Three of the best
It never rains but it pours, as the simultaneous release of three EPs from one of our fave producers attests.

Decky Hedrock’s solo project, Sirkus Sirkuz, is to release three EPs on the same day with the same label. Sounds like good news to us!
Among his new offerings are ‘Little Rodent’, inspired by Deadmau5, ‘Plastic Explosive’ and ‘Telefunk’. On remix duty are Elektropusher, Galactus, Dolly Deveraux, We Take Polaroids, McLennan, Alexander Technique, Kik Katz, and Superstringz.
With nods towards acid, deep house, electro and tech, there’s something for everyone. Get it November 5. See facebook.com/Sirkussirkuz.

In Waterford, there’s no better way to celebrate ten years of Resistance parties than a ten-hour, multi–room dancefest! It is all part of a plan to bring techno back to Waterford! The line–up is reminiscent of the early days of the event, with Phil Kieran, Niall Power and Johnny Moy on the decks, along Christian Smith, Justin Robertson, Donal Dineen, Gavin Boyce, Darren Rice, Alan Harris and Joe Goul! It’s going down Sunday, October 28 at the Forum, Waterford. Viva la resistance! Check tiny.cc/zdpllw to warm you up. Plus enjoy a recent DJ mix by Christian Smith here: tiny.cc/rapllw and one from Justin Robertson here: tiny.cc/f9ollw.
Speaking of Phil Kieran, the Belfast-born producer has released a blistering single on his label Phil Kieran Recordings! The Never Believed EP features a hot–as remix from renowned UK producer Maya Jane Coles! Phil’s also starting a new band, with two EPs already lined up and remixes incoming from from Andrew Weatherall and David Holmes! Sound good? Well, when Martin Gore, aka the founding member of Depeche Mode, personally asks you, and no-one else, to rework a track, you know you can do no wrong! See Phil playing the aforementioned Resistance Party!
