This week’s Local Selection Mix comes from one of our favourite Irish DJs at the moment, Caoimhe. The thriving up and comer has provided yet another excellent trip through her record stacks, running through tribal, house, acid, techno, breaks and a whole lot more.
County Antrim native Caoimhe began her DJ career in early 2019 and quickly rose through the ranks, catching the eyes of industry tastemakers in Ireland and the UK. Caoimhe had won three major DJ competitions in quick succession including a Breezeblock event to support Octo Octa, the AVA Festivals emerging DJ competition and the Mixmag and Coors Light DJ contest.
These competitions led to Caoimhe supporting Octa Octa for Breezeblock who have been running some of Belfasts best club nights, opening up the coveted main stage at AVA Festival which is no mean feet for any DJ and lastly throwing it down at the Lab London for Mixmag.
In 2021 Caoimhe was nominated for best Irish Electronic artist in the Hot Press reader’s poll and was voted number 5 overall and at the start of 2022 joined the list of legendary NI artists like Kessler who have recorded at HÖR Berlin!
Caoimhe has a broad spanning sound that routes around house, acid and electro. The County Antrim native superbly executes long and short blends with adroitness and ferocity when needed. Caoimhe has been known to play a rather uptempo and pumping style of house music, with lots of catchy vocals, bouncy baselines and uplifting chords.
Caoimhe’s carefully selected a varied yet perfectly crafted hour of selections for her Local Selection Mix. Jolting chords, squelchy acid, syncopated drum rhythms, jacking house anthems…this mix is ticking all the right boxes, perfect for the start, middle or end of the party. Caoimhe maintains the energy with supreme poise and pulls the trigger at the pinical moments. This is your Wednesday soundtrack.
