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.

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!
