In preparation for what I hear is the coolest electronic festival around, I’m familiarizing myself with the line up. Thought I should try to bring it all to one place for you guys.
Richie Hawtin recently introduced the young Dubliner ahead of his first Minus event. Matador now takes the bull by the horns for his first full EP for Minus, exploring the twisted but organic techno sound he’s best known for. He’s also a trained chef! Gavin Lynch’s sound is described as a “slow building bomb” on his facebook page. Be the judge.
When I first heard Viceroy’s While We’re in Love (Feat. Ghost Beach), I had it on repeat for like a week. Then I discovered his Mixtapes on Soundcloud, then I saw his picture… I mean ladies, if talent isn’t enough, this guy is destined for success! 😉
Austen Afridi, a.k.a Viceroy is originally from the East Coast, but you wouldn’t know it from his refreshing summery sound. He released his Sunburn EP in 2011, and has been staying busy since. His latest, Solé Fixtape Vol. 6 is perfect for everything from pool parties to car rides. He’s worked with amazing artists like Breakbot, YELLE and St. Lucia. If you’ve got your mind right, add him to your list of ones to watch.
