Producer, remixer, award-winning scratch deejay, messer, and all-round talented fecker…. DJ MEK has been bangin’ out the quality since the late 80s. Mek is probably best known for being “the cat behind the decks” in legendary Irish hip-hip band Scary Eire, and for winning a ridiculous amount of awards for his turntable skills. In recent years Mek has played some unreal live sets and put out some fantastic mixes (check the links below), so we are verrrry excited about this one.
Aka, Djackulate and Moschops, aka, Paddy and the Heart Brake Kidd, Neil Bucannon uses a patented hardware and wax “audio fun system”, consisting of 4 turntables, 1 cdj, MPC1000, SP404, Korg KP3, Pioneer EFX500, Loop pedal, Rane mixers and unwanted records Neil takes bits of everything to create an audio Art Attack without PVA glue.
NEIL BUCANNON audio can be found on both these soundcloud pages:
Deviant makes skratch music. Unadulterated by synthesizers, untouched by guitars, not a delay pedal in sight. Records and hands. Turntable and mixer. Loop pedal and multitracker. A familiar presence on the Irish live circuit, Deviant has been musically active since 2001, promoting the Rootdown and GC Underground nights (with international hip-hop luminaries Edan, The P Brothers, DJ Noize and Supernatural), as part of four piece turntable band Vince Mack Mahon (with Jimmy Penguin, Mikey Fingers and Tweek) and as a founding member of Community Skratch, a non-profit collective dedicated to promoting the arts of turntable manipulation and sample culture. His recent live-sets have been mind-blowing, and his mixes, remixes, and original releases have been unreal. Have a listen for yourself…
Imploded View aka Jerome McCormick is Longford based beat-maker whose forte is experimental electronic music. Using a whole manner of retro synths and 1/4 inch Reel-to-Reel tape machine he creates extremely chilled ambient sounds. This is a rare opportunity to see him perform before the release of his debut LP later this year.
