BLAWAN ! (WARP, R&S Records, HESSLE Audio) Irish Debut @ DubCulture.

DubCulture Galway Presents BLAWAN:

This really is something special to kick off the summer.

Blawan, with only one release out on Hessle Audio was jumped on my label giant R&S, who have on their roster talent such as Aphex Twin, Model 500 + James Blake. Now we have him for his first Irish appearance, DubCulture back in the driving seat!

Hessle Audio released Blawan's Fram/Iddy, which truely is a haunting, hard percussion driven beast. Check it out here, fuckin spooky!

FRAM: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cX3J3yuYEqQ
IDDY: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8IXMTZ40Iy0&feature=related

(Buy it here http://boomkat.com/vinyl/303581-blawan-fram-iddy)

R&S then in true pioneering style jumped on the producer spotting his obvious talent, releasing the HUGE Bohla EP, which demonstrates his true diversity. My favourite, with a lovely 303 flex Bohla, HUGE!!!

BOHLA: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QQyEBaZAV50&feature=related

(Buy it here http://boomkat.com/downloads/377637-blawan-bohla-ep)

WARP Records then...Jumped on the band wagon, releasing a wicked Blawan lick of THE HUNDRED IN THE HANDS - Pigeons, another favorite of mine:


We love our bass in Galway, the home of DubCulture!!!
Tenor in, doors at 11, Carbon.
6th May.

death to mp3s

well sick of having to give the gain on my mixer a boost to make up for crappy compressed files.


Distance - Sky's Alight

Just four more days now to Distance in the Pav

This track was an interesting offering from him early this year. Clearly inspired by all that good minimal shit thats coming out of the revived dnb scene in the UK in the last 12 months, Distance's 12'' on autonomic was a very fine offering. heres the A-side

sicko cell

forthcoming on the ever magnificent swamp81...lotta speculation who made this choon. answers on a postcard

Distance on feb 24th

Righto - We've Distance pencilled in for February 24th in the Pav

Sorry for the late notice but couldn't be avoided. Anyway, if you've been into dubstep for a while you'll know the score with this guy. A fantastically versatile producers but perhaps best known for his metal sounding riffs in such unreal classics as this:

Steve had him up in Galway about a year and a half ago and he played definitely what I'd consider one of top 3 sets i've ever heard at a dubculture gig so it is with little doubt that I say hes going to smash the place up.

This ones our first thursday gig in the pav, we'll still be doing a monthly weekend date touch wood but we'll probably be doing the odd thursday and trying out different things over the next few months....but for this one if you can blog it, post it on your facebook (or just shite on about it in general!) it'd be a great help

in the mean time you can grab a nice mix by him for RBMA last summer here:

Headhunter @ Dubculture Video

Our newly we Paul ENFP put this together after we had headhunter over last year, but I only just watched it now! best guest we've had over in cork in my opinion. the video features the footcrab vip which was v fresh at the time, and that choon (probably by joker) thats been doing the rounds the last few months. enjoy

U-bee - Beyond imagination

Excellent wonky hiphop and general electronic electiveness from dubculture hero U-bee from a few months back. great mix
