Distortion have announced the line up for their second season with a healthy mix between international talent and the acts from home we all know and love – living up to their promise of bringing you deep and eclectic blends of some of the best house music around.
They’ve really made the effort to go off the beaten track with the acts lined up to play their autumn and winter series, with some acts debuting in Dublin and in what’s considered to be one of Dublin’s best intimate venue Wigwam.
Moxie, an NTS radio resident, will be bringing her touring club night ‘On Loop’ night to Ireland for the first time and we can’t wait to see what’s in store for the club with an ethos of ensuring good sound systems and a safe, comfortable atmosphere and space for dancers, with the added extra of confetti, disco balls and more. Guests she’s had on her show and her touring night so far include Leon Vynehall, Joy Orbison, Bambounou, Shanti Celeste, Saoirse, Peach, Julio Bashmore, George Fitzgerald, Dan Shake, Midland, Avalon Emerson and many more, so we can only assume it’s not going to disappoint.
Sweden’s Baba Stiltz will be returning after several shows here before at DJ Deece’s ‘Deece series’ and at a previous Distortion night alongside R. Kitt. The date comes following a gig at Belfast’s new series of events BreezeBlock at the end of this month.
Pear’s beloved Fio’n’Jio will be opening up the anticipated season, while international acts like Baba Stiltz will be supported by local collectives like Bodytonic, Distortion and more. One of techno’s most loved producers Skee Mask will also be making a trip to Dublin, and the line up features a B2B with Denmark’s mystery men, DJ Sports and DJ Central. More dates are due to be announced for December and January so be sure to keep your eyes peeled.
