Local Selection is a series where we get Ireland’s top resident DJ’s to provide a mix exclusively for us. Up next we have house and disco DJ/Producer Fio Fa. A resident with ‘Pear Dublin’ Fio provides us with an hour of house and disco.
How did your collective Pear come about and what’s your involvement in it?
I started pear about a year ago now basically because I wanted to DJ out in clubs more and just to have fun parties!
It’s really started to gain a following with you getting a slot at life festival, how did you first get into DJ’ing?
Yeah its been a deadly summer of gigs! My older sister is a DJ who’s part of the dip collective, going to their parties and hearing the music they played got me wanting to DJ too, I got a set of decks and took it from there!
What was the idea around this mix?
No real idea with this one, just some tracks I’ve been into lately!
What did you record it on?
A pioneer mixer, 2 cdjs and 1 turntable.
