It’s been a long time coming but we’ve finally announced the date and lineup for our launch in the most impressive venue in the country. The Wright Venue has dominated every nightclub and venue poll since it’s opening in 2009. This 80’000 square foot Nightclub Mecca is located in Swords on the northside of Dublin. This establishment has seen pretty much every celebrity to ever grace the emerald isle. Whether it’s an after party from 50 Cents’ show in the o2, Ellie Goulding playing a live DJ set or Pete Tong bangin out all things house and beautiful, this place has seen them all.
2012, 2013 and 2014 were particularly massive years for the Wright Venue in regard to putting on major international electronic music acts. I personally went to the majority of them and they were always immeasurably insane . The venue itself is perfectly designed, the sound quality from the house PA is sublime and the production fit outs are always through the roof. This time period was mostly dominated by EDM acts in regard to their electronic music bookings. Some of these colossal names include Laidback Luke, Martin Garrix, Afrojack, Dada Life, Hardwell, Sandro Silva, Quintino, Rehab and Nervo to name a few. Now our vibe is a little darker than that. No disrespect to EDM it just ain’t our thing.
We have been given an opportunity to showcase what our house side is all about and what better way to do it than get Eric Prydz’ 2 right men and Pryda Friends duo Jeremy Olander and Fehrplay to headline! These Swedes are the real fucking deal! These two guys produce the best banging and gripping progg that I can find anywhere on this beautiful rock we call earth.
Fehrplay has been inside a whirlwind since bursting onto the scene in 2009 with club bomb ’Meow’ on Ministry of Sound. Fehrplay’s sound has matured with a new vibrant funk ever present, but whilst still maintaining his branded, epic cinematic film score-esque breakdowns. In 2012, the 24 year old Norwegian signed to Eric Prydz’s legendary Pryda Friends label. It was a move that would elevate his career substantially as he joined the prestigious roster, which has featured some goliaths of dance music including Axwell, Paolo Mojo, Felix Da Housecat and Sebastien Leger. He has received support from several of the industry’s big players from prydz to Avicci. Well with Incognito and Nightrider in your locker why wouldn’t he? Ultimately Fehrplay is a massive talent with a huge career ahead of him. Keep you eye on this one.
When Eric Prydz first heard Jeremy Olander’s demo he knew there was something special going on there. Shortly afer he signed him to Pryda Friends and brought him on tour with him. His first two offerings on Pryda Friends, the ‘Riots/‘Evade’/‘Chronic’ EP, which was later followed up with ‘Fairfax’/’Rypamont’, were both two of the label’s biggest Beatport sellers in 2011. Olander was getting massive support from industry heavies like John Digweed and Pete Tong. Jeremy’s educated and emotional progressive style of house is a novelty in its own right, and his staple infused techno productions, under the alias Dhillon, has rattled the underground techno scene with consistent support from acts such as Adam Beyer, Nicole Moudaber, Alan Fitzpatrick and Joel Mull. This guys is a complete all rounder oozing with caw talent and virtuoso like creative ability. His track “Let me Feel” has turned a ridiculous amount of heads since its release and it’s a great way to describe what Olander is all about. That’s just me personally but I think the track itself is a masterpiece. Effectively Jeremy Olander is a colossal talent and we can’t wait to see what he has in store for us on the 6th!
On support duty we have Strictly Deep owner and Sin resident Jonathan Kiely. We are chuffed to him him involved as he’s certainly one of the most exciting indigenous talents in the game at the moment. His track “Let it go” is doing particularly well and has gained support from a large number of industry heavies. He is also on the line up for Life festival again this year where he plays on the Bedlem stage on Saturday. All in all this particular Irish talent is undeniably making massive progress in the house game and rumor has it he’s planning on revealing a new exciting alias. Exciting stuff all around!
Opening the night up in the main room is Diem rezzo Michael Hand. Michael is a true raw talent that has been hanging out of nightclubs, venues, gigs and festivals from a frighteningly young age. Over the years he has developed a knowledge and love for the game unparalleled by most. He doesn’t discriminate in regard to genre’s in the slightest. He loves it all! He a calculating DJ who operates like a surgeon if we’re being honest. Technically phenomenal and his improvisation skills are excellent. Overall this man never fails to deliver the perfect set. You just wait and see.
We have decided to go mad a run a B2B marathon in the Garden Terrace where 4 pairs will go on the offensive against one another.
Up first is Dan Lynagh and Matt Reilly. These two residents are quite close mates and I can guarantee they will prepare something eccentric to say the least. Matt has been know to venture into the area of ‘pots and pans’ techno. Not tonight though. He was warned! It’s deep and funky house all night.
Kenny McAuley and Gary Moran are up next. These two are primarily coming from trance background however Kenny produces the deep and dark stuff under another pseudonym “Johan”. He may feature a few of his new productions. These two will push the bar out while keep it nice and deep for the most part. You may see a little tech here.
David Moran and Sean Tobin are up next. These two are the dark horses of the line up. There is a big techno possibility here. Not the pots and pans stuff. More like Carl Cox playing the Boiler Room Villa Takeover kind of buzz. I can definitely see some disco being played here, yes perhaps a Bondax MixMag Lab kind of buzz. That would go down very very very very well.
Closing the night off are Shanika and Nicole Sutherland, aka The Sutherland Sisters. This pair have been making serious moves in town as of late and are probably one of the most sought after deep house acts to add to any promoters lineup. This finishing set will contain all the exciting deep stuff that are rattling dance floors all over Europe. Pretty simple really. This will be a bangin conclusion to our night. I’de suggest not missing.
Ultimately this event will ooze a raw house vibe. No cheddar. No bullshit. Just good vibes, good people and good music. See you there.
