We welcome Cork based duo Southern Division to the Local Selection hotseat today, as they provide us with an hour of power, featuring a whole heap of the good stuff.
We caught a set from the Southern Division‘s live stream a number of months back, as they provided a guest mix for the mighty Dali club night in Cork. The mix was full of vintage techno from the golden era, mixed nice and fast with plenty of energy. We absolutely loved it, so we had to track the lads down and request a mix for our series.
If you’re unfamiliar with Southern Division, here’s a brief background. The techno duo are from the depths of West Cork and having played together at a number of gatherings and realising their shared love for similar styles and sounds, the pair decided to join forces and it wasn’t long before they started to make a name for themselves as Southern Division. Having appeared on multiple guest mix series and most recently playing a 2 hour set for Dali’s live stream during the summer, we expect to see plenty more of the pair once clubs can safely reopen.
Their style consists of raw underground and heavy grooves, taking inspiration from techno legends, such as The Advent, Chris Liebing, Player, Kaiser and User to name a few.
You can listen the Southern Division’s excellent mix on loop all weekend, plus be sure to follow the duo on their SoundCloud here.
