Next up on our 5 Essential Festival Cuts series in collaboration with BD Festival is one of the most exhilarating names in Irish house music, Karl Seery. The electrifying DJ and producer serenades us with a dancefloor-focused selection that moves through trance-brushed house, 90s rave classics, Chicago piano anthems and more.
Karl Seery is no stranger to the electronic music scene in Ireland over the last few years playing at venues such as Bowlane Social Club, Cyprus Avenue Cork, and Index Dublin supporting acts like Solardo, Obskür, Chantel Kavanagh and Mella Dee. The youngster has most notably held down a residency at Space Bar Ibiza In May with Abode Records records for their Sundays at Eden pre-party.
His own productions have racked up over 3 million streams across all streaming platforms with a string of self-releases and signings with labels such as the infamous Nervous Records, Monki &Friends, Choki Biki Records and most recently having his tracks played by Jamie Jones at Amnesia Ibiza and on his Hot Robot Radio show. It goes without saying that the future is bright for Karl Seery, and the sky is the limit for the prince of Irish house music.
Karl Seery selects his 5 essential festival cuts ahead of his return to BD Festival.
Karl Seery – Get On The Floor
I definitely had a sweaty festival tent or small intimate venue in mind when producing this track, the main lead stab is very energetic and groovy along with some gritty 90s vocal samples.
L.P Rhythm – Set Me Free
Perfect for a massive sound system, in my opinion, the groovy bassline consistently drives the track forward accompanied by many different 90s-inspired vocals, organs, synths and stabs. Proper feel-good slammer!
Kyle Starkey – Get On Now [System Records]
Highly energetic catchy synth lines with infectious vocals are the only way to explain this one, always goes down very well in my sets, really digging Kyle’s music lately, he’s one up-and-coming producer to keep an eye on in 2024.
FSOM – Barefoot in Sydney (Sam Alfreds Launceston Edit)
Fast-paced, arpeggiated 90s piano tracks have always been my favourite, and inspire my own productions massively, I had so many to choose from when picking my 5 essential festival weapons but this edit by Sam Alfred comes out on top every time!
Strike – U Sure Do (Tony Di Vits V2 Mix) [Fresh Records]
This remix from Tony Di Vit is the ultimate closing track for me, proper pumping and euphoric!
