Our second and third premiere of the day comes from Dublin based label Research, as we feature label head and long standing pillar of the Irish techno scene Aeron X T C, plus equally longstanding Irish producer Mode_1’s tracks.

This incredible 7 track compilation features a selection of talented Irish electronic artists, who have all submitted tracks to this compilation in aid of supporting the people of Palestine. 100% of the proceeds goes to this very worthy cause.


From the label:

In Palestine today, land is being stolen from families. Their houses are demolished to make way for illegal settlements. We’ve put together 7 tracks from some of our favourite Irish artists to help the children and innocent civilians in their battle for freedom.

Aeron X T C, the Research, Index and Fuinneamh frontman brewed up a carefully constructed storm with his debut release ‘When We Dance Again’. An atmospheric and poignant journey of a track, synonymous of the times it was released in. 

Aeron X T C’s subsequent release picks up where the last left off; smooth pads and synths drifting over you like waves of soothing electricity before gentle highs creep in and build, unleashing in the track the immersive atmosphere for which the he has become so renowned.  Every so often a new layer swoops in, increasing depth and tension until subtlety subdues and  a flurry of snare rolls propel the track into a frantic, frenzied workout.

Longstanding Subject and Index resident, Mode_1 has garnered a name for himself as one of the most consistent and exciting releasing Irish artists of his time, gaining the respect of Slam & Fiedel to boot along the way.

Uncompromising and utterly enthralling, ‘Close’ proves the Dublin native’s acclaim is more than merited.  An undulating baseline drives the track with serious intent while an analogue riff dances around it, squirming in and out of the high and low-end of the filter gauge. The release is a true testament to his production skills, with expertly layered elements colluding to construct an engrossing atmosphere; equal parts uplifting and energising while maintaining the menacing and dark qualities of which his sound has become renowned.
