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.”
Sub One is a pioneer of the Sarajevo underground music scene, influencing the generation of clubbers and clubbing culture in Bosnia and Herzegovina at the turn of the Millennium.
Visit of the techno-nomads like “Spiral Tribe”, “Desert Storm Sound System” and others to the post-war Sarajevo in mid-nineties left a big mark on him shifting his life focus and love to electronic music.
From the beginning he embraced the Drum Code, Primate, Cocoon, Plus 8, Devil’s Choice -alike Techno on vinyl which influenced his later style of music. In Sarajevo, his residence and party home base, he organized numerous events for the growing tech community and other music enthusiasts for almost a decade.
Involved in Sarajevo electronic music scene from its very beginning in 1996, Sub One started playing under the mentorship of famous Sarajevo DJ Enis Voloder and other members of the “Interactive Music Association” which included both Bosnian and English musicians. This is where he first met the turntables, learned skills and gained deep love for vinyls, synthesizers, drum machines, electronic music culture and started creating his first vinyl collection.
Extensive experience on dj booth, cooperation with local and foreign artists, promotional organisation “Positive Sound”, and successful events at incredible locations (including the devastated ‘Sarajka Mall’ – one of Sarajevo’s symbols from its socialist past); encouraged Sub One for deeper search of a unique sound signature and experiences for his performances.
Tight, harmonic and deep groove makes his style in studio production and mixes very recognisable, while the mystical and emotional atmospheres, tribal elements and hypnotic sound design are combined in creation of ever evolving Sub One music experience.
