I was absolutely thrilled with bringing ‘BarryGruff Presents’ to Dublin for the first time last Friday, in The Workman’s Club.
I am equally thrilled to be involved in another Dublin show; ‘BRAINMELT!’ in King 7, Capel St., Dublin 1. It’s a three-way split between !Kaboogie, PosterFish & BarryGruff and the line-up of DJ MEK, Neil Bucannon, Deviant & Imploded View speaks for itself. This is going to be a blinder of a night, no doubt about it!
It’s all happening this Saturday, June 16th in King 7, Capel St., Dublin 1. Admission: €5 before 11pm / €10 after. The Facebook event page is here and there’s more details on the acts below. I hope to see some of you there.
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. 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.
Deviant makes skratch music. Unadulterated by synthesizers, untouched by guitars, not a delay pedal in sight. Just records, hands, turntables, mixer, loop pedal and multitracker. 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.
