Continuing our explorations of deep electronic sounds we are delighted to announce Shackleton will be appearing for the first time in Belfast @ The Black Box on Saturday 13th of June 2009.
As well as the dubstep pioneer we've also got one of Ireland's very own trailblazers in the form of Micky from NakedLunch, he was just too good at the menagerie not to get back again.
Also on the bill, your old pals the rudimentary DJs.
This is going to be one heavyweight gig.
Shackleton co-runs Skull Disco with Appleblim. His maverick take on big bass-lines and complex beats doesn't fit into easy categories and that's how it's going to stay. He has been carving out his own brand of eclecticism on Skull Disco releases with intricate, snaking percussion, hypnotic melodies, seriously deep bass lines and dubwise sensibilities.
Shackleton doesn't make the trip over here very often so this is a rare chance to catch him in action.
Hailing from Carlow, via the netherlands, Micky formerly known as DJ Pressure is the main man behind NakedLunch, a label releasing killer electronic music crossing the divide between dubstep, techno and blissed out electronica. With releases from stellar talents like Breakage, TRG and Instra:Mental already in the bag, and cuts lined up from Scuba and Jus Wan you can expect NakedLunch to blow up in a big way in the near future. Micky's DJ'ing is exceptional, as his many mixes available from his myspace will testify.
