M&F’s version of ‘Move’ takes the original’s metallic percussive loop and reworks it as a funky dancefloor stomper. Phare’s version of ‘Take It’ ups the hypnotic swerving rhhythm with snatches of the original’s voices
The Newbridge, Kildare duo of Rob Smyth and Gary O’Reilly aka Mix & Fairbanks have been playing and making some of the best edits and remixes around of late and their latest free download EP, offers further proof of their abilities.
Foals’ Edwin Congreave are coming to Dublin for a DJ set at Opium Rooms on Paddy’s Day, March 17th courtesy of Bedlam and Abstract. The band’s Edwin Congreave will be in town to play a set. Congreave is one half of Deep Shit with Friendly Fires’ Jack Savidge. Check out two mixes – one disco mix from Edwin and a Deep Shit one from BBC6 a few years back.
Also lined up for the event are DJ sets from myself Nialler9 along with Ciara Brady, Marcus O’Laoire and Mix & Fairbanks. It’ll be an all-evening affair from 6pm.
Each mix in the Nialler9 Mix Series features feature a theme and will be put together by some of my favourite DJs local or international.
It wasn’t intentional but the first two artists in the Nialler9 Mix Series are from my hometown of Newbridge, Co. Kildare. Something in the water for sure. Following on from DJ Deece’s Warmup Mix, Newbridge disco edits DJs and producers Gary O’Reilly and Rob Smyth aka Mix & Fairbanks delivered a stonking mix and is all themed around the ’80s Drum machine – the Linndrum.
“After the death of Prince, Facebook was flooded with people sharing their favourite songs and memories. One article that stood out to us was about how Prince revolutionised the use of the LinnDrum, a drum machine from 1982. We chose the LinnDrum as the theme for this mix, and picked some of our favourite tracks where it features. Most of the songs have been edited or remixed, some more than others, although we tried to stay true to the originals.”
