After a long and well-deserved rest in the wake of a quite tremendous Xmas party with Kwame and the Barrio 54 crew, RESET returns to the Menagerie for our first heavyweight hoedown of 2013 – Huzzah!!
Topping the bill, we are delighted to welcome a man who should need little introduction – to wit, Ireland’s finest producer of electronic music - Barry Lynn, aka BOXCUTTER.
Following recent performances and releases as The Host, Barry is dusting off his much-celebrated Boxcutter alias for an all-vinyl DJ set of choice cuts from his formidable private collection. Expect an expert blend of quality underground electronic music, featuring plenty of rare and still incredible-sounding early Dubstep singles (DMZ, Deep Medi, Tectonic, Hotflush) a smattering of vintage UK garage, with perhaps the odd jungle or footwork banger thrown in for good measure. A certified jazz and funk fanatic, Barry is known for his depth of knowledge and rarefied, eclectic tastes spanning many genres, so surprises are to be expected!
RESET’s star player, the quite frighteningly-talented KAIDI TATHAM will also be in the house, performing live keys on a selection of his own original productions. Kaidi is a multi-instrumentalist, writer and arranger of rare pedigree who's insanely soulful and wildly dexterous playing helped to define broken beat, featuring heavily on many of the key recordings to have emerged from the scene. He’s also a wickedly entertaining live performer who never fails to put a smile on his audience’s face. In short, he’s what James Brown might have termed a “Bad mutha”. Not one to miss!!
Adding yet more weight to the bill, we’re also chuffed to welcome upcoming Belfast-based beat-boxer CULL to the table. A regular performer at club nights vinyl combat and blasters of the universe, he’ll be treating us to a couple of high-energy, show-stopping live routines, fusing elements of hiphop, turntablism, dubstep and electro, using only his mouth and a muthafriggin microphone. WORD!!
Residents Kab Driver and Defcon will also be spinning a load of sweet-ass trax earlier on in the evening to get your juices a-flowin’.
PLUS - LIVE psych-tastic visuals from one-man electric light orchestra (and all-round genius) Barry Cullen aka BEW. Woo!!
COME ONE, COME ALL!
