Rabble Strictly Vinyl Soundclash

Playing at this tomorrow night. Normally disapprove of vinyl only nights. There’s usually talk of ‘real’ music involved and people using it as an excuse to play their old funk and liquid funk records or whatever. Also excludes a lot of people and music(I suppose that’s the point). Having said that it’s fun to flex some skills with people and this should be some bwad soundboy fun.

 Looking forward to this- the cream of Irish hip hop with skills, brains and humour. Also, I’ll be getting them to work in Scratcho-Vision -i.e.  using turntables to control images and their soundtracks at the same time!!!!!!!!.

Expect freeeeshhh Tootpaste ad footage , lots of Vincent Price trailers and Barberella.



!Kaboogie / Poster Fish Promotions / BarryGruff present BRAINMELT! with…



Aka, Djackulate and Moschops, aka, Paddy and the Heart Brake Kidd, Neil Bucannon uses a patented hardware and wax “audio fun system”, consisting of 4 turntables, 1 cdj, MPC1000, SP404, Korg KP3, Pioneer EFX500, Loop pedal, Rane mixers and unwanted records Neil takes bits of everything to create an audio Art Attack without PVA glue.
NEIL BUCANNON audio can be found on both these soundcloud pages:

 Producer, remixer, award-winning scratch deejay, messer, and all-round talented fecker…. DJ MEK has been bangin’ out the quality since the late 80s. Mek is probably best known for being “the cat behind the decks” in legendary Irish hip-hip band Scary Eire, and for winning a ridiculous amount of awards for his turntable skills. In recent years Mek has played some unreal live sets and put out some fantastic mixes (check the links below), so we are verrrry excited about this one.


Deviant makes skratch music. Unadulterated by synthesizers, untouched by guitars, not a delay pedal in sight. Records and hands. Turntable and mixer. Loop pedal and multitracker. A familiar presence on the Irish live circuit, Deviant has been musically active since 2001, promoting the Rootdown and GC Underground nights (with international hip-hop luminaries Edan, The P Brothers, DJ Noize and Supernatural), as part of four piece turntable band Vince Mack Mahon (with Jimmy Penguin, Mikey Fingers and Tweek) and as a founding member of Community Skratch, a non-profit collective dedicated to promoting the arts of turntable manipulation and sample culture. His recent live-sets have been mind-blowing, and his mixes, remixes, and original releases have been unreal. Have a listen for yourself…


Imploded View aka Jerome McCormick is Longford based beat-maker whose forte is experimental electronic music. Using a whole manner of retro synths and 1/4 inch Reel-to-Reel tape machine he creates extremely chilled ambient sounds. This is a rare opportunity to see him perform before the release of his debut LP later this year.

 Looking forward to this at the weekend. stat!k  – A new series of gigs focusing on experimental/cutting music, film, visuals and reactive/generative processes.  Don’t miss it.

!Kaboogie is pleased to present NHKyx, aka Kouhei Matsunaga.

Born in Osaka, he is a musician and drawing artist. He divides his time between Osaka and Berlin. He started drawing during childhood under the influence of his grandfather. He grew up listening to hardcore-techno and hiphop, studied architecture and has been making music since 1992.

His first album “Upside Down” was released by Mille Plateaux (Germany)  in 1998. He has also Collaborated with Merzbow, Sensational, Autechre’s Sean Booth, Mika Vainio, Conrad Schnitzler, Anti pop consortium High Priest, Puppetmastaz crew, sensational (ex jungle brothers), Asmus Tietchens etc.

His music appears on Raster Noton, PAN, Skam, Important records, Wordsound etc. Since 2002, he also runs his own Flying Swimming label for publishing experimental contemporary music and art.
During his live set in Dublin he will be running an audio reactive visual accompaniment to his music (audio reaction visual patch by paul seen, UK).

“sounds like ghetto-tech reverse-engineered for the sound art crowd,
-ruffneck yet cerebral, progressive rhythm mechanics” – Boomkat

a recent mix -

Legion of Two 

With ‘ Against’ ’one of the best tracks on one of the records of the year –  The CLOAKS remix album ‘Versions Grain’ ( Feat.  Devilman , JK flesh [Justin Broderick ex Napalm Death, Godflesh] , Deadbeat, Cloaks and more )and their remix of Hands Up Who Wants Do Die’s ‘Sailor’ and their album Riffs on Planet Mu, Legion of Two are a serious force in Irish Music .

