Dreams of Electric Bleep
"Dubliners have the chance to experience a slice of Irish electronic music history with an event celebrating the early Irish electro movement at Racket. Emerging from the ashes of Ireland's early rave era - that had been absorbed into the vastly more commercialised club scene of the late '90s - was an oft forgotten, but exceptionally fertile period for electronic music in Ireland. Spearheaded by the then Dublin duo of Decal (later becoming the solo project of Alan O' Boyle), nurtured through nights like Phunk City at The Funnel, Model One at Switch and at a later point midweek club haunt Electric City, an unlikely Irish electro movement was born; breeding an abundance of new labels, parties and producers hungry to make their mark. Dreams of Electric Bleep revisits a crucial time of development (1999-2005), when production standards on the island of Ireland rose in perfect synchronicity with the collapse of the music industry as we knew it. The line-up for the night features Phil Kieran, Decal, Magnetize, John Braine, and Eliza. Get ready to dance, connect, and create lasting memories at this event honouring Irish electronic music and club culture.
Supported by Culture Night Dublin to coincide with the double vinyl release on Sunil Sharpe’s Earwiggle, featuring key tracks from Decal, Magnetize, Metroneem, Americhord, Phil Kieran, Takeover Sound, Chymera and John Braine, which will be available at the launch (attendees have ticket option on Eventbrite to purchase in advance, to collect on the night).
Doors at 9pm. Booking information to follow."
