Quinton Campbell is one of the more interesting and talented dancefloor producers to have emerged from the Dublin scene of late.
For me, it began with
‘FM Patterns’, a nine-minute bleeping synth track that set him part from the pack and ended up on my Irish songs of the year list.
A winner of 2016’s AVA Emerging Producer Award, Campbell has made two edits for his DJ sets that he’s sharing here. The first is a beefier version of Nils Frahm’s
‘Say’ which kicks and builds in a way the original does not. Secondly, there’s his take on the percussive sensual house track by Entro Senestre ‘Rosegold’.
Get them both below.
Next up for Campbell is
Antics 2nd Birthday in Maynooth this weekend and then Kahuna in Louth.

Ahead of their
biggest Dublin show yet tomorrow night in Vicar Street (with support from Bitch Falcon), Overhead, The Albatross have shared a new track to mark the occasion, the first song written since the album Learning To Growl was released earlier this year.
‘Our Youth Our Younger’ features kids talking about the universe, God (or Santa), and builds instrumentally with digital beats, gentle keyboard notes, before a mangled Boards Of Canada-style sample gives way to a tough rhythm. As with any OTA song, there is orchestral swells and moments of beauty. Violin and vocals by Lia Wright and bass by Twiggy.
Buy tickets for the show.
Here’s a lovely remix of their track by Dublin’s Quinton Campbell
