Interview: Junior Boys

Don’t call it a comeback. Because it isn’t really. That said, the critical response to Junior Boys’ third album, 2009’s Begone Dull Care was markedly less enthusiastic than that of their debut and sophomore efforts. June’s It’s All True saw songwriter and producer Jeremy Greenspan mulling over his place in read more…

Lunice

Lunice’s first gig in Ireland at the Twisted Pepper was the right in the middle of a tour that would wear out even the most seasoned producers. Kicking off his European tour in Fabric, the 23 year old Canadian had his laptop stolen from the London club’s greenroom, losing both read more…

 

Interview: Luke Vibert

With his first release dating back to 1993, Luke Vibert is undoubtedly a member of the old-guard of British electronic music. With Roland synths as his muse, the man also known as Kerrier District, Wagon Christ, and Plug (just to name a few) has been churning out disco, drum n’ read more…

Interview: Jimmy Edgar

Two minutes and thirty-six seconds into our very first conversation, and Jimmy Edgar’s talking about his sex life. I kind of am too.

Lunar Disko

Very much from the D.I.Y school of thought, Andy Doyle and Barry Donovan are the co-founders of Dublin’s Lunar Disko records. Spawned from an Italo/ Electro / Chicago night, they started the label from the ground up, and two years on, they’ve released a string of records making waves far read more…

Legowelt

With 20 pseudonyms and counting, Danny Wolfers is impossibly hard to pigeonhole. Born and raised in The Hague, the man most commonly known as Legowelt is steeped in the electronic traditions of Detroit and Chicago; a passion propped up by his fiendish synthesizer habit. In an era when staring at read more…

Motor City Drum Ensemble

We’ve lost count of the amount of times we’ve heard people whinging about Irish closing times, or the lack of good night clubs, or any one of several other gripes about how shit this city is to go out in. One man who opposes this moaning is Danilo Plessow aka read more…

Interview: Discotekken

Customer loyalty is an increasingly rare thing when it comes to club nights; however, Discotekken is fast becoming an institution. Those who go to this monthly night in the Twisted Pepper seem to do so religiously, as evidenced by its rapidly approaching first birthday. Discotekken is Louis Scully’s baby, and read more…
