New MMOTHS-‘Folding’ & Remix Of Vacationer-‘Trip’

Lovely, just lovely. Jack Collerhan  is back with a new tune and a remix of Vacationer’s track ‘Trip’. The lad who’s given us more spectacular electronic beats over the last year than anyone has produced another stirring piece. ‘Folding’ is a little more atmospheric than his debut EPIt shows how far the youngster has come in the last year. The consistent quality of  his music is something that has not changed. His remix of ‘Trip’ adds a totally different feel to the tune. Check both out below and download ‘Folding’ for freeThis is seriously chill.

Ones To Watch: North Side Drive

This lad. Have been meaning to write a piece on him for about a week. North Side Drive, an musician/producer from Cork. As a huge fan of anything subtle, his stuff is really out there. Very much in the James Blake piano/electronic vibe, I first found his cover of Bon Iver’s track ‘The Wolves.’ So beautiful and sparse. This is not the ordinary for me. I don’t normally write about music this classically influenced, but this is well worth a lesson. There’s gonna be more great music from this guy, I can already tell. Check out his social media stuff below, along with some tunes. Class act.

Ones To Watch: Clu

Ah, tonight has been awesome for discovering new stuff. Found this through a Facebook page I’m in. Clu, an electronic producer from here in Dublin’s fair city. Apparently MMOTHS has been spinning his tunes during his sets and its easy to see why. Clu’s music is cut from the same cloth. Sparse, expansive and seriously chill. This really is a golden age for Irish electronic music. We are really producing the artists and the music, from REPLETEto MMOTHSto Reid and now this lad. Keep it up people.

Chromatics & Real Estate Added to Forbidden Fruit Line-Up

Real Estate and Chromatics have been added to the line-up for Forbidden Fruit 2012. Me and a mate were cursing and bemoaning the lack of a Real Estate gig in Ireland only yesterday. Should have known they’d be announced for an Irish gig the next day! Great news.

New Solar Bears

The second track to emerge from Solar Bears forthcoming second album Supermigration,’ ‘Cosmic Runner’ is another fantastic offering Ireland’s top notch producers. This of course follows on from the first track released, ‘Alpha People.’ Cracking stuff.

Ones To Watch: PRINCESS

These guys are a throwback. From Dublin, it is easy to see their influences. Think Nirvana, Soundgarden and Pearl Jam. These lads take those influences and create a modern version of grunge. Of course they have an Irish charm and hard work. Their twitter account is very entertaining and of course their music is class. Check some stuff out below along with their social networking malarky.

Ones To Watch: REPLETE

After the emergence of MMOTHS in a big way last year, Irish electronic music has never had a higher profile. This guy is certainly heavily involved in that movement. Peter Lawlor AKA REPLETE is one of the freshest producers I’ve come across in a while. He’s originally from Kilkenny, but now based in Cork. His music is lush, expansive and perfectly paced. His tune ‘Closer To’ was the first tune I came across from him. As people who read this blog know, I am a huge fan of electronic music. This is the best piece of Electronic music I’ve listened to this year. He has also produced stellar remixes of Tara Masterson and an ould band from America called The Beach Boys. I am looking forward to more music from this guy. Exciting stuff. Check out his official sites and some music below:
