Sleep Thieves

Sleep Thieves play moody and hypnotic electronic music, described as ‘disco-noir’  (The Irish Times). They have built a loyal live following throughout Ireland for their vital and atmospheric performances. A trio with a simply captivating sound, Sleep Thieves have emerged as one of the Irish music scene’s most promising acts with the album You Want The Night

Sleep Thieves, are Sorcha Brennan (vocals, synths), Wayne Fahy (Vocals, synths, bass, programming), and Keith Byrne (synths, guitar, bass, programming). The Dublin-dwelling trio met through Twitter where they bonded over film soundtracks and vintage synths. This musical friendship was solidified in the recording of their self-released EP, ‘Islands’ in 2012, which garnered accolades from the press. Their follow up full length album, ‘You Want the Night’, was released on June 17th via Minty Fresh Records US), who have previously launched The Cardigans and Veruca Salt to stardom. If Kate Bush had joined Enya and Bat for Lashes to pen a soundtrack for Jane Eyre this album could be it. Haunting, dreamy and cinematic, it opens up and rolls in like a storm over the moors, calling out to a forgotten love, enticing and caressing the listener.

“Dublin-based Sleep Thieves will definitely entice you to stay up late, whether to dance or drift off in a daydream, but you won’t hold that against them.” – The Guardian

Fish Go Deep

Greg Dowling and Shane Johnson have been playing records in their hometown of Cork for more than twenty years. Throughout the 1990s their residency at Sir Henry’s introduced a generation of Irish clubbers to house music and played host to some of the biggest names on the underground circuit.

Since finishing their Sir Henry’s residency in 2001 the duo have travelled widely, bringing their unique sound to clubs and festivals throughout Ireland, Europe and beyond. During that time they have also hosted many of the world’s top house DJs at their regular hometown Go Deep parties.

Greg and Shane have a long history on the airwaves, starting on local pirate stations, before moving their Go Deep show to Cork’s Red FM. Today the show is broadcast on stations in Ireland, the UK and Europe and reaches the wider world as a much-loved weekly podcast.

Over the last fifteen years, Greg and Shane’s production work under the Fish Go Deep name has connected with a wide global audience. After an early series of EPs on New Jersey’s seminal i! Records, more than forty releases have followed on labels as diverse as Germany’s Innervisions, New York’s Strictly Rhythm, England’s NRK and San Francisco’s Om Records.

In late 2005 their own Go Deep imprint got off to a flying start when the first release, “The Cure and the Cause”, with vocalist Tracey K, was licensed by UK house giant, Defected, and became a huge club and chart hit.

Since then they have released more than two dozen EPs on Go Deep, Ork and other labels and have remixed a wide variety of house luminaries  –  Kerri Chandler, Alton Miller, Audio Soul Project, Charles Webster and Jamie Anderson feat. K-Alexi to name a few.

In July 2012 the duo released their second album, Draw The Line, to widespread acclaim and worldwide radio and club DJ support.

So Far So Deep Volume One, a compilation of their own productions and remixes, was released in January 2014.

Horse Meat Disco

Now approaching their tenth year of existence, the four man dj club collective Horse Meat Disco have continued to lead the way in the disco field with packed residencies at their HQ Eagle London in London’s inner city Vauxhall, Cielo and verious venues in New York, Prince Charles in Berlin and Silencio/Wanderlust in Paris. Inspired by the music and inclusive ethos of New York’s heady club scene in the 70s & 80s the collective have garnered a unique reputation for throwing amazing parties with unmatchable sets. The quartet of djs each mix their own individual interpretations of the disco sound with a soundtrack that marries their expertise and shared knowledge and experience in the field. Expect all manner of dancefloor movers from classic to cosmic to deep disco, italo, punk funk, house, even techno, electric bangers and just plain old rare oddities. The collective always keep an healthy eye on the dancefloor whilst never forgetting growing current sounds.

As well as their weekly club for the more discerning end of the weekend hedonist which happens every sunday in London the collective are trailblazing the disco heat every week across Europe, America and the rest of the world. Their skills in turning the party round came to the attention of revered Parisian sound architect for Chanel Mr Michel Gaubert who regularly enliists the boys to play for Chanel worldwide. The fashion world has certainly embraced the gang having been enlisted to dj for brands as diverse as Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton, Lanvin, Acne and Diesel. Their current schedule sees them juggling dj dates with serious studio time as they record their first artist album collaborating with some of their favourite artists (expected at the end of 2013). For those who can’t wait to see what they come up with in the studio, the boys have three successful compilation lps out on Strut / K7! Records with album number 4 out in late May 2013. Their real passion for the nightclub dancefloor burns as strong as ever seeing them play at Festivals far and wide most notably at Glastonbury with the awesome NYC Downlow experience, Bestival Isle of Wight, Lovebox, Parklife and Warehouse Project Manchester, Electric Elephant in Croatia, Vivid at Sydney Opera House, Future Music Festival Australia-wide PS1 NYC and FYF Festival Los Angeles.
