With a debut release coming at the back end of 2020, plus a new remix and even more releases to come, Aeron kicks off 2021 with a fascinating retrospective 2.5 hour mix, consisting of acts who have played in the mighty District 8 since it’s inception.
Aeron has been working tirelessly at the helm of the Dublin based ‘Research‘ record label for years now, while being one of the brilliant minds behind Fuinneamh festival and a number of gigs promoted in and around Dublin. It would be no lie to say that the world of Irish dance music would be very different without his input.
For this special mix, Aeron presents something quite special; Two and a half hours of music exclusively from artists who have played in District 8 down the years. From District 8’s inception of the club at the Tivoli Theatre, this mix features the likes of Rødhåd, Blawan, Steffi and Surgeon, right up to some more recent favourites like Amelie Lens, FJAAK and I Hate Models.
Needless to say, these international artists are in very good company alongside the finest in Irish homegrown talent. This mix is an excellent example of Aeron’s fluid mixing style, as he moves through the deep, acidic sounds of Lee Kelly and the more intense and hypnotic music of Cailín with ease. Featuring a premier of his own remix for FLAEN, this mix also shows his skills as a talented producer.
Strap yourselves in and get ready for an extended mix of unrelenting techno…
