Nialler9 Mix Series: Gavin O’Sullivan’s New ’80s style mix


Each mix in the Nialler9 Mix Series features feature a theme and will be put together by some of my favourite DJs or musicians, local or international.

This edition, came to me through by inbox by sometime DJ and tune enthusiast Gavin O’Sullivan. I listened, thoroughly enjoyed and decided it needed a bigger audience so here we are.

“I have been djing for years, mainly in my bedroom/spare room, sometimes to crowds of upwards of 4 people!,” Gavin says. He mostly DJs as a hobby at home these days after a period of playing disco bars and tacky night clubs.

The 64-minute mix is themed on the ’80s sound: arpeggiated, thundering and squared synthesizer tones, electro big bass and 808s.

The mix features tracks from Le Galaxie, Simian Mobile Disco, Wolf + Lamb, Fischerspooner, Vicarious Bliss and Todd Terje.

“I started pulling the tracks together after digging out that Felix da Housecat album Kittenz & Thee Glitz and then just started jotting down similar tracks that I had.”

Gavin also runs a blog called Traffic Jams in which he reviews albums bought on the cheap in charity shops and online.
