Subject will mark its six birthday from June 1st through to the 3rd.
The night has been taking place at various venues in Dublin usually bi-weekly. Most recently they've found themselves a home at The Twisted Pepper. The promoter's agenda is simply stated: "Disco.House.Techno." Over the years they've had guests from all over that spectrum, including Marcel Dettmann, Kerri Chandler and Neil Landstrumm.
Their birthday will take up a whole weekend (plus a Monday), starting on June 1st at The Twisted Pepper with Berlin-based hardware fetishists Analogue Cops, who will perform live (and who were the focus of a Label Of The Month feature back in 2011). Dublin's DJ Kormac will support with an audiovisual set.
The next night at the same venue, Chicago veteran Green Velvet—also known for his classic hits under the Cajmere moniker—will headline, along with locals Mr. Rossworth and Joe Morrissey. The party will continue into Monday morning with an afterhours that starts at 7:00 AM, this time at the Dark Horse Inn. Panorama Bar resident Tama Sumo is billed for that one, with other lineup details still under wraps.
Tickets for the two Twisted Pepper parties are available on Subject's promoter page.

Solar Bears will release their second album, Supermigration, in April through Planet Mu.2 Comments
John Kowalski and Rian Trench debuted on Mike Paradinas's label in 2010, releasing an EP (Inner Sunshine) and album (She Was Coloured In) which fully showcased a richly textured sonic approach that tapped into the spirit of 1970s psychedelia, kosmische and prog. While their debut album was crafted in a bedroom studio, Supermigration was created over a year and a half in a state-of-the-art complex in the Wicklow Mountains in Ireland.
The album features two guest vocaliists, with Sarah P of Keep Shelly In Athens and former Air collaborator Beth Hirsch appearing on "Alpha People" and "Our Future Is Underground" respectively. For an idea of what to expect from the LP, you can watch a brief video teaser below.
