Our first local selection mix of the year comes from one of Ireland’s most prolific DJ’s & producers, Nathan Jones aka, Snakebite 616. The Dublin native has pieced together a blend of jackin’ & menacing techno rhythms, from bonafide techno anthems to niche grooves.
Only a trickle of techno selectors in Ireland have a resume that comes even close to Snakebite 616’s fka Nathan Jones. The seasoned selector has held his own alongside Jeff Mills, DJ Pete, Ben Ufo, Blawan, Chris Libeing, Cari Lekebusch, Shifted and a many more, as well as holding it down in Berlin & The UK on numerous occasions, once again on immense lineups.
Since Nathan settled upon his fresh alias, Snakebite 616 the DJ & producer has received great success and seem’s to be reaching his great magnum opus. His track ‘Right Of Passage’ released on the newly born ‘Ogham Records’ is ageing like a fine wine, as we run further away from the release date, the track seems to be garnering even more applause. Receiving support from DJ’s all through Ireland & Europe, and has been an absolute staple in any set I was lucky enough to play last year.
For the inaugural Local Selection Mix of 2022, we present Snakebite 616 as he’s dispensed a top-tier, high octane techno workout. If you’ve been missing the dance floor I would suggest you stay far away from this mix, as it’s got echoes of dark dance floors displayed all over it. Brisk mixing, top selections, billowing baselines and skills to match them, this is a memoir to your dance floor respite.
Tracks coming from DJ Rush, Binny, Jeff Mills, Planetary Assault Systems, The Horrorist, & more.
