After highlighting the significant clutch of Irish acts descending on Curraghmore, Co. Waterford for All Together Now Festival on the July Bank Holiday this year, it’s worth noting the great lineup of dance and electronic producers and DJs lined up for the grand return to the festival this summer.
From house to techno, to dance-pop to Caribbean rhythms to heady electronica, All Together Now has something for the heads and the festival first-timers.
Let’s press play.
The London DJ/producer has returned with a reinvigorated catalogue and a fresh thirst for DJing.
“I’ve been really enjoying DJing again,” Peter O’Grady aka Joy Orbison told Mixmag, recently and that bodes well for his upcoming set at All Together Now.
Last year’s Still Slipping Volume 1, his debut long-playing collection of music, ably moved the needle away from the artist being so synonymous with the 2009 post-dubstep classic ‘Hyph Mngo’.
In taking a mixtape with field recorded samples of his family and friends format, the album has a genuine familial intimacy to it, as if you are wandering the halls of the O’Grady residence, between the makings of these tracks which touch on dub techno, UK garage, and 2-step with guests vocals Herron, James Massiah, Bathe, Léa Sen, Goya Gumbani dropping in for a cup of tea and some colour.
Here’s a recent DJ mix from him too.
