Nightflight DJs

The Grand Social, Dublin 2, Monday 31 December 2012
Doors 8pm- 3am. Advance Tickets €15 available from Resident Advisor

Nightflight is proud to announce that it will be taking over both floors of the Grand Social this New Years Eve to host an extravaganza of Irish talent. With a mixture of both live and DJ acts, this is not only a celebration to ring in 2013, but a celebration of the finest electronic music that Ireland has to offer.

Headlining the bill will be a live performance from NEW JACKSON, famed for their nocturnal house jams with a ghostly disco tint. The combination of Diamond Dagger and David Kitt has resulted in some memorable and epic performances this year. With one hugely successful release down, ‘The Night Mail’, New Jackson’s second EP lands early in 2013 on Catalan label, Hivern Discs, which is also home to music from Spanish leading lights John Talabot and Pional.

SHIPS, the new musical project from Simon Cullen and Sorca McGrath, have delivered some outstanding live performances in Dublin over the past 12 months. Electronic disco music at its finest, think the best parts of DFA and you have an idea of what these guys sound like. The two met a few years back and after an extended period of hanging out, sizing up, and sound searching, they finally got around to making some music. Simon and Sorca aim to combine their ideas and their passion for sounds that urge you to move and they are a firm favourite at Nightflight HQ.

After a storming set supporting Lindstrom in the Button Factory back in August, and more recently an incredible Sunday night jam at The Bernard Shaw, Nightflight is delighted to welcome ‘I AM THE COSMOS’ aboard their NYE flight. Expect a delicious blend of lo-fi vocals and pulsating bass lines that always cause a stir on the dancefloor.

Going beyond the pale, Nightflight has travelled to Waterford to procure the services of GET DOWN EDITS, who will by laying down some disco edits along side house and party classics in their own unique style. In recent years the guys have been busy running and promoting their own “Get Down” and in the summer of 2011 they launched their own record label. Since then their releases have been receiving huge support from the likes of Greg Wilson, The Revenge, Jacques Renault, among many others. The lads have been prolific in the studio this year and there should be some serious disco finger action in the Grand Social for their set.

WHITE COLLAR BOY is a two piece electronic garage group from Dublin. Gavin White and Mark Cummins met at Primavera Sound in Barcelona in 2011 and their shared passion for electronic composition inevitably led the pair to merge their creative endeavours. After a blistering performance supporting JAPE at Nightflight’s Halloween party, they were immediately asked to be on the bill for the NYE Flight.

HANDSOME PADDY also joins the bill and has been a long time darling of Nightflight. One of
Choice Cuts main support DJs, he is, quite simply, one of the finest DJs Ireland has to offer. His scratching skills can be heard on the recent Fatty Fatty rework of Terence Parker’s mix Summer Madness. Expect a master class in cutting, scratching and blending as he seamlessly works his way through genre after genre.

NIGHTFLIGHT PRESENT : JAPE & JAY SHEPHEARD – SATURDAY 3RD NOVEMBER

Beefing up our monthly residency and helping us to blow out the candles on the Grand Social birthday cake we’ve hauled in deep house dj/producer and Retrofit label boss JAY SHEPHEARD for his debut show in Ireland who will be joined in stage by local hero JAPE.

Following a background behind the scenes in the dance music industry, first in music PR then seven years at UK online music store Juno Records, Jay Shepheard has gone on to build a reputation as one of the key figures in the new wave of electronic music.

Starting in back in 2007 with nu-discoid favourite “Pipes’n'Sneakers” on Munich’s Compost Black Label, Jay has gone on to release productions and remixes with a diverse range of influential labels including Buzzin Fly, Rebirth, Freerange and Diynamic. These releases have consistently achieved critical acclaim from DJs, music lovers and the press alike and earned him nominations for Best Deep House act of 2007 and Best Nu Disco act of 2009 in the Beatport Music Awards. Clocking up a RA podcast this year coupled with tours of Australia, the U.S.A and Europe, along a double remix of Penguin Prison, we’re delighted to have Jay booked in for a special Live/DJ show…

Also on the bill is Nightflight favourite, JAPE who began in 2003 as a solo project of Dublin musician Richard Egan. Over the years, the band has evolved to become one of Ireland’s most exciting and energetic live acts blending meticulously crafted lyrics with upbeat electronic rhythms.

