Doug Cooney has been one of the driving forces in Irish techno for a number of years now, both his productions and his DJ sets are marvelled around the country and further afield, receiving support from the likes of Bens Sims, Answer Code Request and Jon Hester.
With previous releases on the likes of ORBIS, ORGONE, Research and his own RLSD imprint, we’re delighted to see Doug’s next EP was signed with none other than Bastardo Electrico, one of Irelands longest running labels/club-nights, headed up by Cork techno enthusiast Jamie Behan.
Doug’s Real//Sound imprint is more than just a label, it’s also an independent music school for aspiring DJs and producers in Dublin, hosting workshops and showcases for those involved.
We were lucky enough to pick up ‘Higher Self’ from his forthcoming ‘Dark Stream’ EP for a premiere. A deep, percussive track that channels the sound of old school techno with metallic riff that twist and turn while still maintaining a modern twist.
The EP drops on Sunday, May 6th… Pick up a copy here
