Two of Northern Ireland's finest descend on the west for the opening of Faint's autumn season. This one will be a roadblock.
Greetings...To open this season at Faint, we are bringing founder of the Deep Sea Frequency DJ label and producer Or:la with Belfast's Cromby on support.
Faint Sligo DJs in the Basement (This area will now be a home of the heavier Techno, Acid Techno, Breaks Jungle)
Or:la's story has followed a different trajectory to most. After moving to Liverpool in 2012 from a small town in Northern Ireland, a fascination of collecting old electronic records soon side tracked her media production degree and paved the way for what was to come.
A vast knowledge of various genres and tempos is what separates Or:la from many other young DJ's at the moment. Or:la’s sound channels a nostalgic broken beat vibe, spanning chuggy acid numbers to skippy percussive sounds and more techno-leaning four to the floor.
Or:la's growing success as a dynamic producer and genre-spanning selector has, in 2017 alone seen her gain a residency at the Warehouse Project in Manchester, a bimonthly show on NTS Radio and win DJ Mag's 'Breakthrough DJ of the year'.
