After taking a little break wherein Gary spent most of it sticking his chest out and gloating about some national press coverage (fuck yis, I just told me ma) it’s time for himself n’ The Gang to get back to it on Friday 27th of June and it’s time for a lil celebration....
We’re struggling to think of many / any Irish labels that can profess to be entering their 3rd decade of existence and this year sees the inimitable D1 Recordings do just that. As a platform for introducing the world to the first wave of Irish techno producers such as Rob Rowland and Donnacha Costello it’s importance can’t be undermined. Legendary parties and a hugely influential record shop only add importance to it’s place in Irish dance music’s history. It also built early ties with the original Techno City, Detroit, and long standing relationships with the likes of Underground Resistance, Keith Tucker and Dj Bone were formed, with D1 even becoming one of UR’s international foot soldiers (whatever the fuck that means).
It’s influence on the Irish electronic music scene has been non-stop since it’s inception, let’s not forget the sorely missed DEAF Festival too. Oh we could go on...but we won’t.
So to celebrate 20 years of all that bizness, The Gang has asked D1 main man Eamonn Doyle to come play some records for us. He’s rather good at it too. So you should come and join in the celebrations, shouldn’t you?
On support is gang member Sam Kay, who probably couldn’t even wipe his own arse when D1 started.

PS - Lunar Disko have Objekt playing on Saturday night in Button Factory for some o’ that weekender buzz. We can’t offer you a deal on tickets for both nights cause Gary’s is always free in, ya turkey.
But we’ll expect to see you at both.
