Today’s premiere comes from Aran Moore and Sean O’Sullivan as they debut their first track under their HyperFunk alias ahead of their first EP ‘HyperFunk 001’ which releases this weekend. The pair are notoriously known for their involvement in The Lounge which has been synonymous with some of the coolest parties Dublin has seen since their inception 2 years ago.
HyperFunk was born out of the brainchild of The Lounge co-creator’s love and admiration for groove-based, feel-good dance music. Formerly known as The Lounge Residents they have enjoyed an illustrious 2 years running their acclaimed party right across Dublin City. The pair have enjoyed immense success in this short period, accumulating a lucrative slot at last year’s Fuinneamh Festival while also supporting a wealth of dedicated local and international artists like MCR-T, Bailey Ibbs, Scruz, Shadylines, Dylan Fogarty, Pagan, Juicy Selekta, Tyvion Valentine, High Fidelity and more during this notable two year period running and playing shows.
As promoters, The Lounge has cut their teeth in Dublin in venues like Tengu, Wigwam, The Grand Social and more where they have welcomed the likes of 1905, DJ Pirna, Síofra, Becky, IZCO, Kjinn and more over the last 2 years providing a positive and fresh platform for exciting and capable artists to showcase their abilities to an exciting Irish crowd. This bank holiday weekend HyperFunk, Sella and Rían take to Cellar for their first EP launch party and 2nd birthday party as a party all-in-one. Tickets can be picked up here.
