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.
