I recon John D might be Ireland’s greatest hero. My reasons? Howzabout his productions that have been supported by heavyweights Secretsundaze, Running Back and his very own Feel Music label. How about his incredible work ethic (sending Gerd Janson 60 tracks he banged out 3 weeks ..and those were just the first rate ones #doublegulp). Most importantly John has a rare ability to switch between the grandiose and the gritty. Sea Level (Haze Mix) is earth endingly majestic while his Belfast Boiler Room is a fiendish beastly offering. Tonight prepare to get lost in meandering patterns, labyrinth samples and analogue weaponry. ‘Tape Throb Master’ The Cyclist joins him on the bill – I’m forecasting wind machine cheeks and cantering footloose brain waves. Dip djs will provide soakage in the Beer garden while the analog biys Stephen + Vladimir will bounce about the Ballroom. Thanks to eat a peach doesn’t Sunday have an overwhelming bang of brilliant? / Rachel Hegarty
