Belfast Music Club DJ's
Belfast Music Club
Summer has arrived (don't look outside mind), and we're pleased to announce the first of our summer line-ups. Joining the BMC residents on Friday 29th June will be none other than Daniel Martin-McCormick aka Ital. Daniel will be performing a live set as well as jumping behind the turntables for a dj slot on the night, and if his appearance at Go Bang! last year is anything to go by we are in for a treat.
Admission is just £6 before 11, with doors opening at 9pm as usual.
And here's a short bio on the man himself:
Heading a new wave of irreverent dance producers, Ital chops and skews classic house/techno through a liberating and unique post-noise soundworld. This is heady and tactile dance music in which feel and texture are valued over fidelity or uber-quantised beat grids... sensual, epic and amorphous these tracks are a RUSH.
His debut album on Planet Mu Hive Mind drew praise from all quarters and follows a run of 12”s on 100% SILK and his own Lover's Rock imprint (featuring a killer remix from kindred spirit Hieroglyphic Being), as well as carrying out production duties for LA Vampires on Not Not Fun.
As one half of Thrill Jockey signed duo Mi Ami, he knows how to cut loose live. Synth, drum machine and sequencer lay down the framework for his tracks, with an array of fx pedals used to warp his sounds/samples, and euphoric, smudged keyboards floating high above.

“Five futuristic club jams that bring to mind everyone from Marcus Mixx to Jamal Moss via the neon output of Night Slugs... refreshing, inspiring, and quite possibly my favourite dance record of the moment” - Electronic Beats
“Five deliciously strung-out club tracks are as original as they come, stewing up house's 4/4 kickdrum with muddy synths and diced-up diva vocals... Awash with memories of dancefloor bliss” - NME
“Hive Mind subverts the expectations and structures of house music... as messy and thoughtful a take on house as we're likely to hear this year.” - Pitchfork
“some of the most vital-sounding house music around... nothing could have prepared us for 'Culture Clubs’, a sunblind epic of rough percussion, luscious chords and elements that work against each other as effectively as they work with each other” – Fact Magazine
