As a resident DJ of Berlin’s infamous Berghain / Panorama Bar, he moves floors of the world’s most prestigious and best venues.

With a combination of deep musical knowledge, unparalleled enthusiasm, and a vinyl collection of more than 30,000 records, DVS1 is also renowned as an outspoken defender of underground’s true values that established the American DJ, producer and label owner as a truly exceptional character of today’s contemporary electronic music scene.

LOW STEPPA + House Of Virus + DJ Ides
:: Sat 25th Nov
Doors 11pm Tickets €12.50/15  
Low Steppa’s tenure in the scene has been short but explosive due to his forward thinking and intelligent production work, making his popularity rise rapidly. Catapulting his career with his massive bootleg of Route 94’s ‘My Love’ reaching over 1.4million plays on YouTube in 2013 truly set the pace of things to come. The track received so much hype that Route 94 replaced his own version within club sets, giving it away for free across his social media channels. This prompted Low Steppa’s Soundcloud page to become an essential download destination for house fans. Now, a regular feature on the UK’s favourite radio shows, you can hear Low Steppa’s tracks on Kiss FM, Capital/ Capital Xtra FM and BBC Radio 1 Xtra.

While at Trinity College, she collaborated with future members of the likes of Little Green Cars, Slow Skies, and I Have A Tribe, as well as singing with Kíla, Niwel Tsumbu and Trinity Orchestra’s early pop endeavours.

KARL BLAU :: Fri 16th March
Doors 7pm Tickets €15  
Sequestered away in rural bliss, 90 minutes north of Seattle on the Washington state coast, Karl Blau has been making records for 20 years, but never with European distribution. So, when Bella Union released Introducing Karl Blau in 2016, it shone a belated and deserved light on “one of the great hidden treasures of music,” claimed album producer Tucker Martine. But given Introducing’s specific agenda – a set of gorgeous, lush cover versions drawing mostly on vintage Nashville’s country-soul with Blau concentrating on his rich, reverberating voice, his latest album Out Her Space is so different that it could be titled Reintroducing Karl Blau. Out Her Space, released 17th November on Bella Union, features all Blau’s own material, production and multi-instrumental skills, and forges a gorgeous, languid and hook-infested gumbo of soul, funk, some jazzy blowing and Afro-pop, to arrive somewhere else entirely.

ALL TVVINS :: Fri 30th March 2018
Doors 7.30pm Tickets €20  
The duo announced they will release their second track since ‘IIVV’ was released. Following on from “Alone Together” feat. James Vincent McMorrow, comes “Anything”, a clear step beyond anything that featured on ‘IIVV’ and a development on “Alone Together” When ‘IIVV’ was nominated for Album of the Year at the Choice Music Awards, it heralded the end of the album’s campaign. After a minimal break, the duo soon “turbo-boosted” their writing process where they amassed a group of new singles they plan on releasing over the coming months. Whereas they previously painstakingly crafted each song together, they instead found themselves creating almost completed ideas individually before allowing the other partner to put their stamp on it. Most of the new tracks emerged on piano and synths before being fleshed out into a band dynamic. Inspired by a whole world of influences, Lar describes them as being “varied and extreme” and “emotionally charged”, while Conor notes that his interest in keys means that he has been writing a lot more on piano. All Tvvins have previously shared stages with bands including Arcade Fire, Pixies and Foals, and have played events as diverse as the VICE House Party and the huge 2FM Xmas Ball in Dublin.