Using an innovative mix of live instruments, hardware samplers and sequencers, the band create a sound that encompasses many different styles and spans genres and JAPE their storming performance at Airbound in Croatia in 2009 has lived long in memory. They have been covered by The Raconteurs and won the prestigious Choice Music Prize in 2008. Jape has since toured extensively and produced an array of new material, some of which we hope to hear on November 3rd.

Doors open at 8pm and tickets will be on sale very soon priced at €15, stay tuned to www.thegrandsocial.ie and www.night-flight-music.com for more ticket and linne-up info TBA……

LINDSTROM | Button Factory | Aug 18th

Nightflight & Hidden Agenda Present:

LINDSTROM (Feedelity, Oslo) [LIVE]

+ Support

I AM THE COSMOS

Button Factory, Dublin 2, Saturday 18th August,
Doors 11pm, Tickets €15 via Ticketmaster

Norway’s Hans-Peter Lindstrom makes a rare live performance at the Button Factory on Saturday, 18th August. It’s been five years since his last Dublin show so we are really excited about this. Support on the night comes from Irish space cowboys, I am the Cosmos.

Raised on country and western music in the outskirts of the Norwegian oil town Stavanger, Hans-Peter Lindstrøm now lives in Oslo where he is making contemporary disco and running his Feedelity label. Claiming that “Hans-Peter Lindstrom is closing in on Henrik Ibsen and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as being Norway’s poster boy of choice” is obviously quite an overstatement, but nonetheless his original approach to dance music is currently causing quite a stir.

Hans-Peter never listened to dance music growing up, and the first time he really listened to it, was a few years back figuring out how to make it. He prefers quiet nights in with his family, and Hans Peter never really goes clubbing unless he’s Lindstrom. As for artistic background, he used to play the piano in a gospel choir and the Hammond organ in a Deep Purple tribute band in his early twenties, before getting into Bob Dylan and folk/country music. Around 99′ he got all fed up with music, sold his instruments, and moved from Stavanger to study literature at the University of Oslo. As retirement often proves unbearable to music lovers, he soon found himself busking the main street of Oslo with his guitar. One thing led to the other: he bought a sampler, borrowed a few 12″s to study the structure of dance music, and had a go at it.

Since then Lindstrom has helped to put Norway on the 21st Century disco map with a string of cosmic releases on his self-run Feedelity imprint, as well as floor-burning remixes for LCD Soundsystem and Franz Ferdinand. His ‘I Feel Space’ cut has become a timeless underground anthem, making it’s way into DJ boxes right across the spectrum . His distinctive brand of freaky-deaky funk, disco, cosmic boogie and otherworldly house and techno sounds has rocked clubs and festivals in the four corners of the globe.

Most of all, this is a unique opportunity to see one of contemporary dance music’s leading lights live on the Button Factory stage. An unforgettable night is promised!!

Francois K (Deep Space, New York) | Button Factory | July 21st

Francois K (Deep Space, New York)

Button Factory | Saturday 21 July | Doors 11pm | Tickets €15

Legendary DJ or the bloke from Grand Theft Auto depending on your age. It will be exactly four years since he last played the ‘flight and we look forward to having him back in the Buttoner. We’re not giving him any musical genre to stick to and did we mention he’ll can play all night long if he wants.

Dance music legend Francois K has been djing on-and-off for over 30 years. Three decades: a span of time that signifies a longevity seldom seen in the industry. And when you look at the course of his career, it becomes even more impressive. Kevorkian started out playing drums alongside Walter Gibbons, the man often credited with being the main inspiration to Larry Levan and Frankie Knuckles, and soon became a regular guest at Studio 54, The Paradise Garage, and The Loft. After a short layoff to concentrate on small projects such as remixing now-classic tracks like Yazoo’s “Situation,” Dinosaur L’s “Go Bang,” and Musique’s “In the Bush”, mixing Depeche Mode’s epochal Violator and Kraftwerk’s Electric Café, Kevorkian returned to the heights of the DJ profession alongside Danny Krivit and Joe Claussell as a member of the Body & Soul trio. The group’s Sunday parties at Club Vinyl are still reminisced over in glowing terms.

Kevorkian’s current party, Deep Space, has been tipped as the heir to B&S’s legacy. Held each Monday at Cielo in New York’s Meatpacking District, the soiree drafts in an eclectic array of guests (Quiet Village, Pearson Sound, Todd Terje, to name but a few) and asks them to deliver sets that reflect Kevorkian’s passion for deepness.
