The National Gallery of Ireland has undergone an extensive renovation over the last six years as outlined in the Irish Times, and can be seen via Totally Dublin and The Thin Air and the video below.
The first major exhibition to take place in the gallery is an exhibition of the Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer entitled Vermeer and the Masters of Genre Painting: Inspiration and Rivalry and opens Saturday.
I’m DJing at the launch tomorrow of the exhibition in the Gallery and the organisers asked me in the spirit of inspiration to reflect in a playlist and the music played some modern Dutch artists. So here’s a playlist of my favourite Dutch music of an electronic persuasion including Fatima Yamaha, Tom Trago, Young Marco, Kraak & Smaak, David Douglas, Palmbomen, Martyn, Weval, Steffi, Doctr, Laserdance, Legowelt and brand new selections Parc, CUT_ and Klangstof.
For advance ticket booking for the upcoming exhibition, Vermeer and the Masters of Genre Painting: Inspiration and Rivalry at The National Gallery of Ireland, go to Nationalgallery.ie. Entry to the permanent collection is free.

Lovely new promo mix by Martyn for Fabric after the jump with tracks from Om Unit, Gil Scott Heron, Levon Vincent, DJ Killer, Renaissance Man and Martyn’s own tunes. Before you get to the mix itself though, here’s a killer AFX-esque remix from the man of Efdemin’s ‘Acid Bells’ from last year.
