Michael Forshaw & DJ Mustard Gunn in Dublin

After a memorable debut event at last October’s DEAF, we decided that we couldn’t just leave it there – and moving to the smaller, sweatier surroundings of The Underground @ Kennedy’s for our next gig, we welcome Michael Forshaw and DJ Mustard Gunn as our international guests on February 6th.

Michael Forshaw is a legend in his field. His label Chan ‘n’ Mikes has fashioned some of the craziest techno and electro of the last ten or so years - track and release titles like ‘I Love Horses’, ‘Cheerleaders’ or ‘Boyzone Make Me Wanna Smoke Crack’ have always demonstrated his humorous approach, but it’s the ruthless nature of his production that has set him apart. This is a long overdue return for Forshaw to play live in Dublin and a perfect way to kick off 2010 for us.

Making his Irish debut on the night is Coin Operated label head DJ Mustard Gunn. Coin Operated has been one of the best new labels of the last few years – showcasing a daring mix of UK bass styles from producers like Kanji Kinetic, 3d!t, Spaceface, The Squires Of Gothos and many others, with a friendly nod to the old skool. Mustard Gunn knows how to tear up the club and that’s exactly what he’s going to do when he gets here.

Completing the lineup is Redmonk, one of the craftiest DJs in the Dublin area,
as well as one of the masterminds behind the !Kaboogie collective, who have recently been pushing some sick new slabs of black plastic by some of the city’s best and most depraved producers.

Doors to The Underground @ Kennedy’s are at 10.30pm, with admission being a cool €10.
