This week’s edition of the local selection mix comes from one of Dublin’s most seasoned yet young DJs, Lukā Kōlōna. Being an ally of many of the city’s collectives and having such an expansive taste makes him one of the most called upon selectors for a range of gigs that vary from support slots to closing spots and other bits in between.
Recent notable gigs include warming up for Klockworks-touted Etapp Kyle in Index, along with closing out Hangar after the mysterious SNTS for Techno & Cans, not to mention a headline slot in Galway for VSN in October. With consistent gigs coming in the shape of Toast, Oktopus and Techno & Cans, Kōlōna’s sound isn’t easy to pin down and that’s what makes him this week’s local selector.
This particular mix leans on the heavier side of things, while maintaining a Traumprinz-esque coolness throughout. Give it a listen below!
