bird tickets for this one!
JOEY BELTRAM[ Stx Tresor Drumcode R&S - New York]
Best known for 'Energy Flash' and 'Mentasm' among others, Beltram is heralded as one of the scene's biggest techno and house stars. Beltram grew up in Queens, New York. At 12 years old he was DJing hip hop and electro, playing roller rinks and block parties to buy records, studio gear and decks. He released his first tracks before age 18 on New York labels Nu Groove and Easy Street, and by 20 he caught the ear of Belgium's now pivotal R&S label with his track Let It Ride. R&S invited Beltram to Europe and techno history was made. Beltram arrived with a new track he'd completed a week before travelling. Energy Flash, released on R&S in Europe and Derrick May's Transmat in the US, is still one of techno's pivotal classics - Muzik Magazine's Track of the Decade, and a track whose title has named any number of record stores and books on dance culture. Energy Flash and its follow up Mentasm with Mundo Muzique made Beltram's name and took the 20-year-old right around the world, playing major events in the UK, Netherlands, Belgium, Italy and Germany and holding down a residency at the notorious Limelight in New York. Not content to rest, Beltram has continually toured at the major festivals around the globe treating the crowds to the full force of his inspiring sets.
Heâ€™s also continued releasing seminal tracks, his '93 and '94 tracks Aonox on Visible and "the Beltram re-releases" on Trax, the Caliber EP on the UK's legendary Warp (home of Aphex Twin and Squarepusher), and his '95 LP Places and '96 single Ball Park on Tresor were huge hits - each being one of the biggest techno records of that year, along with the LP following, Close Grind on Novamute, with the pivotal releases Believer and Forklift. In '99, he launched his own label STX with Arena, while he continued to release under Code 6 and JBÂ³, as well as headlining events like Awakenings, Coachella, Nature One, Mayday and Dance Valley.
Returning to Tresor in '04, his album Rising Sun included several of that year's biggest techno releases. And he has kept the innovative tracks coming since on Womb, Harthouse, Drumcode, MB Electroniks and Bush.
GILES ARMSTRONG [Electric City]
Assuming something of a Don Corleone presence on Dublinâ€™s techno scene from the beginning of this decade, Giles progressed from filling his weekly radio show on Power FM with the cream of homegrown and international names, to soon creating a club equivalent through â€˜Electric Cityâ€™ â€“ one of the few groundbreaking Irish club nights of recent years. Gilesâ€™ stellar selections and smooth set building abilities have established him as one of the countryâ€™s most relevant DJs, with his services being in constant demand. Whether heâ€™s playing â€˜super clubsâ€™ like Shine or Tripod, festivals like Electric Picnic, performing basement warfare at Twisted Pepper or spinning at weddings in Leixlip, Giles is always a man for the occasion.