The company they keep on that Cloaks record gives a good idea of what to expect from Alan O’Boyle(Decal) and drummer David Lacey. They bring to mind the grindcore/ metal/industrial music of Godflesh, Laibach and others from the early days of dance music while also feeling completely current. With heavy, head nodding riddim n’ bass lines and industrial textures they deserve the term post dubstep in way that many don’t. A Mary Anne Hobbs favourite whose debut album Riffs was released by Planet Mu in 2009.  Alan from the band describes it as “industrial hip-hop or something”, which sounds about right to us – it has their usual blend of skull-crushing bass, hypnotic drumming and lashings of atmosphere…. Superb.

An interview from State magazine here

A stream of their recent hands-up-who-wants-to-die remix. here

(scroll down to hear them in the mix in a show featuring lots of said Cloaks remix album)

METACHAOS  by Alessandro Bavari 

Also on the night, a showing of the short film – METACHAOS  by Alessandro Bavari which won the 2011 Golden Nica at Prix Ars Electronica, Austria.

Alessandro Bavari’s “Metachaos” is an impressive display of the amazing graphics that can be produced with leading-edge hardware and software. The 8-minute clip begins with a sequence of clear, geometric forms that suggest a serene world. But it doesn’t take long until it’s apparent that this was just the calm before the storm. Shadowy creatures and shockingly grotesque figures intrude into this domain rendered in black & white and sepia tones and rip it to pieces. Using the interplay of light and shadow, intentionally shaky camera movements and quick cuts, Bavari takes us on a tour de force through an unsettling imaginary cosmos that grips viewers and doesn’t let them loose. In addition to its extraordinary visuals, “Metachaos” features an impressive composed soundscape of incredibly concentrated intensity—noise elements paired with driving beats, panic-stricken screams, the rattling of bones and gale-force winds.

Playing Gramophone Discoidness at this –

Alphabet Set : Decade (II): Saturday 14th April
*\/ Live \/ *

*/\  DJ  /\ *

The Alphabet Set are back at 13 High St for the 2nd installment of our 10th anniversary U bar sessions. The former Molloys pub, where the Alphabet Set ran our first sessions, will again host the choicest selection of vinyl diggers and speaker treaters from the collective’s finely tuned EarRadar™ .

Our goal at the time of starting ten short years ago was to provide a platform for bedroom producers and DJs to  get out, play live, perform and release. These sessions are no different with a mix of up and coming and established names in the monthly melting pot.

Admission is free and session runs 9 – 1.

Don’t be fashionably late if you are coming, the last event was a full house so please arrive early to guarantee entry.

Gigs Diary

 Spring is in the air….. Just had it pointed out to me that I haven’t posted here in over a month. To prove I’ve not been idle or off scamming tech start up grants, here’s what dilettantism I’ve been at the last while, up to and including tomorrow night. This week in the Kclub we’re joined by All City artist and top east coast(U.S.)   hip hop wonk Knxwledge. Also on the bill is Dublin’s Marcus( Ignored Playaz) , who, with his no nonsense approach to quality booking and value, has given Dublin’s UK bass gig scene(trips off the tongue that) the kick in the arse it needed. That Boy Tim returns to make up for his too brief set last time. Full info and sound clips etc here.

I was going to put up the flyers for the gigs I played last week; Music Hall Ragga master General Levy and Jittebug’s Hideout at the Ormand Wine bar, but can only find pesky Facebook thumbnails. I have been noticing this recently, it’s one thing for Dublin council to ban flyers , it’s another for people to self edit via facebook so thoroughly that only illegible 10k thumbnails are available ie.-see Kittler’s Protected Mode for more on this

Off to the Doctor will continue this when I get back.

Other stuff I was up to was a warehouse party with no music made after 1960, ‘cept a class early morning session with punk funk, moody bass and 80’s 12″‘s with djackulate scratchin over it.

Started gettin’ ready for top dub n’ circus fest Boomtown which looks like a lot of fun. Check out the line up here

and did a fun , cheesy pr/gig thing for the Electric Picnic. Below pics that ran in most of the Irish rags.

And at the moment music wise, really feeling –

 Old Apparutus

Have to go battle the doleful forces of free money, back later and finish this.

Also a couple of radio show which I’m uploading now.
