Belfast’s DSNT have quickly become known for their monstrous Lumen shows consisting of techno lineups that could match any city in the world as well as incredible visual shows that coincide with their Guerrilla Shout project. Following the success of their club shows DSNT followed on to start up their own record label, DSNT Records with DSNT005 being released recently with tracks from AnD, Sunil Sharpe, Eomac and Fran Hartnett.
This year we’ve already seen them celebrate their fifth birthday with LUMEN005 including the likes of Bas Mooy, DeFeKT, Ansome and Myler on the bill which was followed by a lineup that definitely smashed a few windows of Queen’s University in Belfast as LUMEN006 saw AnD premiere their 23 Minute Warning AV Show alongside one of the countries favourite’s, Dax J. To top off two enormous shows June 3rd saw Lumen curate a stage at this year’s AVA Festival located in the picturesque T13 shipping yard in the Titanic Quarter, Belfast. Headlining the stage we saw Rebekah who was joined by homegrown-heroes, Sunil Sharpe and DeFeKT as they brought their Tinfoil live show to Belfast for the first time. As well as them the lineup included plenty of more Irish talent including Myler who obliterated the stage with his hard-hitting Cider & Bonfires set, as well as Techno & Cans, DSNT residents Nez and Dallas, and ELLLL who all made a huge impact throughout the day.
DSNT are clearly no strangers to pushing local talent which is evident as they head to Berlin and take over the world famous club, Griessmuehle with a completely Irish lineup. LUMEN Berlin sees Myler bring his Cider & Bonfires set to Germany. He’ll be joined by Fran Hartnett who’ll be playing live on the night as well as Sam Greenwood, Jake Nolan and Tommy Holohan who’ll be playing under the Techno&Cans banner. Nez, Dallas and Cave DJs fly the DSNT flag at this one, and finally Hallion completes the lineup.
