We were supposed to have Collie Mckenna & Ryan Hayden (Illicit Showcase) as part of our DHD Livingroom Sessions but because of the Ophelia hurricane in Ireland that day, Ryan couldn’t make it so Collie had his own showcase and we are sure that the rest of the Ilicit boys are proud.
Starting up in October of 2015, illicit have been hosting underground partys all over Dublin City, starting of with their weekly partys at Sweeney’s Basement in Dublin until its closure back in June of 2016. Since then, illicit has blossomed into one of the most respected up & coming Irish collectives, hosting international guests such as De Sluwe Vos, Kevin Over, Jacob B & Cal Johnstone but to name a few. With sell out shows at the infamous Dublin venue Button Factory aswell as hosting the Baby Box room at Ministry Of Sound in London for their 1st Birthday, 2016 had been a solid year for the illicit team.
2017 has been just as successful pulling of some massive shows including illicit’s District 8 debut with Aussie disco legend Late Nite Tuff Guy, renowned sets at a number of festivals including MASS, Solas & Fuinneamh from a number of residents, aswell as being fresh from their exploits at Sunderland for their second international appearance as they teamed up with the infamous Haze Records to host the Boom Room of Independent in October of this year.
The illicit residents each hold their own unique sound, possesing versitile mixing skills & track selection, making them a perfect team of DJ’s for whatever your taste may be.
Originally from Poland, Maciej Pietruczuk currently calls Dublin Ireland home where he is an active DJ in the deep progressive music scene. Through many different sub-genres of house music that Maciej plays he’s able to perfectly find the dance floor rhythm at any party. House music for Maciej is not simply music, but its also his lifestyle – his compassionate vision of world around him.
Right from the early days when he fell in love with the deeper sounds, it motivated him to hone his skill in his private home studio and once he perfected his flawless techniques he shared his sounds with dance floors big and small.
To describe Maciej’s live DJ sets is a difficult task, but to put it into a few words: they are extremely lush with sound letting your body burst with energy and filling your mind with the warmest memories. Every set he serves up an explosive mixture of house, techno and progressive rhythms. Even the most fussy and picky clubbers will have their needs fulfilled through Maciej’s skill behind the decks. His ability to connect to the crowd and the positive feedback he receives is a testament to the ever growing respect he garners as a rising DJ.
