This week’s Mix Of The Week comes from North Dublin wonder-kid DART, as he shares the recording from his headline show at Index on New Years Eve. One of Dublin’s most celebrated party starters brought a flurry of classic rave anthems and old-school ecstasy laced bangers to ring in the new year.
DART ended a juggernaut of a year in style as the Finglas native arrived at Dublin’s prime venue for house and techno Index for his debut headline show. The Dublin city herded the crowd into a frenzy with a collection of rave soaked weapons to celebrate the turn of the year.
Dublin’s answer to Job Jobse left the big room house bangers at home and opted for an amalgamation of unadulterated warehouse tools. DART’s set echoed the Dublin rave scene of old, bringing a definitive Irish sound to a new audience.
From rough neck breaks, trance licked leads, bass rollers, piano house anthems and everything in between, DART manages to capture a moment in time, and deliver an overwhelming sense of déjà vu on the perfect occasion. This is a proper DJ at work, and this recording will make the hair stand up on your neck and fill your forearms with goosebumps while your hips are shaking uncontrollably.
