ELECTRONIC – 2010 Sounds of Northern Ireland

Northern Ireland has been a hotbed of cutting edge creativity since the early days of dance music. Belfast boy David Holmes put Northern Ireland on the international underground dance map way back with his legendary Sugar Sweet nights. Ever since, a wealth of creative talent and a vibrant club culture has thrived across Northern Ireland.
During October 2010, the FFWD Programme will be promoting ELECTRONIC – a double promotional compilation CD that highlights this creativity – to media and industry delegates at the world’s leading international club music conference – The Amsterdam Dance Event.
CD 1 features some of Northern Ireland’s most successful artists – The Japanese Popstars, Fergie, Phil Kieran and Simon Patterson and also provides a platform for emerging artists such as Sneijder, Mark Rogan and Kab Driver.
CD2 features 2 great guest mixes by Psycatron and Space Dimension Controller.
Psycatron are made up of Dave Oost Lievense… they’ve been described as “one of the most exciting acts of their genre” and have released tracks on some of the world’s most respected labels; Planet E, R&S, Tronic and International Deejay Gigolo.
Space Dimension Controller is the alter ego of 20 year old Jack Hamill…
“Imagine Prince, James Stinson and Manual Gottsching hitting the studio together and you’ll have some idea of how sumptuous and fantastical this music is” (Fact).
