There has been an influx of music productions and new labels bursting out of Ireland in the last 12 months, with eager musicians keen to put their music out into the world, showcasing their talents and ideas far and wide.
Dominic Smith aka Laughing Man, is one of those exact people. A regular face and DJ around the city of Dublin for years, playing at parties, raves and events, and now, fine tuning his productions in the studio and releasing some excellent music.
Hosta is a new Dublin based label run by Dominic, using his Laughing Man’s original and collaboration projects. Each release will be pressed with its own identifiable coloured marble style record.
“I wanted this to be the first step in developing and honing my sound, Re-Introduction stuck to my original sound of dubby textures and crisp tight drums with some experimental sounds. Echo was my first steps into a more breaks driven minimal groove. The final track on the release is Perception I wanted to try blend two different styles together and solid dubby floor driven track with a more deeper piano melody.”
