Alienate launched their weekly techno livestreams direct from Dublin City last month. We take a look at some of the highlights from the first 4 editions of the series, with mixes from Dylan Fogarty, Doug Cooney, Offtrack, Emmie, Meda & more.

One of Dublin’s newest trailblazers in pushing non-compromising, quality, grassroots techno, is the Alienate team. The relatively new name in Dublin nightlife has been responsible for a resurgence in raw and honest techno reaching our dancefloors on a regular basis. With bookings such as Remco Beekwilder, The Advent, P.E.A.R.L., DJ Speed, DJ Frequency, Aero, and more, the team are on a mission to bring funk-laced techno to the forefront of the Dublin techno-scene.

Their latest venture comes in the form of a weekly livestream which invites local talent to lay down hour-long mixes in a Dublin City venue live on their YouTube channel. The mix series has been a huge success so far, with a number of stellar mixes being supplied from local talent.

We look at some of the standout mixes from the series so far.

Dylan Fogarty

Multi-decks madness from Dublin’s prince of techno, Fogarty shows his range on this one, moving through new-school sharp grooves, house-licked Chicago cuts and bone-crushing 909 jams.

Erik Burka

The Disintegrated boss lays down a playful hour of party anthems and tribal bangers as he showcases his fun-loving style of mixing. Blistering 90’s weapons right through to disco-soaked techno cuts, the Hidden Love resident brings the funk on this one.

Doug Cooney

RLSD boss Doug Cooney flexes his guns on this hour mix with a selection of infamous power grooves. The seasoned selector runs through dizzying hypnotic cuts right through to ’90s-tinged screwface bangers and dystopian broken anthems.


Emmie has been turning heads within the techno scene of late as she showcases a deep knowledge of late 90s and early 00s techno. The youngster steps up with a slick selection of Neopiltan-style grooves, easily weaving in and out of dub-leaning power cuts and slinky syncopated grooves.


A young master, Offtrack, steps up with a shrewd selection of techno mixed entirely on wax. The Mullingar native simmers through ethereal 90s nuances into punchy bleep-driven tools with great proficiency. No stone is unturned here, as Offtrack blends through a number of grooves, further flexing his deep understanding of the genre that he has dedicated so many years to.


Amsterdam-based Meda displays her driving sound as she takes no prisoners with her contribution to the Alientate live stream series. Meda turns up the heat as she blasts through a number of menacing groove-focused techno tools, bouncing from shrewd locked loops to punishing 90s cuts with ease.
