Between Ourselves – DHD Living Room Session #16

DHD Live Livingroom Sessions #16 presents Waterford’s production sensation Between Ourselves​. Their tracks have already been noticed and played by one of the KEINEMUSIK​ bosses, &ME​ in his radio shows.

A Waterford based trio, consisting of Geoff Foley, Stephen O’ Keeffe and Davin Coady, formed from their mutual passion and love for electronic music. Meeting at local nights, such as RePublik and The Club Sessions, the three instantly clicked and decided to work together. Geoff and Stephen had been organising their own Esoteric events and Davin had been learning production from a young age, it made sense to the three that they should collaborate. Now with remixes on Three Hands Records and a debut EP on RePublik Music Recordings including a stunning remix from Innervisions/Maeve artist Aera, the lads have gained a lot of support locally and globally with the likes of Frankey & Sandrino, Kollektiv Turmstrasse, Mano le Tough, The Drifter, Job Jobse, Kris Davis and many more displaying their music on dance floors worldwide. Keep an ear out as they continue to work on new productions and live sets for the future.

Chugging Edits – DHD International Series #07

Essex slo-mo sex machine, a true rare gems digger, an amateur, as he calls himself, who does this just for fun and spreading wonderful music. Well, at least that was his plan but it seems that there are many people around the globe that like what he does. His mixes on Soundcloud are so smooth and selection breathtaking. To be honest, it was really hard to write anything about him because he prefers that his music speaks instead of him. During last few months while I was abusing him for his tracklists, we became sort of friends so we invited him to record a mix for DHD International Series and here it is. Enjoy!

Ste Flynn (1st h), Carl Dunne (2nd h), Ste Flynn b2b Carl Dunne (3rd h)- DHD Livingroom Sessions #11

On January the 26th, Dublin’s Melodic​ are celebrating their 6th Birthday with Lindstrøm [Live] & Luca Bacchetti at Yamamori Tengu. That was reason enough to invite Melodic residents Ste Flynn​ and Carl Dunne​ to join us in our 11th Living Room Session next Monday.

From humble beginnings come great things. Melodic is 6. It has grown from a one-off party in a 150 capacity basement into one of Dublin’s most respected clubbing brands.Melodic has thrown parties in practically every club in the city, brought their sound around Europe – from London to Ibiza and Berlin. More recently, they have settled comfortably into a monthly residency in the intimate surrounds of Yamamori Tengu​.

Founders Mulljoy​ have carefully curated their events from the beginning. They have had the pleasure of debuting many acts and welcoming some of their own heroes into the booth for some hugely memorable nights. Stand out acts over the years include Guy J​, Nick Warren​, François K​, Ian Pooley​, Patrice Baumel​, Aril Brikha​, Kenny Larkin​, Ripperton​, Marc Romboy​, Kölsch​, Sebo K​ … to name a few.

“Given the occasion, we felt it appropriate to celebrate it properly and have enlisted the help of two of our very favourite DJ / Producers in Lindstrom​ and Luca Bacchetti​. Two very different acts but two very much at the top of their game in each of their respected musical fields. One is the undisputed Space-Disco King. The other a master of deep, rhythmic melody.”

“We urge you to join us in celebrating 6 years on January 26th across two floors in Yamamori Tengu. It will be house, techno, disco, deep, emotive – but always Melodic.”

Disco Screaming In Me – mixed by Viktor Marina

Disco is a musical style originating in the early 1970s that remained urban and largely underground until the middle of the decade when it began to emerge from America’s urban nightlife scene, where it had been curtailed to house parties and makeshift discotheques, and began making regular appearances mainstream, gaining popularity and increasing airplay on radio. It achieved popularity during the mid-1970s to the early 1980s. Its initial audiences in the U.S. were club-goers from the gayAfrican AmericanItalian American,[1][2] Latino, and psychedelic communities in PhiladelphiaChicagoSan Francisco, and New York City during the late 1960s and early 1970s. Disco can be seen as a reaction against both the domination of rock music and the stigmatization of dance music by the counterculture during this period. Disco was popular with both men and women from many different backgrounds, with dances including the Bump and the Hustle.

The disco sound often has several components, a “four-on-the-floor” beat, an eighth note (quaver) or 16th note (semi-quaver) hi-hat pattern with an open hi-hat on the off-beat, and a prominent, syncopated electric bass line. In most disco tracks, string sections, horns, electric piano, and electric rhythm guitars create a lush background sound. Orchestral instruments such as the flute are often used for solo melodies, and lead guitar is less frequently used in disco than in rock. Many disco songs use electronic synthesizers, particularly in the late 1970s.

Well-known 1970s and 1980s disco performers included: Vicki Sue RobinsonYvonne EllimanGrace JonesDivineLimeThelma HoustonDiana RossCherCheryl LynnDonna Summer, the Bee GeesBoney M.Claudja BarryBilly OceanCerroneDan HartmanMadonnaMiquel BrownChaka KhanKC and the Sunshine Bandthe TrammpsMarlena ShawSylvesterVillage PeopleGloria GaynorAmii Stewart, and Chic. While performers and singers garnered much public attention, record producers working behind the scenes played an important role in developing the “disco sound”. Many non-disco artists recorded disco songs at the height of disco’s popularity, and films such as Saturday Night Fever (1977) and Thank God It’s Friday (1978) contributed to disco’s rise in mainstream popularity. Disco was the last mass popular music movement that was driven by the baby boom generation. Disco was a worldwide phenomenon, but its popularity drastically declined in the United States in 1980, and by 1982 it had lost most of its mainstream popularity in the states. Disco Demolition Night, an anti-disco protest held in Chicago on July 12, 1979, remains the most well-known of several “backlash” incidents across the country that symbolized disco’s declining fortune.

By the late 1970s, most major U.S. cities had thriving disco club scenes, where DJs would mix a seamless sequence of dance records. Studio 54, a venue popular among celebrities, is a well-known example of a disco club. Popular dances included the Hustle, a sexually suggestive dance. Discotheque-goers often wore expensive, extravagant and sexy fashions. There was also a thriving drug subculture in the disco scene, particularly for drugs that would enhance the experience of dancing to the loud music and the flashing lights, such as cocaine and Quaaludes, a drug that was so common in disco subculture that it was nicknamed “disco biscuits”. Disco clubs were also sometimes associated with promiscuity.

Disco was a key influence in the later development of electronic dance music and house music. Disco has had several revivals, including in 2005 with Madonna‘s highly successful album Confessions on a Dance Floor, and again in 2013 and 2014, as disco-styled songs by artists like Daft Punk (with Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers), Justin TimberlakeBreakbot, and Bruno Mars—notably Mars’ “Uptown Funk“—filled the pop charts in the UK and the US.
