The Local Selection Mix returns with jarring mix of techno, breaks, electro & ghetto house from DDR resident, Katie Tynan. The up and coming selector has provided a bold and bouncy selection of up-tempo cuts, an abundance of playful samples and efficacious beats make for a thrilling ride.
Katie takes great influence from ghetto house legends such as DJ Deeon and DJ Godfather, the young selector finds joy in blending these with homegrown influences and old school flavours such as rave classics and hard house. Tynan’s mixing etiquette can be described as raw and rapid. Katie thrives in quick mixing and mixing off the fly, the adrenaline of fast paced and somewhat dubious mixing excites the young selector.
The Dublin based selector is still quite new to DJ’ing after only picking it up a year ago and what was once a hobby has now become an obsession and passion project. Some early mixes with DDR helped shape the selectors sound and offered a platform to showcase where she was at musically. Further mixes for Wwwirl and Laetitia gave Tynan the confidence to look for some gigs and approach DDR for a monthly slot on the station.
Katie’s my first gig came in October of 2021 in Wigwam for the opening weekend for nightclubs. The landmark gig for Tynan went down a treat and displayed her skill as DJ in a club setting.
Katie’s Local Selection Mix is a brisk and playful trip through Katie’s favourite genres. The young selector runs through techno to trance to bassy experiments with great ease. Quick transitions and genre switches make for a playful and audacious trip.
