Guest Mix: Kevin O’Shea


This is the first in a series of sorts that will hopefully continue in the new year. We all like seeing mixes pop up on-line from our favourite producers and Djs   but as we  know there are plenty of Djs out there – the local dj if you will – who get little coverage,  don’t get many gigs  outside their own area but are just as dedicated about collecting music and playing it as any amount of touring Djs.  There’s plenty of these guys knocking around Ireland and I’ve decided that in between our more “high profile” guest mixes that it’s time to give some of them  coverage.

First up is Kevin O’Shea, who comes from Lixnaw in Kerry, way down the southern tip of the country. He’s involved in the Know Techno night in Tralee in Kerry who put on sporadic parties  and recently played support to Levon Vincent up here  in Dublin.  He’s supplied us with a mix that’s on a deep tip and I think some  of you peeps will be down with it.  Enjoy!

Who do you think you are kidding?

Disruption, abstraction, subversiveness, outsider, challenging preconceptions, fucking things up and just plain old weird. Terms, ideas and narratives that never stop being appealing.

Techno music as a form is quite…
