Le Galaxie’s joyous, ceiling-melting live shows paved the blazing neon trail to the critically acclaimed debut album, 2011’s Laserdisc Nights 2, voted Entertainment.ie’s # 1 Irish album of the year. Meshing pounding techno rhythms, shimmering cyber-synths and cascading dream-streams of sonic guitar-wizardry, the 4-piece have stamped their ‘grid vs. guitars’ live dance frenzy on Ireland, UK, France, Sweden and Germany. The Irish Times on their now legendary afternoon show at 2011’s Electric Picnic: ‘They own the stage and their loud beat and chunky-synth laden electronic music is pumped with guts…Seriously fun and fun in its seriousness…’
May sees Le Galaxie’s follow-up EP ‘Fade 2 Forever’ and a summer festival tour of UK and Ireland.
Blissfully nerdy in his approach, Daithí uses loopstations, kaoss Pads, synthesizers and drum machines to create a unique and exceptional sound all centered around one instrument: the Fiddle. Some people call it post trad, others say it’s Indie traditional electro math rock looped with a twist, whatever the genre the end result is energetic, loud and a damn good time. Daithí’s debut year has been an extremely successful one, with performances in festivals such as Castle Palooza, Knockanstockan, Life and an exceptional Electric picnic set on the body and soul main stage. Throw in a performance in wembley arena to a 10,000 strong crowd, plus support slots to the XX and Dj Shadow, and it is easy to see that the capabilities of this newcomer are endless. Its fun, funky, and the young people, well they just love it.
White Collar boy are two piece electronic-garage group from Dublin, Gavin White and Mark Cummins.
